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.

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!

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

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.

i couldnt make myself do that if i got payed to do it. but i wont be outside with as much because temps are rising and im not the summer type of person, so i will be indoors alot during the day and probably com out and drive in around the evenings when the temps go down before dark.

Sure do Nitro, and the engines always run perfect when the temps are in the 60s or 70s, i would say.

Just won a Kyosho 777 WC last night off ebay, will put the RB C6BB7T .21 L2G i was going to put in the fusion, in it when it arrives. Parts for the st-rr will be here by saturday for sure and im back on the scene. Been practicing with it at some tracks but havent raced yet, will have to get into driving the buggy as soon as i get the pipe/manifold, 2 servos, reciever, and tires. Heres some pics of some of my stuff.

the engine for...

..the 777 WC

I dont run that body on the st-rr in the pics, thats just for show for now until i get my driving skillz like i want them. I have to get more pics of the one i run it with, but theres a shot of it in the second pic.

And heres the wolf fusion as it is at the moment beside the body i want to put on it.

body fitted on the car, wheel wells seem to line up good, wont know til i get the serpent wheels on it.

they do very well once you put some rpm arms, bumpers, wheel hubs on them. Havent seen none on an rc track but a couple friends of mines have them, one with a OS .21 vzb on it and the other with a modded 18tz. Seen the one with the 18tz bashing on a bmx track with me and it did exceptionally well. nothing broke because he had the rpm stuff on it. The guy with the bb revo needs to rebuild the .21 then he can run it at the bmx track.

Long time no hear!  Come on, you've been back on here over a year now without upsetting someone and getting yourself banned again, where's the old controversial Jastel we all know and love?!  Don't tell me you're mellowing in old-age...?

Well I have checked back in from time to time but yeah your right.... maybe I have mellowed. I took some time off from RC in the hope that upon my return there would be something new and exciting from Schumacher and others.... but alas not much has changed... LST2 is still king in my books and Schumacher are still boring and unimaginative.

I'll do my best to get banned more ok.

Well it might liven things up a bit!  How good is your imagination for new user names though?!

This site is dead alright! No more posts since june 2008.  Well lets try to fry things up. After 5 years of my R12 from retirement. I rebuild my R12 from rusty car to all new shiny again, lets say like new. And well, I'm looking a way to put a centax clutch to my R12. I did manage to buy a SPMRacing Clutch system on my R12. And seems pretty good. Still got to do some more tests though. But don't know if putting a centax clutch would do better.  SPM Clutch it's the same like the Werks Racing clutch for off roads. I found this clutch right here in this site before but cant find it. Anywayss.. any thoughts for a centax clutch?
