    Matchbox cars

    The FFG (Fat Fox Gulf) made this so much easier to fabricate, my painting skills with one or two colors is alright (some day i'll get an air brush, it's just something else to clean) stripes, trick graphics is the stickers (decals) job, own about every flippn' tool known to the RC world, chassis are easy, electrical is just a time warp............................This is Eleanor's head.

    lower bottom right (below fire extinguisher) is two servo brass eyelets fastened through to a tough piece of "L" plastic, the LED leads are soldered to them + & - and a set on the body itself, so when cab is in down position the eyelets make contact and, well, it lights up...........................

    MST FMX 2.0 DATSUN 620

    Never thought i'd be doing a drift model RC but Oh! my! I've been missing................................................................................................... being this is not a build thread and doing this between every other build, this kit, this style, just had to be done. the body of a 620 was long forgotten in my mind until i saw this truck online and being it was a lil' much for a shell, i was still compelled to purchase this lil' Tyke. then after readn', MST kept popping up, so had to start on some ones platform and never did a drift build before. have only the Recv, and ESC to install, the bodies grill and yes lights. no smoke,are left to do Have about a 1/2 dozen wheels for it. DANG! could of had two dozen but i had to say "Enough !" plus some of the wheels will fit other builds, that said I'am not through purchasing wheels just stopping on this particular one for now, they are like shoes or jackets or potato chips just can't have one so here's the chassis......................................

    just googled all to know about J├Ągermeister it would make a great movie, right up the there with The Deer Hunter. always enjoyed the Livery have a few slots of them, never did like the liquid. every one i've ever known couldn't hold it down. some drinks are for taste and enjoy but not to get plastered by, oh forgot about my MAN Shell (race truck).

    Why bevel the teeth?

    this is a spur gear quotation off Amain's product site. that said, the tampered one looks nicer but is it truly more efficient ? looking at a Team Losi pinion gear now looks just like it and several other brands with slightly different cuts and slopes to them. i'll take two they're small Kimbrough spur gears are full width, because a narrow or profiled plastic gear can deform under load, is weaker and less efficient. This can cause drag in the gear train and waste horsepower. The wider a gear is, the more load it can handle. The only time gear engineers narrow gears, is when there is a space limitation. Kimbrough Racing Products gears run quiet because they have the correct tooth shape and don't have to be narrowed. Choose from a variety of tooth count choices to allow you to fine tune the torque and top speed of your model.

    Hard rc bodies

    i always line the flimsy parts with chassis protector and bumbers with Goop, Shoe Goo or TrackStar Body Repair and or RTV Silicone. too bad Tupperware or Rubber maid doesn't get into the RC body world,
