  1. I melted a new set of Monster Beetle with paint stripper. Oops.
  2. I can't offer any more advice that's already been said, but I can say your username is awesome.
  3. Yep, I've had no issues with the gearbox at all. Its very fast!
  4. I run a 7.5T brushless in my blitzer beetle, with lipo. It's my favorite car to run. The gearbox handles brushless fine.

  7. Weakened immune system from cancer and the virus probably pushed him over the edge would be my assumption. People getting cancer treatments are susceptible to getting sick from chemotherapy wrecking havoc on your immunity. When my wife had breast cancer she had to get a shot after each treatment to help boost her immune system. Thankfully 9 years out she’s in good health. Someone getting the virus who already weakened by cancer treatments would be in a dangerous place. It may be just the “common flu” to some people, but to others already struggling with a pre-existing condition it’s deadly.
  8. common flu doesn't kill 100k people in three months with major lockdowns. I know people that have had to say goodbye to their love ones via facetime. We've had nursing homes in our area storing bodies because they've run out of room. Why do you assume the death rate is below what's on the news? What's your source? Is Brazil dealing with propaganda too? Italy? Germany? Japan? Is it a worldwide conspiracy?

  10. Properly glued tires shouldn't do that. Get some good glue and glue them up. After you glue them you shouldn't be able to pull the tire off the bead of the wheel at all.
  11. If your wheels are breaking free of the glue and and spinning on the wheels you'll never be able to wheelie. I use Team Losi tire glue, but honestly pretty much any CA (super glue) should work.
  12. Think of it as supporting the economy! Ha!
  13. A four wheel drive beetle just didn't seem right to me. RWD and rear motor is a lot more fun with a Beetle!
  14. I love my MF-01x. I left the drive shaft out so it's strictly RWD. Fun sliding it around and getting sideways! Untitled by Joe, on Flickr
