My collection grew a little so I figured I'd post up some pics before I have to sell some stuff... I've never had so many mini cars before, I think i'm getting hooked :D

impressive collection :)

how do you like the atomic micro-t wheel/tire combo?

Thanks arch! I got the atomic micro-t rims/tires mainly for the looks, so it would match my mini-zs :) the tires are much like onroad mini-z tires... they're not "squishy" like the stock micro-t tires. So the truck relies 100% on the suspension for cushioning when landing jumps. It handles much better on carpet/rcp... I'm really hoping to get the micro-ts more popular at the mini-z track :D

Nice collection. Would you happen to have a gallery or closer pictures of the car? I really like the sinister and mr-02's.

Heh I always used to dream of the Serpent Veteq a few years back... but I've always been better with racing electric, my nitro stuff is usually for bashing.

A few months back I had an e-savage and muggy and some other big stuff, but ever since I moved to a smaller place a few months ago, I found my taste for r/c has shrunken to smaller scales :D

Andrew, the only pics I have are in my current gallery: http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=9772

wes, are you a member of our sister site, http://e-savage.com ? Check it out if you still have your E-Sav or just want to bash vicariously through others! :D

Haha thanks mini-z, I used to browse the forums quite a bit, but I sold the e-savage a little while back... :D

Not many people know the feeling of driving r/c bikes... It's too bad for them :D Do you have a TT or NF?

1/8th electric Kyosho Leaning Rider. :cool: They're a ton of fun to drive; even stock they're awesome!

I've bought a stock 3010 board and converted my spektrum awd back to race in the stock class. Switched chassis on both cars so they match a little :D

And a shot with the Sinister which I'm selling ;)

wes,
I have been thinking about getting a hobby-grade chassis like the Sinister. Did you not like the Sinister, or are you selling it for other reasons?

wes

I do like the Sinister, plenty of adjustability and very lightweight... I just need $$$ to keep my other 2 cars raceworthy, and parts are more expensive to ship to canada.

I may get another one next year when I have some spare $$ to start it as a new project.
