    i really do like how that handles mate ๐Ÿ‘ i dont know why but everytime i see this car, i keep thinking it breaks very easily but it doesnt.
  4. with me, i tend to put a bigger engine in and put a bigger clutchbell to make it faster than the 21 engine but the 21 engine is not slow though.
  5. if it was from a t rex, it would be enough for few 1.1 cars ๐Ÿ˜„
  6. oh you need to charge it at 0.1a
  7. thats great! another thing that i did too is charge it above 3v each cell then put it back to lipo charge.
  8. have a look on youtube as that helped me out when i had a problem with one of my lipos. i just cant fully remember the details. i think when you put it on nicd charge mode, you dont use the balance lead.
  9. i would say that is bit on the low side. have you tried charging using nicd mode?
  10. i am curious though, what voltage readings are you getting?
  11. i would say better buying batteries if it is your batteries. your charger is quite decent.
  12. Never heard or seen these before. looks heavy duty though.
  13. anyone ever claimed on insurance for cracked windscreen? got back from shopping yesterday and just noticed a crack. i was thinking about making a claim as it doesnt affect my policy. what do you guys think i should do?

      my mot is not due anytime soon. so im good for awhile yet.

      i have now sorted it out with my insurance and a guy will come to my house on the 10th and replacing it.

      fingers crossedย  that the nail varnish has worked for now.

      The insurance side is the easy bit.ย  I have had a couple of the years but you do get quite a lot of stories of people getting nonย  OEM screens of perhaps a lesser quality.ย  Really modern cars can also be a pain if they have multiple cameras/systems etc and bizarrely some even have to go back to a dealership for calibration if you swap the screen!


      My last one the guy was really good but didn't put one of the wipers back quite right which I didn't realise until a few weeks later when I had to use them.


      Obviously your screen need replacing, but I would just check everything over if you have auto lights/wipers or any camera systems to make sure all is ok before they disappear.ย

  16. that car looks good mate ๐Ÿ™‚ reminds me when i had the porsche 959, that handled awesome, took it to a gravel yard.
  17. i would be really happy about the damage considering what could have happened. if it was me, i tend to have a slow reaction so the front end would be destroyed and chassis either bent or snapped.
  18. was it like slow motion going towards the curb? ๐Ÿ˜„ so not crashed the car and became top, i would call that a very good day ๐Ÿ™‚ i wasnt looking at teh spokes of the wheel on the last picture, i was looking at the wheel nut because i thought that was what you did when you hit the curb, glad you got the spokes sorted ๐Ÿ™‚
  19. nice one mate! ๐Ÿ™‚ i just had a quick look at the photos and when i saw a chip on the pavement, i though' thats it, completely trashed the car' but upon reading the comments, i am very surprised it didnt do anything! well done on the quick thinking, if it was me, i would have been somewhat dumbstruck and wont know what to do ๐Ÿ˜„ then crash it ๐Ÿ˜„
  20. just a thought, would the lc racing ones fit?
  21. good luck bud, hope you can sort it. it is a powerful engine though.
  22. years ago, alot of people used to have problems tuning that engine, i cant recall but i am sure i had that engine too and i was getting some trouble tuning that, cant remember if i managed to tune it or sold it as is ๐Ÿ˜„
