I agree with the suggestions to see what classes are popular at the track you plan on racing at. Around here, trucks went out of style faster than colored jeans, leaving me nobody to race against and...

Are you already a lap down from these guys? If not, don't pull over even once... you're racing them! If you are a lap down, my policy has always been to let them by once, but if they crash then the...

Looks like there’s a bearing stuck in one hub. If I can get it out, $40 shipped. If not, $25 shipped and you can try your luck with the bearing but still have a nice body either way.

I thought my biggest problem would be hastily pulling on the plug and eventually damaging the wires, but the biggest problem ended up being trying to check in for a heat and finding that I had...

Do you do the Sunday series at Camarillo? My son is thinking about trying some racing then, and I know he will have a better time and be more likely to return if he has other kids to play with. He...

Thanks for all your advice. I built the kit with no upgrades except for half of the screws which I already had the sizes in stainless. The wing mount keeps tweaking, so I will probably get an...

Once I got married and then had a child, I promised to have one hobby (of my own) at a time. Interestingly enough, the biggest determining factor in changing hobbies has been how well it works around...

The larger gears would make the motor position (and thus weight balance) slightly further forward than the smaller gears. That's about the only thing I can think of that would be affected. The only...

They do spin a tad more easily than they did on my 5M with a slipper, but there seems to be traction now that I got some weight in the back. I think the punch is dialed down a little, and I have been...

4600 shorty. After asking the wise people here, I decided there was no reason to run lower capacity batteries because you get more voltage drop during the heat. FWIW that weight was just after...

I have a 3 wire RC4. Was brand new in October, but a local track isn’t compatible so I got a 2 wire and this one is just sitting. Full length wires and a second mount if you want it. $70 shipped.

I wouldn’t call it “trouble”, but my FL came in at 1494 before adding any weight. That’s the name of the game though: get the car super light and add weight exactly where you want to make it...

I run at Camarillo and am happy with my 6.1FL with its slipper eliminator (it’s just 17.5 after all), but I did swap for a layback trans and brass C block to get the weight further back.

I think I tossed the bad servo with the ball stud still attached. Of course, Associated has already discontinued the 3981 part. Anybody know a currently available part that will work?
