  1. I have been signed out like that before as well. Hmm, maybe something is up with the site then possibly. I mean, I used to get comments fairly frequently and the last one I got was from about a month ago... Give it a try in the Firefox browser and see if it works better and let us know.
  2. Oddly enough, the browser that worked has an ad blocker and the one the one that doesn't had the issue. However, after I switched browsers to the one that worked, the one that didn't started to show comments again. No idea what caused this, but seems to be working fine again now. Thanks folks
  3. Odd, I logged in with a different browser and they are showing there in that browser; very strange. Thanks for the help though.
  4. Yeah, I realize that the main site subscriber login is a separate entity from the forum and I am logged into it successfully as a subscriber and comments were working great for me about a month ago and I even got the emails telling me when people posted new comments and there were quite a few of them; and now there are no new emails anymore or comments showing in my showroom, so I'm not sure what the issue is? Thanks
  5. Hey folks, So I noticed about a month or so back, that all the comments that I had from members on my vehicles in my showroom disappeared and there haven't been any new ones since and the old ones never came back either. Does anyone know what happened? Are comments broken for everyone now or something? Thanks, -Gamester
  6. Some new Super Clod parts if anyone is interested... https://www.ebay.com/itm/124274500908
  7. I just got back from the hardware store and got a 3500PSI epoxy from Loctite called Plastic Bond and some syringes for the application. Its thicker than what I wanted, but I guess I'll try warming it up first. I don't think we have Araldite in the states, but there were a LOT of other epoxys. I'm testing the stuff now to see if it is going to bond like I need it to; it has a 24 hour dry time.
  8. Yea, I'm not sure exactly what he is using. I'm going to go peruse the hardware store tomarrow to see what I can find. Thanks
  9. Yea, toothpick applying isn't going to work for this as it is too messy and unpredictable. It is a tiny area and I can't get anything on the back side of the tiny hex. I need something that will be very strong and pours almost a liquid so it can be applied precisely.
  10. Yea, I've never had much luck with epoxies. I thought about JB weld, but it is going to be too thick and hard to manage for this project. I actually need something that is strong that is a little runny to fill the area when applied and can be applied precisely as this is a small 1/24 scale project I'm working on. What is this fiberglass stuff this guy used at 1:17?... Anyone have experence with that?
  11. Hey guys, I'm doing a custom RC project that requires mounting a hub hex into a wheel without screws. I need to fill the inside area of the wheel around the hex hub with something that will hold very strong yet still have a little flex for the wheel. What do you guys recommend for this? Some kind of glue, expoxy, resin or something? Thanks!
  12. Hey guys, I got a real nice Kyosho LandJump Up on the bay if anyone is after a good one... http://www.ebay.com/itm/120958855513 Thanks, Jason
  13. Nope, but I can only imagine the fun that could had with a 1:1 RC tank
  14. Ah, that makes perfect sense. I always thought that the scale size would mean everything should be the same scale, not just the measurements. Thanks for easing my mind guys
  15. Hey guys, This is something that I have been pondering for a long time and maybe someone here can help me out. Ok, so my dilemma is with calculating scale weight for RCs/Models. For example, let’s say you have a 1:10 scale RC car made of steel, aluminum, and plastic, exactly like the full size vehicle. Let’s say that the full 1:1 version of the car weights 3500lb. So, the 1:10 car should weigh approximately 1:10th of the weight, right? Nope, it isn't even remotley close in reality. No 1:10 RC car would ever weigh 350lb, not even if it were made of lead. However, other measurements seem to hold accurate. For example, I have a very detailed and accurate 1:12 scale model of a 1969 Camaro SS. The wheel base of a 1:1 1969 Camaro SS is 108in, so that divided by 12 means my 1:12 model should have a wheelbase of 9in, and it does. Why is weight scaling so vastly different? Is there some material density or gravity variation that has to be factored in to the division or something? I am certainly no scientist, so I hope someone here with a greater knowledge of physics behavior can help put my mind at ease Thanks, Jason
