Heh, x-mods... I've got a Team Losi Micro-DT. I love it. Although I think I bent the axle or something, I have a weird vibe and I can't get traction now...

Sorry, I haven't gotten picts, yet.

I tried it too. Got a runtime error. Hay dude you know those capatability modes are just useless tabs. It's like they wrote the code for the tabs but forgot to write it for the affect. :lol:

Well Im really not in the mood to go through and revise EVERY line of code. I think that since I made it on Vista it should only work on Vista. I really need to put XP on this thing.

I am in to those x-mod things, they are rc cars that you mod.... The site looks so kiddish but ok....LINKY . Ive got bumble bee and barricade ( I SOOOO want the blue mustang!)

I have the blue Mustang. 4WD kit, stage 1 motor, but faster than you think, because I added another 2 AAA batteries to it, for a total of 7.2 V on rechargables. You could get it to 9 if you used alkalines, but that WILL blow the circuit. I also have a Traxxas Nitro Sport, but thats been put out of commission until I get money to replace a few parts.

I envy you so bad right now. I also like to paint stuff, like spray paint, in other words re-painting rc cars and shit.

I'm currently working on a quarter scale catapult with some friends. It should be big enough to throw a watermelon by the time we finish. We are building the throwing arm and basket tomorrow, so I'll put up pics then

Otherwise, I used to race rc cars, had a brushless stadium truck which i built a brass tube roll cage for and converted into a desert truck. I also have a mini monster which sucked and a micro truck which is awesome fun, mentioned earlier by someone else a Losi micro dt

I ride mountainbikes, cross country, downhill, 4X and dirt jump. I've built my own jump set with upramps a bit under 5 foot high. Again, I'll post pics later when I get a decent one of me clearing them.

Next year I'll be buying a car so that will become my money pit. I'm coming to the USA for a year and plan on buying a camaro, then bring it back to australia with me.

When I built mine, I used a garage door spring. What did you use as the pull back mechanism? I used a high tension crank.

This year for Halloween, I am building several fright props for my front yard. My favorite of these is called Trash Can Trauma (TCT). It is basically a head jumping out of a trash can, attached to a 12" pneumatic cylinder.

A normal looking trash can...

The guts.

12" stroke!

Solenoid valve.

Power switch.


It's not quite done yet, and I am going to add a monster mask on top of the rod.

For power for the catapult we have two springs we bought from a hardware store. Extension springs, pulled by cables attatched to the throwing arm and mounted to the base of the catapult. We need more power, the catapult doesn't throw far enough. So we plan to keep adding springs until we can throw about 100m (bit over 100 yards)

I'm working on a new hauberk with integral coif. In english, that means a shirt with 3/4 length sleeves that goes to my knees with a hood attached.
The rings are 17 gauge galvanized steel with an inner diameter around 4.5mm. When I finish, I am going to dissolve the zinc layer off the rings.

I painted this guitar hero controller for a friend of mine just to practice some painting techniques and such.
I think it turned out pretty well.
Hard to see in the picture but I gave it a sort of textured finish by using some incompatible paints,
it kinda makes the guitar look almost glittery and shine in a cool way.

I'm trying to make a go kart. I've made a model, a few sketches and a computer renderization. I have also made a keyblade from Kingdom hearts and a wrench from Ratchet and clank out of pvc.

I used to race RC cars. It started as a stock electric duratrax evader ST, top speed about 18mph

Since then:

Custom brass roll cage/tube body
Novak 5200KV brushless motor
Team Orion battery pack
Monster Moab All terrain tires
Ace hobbies steering servo
Futaba 3PM remote
Carbide differential and thrust balls
Constant velocity drive shafts
Custom front bumper
Venom speed meter
Front and rear sway bars for racing
Different weight shock oil and heavier springs for improved suspension movement
Changed gearing to allow for increased diamter of moab tires

Top speed now 50mph and handling way better. Also has increased run times and due to the roll cage is near indestructable.

Trying to obtain photos but my computer is being real dodgy with the internet
