    RC Sparks....From the P4de

    I was jumping off some steps in the dark last night and due to some mods to get the wheelie bar mounted after the original screws pulling through the bottom of the rear bulk head it bottoms out and hits metal! I was getting some awesome sparks from it...

    Am thinking of adding some metal plating to get even more.

    Bah I only have a lowly Samsung Galaxy S....It has no flash which make it useless in low light. I'll see if I can get some more metal on it and get a better camera.

    After I lost a wheelie bar wheel from going as far as I could over and over I made a metal skid plate to attach to the back of wheelie bar. Used 10/24 screws and big washers to sandwich it on. Made sparks but not that great cause the truck doesn't weigh much. I tried different metals at the shop on the grinder at work and found Mack semi truck camshafts spark the most. Welded a couple chunks onto the flat bar and it makes a spark trail a foot long coming out the back! Sorry no pics

    There is a product that is made for "Lower Rider" cars and trucks that you attach to the frame of the vehicle, and when they drop they suspension, it drags these block on the pavement and makes sparks. I wonder if they could be attached to an RC vehicle? http://store.gaugemagazine.com/drag-...racket.aspx.Ok. maybe not. Too Big and heavy. Nevermind...
