While we are on the this subject, the only one that around that has not responded is Oswald and that is very surprising. Have you all noticed that it is always Mr_Utley and Oswald that like jbweld sooo much.......I think that it all started with the dremel master (aka Oswald) dremeled out so much of a chassis that he needed to use jbweld to stiffin it back up. I may have really stirred something up now. Oh well LOL

I believe we can trace the roots of the dremeling back to a "modified falcon". We melted the chassis with a sauldering iron to lower the weight. Ah the days that a falcon places 3rd in in a modified class. There will never be another like it. This was pre-dremmel tool days but it was an indicator of things to come.

Yes, Utley is right. My fascination with "material removal processes" began early in my RC career. I first drilled holes in an old Kyosho Ultima chassis (with a big Black and Decker drill) and from there it just mushroomed. My next project was the infamous "Falcon from Hell", the Tamiya Falcon had a plastic chassis on it that was difficult to drill so late one night as I pondered a way to make this car lighter it hit me...... Just melt out the chassis braces with a hot soldering iron. Worked like a charm, Mr Utley then drove this heinous, flexing, bouncing, over powered machine to a 3rd place A main finish in Mod at the old dirt oval in Huntsville. Unfortunately the chassis broke soon afterwards and we were never able to duplicate the results. It was around this time the Redneck Milling Machine was introduced, the politically correct term is "Dremel", and we all know what's happened from there.

ozwald, why dont you try to explain your first attempt at making traction compound? (you know the lil' cooler full of liquids, glues, etc).

once you explain that, I will work on my theory of electricity and why dead shorting outlets is not the same as dead shorting batteries
