Welcome and check out the Members rigs for ideas on what we do, most of us are scalers, but there are many cralwers here too. There'll be comp coming up soon that i'll be running so it would be good for you to come along and see how we roll!

a comp? Great!!

yeah ive been checkin out so much stuff rigs and vids here and trolling youtube

love my crawler, but ive always been interested in scale stuff.. but never had the patiance.. or knew anyone else into this stuff, finding this site was just me stumbling around accident.

i may buy another crawler later but this scale stuff is pretty cool.
prolly just as much fun building as useing..

and ive never used lipo..
when i gave rc away lipo was just a new thing so never tried it.

so im youtubing that atm

where is comp thread mate?
