    Yes, been drag racing since I was 22. I'm 45 now and only stopped because all the tracks are closed. :(
    When we raced a full series, I was track champion twice. I miss it a lot.

    The wheels finally came in and so I just had to mount up a set to see how they look. The top pic is of the 2.8 Gladiators, the bottom is the 2.2 Gladiators stretched over the same style 2.8" Traxxas...

    I run aluminum caster blocks and aluminum bearing carriers (front and back) on all three of our Rusty's with zero issues. What do you think is going to go wrong with both being aluminum? I also run...

    Bottoming out is not an issue. Don't think of this like a 3500 pound 1:1 car. It's a 3 pound rc. Let it go.

    If you use too stiff of a spring or too many spacers the suspension cannot do an...

    I've had really good luck with boiling. Boil the water, drop in for 30 minutes, flip, another 30, then remove. The only real drawback it that is clouds the wheel chrome, but this is an rc car, not...

    I'm thinking it's time to find a trans shop with a dyno; they will hook up gauges to all the pressure ports on the trans and then run the vehicle. That will tell you right then and there what...

    Not the best pic, random blinking light sets make it look like bare spots, not to mention the camera has a hard time trying to focus.

    Some will say you need all the fancy tools for everything. Make it easy on yourself and your wallet. Use one of these $5 angle finders for camber settings. You can get one at any hardware store,...
  13. Out of town for the holidays and taking the rc's with you?

    Just as the title says, just curious if anyone is planning on going out of town for the holidays and if you plan on taking any of your rc equipment along.

    I would give GM a call about the converter first. If you want to compare, it would probably be best to call TCI directly and get a part number instead of relying on a third party like Jegs or Summit...

    I don't have any glueing problems, and the 'square profile' as you put it lends to full contact of the tread area to the surface.

    I don't see why you guys go to all the trouble of cutting tires or shaving rims. The 2.2 Gladiators will glue up to the 2.8 Traxxas wheels just fine.
