I was thinking of your build, but I wasn't criticizing it. Your build is very cool, but I don't have the patience to make a build like yours. At this point in my hobby, touring cars only really...

If I had a 3D printer, or sufficient CAD skill to design parts to send to Shapeways for printing, then the TT-02 might be more appealing. But then, I could design my own chassis that uses higher-end...

I owned a Twin Hammers briefly a few years ago. It did not live up to my expectations. As a crawler it wasn't as good as a dual-solid-axle chassis, and as a basher it wasn't as good as a...

I'm one of those people who tricks-out his builds before putting very many miles on them, so I think this thread has cured me of any desire to own a TT-02 of any variety. The cost to build it up to...

Wouldn't an extension on the carb inlet fix that problem?

Anyway, the fuel economy shouldn't be affected, because the fuel evaporates easily so the fuel that soaks into the filter just evaporates...

Yeah, my budget allows it. I haven't built a RC in months. Mostly I was intrigued by the appearance of a "RR" version of what is normally a very cheap RC car.

Unswept asphalt with cracks, loose grit, and god-knows-how-much sticky rubber tire dust. My FF-04 got filthy every time I ran it; my tub chassis cars don't.

Because Tamiya offers a bunch of kits that are somewhere between cheap RTRs and all-out track racing cars, which means I can get a nice car that doesn't require special care. (aside from concerns...

There's no reason to resist the TB-04R; it performs well and is a completely drama-free vehicle. It "just works". But I already have one, which makes it somewhat less interesting to build another...

I thought about getting that aluminum brace, but I couldn't convince myself that it would actually provide more stiffness than the carbon-reinforced-plastic brace that I'd installed previously.

I was about 150 miles away from the epicenter of the Mineral, VA earthquake back in 2011. It was a 5.8, which is a huge earthquake considering the thickness and solidity of the bedrock on the East...

Cells connected in-series can't recharge each other; only cells connected in-parallel can.

Having said that, I agree the battery has one damaged cell, which is sagging very badly under load and...

Yeah, I saw that one.

I dunno. While the TT-02RR seems interesting, it sounds like it's still cheap in a few significant and hard-to-fix ways. Maybe I'll just get another TB-04R and build that...

Let's see: His "stars and stripes" lapel pin is missing, he should be wearing a v-neck tank top (aka a "wife-beater") under the coat, and there should be a concealed-carry holster in his pocket.

God I hate country music. I just hate it. The premise of the entire genre is bullshit. Gangsta rap is more realistic.

So the diffs need TRF o-rings and a shim kit? That's not too bad, though it's irritating those parts aren't included.

American country music is surprisingly popular in Europe, I guess because the lifestyle described therein is strange and different to them.
