I heard that.

Spoke too soon when I said I didnt break nothing yet, yesterday broke a rear suspension brace, bulkhead, and ball cup on a shock end after coming down on my rear left suspension arm from a pretty good height.

How much would my wolfpack car be worth if I sold it as a roller with alum diff mounts, alum upper suspension arms in rear, titanium pivot pins, steel cvds all around, CVEC bb short pipe, enough spare to nearly build another rolling chassis, and some other stuff? I was thinking $400 is the lowest.

If this site is anything to go by, you may be better off aiming at cents instead of dollars....

Also have upgraded my controller to the Nomadio Sensor and that thing is definatly money very well spent. It already saved me from my truck running away due to low batteries at least 6 times... thanks to the built in fail safe and 2.4GHz technology built into it. Also can hook up a temp, speed, and battery voltage sensor to the truck, but too lazy to try and get all that stuff calibrated. I dont see much of a point of the voltage sensor because when the batteries are low on the car, the controller tells me they are low... literally says that!

The topic says "This site is dead"... well i see nothing has changed much!

I completly left the onroad scene for offroad, the way things are going now, doesnt look like I will be doing the onroad thing for a long time to come. How much would my wolfpack car be worth if I sold it as a roller with alum diff mounts, alum upper suspension arms in rear, titanium pivot pins, steel cvds all around, CVEC bb short pipe, enough spare to nearly build another rolling chassis, and some other stuff? I was thinking $400 is the lowest. I want to buy the new kyosho buggy thats coming out around the end of this year, and the fusion is the last thing i have sitting thats not being used. I need to order about $50 worth of bearings and parts and then I can put it back together and ebay it. The st-rr is sooo much fun, i still have yet to break a thing on it and i have been punishing the truck for 3 months now. That RB TM928 is a serious engine, im talking wheelspin at under 1/4th throttle! Ran it in the yard a couple days this week and it tears the grass and everything else up. But i cant run it on the street with the Crimefighters on it now because it would eat those up in a week.

I don't believe that Schumacher marketed the Fusion well enough in my area for it to catch on so in a long way round I think people are losing interest in this car. Too bad, cause I've had fun with mine just tearing around the empty school parking lot!

............ Don't know if people are losing interest in this type of car Joe.  But when this car first came out it was kinda one of a kind now there are soo many copies like the Cen CT-5 , Nitro 4-tec from traxxas and other onroad rtr that people have other brands to choose from besides just Schumacher. But i am sure that the Lipo's and Brushless motor technology will have an effect on the nitro market too, it is alot easier to go faster with electric than nitro.
