    A buddy and I did that years ago with fishing companies. He was a scout leader, and wanted to see if he could get free stuff to give away as prizes. I just wanted stickers, and any duplicates I got,...

    Here's a work stand I built a few years back. Basically all PVC pipe and connectors. I made sure everything was perfect, took it all apart and painted it. The thin coat of paint is all it takes to...

    Yeah, me too. At one time, I had four nitros, but one by one I sold them all. With lipos and brushless, and my Hitec X4 charger, life is so much easier. I have two drifters and a Slash, but 90% of my...

    It's not a kit; this car was an original electric 4-Tec. When I got it, it was still sporting the original mechanical speed control. So you see, it is just an upgraded car. It currently has a Castle...

    Try Spaz Stix paint. It is great stuff. I've had a lot of luck with Tamiya paint. Very rarely use any spray paint. Got a rack full of Parma paints and my airbrush at the ready.

    With the approaching snowstorm, I got to thinking about adding a set of skis to the front end. I used some pieces of threshold mounting strips, some bent aluminum, and a handful of screws and...

    Glad you see you back on the forums! I haven't really posted anything much lately, either. Just the occasional update to my Slash.

    I never put any preventative measures into protecting a body. I mean, I expect to incur some damage, but never had one crack like that so soon. I think without the Pro-Line mounts, it may have fared...

    Had a great time bashing at the skate park today! A bit of snow and ice in some spots, but for the most part, the ramps were clear. The only problem I ran into was that I stripped one of the holes in...

    I switched them from side to side, and it is a lot better. Tires are right in the center of the wheel wells now. Good call. I forgot about the toe on the Pro-Trac arms. Guess with the combo it was...

    Yeah, I was considering doing that. This one came with 4 degree blocks. It seems like too much.

    I love the STRC pins! I would never go back to using e-clips again. Maybe the Lunsford ones are a bit stronger, but mine have held up quite well to a lot of hard bashing. As for the driveshafts, I...

    Yeah, that is the one thing I could not stand about the Slash. I went to a Pro-Trac setup to avoid it altogether. Now I just use whatever wheels/tires and the same hexes all around. I like being able...

    If you run loose springs in the front and some really stiff ones in the rear, it won't settle as much under acceleration. This will cause the rear end to be less grippy. You can also move the rear...
