glad to have you here and look forward to seeing you at the gtg's! i'd like to get a first hand look at that whoa nelly and well, i'm a sucker for the cr5. (would you be able to make it this sat? i know it's short notice but it's just now being planned)

you can still break the alloy 1st servo gear... try using the plastic tie bars as they will typically snap before the servo gears. also, never run the chassis without the body ;)

Welcome aboard! Yes the C5R is a great body and it sound like you have quite a setup. I too was bitten by the C5R bug. I don't think I will paint the new one though.
Can't wait to run this Saturday! News to me too :D

nice cars, the one on the right was the color i was looking for! whats the paint kind/shade?

another edit;
im also running roll shocks, i was told it greatly improves cornering abilitys and rear end performance!! and also i will be running a 35 turn with neos ( wound by me ) on the "outside drags" :D but uh i think thats about it...

I think black cherry pearl. Model master paint. Not a bad finish but it's too soft for racing. You can see the chips already. I am gonna touch it up with black. The outside drags are fun. I just recently made some chassis changes and body changes so I will have one just for outside.

I think we took one, but of the CLK. My 7yr old son was smokin us with his Diablo and I was running a turbo car with high gearing. I don't know but I think I mutated his FET's????? I put an iwaver xspeed pro in his car and it ran very slow and smelled burnt up. I quickly pulled it and replaced it with a K x-speed and it was very fast! That night after my son was done I gave it a run. Very fast with good grip coming from 8g slicks. It was just enough power to take the tires and suspension to the limits. I will post more in the D.C. GTG thread. :D

Ahh, how was that? Im currently dealing with some legal issues.. Someone hacked my aim account and sent someone stolen money, then instructed them to send it to another contact on my list then send it to me. Someone is trying to sue me because of this, aint that BS? But its all good, if i pay it back.. But one problem.... My paypal is on lock down due to foreign access so i cant send, recive or deposit any money :mad:
