Default NitroKB: Nitro Knowledge Base Reloaded

Hi guys,

I've been thinking about putting the Nitro Knowledge Base back online as an archived reference. I won't be maintaining it once it's up - but at least those new to the hobby can use it as a resource to learn about 1/10th on-road nitro racing.

Contents:
  • Kyosho V-ONE RRR and V-ONE RRR WC
  • Mugen MTX-4 - Scott Fisher's Notes, Jamie Corrado 2006 GLC Interview
  • Serpent 720, - Getting Started with DJ Apolaro, Danny Horta 2007 Winternats inteview
  • Team Magic G4S - The Gansei page
  • Team XRAY NT1
  • .12 Engines
  • Racer Profile: Robert Maestrey
  • Racer Profile: Roger Serafin
FAQs, tips, setup sheets and more!!

Any thoughts on this? Any concerns? Any negatives I should consider?

Thanks for your input!

Rainer

Nitrokb as a resource reflected what you could characterize as continuous improvement for some of the design and configuration issues for each car model.
Information that a racer could not get directly from a car manufacturer.
Wonder if there is some support could you get for posting this reference information?

Thanks guys!

I've never been really interested in making money off the site - not even advertisement revenue. Perhaps donations?

The site is almost done. I just need to add a new section for beginners that are new to the hobby that answers many of the questions that most people ask here. Then when they ask those questions, you can point them to the site.

If you want to put some of the articles on my site with a link, I can do that. I am getting a ton of traffic and am always looking to post up some tech articles (with permission, of course) to help fellow RC racers....

Hi rmdhawaii,

Your website had a lot of good info for the newbies, I say this because I was starting to 10th scale racing at that time and remember how I liked those information. Keep up good work!
