Car is mostly together. Shocks ended up being about 62mm end to end. I got to thinking about tires and had a terrible idea. I’ve got all these RC4WD trail truck tires sized at 1.55, so they’d glue up...

42332 for the black blank ones. 54728 for the while 4 hole ones. That’s all I’ve found so far. I’ll probably order the blanks.

Itís hasnít been very long since I built a mini, but Iím forgetting stuff already. Do the big bore shocks actually use different pistons? All the other stuff is the same, I know that much. Does...

Go for more grip at the rear, to compensate for the forward weight bias. This is where it gets weird. A sway bar on the rear and maybe stiffer springs to maintain geometry on those squishy tires. It...

Love M-01s. So simple.

Interesting note for today. It’s the first time I’ve taken my M-07 off the shelf since November 2017. Setting it up with a 3300kv motor and 24t pinion. Should be a handful....

Nope. I’ve got a few. I double check with a multimeter as well. I’mi gonna just accept that this is the cost of playing with toy cars. On a happier note, I’ve got some packs that are approaching 10...

It happed to my last two Reedys and an older R1. Getting sick of paying rent on these things, instead of owning good product.

One of my 4600kv shorty packs puffed up on me. It’s not the super high performance version. It’s always been stored at 7.6v, in a nice, cool room. I run it in my Slash 2wd, with an R1 13.5, with...

We had an open rule in the past. The track and building got damaged. Running a KV limit will help to eliminate/control motor wars. Most will end up running something sensorless and 4 pole.

Couldnt have said it better myself, except if youíre shimming the diff, you use very little AW grease. Just enough to keep the washers slimy.
