Dear Steve,
I live in Florida so snow is not my problem it is the summer heat overheating my motors.
Have fun in the snow.

Nice truck, but those cheesy flames... its just me, they are used so much as if the rc world is running out of them.


I say the same about winter, most of my projects are on a halt, am tired of having to always be brining stuff inside the house to work on them.

Dear Crankestein,
I believe no one makes 1/5 masks of any type.
All the masks were made from of computer program and a cutting printer.
No air brush used just rattle cans.
It not the image it's the skill.
See pic. Is this more to you're liking. Decals and Rap with Air Bubbles.

Dear Flame artist;

Do appreciate your concern and for taking the time to explain your artistic skills.

Even if the flames were made with q-tips and a toothbrush, and was all made with 24k gold, I just don't dig flames on rc cars, or anything, clothing, stickers, fleece, carpet, whatever... not my cup of tea. For a few years I lived in a southern state where it was every other car/ motorcycle, coffee cup, tattoo, swimsuit, basketball shorts, dining table, wall, you name it, had flames, and since then it is what it is. I even saw a road cyclist with a flame jersey and it was very tempting to run him over... jk, I was like, even that? what tha heck!

The Vekta, that is nice, more Dakkar style theme +1

Dear [email protected],
I though about my first reply to you.
I worded it poorly I made it sound like I was bragging.
I respect everyones taste on themes. I do not like wraps and decals that are available for 5th scale they are problematic, I always painted all my RC's. Nothing looks better then a painted Lexan body.
My main point I was that the industry fails to provide Masks Themes of any type for 5th scale Painters.
Best Regards,

Did your Losi come with a 2 bolt or 4 bolt?...and what color is you TR snapper clutch bell? The one i bought is shiny silver but i couldnt use it. When I tightened it down to the clutch houseing it did NOT spin freely. It was binding really bad. Thought it was my clutch housing causing the problem so i bought the TR clutch housing. NOPE. That didnt fix the issue. Tried shimming the the clutch bell..that didnt work either. I ended up buying another snapper clutch bell from my LHS(raw color) and it worked no problem with both clutch housings...
