but from what ive read, people are still having issues even on 2s. and to say racing it isn't hard on the truck is an understatement. think of how much im on and off the throttle on a race track for 5 minutes and 7 minutes at a time. laying down 12 laps in five minutes and up to 19 in 7... keeping it under control without avc on a track with plenty of jumps to clear and slamming on the brakes all the time isn't hard on a truck like this???? what?

have you watched the videos?

I've watched them and in my opinion you guys look slow and are all over the place. Purely my opinion so take it with a grain of salt.

If you are as good as you say you are they you don't crash much. My race cars barely break, I just do minimal MX and they keep going. They don't get wet, they don't get muddy, any dirt is blown off with an air gun. He'll I barely even check my bearings unless I'm doing a fluid change. Small jumps, smooth landings, no rocks only plastic pipe. Bashing is what destroys toys, not racing.

You don't have to throw around numbers that mean nothing to anyone who doesn't race where you race. I run 22-24 laps in 7 minutes. Does that mean I run faster or harder then the next guy? No, it's a different track, different surface, different length and me and my Tekno would eat up your Rey everyday of the week on any track. Just saying. lol

But it's all good. We are all in this to have fun no matter how we run.

Maybe you should put a video up that explains how you are shimming and help the ones that are having issues?

yeah right. try me. on clay, ya got me, but any other surface.. good freakin luck. I beat tekno's, losi's, and associated trucks. and by no means are we slow. we are turning laps as fast as 1/10 4wd buggies with 6.5 mod motors in them on that track. you got high hopes.

And I beat 1/8 truggy and buggy when they can't drive (kind of like the other drivers in your videos) on a big blown out track. Again, not impressing me.

I must have missed where you explained it. My bad. It's RTR toy truck that people who have never used one before will buy. A lot will have no idea the terminology or part names that you are going to type. Everyone can understand a video. Try stepping back from the "if I don't why do you" attitude or generalizations. As I said, sarcasm is very hard to read so if your trying to be sarcastic you coming across as an ass.

A 5x10 bearing is just too small for the application. Most people look at the the outside as the bearing. How ever the inside and outside is the race that being roller ball sits in in the middle of the bearing are tiny. A 5x13 would be a lot better for the workload they're being put under

Remember, I didn't generalize and I say I beat them. I said when they can't drive, which isn't all that often in 1/8 scale.

I don't have to check anything or prove anything go to you. I know what I said and that's that. Your the one all high and mighty with your "race truck". Lol

Seriously though, I do applaud you for using it. It's not easy to wheel it around the track against some superior trucks.

here is a hint: "unknown"

and im running e-truggy, not the Baja rey. to nose heavy for those huge air outs.

my body on the e truggy looks like a leopard. easy to spot.

if yall think you can race that well yourselves, go to a big race or two and see how well you place. I don't recall any of you pitting with the big guns.

I don't have issues with nosediving, why do you? Once again, racing with the "big guns" still has nothing to do with being an ass. Also, on one of your videos, you did a great job getting put 3 laps down while being 4-5 seconds off the pace....

so you found a link on live rc to actually see numbers?

so say I race with the big guns right? got that part? and I can keep up.. who are you to say im slow? that was my point.

im gonna have to take trumps idea and build a wall here soon if your ignorance persists.

yall should already know the truck is naturally nose heavy. I don't run weight in my fuel cell because I don't need it. im not jumping it like they do at psycho nitro.

Looky there... Assuming that I assumed you're slow... I've never said you were slow, nor have I implied it and if I have, I really don't care. YOU are the one who came into this with the attitude of "no one here is as good as I am". By the way, I don't ever call someone out unless I've got proof.

It also may be beneficial to everyone else if you go ahead and build that wall, I'm fairly certain most of us are tired of you.
