Racer Gallery - post your Racing Rigs here.

Post by BloodClod » Tue Nov 29, 2005 8:00 am

This thread is specifically to collect pics and info on your racing rigs.

Please note:

1) Racing Trucks only - can be clods, txts, etc. but it must be a racing MT.

2) Post as many pics as you want but do try to get good ones, especially of interesting setups or parts you have to enhance the truck's handling.

3) Accompanying each truck should be a description. Here's what I'd like to see:
  • Truck base: Clod/TXT/Maxx/Etc...
    Chassis: Thundertech/Extreme/Custom/Etc...
    Shocks: (at least info on length and type... if you're willing to share give more info on oil weights, springs, etc.)
    Motors: (make, winds, etc.)
    Pinions: (for gearing info)
    Tires: (type, make, foams/no foams, vented/non-vented, etc.)
    Shell: (type, make, etc.)
    Electronics: (ESC, radio, etc...)
    Other mods: steering, etc.
    Suitable for: (info on the kind of track you're truck is setup to run on)
4) Please maintain your pictures online. Looking at a list of racing "X" images isn't cool. Mods will delete posts with broken links.

5) No comments please. If you like a truck and want more info create another thread on it and ask away.

Intention of this thread is to keep a collection of racing clods and to share info with anyone looking to build a speed rig.

Now who'll be first? :)

Why spend money to have an r/c truck when you could have a real one? HA yea right, r/c trucks are a blast and my r/c truck can outrun your "REAL" truck anyway.
