as I promised to @WickedFog I am documenting here my first ever RC build. It came approximately 2 weeks ago.
I messed up a little bit with painting (bad covering tape, too close with spray paint can etc.. usual beginner issues I suppose :) ).
Here I am putting some pictures of my...

Hi. I am new to the forum. I build an RC car over 30 years ago. I am getting back into the hobby this time with my sons. I dusted off my old Team Associated 1/10 World Car and we built a RC dirt track in our backyard. Now they are hooked and want cars of their own. I need some help to sort...

Hello Fellow Bashers
I picked up an Arrma Voltage in October of 2020 after a long hiatus from the hobby. I was tired of pandemic gardening, especially since I have the most frustrating of thumbs in which my seeds will grow, giving me a false confidence. Then, begin the slow, drawn out process...
This is my first post here. I haven't had an rc car since the t maxx 3.3 came out(15 years ago ?). So its been a while.

I'm looking to build my first SCT. I'm having a rough time finding any sort of template. I would like to build my own chassis out of carbon fiber. Should I just buy an slash lcg chassis and try and copy it? What i would really like to do is have a template I could just put over the top of the...
Hello RCT Nation!
I am in the process of aquiring pieces and parts for my and could use some help. So far, I have the kit, a few different pinion gears (28t, 30t and 32t), a fancy exotech motor mount and battery mount.
As for motor/esc, it seems hobbywing has a decent reputation. Looks like...
Went to the local race track and saw these Pro-Line X-Maxx Trencher 4.3 tires and instantly fell in love. Has anyone found a way to successfully mount these puppies on a 4.6 MGT? I know the Proline use a special modified hex (23mm notched I think). One of the locals also said I could probably...
