Hey everyone, new guy here from middle Georgia.

Picked up a Losi Ten MT after quite a bit of research and wanting a RTR. Ran it today for the first time running 2S 5200mah 50C and I have to say I am quite impressed with it. I have heard of guys running 3S in this truck and I can't imagine needing to go much faster lol.

Anyway I will be browsing the forum quite a bit, I know this truck isn't all that popular but I will contribute where I can.
LOSI TEN MT - 14t pinion, Dusty Motors cover, 7K center diff fluid, running 2S

Default new to rc tech

Been out of rc for a while, thought maybe I should do something with all the stuff I have accumulated. I have an old 2.5 tmaxx, extended chassis, hyper 21 motor that I would like to upgrade motor on. Looking for suggestions

Many Years off, started with a Tamiya Hot Shot, followed by a JRX-2, Schumacher Cat XLS, JRX-T, then took a few years off.

Came back years later with an HPI Nitro RS4 Losi XXX-CR, XXX-4, and XXX-S (Ya, I'm pretty much a Team Losi guy I guess haha)

Probably won't be racing any more, looking at getting a Crawler/Basher, hopefully something that can do a bit of both.

Hi, i'm new here. Realized this seemed to be the spot for 4 wheeled RC's so joined up.

Got back into hobby about two years ago mainly due to my (now) 5 year old son. We are having a blast, and i'm hooked now. Recently got into nitro for first time and enjoying that - the smell, noise, tuning, and blowing peoples mind when they see one for the first time.

Cars - Ofna Ultra, nitro Sport, Animus, Plasma Edge, Tamiya Dump Truck, Rustler, Summit 1/16, Hornet, Redcat Blackout, Smarttech 1/10 road (incoming)

Default Hello

Like the post says, I'm new and want to say HI. I've only had an RC car (4 now) since Spring. Planning to give Legends a try in a week or 2 when the season starts locally. Hoping its easier than it looks.

Howdy! New to R/C, been reading quite a bit. I am active on many firearms boards and wanted a hobby that I thought was going to not be as expensive. How wrong I was. Looking forward to some good builds in the future.

New to the forum! Not new to RC. I started with a e-revo and an X-ray T2 and expanded to Crawling a few months ago. Now my Team Associated PROSC will be here tomorrow.

Hey guys! I'm new to the forum but not new to R/C. I've been in the hobby for 5 years and joined to share my projects I've been working on. I'm hoping I can help out a lot of people on the forums, the community for R/C and everyone's willingness to help is one of the things that really sets it apart from other hobbies in my opinion.

Welcome ALL !!!
seeing new people getting into (or back into) the hobby is so cool !

flying takes up most of my R/C time but i started with a Tamiya buggy and have always had some sort of car or truck , buggy etc at the ready .. now that Cristmas 2017 is just a couple weeks away and it is getting cold ..i do my typical transition too "E" buggies and trucks.
I love the TLR and Associated 1/10th Buggy and ST stuff although i should cut a lot of it ,,if not all of it loose , as i just don't get the time to race .
I like to build , restore and tinker with any Tamiya , vintage , Re-re or modern.
thinking of ordering a CR-01 Unimog ..but they are just about out of stock all over , with the exception of Japan .
CR or CC-01 ..not certain what i want

Default Whats up?

Hey guys, I'm a total noob to the RC world but not new to racing. Picked up a used LSR XXX SCT a couple of weeks ago for a winter hobby. The ultimate goal would be to be able to compete at the local track and make some new friends. Looking forward to learning all I can. Jeff

Default New to rc

Hi everybody. I'm new to the hobby. Been into cars for a long time and have wanted an RC car since I was a kid. Finally it was time to build one! Ended up getting a Tamiya XV-01 Long Damper Spec and started my build. Hopefully I can find some good spots around Los Angeles for my rally car... If not I have a long driveway. Hahaha
