RC car

bought myself a (reasonably) cheap RC car to thrash round on the beach when i go to the caravan, obviously i had to put a GoPro mount on it. Everything's on charge & hope to give it a try on the local field tomorrow

you mean the exposed copper slider bar type?

hop up the Max to Aluminum, and i am in , nothing like a well built car by hand. not slapped together . building from parts you learn the ins and outs? P Fandango what car is that, you got? Before any run are you going to protect your electronics, they may say the are WP, and may not.

A Balloon over certain parts, Saran (SP) wrap, over the the inner hual to keep sand out are some old tips.

FISH

Chevron treads will be alright , enjoy

its a Tamiya Mad Bull, only took a few hours to build. But as you say should be easy to repair when I break it. Might look into the Nanospray to waterproof it

i actually put metal ball bearings in, they were only 5 a set so soon replace them once the sand gets in. I don't think the controllers meant to do that, but see what the seller says
