ill try out just the tires first...
what about them summit pushrods.. ive read they are 102mm long and the merv's is 72mm long.. do you think i could put some from the summit on my car to make it alot taller?
05-22-2012, 02:32 PM
or do you think i could use my stock toe links to get higher?
05-22-2012, 02:33 PM
Not sure your skid plates might hit limiting the arms from going down any further. I am off to get a spine epidural so I will talk later
05-22-2012, 02:43 PM
ok man.. thanks.. i wish i could find a doctor to give me those.. although i dont have ins and it would kill me on the cost.
05-22-2012, 08:13 PM
It's work related and am still in trouble! Hows the project going?
05-23-2012, 09:20 AM
well so far i am at a stand still.. i dont have any extra parts for right now and i am broke at the moment.. so it'll be a week or before i am running again..
05-23-2012, 09:21 AM
What are you planning to do monster truck?
05-23-2012, 09:33 AM
i dont know really not yet any way.. i know i am trying to stick with black and crome. so when i get some cash, i dont know if i may just go ahead and order some new wheels and a body.. body for sure... man mine loooks so bad.. so i am not real sure what i am going to do next.. still thinking.
05-23-2012, 12:24 PM

gotta love that commercial espn nhra racing
05-23-2012, 02:32 PM
That's crazy I never seen anything at all on tv for them.
05-23-2012, 08:21 PM
So I was just playin around today. Temp outside about 70f geared 25/50 with 2s and I wasn't bEin hard on it just a few jumps and speed runs proLlY 5 speed runs then it overheated... What's wit this?
05-23-2012, 09:44 PM
That's crazy single battery? Esc thermal shutdown? On 2's shouldn't be a problem. Maybe time for a better esc
05-23-2012, 09:45 PM
Yea def time I want your set up. Just don't have the cash. Would my Esc really go bad like that
05-23-2012, 09:48 PM
That is the weak spot. Maybe a good fan like muchmore racing ultra high speed fan. Check ebay
05-23-2012, 10:10 PM
That's weird I just ran it again geared 28/50 and nothin but speed runs never over heated. Weird
05-23-2012, 10:14 PM
That's definitely strange. Did you ever get a temp gun?
05-23-2012, 10:29 PM
Still haven't.. How much do they run
05-23-2012, 10:57 PM
05-23-2012, 11:06 PM
05-23-2012, 11:14 PM
Every rc'er should have one!
05-24-2012, 10:35 AM
aight check it out i think you know what i need as far as parts.. and you know what look i am going for..
just to refresh you, i need tires and rims. i'd like summit rockers, new body real bad, 3s lipo, but i also want that set up you got. i got $100 dollars.. should i go with the parts i need, or should i go ahead with the upgraded motor.. im torn.. ha
05-24-2012, 07:59 PM
well power is important! but 100 won't go very far on small parts either!
05-24-2012, 08:49 PM
True $100 doesn't go far at all it ads up quick.. But if I get the system, then I got power for ever..
05-24-2012, 11:36 PM
05-24-2012, 11:39 PM
Will that system handle 4s
05-25-2012, 06:40 AM
If you have a harbor freight around you they had a fairly inexpensive heat gun that has worked great for me.

I've seen u say that many times 50. Don't get me wrong I believe u 100% but man that's insane!!! Almost hard to believe insane! I can't wait... But it'll be a year
05-25-2012, 05:16 PM
That's kind of how I feel with my neck pain. Almost have more fun wrenching on my merv. Hard to get out.
05-25-2012, 05:35 PM
Ha.. Yea if only it was just my back hurtin.. U have no idea how bad this thing ittitates me.. It's so tight.. And uncomfortable
05-25-2012, 06:04 PM
I bet nope shoulder blade, shoulder, neck and migraine type headaches
05-26-2012, 12:22 AM
well cant say i know how you feel excatly but i could relate alot better than many other.. 3 breaks in my neck and 4 i my t spine. and of coure a few screwed up disc to match.. ha..
my po tryied to say to me today he dont see why i cant just deal with the pain with out pills. i said its a little more difficult than that. his response haha.. well i almost broke my toe last year had to wear a cast for 6 weeks and was just fine with alive.. haha..
i said you've got to be kidding me. "nope, and thats prolly the worst part of the body to hurt you have all your weight on it all day.."
i was shocked! i said do you not know how much you use your neck and upper back you cant move a single muscle in your body with out i coming from there first.. and as far as you little toe cast for a few weeks.. ha. try a body cast from the waste up along with the halo that screws into your head for 6 months..
its not even worth comparing.. (i got a bb gun i am let me go kill an elephant)
