Crappy pic, and if you could see the car with more detail you would definately see that it has seen better days. Still, with all the mods and titanium bits in it, it flies

GV 1/10 scale chassis with OS 0.12 engine and EVO Lancer shell. I'll post some pics when I've finished rebuilding it.

Goes fast but handles pretty poorly. I'm looking at getting a new chassis and hopefully keeping the engine since I'm quite happy with it.

I'm open to suggestions.

Got my car today peeps, Went through two tanks of fuel allready, heading back out this arvo... Fucking Awesome fun it is

Its A GV Models 1/10th V8 Supercar with An OS 12CV X Pullstart Engine in it

I haven't crashed it today yet.. which is good

I got to open her right up a few times

Only problem is Im out of 5% fuel, which the motor is tuned for, Ive got a whole bottle of 15% here.. ill just have to re-tune

Only other problems where It has no brakes, the dude broke the brake disk type thingo... makes it a little harder for a learner

And the arial cover thingo (hard plastic thing) is stuffedd.. I gotta head on down to Toyworld on Monday and get a new Brake Kit and a new Aerial

No Piccys yet, when my digi cam gets back from brizzy they'll be straight up... (prolly wed next week, hopefully)

Cheers all, If ya don't see me around much anymore, Its cause im out having fon with my RC car...

I got a pretty cool electric 4wd buggy type car. I could post pics, but that would mean getting my camera and getting the thing out to take pics
I don't really use it much any more because the battery would die so fast and take so long to recharge. Spending more money on a battery is a waste of money. Can it be converted to gas easily? Gas sound like much more fun and no more recharging/low power and having to run out and get the thing.

I have an original Associated RC-10 with the gold aluminum tub chassis. It has a HiTec ESC, and a Tamiya Dynatech motor. Its not pretty but it still goes well and gives good competition to some of the Losi's and newer RC-10s at the local track. But I'm always behind the eightball compared to new lighter cars.
