    Maybe me. My wife is having a little party Saturday afternoon and I need to get out of the house. I have an old Canon 20d and a decent telephoto lens for nice pics, but no video.

    Hopefully the...

    Yeah, I plan to reuse the ones that didn't puff in storage. My charger put about 2500 mah into them. Pretty sure they were only about half full when I last used them, though.

    I plan to buy 4...

    Batteries these days

    It's been a while since I've posted here. Bought a house a couple years ago and have been traveling for work so my ERBE has been sitting in the basement for a while. I'm charging up a couple of my...

    A 50d is nice (I'd like one) but even an old DSLR will get the job done with a good lens in front of it. My 20d is still chugging along and my 70-300 IS hasn't let me down either. :)

    You can also "cheat" and use direct flash, even on a sunny day. This helps sharpen everything up by freezing body, but it lets the truck still convey motion. Here's a panning pic done of my...

    Display of power (pic)

    About a year ago I uploaded an almost great pic of my truck's display of power. Though I was shooting in burst mode, the little bugger is so fast that the previous pic with correct framing was out...

    I did strip my planetary gears once, but I'd puttied the diff and was being a jack-***, so I suppose I had it...

    I have a pair of Duratrax lexan curved shears. They get the job done, but my hands are always sore from the work afterwards. They're all I've ever used so I have no idea if there is a better set of...

    It's close, but no cigar. You'd want a perfect fit anyway, not something that's almost the same.

    The Castle bullets' interface is almost dead on at 6.5mm, give or take a few hundreths. The...

    Also consider the "sweet spot" for a motor's efficiency. IIRC it's around 35000 rpm or so for the Castle Neu. It's a good motor and will run well at 6s too, but you'll be turning close to 50000...

    I keep many of my stock items as backup for hopups. It's also nice to put the truck back to stock and sell the hopups separately. You'll save more money that way.

    Most of the items you're...

    I had no idea there were so many 48p fanatics. People upgrade parts all the time to those that are stronger, even if they've never broken a stock part. 32p gears are stronger and IMO, have a mesh...

    Some people have had good luck with the cheap 9XL. I did not. It grenaded in 2 runs despite (or due to?) the RCM heatsink clamp. Temperatures were nearing 400F at the time of death. It was...

    LOL, no offense, but that was not the case for me.

    I'm still fiddling with it trying to get the second cell up to snuff. I recently charged it at .5a on nimh mode to get the cell up above 3.0v so...

    I used the paper method for a while, but I've gone to setting it by feel. I push the pinion into the spur as far as it will go and then back it off the smallest amount I can before tightening down...

    To show the smoothness you could easily do a video in your living room showing the different ESCs crawling around the carpet. Personally I'm satisfied with the slow speed mobility of the MMM, but if...

    I snapped a rod end off one of my Traxxas aluminum pushrods, but the Tubes have been fine. Order a full set of pushrods and toe links, then use the steel parts as backup (which is what I did).

    I'd say the 5000 2s 20C batteries would be fine. They are for me. Any pack that can handle 75A continuous is sufficient for the MMM, according to Patrick at Castle.

    Of course better batteries...
