I'm not going to bother arguing with you about whether RTR ruined RC, but I will tell you that the fast pace of racers breaking parts NOT what built RC. Advancements in RC technology...

I use the soaking-in-acetone method, and I make sure to use wheels that are nylon so they don't dissolve in acetone. (nylon wheels are the only ones that can withstand hard hits anyway; ABS wheels...

Ugh. Another hack driver who controls his speed by blipping the throttle instead of actually using the proportional throttle the way it was designed to be used.

I don't race either, but I own 14 touring cars, most with raised suspensions so they can drive on cracked pavement without scraping. I've driven monster trucks on pavement, and it's fun in its own...

Is there any chance you're running slightly lean in an attempt to go as fast as they are, and actually making less power in the process? Aside from that, there are several parameters that could be...
