They look great!
Thnx ,I bought this used to see what all the craze was about on them ,believe me ,I got more of a thrill
making the parts & fixing it better ,an it sits on a shelf , I only ran it a few times ,it did raise
the hair on my neck on 3's though!

I only gave $200 for it ,but will never give full price on one ,the money should have been spent on
some hop-ups for my Baja!....:cool:

I totally understand the "I got the more thrill out of making the parts & fixing it better" thing, I made a few prices for my Baja "nothing as nice as those but I'm still refining and will post when fully finished on my build thread) and boy is it fun as hell! Plus the satisfaction of looking at the peice when finished, and thinking "man, I made that and look how good it looks and works!".

I been on RC forums ,oh gosh ,I think since 2004 ,an met a lot of good folks ,just a few years back ,I got upset on one
forum when a gear head was running down some people that I knew on another forum!

I don't instigate or participate in arguments ,but this dude ,I got to admit ,he knew his stuff on engines ,but he doesn't
realize that there is other symptoms that can cause issues with them ,when ever someone would suggest something ,
he would railroad them ,an then he started naming names......That wasnt cool ,especially when you know the people
& forums!

But any way ,I enjoy the hobby as it is ,I don't need a $ 10.000 dollar piece for that ,an I do like to try to make my
own parts if I can ,I had done other mods & builds ,some of them ,I lost a lot of pics quite a few years ago when
the PC viruses were bad......UGH

That Baja actually has some of my first fab on the rear shock tower ,one of the plastic towers had snapped ,so
I made 2 little bone shape support like gossets for the shocks ,I do have a rear store bought rear shock brace
that I haven't installed yet ,not sure ,if I am going to use it ,but I prefer to make my own stuff ,I have to pull it
out of the shed.
Sense I signed up here to a more large scale enviroment ,I will be more apt to do more on it ,as my heart
was always on smaller nitro's!....:cool:

Yeah, this was my first forum that I've actually been serious about, I'm on rctalk (as you've seen) and Msuk as well. Not active on msuk, not for any particular reason. I year ago I joined a different forum (not RC ralated but scooter related because my 70cc uses a scooter cyl so I wanted help choosing which one) for my engine build for some advice, and man, there was some helpful people but they didnt Reply often, but there was this one dude, when ever I posted a thread he was there, which is sort of good but here's the catch, this guy was such a ass!, at that time I didn't know too much about engines as I was just getting started with this build and I stated that, so he didn't like whenever you asked a question about his response, acting like everything he knew was common knowledge (which it wasn't) and he's a know it all. And he was totally rude. So I ditched that place. But this place is nothing like that, all nice people, well except one but that guy left awhile ago after alittle flamming a couple other members😂😂😂

I do mechanic work on small engines ,more like garden stuff ,w-wackers ,blowers ,saws an lawn mowers ,you would
be surprised on what was wrong with them the reason why they wouldn't run!

I don't have a clue about specifics ,like with racing high performance parts an special bore sizes like that ,but ,I can
trouble shoot an tell you why it don't go ,an 90% of the time I can make it run!

I use to have my own gardening service ,all of my tools are over 20 years old ,an they still kick a$$ ,I salvaged
them from a junk pile years ago an built them!

LOL....I was going to ask you if you planned on riding your RC on your thread!....LOL

I deffo need a air compressor, which one do you use ?

I am not sure ,it is locked up in the shed ,haven't used it in a year ,but it is a small 4 or 5 gal. tank with
a 1 hp motor on it ,its small home compressor ,which is good enough to clean filters & stuff ,I used
it to paint my p-up I think ,but did have to purchase a regulator & filter for it!
