Arrow Attn: NEWBIES POST HERE<<<<<<

Without fail, everyday we get tons of newbies posting that they have arrived at our site. While this is great and we welcome you, we don't need a thread for every single person.

If you start a thread like that someone will most likely send you to this thread.

Give us the general info:
Who you are?
What kind of rig you have?
Where you live?

If you have a specific question, be sure to use the search feature, and look around. There is a good chance it's been asked before, if not bring it on!

Hey, I'm a newbie.........................

What up ya'll. I'm way up in the (supposedly) frozen North called Canada. Thanx in part to your killer webpage....and all the associated links off of it..........I've decided to dive headfirst into the R/C Crawler world, and scratch build my first crawler chassis.

I'll likely be asking plenty of questions...........and will of course post pics when done. But for now...............hey, nice to meet ya.

Jason, you forgot to put "Read existing threads or search to see if what you're wondering has been covered, and if you have a question pertaining to that subject, reply to it with some more questions"

We have like two pages of threads here and seeing "What tires should I run" three times on one page makes me laugh

I'm not a n00b but I'll set a good example

My name is Dave... go figure. I have a clod, it may not have driveshafts but its better than your rig I run about 6-8 packs a day feeding my addiction. I am in Suckramento, CA. Moving to Flagstaff, AZ in three weeks.

Hey all, my name is Mark and I am an alcholic with 3 nipples and I like fat chicks, oh and I also love to go on long walks through the park 8O

But yeah....for real I'm Mark from Vancouver Island, BC Canada. I currently own a 2wd emaxx, a 4wd emaxx, a jugg with clod axles, and a 2wd savage project that I am converting to electric. I also have a TXT on the way, should get it next week.
I recently got into the crawling scene and found this website to be very informative so I joined up without delay

Can't wait to learn all I can about converting my maxx into a serious crawler

Later

Top oda mornin to yas,

Name is Ben and come from Melbourne Australia, Currently have an Inferno buggie that has been customised in to a Hummer-crawler. It was called Buggles as a buggie but my mates call it No5 now as it looks like No5 is alive. Personally I like I-Maxx but hey call it what you want.

This has eventuated from looking at all these very informative forums and having a go. I love my 1:1 crawling and well what better way to have a mid life crissis that get more toys.

I have a super cold in the mail and will thank you all in advance for the education you have given me in the world of rc crawlers.

Cheers guys

My name is Zach. My crawler of choice (and only crawler) is my Sassy chassis based Clod. I ditched the top tub, and made my own radio tray. Then I mounted the shocks on the links, and it became a crawler. I drive it where-ever there's good terrain in Central, Oklahoma. I also own a T-Maxx and an Electric Pede. Both have a fairly large list of hop-ups.

I'm not new to RC or on-line forums. In fact I'm a moderator (along with Highmark who's a member here also) over at RC Jims Place.

Hi,
My name is Bob and I'm a rockcrawleraholic...but my crawler by choice has been in the shop for quite some time (Jeep), so out of desparation to feed my needs, I'm turning to rccrawlers. After doing some web searching, I am leaning towards a TXT-1 from Tower hobby.
