Re: New here.... BUt i do play

What are the vehicles that you have???
MOst of us have "hobby level" R/C cars. These are ones that you normally assemble, and have easily replaceable parts.
Of course, most of us started out with Toy Store cars and trucks as well, and some of us still play with and modify these little guys.
I'll offer all the help I can, but I'll need some more info 1st.

Re: New here.... BUt i do play

Devinchi is right. Most all of us started with toy store type cars. Heck i stil have a Radio shack 4x4 that i have modified and still use some. I've seen upgraded shocks on toy store trucks and then you can pull the board out and replace with a good electronic speed control. This helps run time and power. A little more info about what you have and i'm sure we can come up with something that will let you get a little more enjoyment out of your trucks. As far as what we do with ours, i use mine as a tension release most of the time. i rock crawl on mini-rubicons that i have set up, i hill climb with my clod. just last night i acted like it was a desert prerunner and took it over the whoops section at full speed. it is amazing to see the suspension work, just like it would on a real vehicle. Most of all, i enjoy it.!
