Question for the guys who fabricate. We sell
Music wire in sizes up to 1/4 in Rod. My question is can I use this to make my next tube cage. I'm using a wirefeed mig to weld

1/4 solid rod would result in a heavy ass rig imo.. use 3/16 main rails and 1/8 supports or brake line tube..

I'm wondering if that type of spring steel will weld. We have tons of sizes. Just not sure a spring steel will weld as well as hot roll steel

I'm back in town... Willowbrook actually, right next to Waterfall Glen. I haven't run any of my rigs in years but thinking I'd like to.
Actually, now that I think of it... I left them in Ohio! I'll probably head there in a few weeks and can bring Melons back.
I have micros and minis with me I think.

Oh yeah. Facebook and people changing careers and moving around has left it pretty dead in here. Sad seeing it since I was in here when it was hopping with interest and posts.

Dusted off my C3 bomber yesterday. The 1st comp of the season is this sunday in AZ.

The scale crawling scene is still huge in Arizona, i have just been to busy with life to play with toy trucks (been playing with 1:1 cars, trucks, and guns for the last couple years)

Im going to charge up some batteries and head to the comp this sunday. I still really want to build a C2 rig to complete my RC collection.

Since being relieved of my employment there a few years ago, haven't gone back even though I've been asked to stop by. That said, I have been running with another former employee on Friday nights during the summer last year and have been scratch building a new and RPM laden Bandit for use parking lot combat against a Losi 8ight 3.0 (I think). Tore up my Stampede out there last summer and even my 4-Tec 2.0 to some extent, so I figured a Bandit or Rustler that was loaded up with RPM stuff like that Stampede is would be better, being lower and longer with the ability to move more of the weight forward on the chassis than can be done on the Pede platform then slapped a J Concepts High Speed Bandit body on it for a little Buggy on Buggy Crime


We also did a little crawling out by the Windmill on 25, had out my SCX10 and Telluride for that too, although the Telluride needs a new battery since the one in it is old now.
