lbrc, it's good to hear the front bearings are comming along. I can never resist spending money on the little devils. I'll wait for your jig before I start the pm/begging process. :rolleyes:

I take it the nikko chassis wasn't upgradable at all...

I was rather hoping it was. Nikko put such nice bodies on their 1/32s, why didn't they just go the extra mile? The body probably cost more...

I doubt it's a coincidence. They're probably trying to keep everything ~1/28 and needed a smaller chassis for subcompacts. I guess 'miata' is probably going to be about as cool as cars on that...

hmmm, looks like somebody's really been holding out on us as far as body replacements--they fit very well.

It's a very nice track too, I was meaning to comment on it over at r7r, but my job has...

It may be splitting hairs, but I think the kyosho cars are even a bit farther from 1:43 than epochs are. It'd be somewhat interesting to calculate what the scale is actually going to be on them. I...

from the videos, they looked much faster than expected. almost as fast as the shotgun/turbo setup :eek: maybe it was my imagination, or the camera angle, but that looked like a pretty long table it...

ground clearance woes

What are you guys running in front for ground clearance? I generally like the higher clearance, with the spacers above the wheel so I don't drag on the ground. My 86 NEEDS to have the spacer above...

since nobody else seems to know if they're popular in japan, I'm going to say that they're not. I think they're viewed as a decent toy put out by an okay model company. Just like we think of the...

is it just me or is there *zero* information about these on the epoch or mtech websites anymore? That's very odd for a car that's still in production. Especially since a lot of the out of...

I see your point. why bother modifying if kyosho's just going to come out with a drop-in x-speed motor that mops the floor with me whenever a corner comes up?

I do have my doubts about kyosho and...

I know you were mentioning it earlier, but I wanted to avoid filling that topic.

I've also got most of LBRC's mods, but I can actually do with more speed than the shotgun's got. 130 would...

how about 130.

130 conversion. we've all looked and thought about it. There should be enough room under the body.

Custom pan chassis. motor mounted front to back offcenter (vertical). I don't think there's...

there's a battery bucket inside the main chassis and the pins on the rear plate are held down by it. Complete disassembly probably isn't necessary, but you will have to at least loosen the chassis...

general PCB questions

is there a location I can go where there is a hand-holding walkthrough of exactly how a 27mhz receiver works? Or how to build one.

Every so often I get the idea of building my own compact rx/esc...

I've found that the fibers in low pile carpet are too small to interfere in any major way. They do tend to coat the black chassis, but don't get pulled into the wheels or diff. Use the vaccuum if...
