Try typing RC news into google.... very disappointing

  • RC Word Of the Week (brought to you by RC Driver)

Glitch

Otherwise known as radio interference, a glitch refers to a momentary lapse in signal transmission. There are external sources that cause glitches, (like overhead power lines,) but consistent glitching is most likely the result of something in the vehicle itself, such as metal-to-metal rubbing as you might find with control linkages.

 

Main Topic:

 

Pre race drama as always.

Crash the arrow car into the curb under braking smashing the following

Arm, CVA, All adjustable links, Steering block

USPS you suck and then you don't... but no you suck.

 

Get it all together

Wheelie bar wheels

 

What to race, switch everything only to switch it back

  • RC Word Of the Week (brought to you by RC Driver)

Break-In

A new nitro engine has to go through a break-in procedure to mate the engine’s piston to the cylinder sleeve. This provides a longer life expectancy between rebuilds. Recommended procedures will vary by manufacturer and engine. Generally, an engine will need to be run rich and at no more than half throttle for the first 2-3 tanks of fuel. The entire procedure can consist of anywhere from 3-5 tanks of fuel, depending on the individual engine’s instructions.

 

And lets not forget tires and foams…

 

Main Topic:

 

Arrow car: It’s becoming the stare car.

 

Thick chassis (4mm) some how my bodies don’t fit anymore… more fab work.

 

Body is stiffer now, so many goods from the thick chassis.

 

Weight: 60oz (3.75) to 68oz (4.25) over all gain (1/2 lbs)

 

Longer wheelie bar, this car is SOLID now. Need to build a jig to adjust it.

 

Shock package (75mm front, 85mm rear)

 

Shark body (Dodge Plum Crazy)

 

No limit graphics wrap

 

Undercover wings (GNX and others….)

 

Adjustable rear arms and 4° of toe

 

Machined hinge blocks are awesome

 

Raw speed tires (Clay, Long wear soft, Soft and super soft) Everyone is jumping on the we make smooth tires bandwagon.

 

RX8 in RSpro out

 

Tekin Eliminator motor

 

Throttle profile

 

 

 

Featured Item of the week

TSR Speed Shop RC podcast “Live Love Laugh, or Don’t”

TSR podcast Episode

Live Love Laugh or don’t”

Hosts: Tim Smith and Matt Howsen

 

  • Show introduction and welcome.

 

 

Tim Notes:

The world is going a bit mad and I am not sure I want to talk about it…..

I will say the nastiness of the world is effecting my outlook..

 

I couldn’t make the no prep cash days race (work) but the real issue is I really didn’t care and that made me pretty sad and forced me to evaluate what the heck I am doing here anymore.

Blackballed? It sure seems like it… other podcasts getting promotion, not being included in the conversations…. Maybe its time.

Then I slipped up and posted about it…. Weak move

 

USPS is dumb and can’t ever seem to get my packages to me.

 

Installed a new kitchen floor that was a fun learning curve for Timmy
