Default 1/18th scale Forum

I love this site and really don't want to go to another site...
Think we could get a forum for us 1/18th scalers?

If it costs something to get one started ie extra bandwith for the site let me know maybe I could help!
Thanks!

Sean

I know there's a post in Electric On road about 1/18th scale's

I find one18th.com to be very slow and uninformative.

Me too. And the 1/18th scale stuff here in Wisconsin is still growing and I know there are some places that 18th has been big and growing. But I would really like to see aforum here on this site...my favorite site.

I like the smaller scales for racing my kids around the house. I've been seriously considering getting some on the RCP track sections and setting up a track in the house to screw around on instead of marking up the floors...

I like the Stuff because it's just to keep my non-skills up for Nitro season. And it really is fun!!

I want to get an M18, the only thing is I want to build it on the Motek Panther chassis so I can run my 6 cell packs. I hate to buy a whole kit just to replace everything on it. My son has the RS4, but I don't particulary care for the design, mostly how it holds the batteries. But we both have 18T's and I made up a bunch of GP1100 packs for them and really want to stay with 6 cell side by sides for the micro's.

Yah that is a very good point. I have a 18B coming how hard is it to build the smaller packs?

I really want to go LiPo in the little cars... a 2100 11.1v in my brushless RC18T would be ballistic....


Come on Shane, give us a Micro Scale forum....

I own every size car from 1/64 to 1/5th.... Although my Microsizers desperately need new tires, suckers dry rotted....

I support the idea of having a 1/16-1/18th scale forum as well.

There is a track that I race at the sells 800 MHa Lipos for 20.00 They are awesome batteries and he is a great guy to deal with.
