Well, I actually do part own, and operate, the longest standing track in Ohio ;)

If YOUR track has those issues, then I feel bad for you and them. We don't tolerate it, and it's not an issue here....

Your view of the area, appears a bit askew IMHO. A few years ago, we had 6-7 outdoor tracks all bringing in over 100 entries a weekend for club racing. The RC Pro series, was off the hook. The series...

I don't think there is money coming in from any sector of the rc racing market, and that is the underlying major issue. RC racing is in a decline everywhere.

Death to short course trucks?

Yeah, lets kill off the only segment of the hobby bringing in new people.

Reading comprehension is an important part of forum participation. I never said the holes didn't line up, holes are irrelevant, you can put them anywhere. I got told the same nonsense by about 50...

I DO know how to mount a body, that's the issue. Every losi body I tried sits way too high on the Tekno. Even with the body mounts chopped, and slammed to the towers they sit too high. You want the...

Like Zero said, you are probably pulling too many amps on the servo and it's either freaking out, or browning out the receiver. Make sure the servo isn't binding on brake or throttle by correcting...

For something that big, the cheapest alternative would probably be using a cheap go cart as the donor chassis and stretch that chassis to fit. I'm not sure how you would set of the steering, but the...
