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

          Traction Compound   A liquid substance applied to tires to enhance traction.



Main Topic:

 My street outlaw, how much should I tell you, well before it comes from someone else that claims to be the originator.

 I have a Nova, Octane and 55 Chevy to paint but I am leaning towards the 55 as the car I will campaign.

 Let’s talk thought all the parts.

Nose: Servo, linkage, shocks (oil, limiters, springs) tires

Rear: shocks (oil, limiters, springs) sway bar, Tires

Power: Tekin RS Pro black on a Tekin Gen3 4.5 sensored motor. (pro2 chat) Bluetooth connection via my phone.

Battery: MaxAmps 4750 graphene shorty (charge rates, how often do you recharge, storage between racing.)

Rear tires: Clay is not gay!

Trans: diff lube and gears

Wheelie bar: Jakes Performance. Wheelie bar wheels

Chassis tuning: shocks, sway bar, wheelie bar.

Body mounting and now things are getting serious… Screw in buttons and a bumper mounting system from McAlister racing.

Wings and things: well our friends at undercover racing who make sweet rear wings (spoilers) but Tim what about splitters and canards and all that silliness.

I still believe the DB10 is the best platform for a street outlaw car, but the rest of the aftermarket world has not joined the fun and made parts for it like the slash.


Power tune, thank you street in front of my house where I do hits every day.
