  1. Thanks for the help managed to file down a No. 7 spanner to fit the nut for those that are interested now that i've leaned the fuel out leak of unspent fuel stopped however hard to tell if gas coming out the join guess if there is a performance drop it be minimal. Can someone tell me what type of glow plug is best for the Kyosho GX-12 engine i took the one in now out but no number on the plug so i put pulg back if because it fine for now but i will need to replace sometime so rather trial and error i get the information now i've read somewhere OS A3 works and that A3 is now No 6 and is a Hot plug is this a wise choice ? using 16% fuel ATM. any tips on fuel and plug be great
  2. Hello need some help i'm new to Nitro and Kyosho. rather get Tamiya myself, but i salvaged this car from friend of a friend. after finding out what model it was, i was able to order missing parts and rebuild the front and the rear sections of the car. now came the fun bit of starting it however i had problems getting it too start. so i checked the glow plug found out that looks almost new and is glowing nicely. i found the Engine manual (GX-12) and found out i had to re-adjust all the servo and the throttle valve and idle pin bit now i got that setup perfectly almost needs slight adjustments everytime i start it however i thinking thats got something to do with my next problem which i need help with. when car is sitting still not running for awhile it started leaking unspent fuel from the exhaust system (in picture) from that i know its running too Rich however i have problem on Needle valve and i dont have a spanner/wrench to fix the problem or a part number for the spanner/wrench so can order one. this is nut i need spanner for any help with part number for spanner This is where unspent fuel is leaking from. once i lean it out the leaking of fuel would stop but would a leak in gas from this location dampen performance ?
  3. 58398 is Ferrari FXX TA-05 1/10 Rc Kit according to a quick websearch no information for 58400 unused model number seems to be link to a future release from what i've been reading another kit.
  4. i understand they have to try and sell yet too me in certain stores in my area its not the fact they try to sell you something it the fact they try and force sell you something. and again they dont need to make out there experts in the model alot of them explain the model perfectly however they take it that step further and make out the model is something you know its not. in all fairness they over step the mark in the 2 areas i've highlighted. but this is only in the ones that dont specialize. i used to go to 2 models stores when i was younger they have closed now. both was run by elderly gentleman but the one store specialized in plastic models (Airfix,Revell etc) the other store was RC only (Planes,Helis,Cars,Boats) these 2 stores was a wonder to go to because they both didn't fabricate information to sell you something they knew what they was selling and sold it they didnt need to twist the truth on the models. where as the stores today just dont seem to employ the people that take interest in what store is selling or are only interested in a specific thing the store is selling and it shows. i think a perfect store will train its staff to a degree of understanding for what that store sells. and also train them not to go beyond the truth when it comes to selling something. i'm happy with the LMS in my area thou i would be happier if they would stick to the truth more often about the things they sell. i'm not thinknig of my self here i'm thinking of beginners who could be stung by poor information or over fabricated information
  5. there are a few models shop in my general area however alot of them are expensive. which ok compared to the likes of ebay its expected but some are generally ok. but alot of the time some of the stores workforce look to push a sale rather then give the advice your looking for. service is generally good to a point but when they have talked themself out of a sale for 1 item they tend to become rash and try to sell you anything. i think the workforce in most models shops are not RC model collectors but merely model collectors and maybe not even that in some cases. and i think that is the let down with stores. that dont specialize in a give area of modelling but look at a whole aspect. they have limited knowledge is certain areas of what there dealing and it clearly shows. obviously this is just my opinion and i think the reason for this opinion is the fact i more the type of person that likes people to step up and say i dont know rather then people pretending they do. and pretending they do is the type of feeling i get when speaking to model shop workers hey Topforcein if youre still reading this thread what model shop are you talking about Penn Models i'm guessing ?
  6. could always apply mouse over pictures with the watermark. would mean when viewing pictures on TC not to put your mouse over the image. basicly thou if you did and tried to save picture you would get the watermarked version. would mean if someone wanted a picture they would have to PM the owner for it. i dont know about internet codes and webpage development but pretty sure this is possible but hten again if it is then i guess there is away around it too
  7. i send e-mails to the sellers after 2 weeks to find out what was going on. more expensive items are generally sent by recorded mail so the seller can actually chase up the parcels whereabout and inform you or they can provide you the information to chase them up yourself. all my items i ordered around the time of the postal strikes arrive around 2 weeks after the seller had dispatched them. good sellers generally will go out there way for a customer. my advise is send sellers mail asking if items was sent by recorded mail and if so could they find out the items situation or send you the information to chase up the items yourself. no harm could be done and if it wasnt sent by recorded mail your in no worse a situation then before you sent the e-mail so really you got nothing to lose
  8. Still looking for Nitro car to add to my collection. would like some advice on a couple models i've took a fancy too and hope your experiences can help me choose the correct one or make me look elsewhere. i'm inexperienced with Nitro never owned one. and only have a budget of around 200,$400 US,also i dont really trust my LHS they tend to focus more on how much money they can make rather then to help find a deal that suits you the 2 models i've looked at so far are RTR form Modelsports website but i dont mind looking at AAR's longs price to get them RTR doesnt go over my budget Ansmann Virus http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFunction=...mp;ItemID=28293 Tamiya Mad Spirit http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFunction=...mp;ItemID=26871 if anyone can tell me anything about the option i provide or give me some options to look at i'd appreciate it very much

  10. least you havent started using her jewelry boxes for parts storage boxes yet
  11. Thanks all. was thinking of going for one of the HPI RS4 models for beginners if my budget will allow me, thou i'm also looking to add another electric to my collection so at moment i just want to gain knowledge on the whole Petrol/Nitro scene beings my budget can only go so far
  12. thinking off adding a Nitro or Petrol RC to my collection thou i havent a clue about them,i'm wondering if there is any books i can buy that will tell me the ins and outs of looking after a Nitro or Petrol RC Thanks
  13. think to setup a merchant who may not have had the laws highlighted to him prior to the setup is wrong and shouldnt stand. however if the laws have been highlighted to him then he should face whatever the punishment is for breaking the laws. cracking down on this is only a good thing in terms of how our neighbourhoods look. however if your gunna crack down on something people shouldnt be doing i think you also need to implament something they could be doing legally in its place otherwise they will just turn too something else that could be illegal. in this sort of case i'd have art gallerys in ever town but only showing local arts have something in place where spray artist can improve there skills and even get there work publicly shown legally on canvas rather then illegally on someones wall. thou the way they approach the crack down is not targetting the entire spectrum alot of the artist are over the legal age to buy spraypaint so this is not going to effect them in anyway shape or form instead you need to target this age area with harsher punishments to crack down on the entire age spectrum of those involved. interested topic area of concern great read
