I just got a new car and its MS chasis. I bought the HD-pro but it doesnt seem to be as fast as the other cars.
Is it my battery problem or? Help is very much appreciated biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

did  you change the bearings and the gear ?

they didnt have bearing stocks that time sad.gif

yeah... green gear(ms chassis) for your car look fast...bearing for your be really fast...run-in motor for your car faster than "really fast".

it's fun to learn how to build a car... 2 years since day 1 i purchased my 1st MS pro, i am still learning new stuffs every time i build a new car...

Green gear do u mean by high speed gear?? wats a run-in motor?hmm.gif

@conselfa

I need dual rollers and ball bearing rollers...I'm using plastic rollers at the moment and its really slowing me down...
I got the high speed gears abd the bearings for it...I can really feel the difference but the plastic rollers are killing me sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

But the parts i need they dont have sad.gif just waiting for it to restock biggrin.gif

Dam there is still many adults who really never go to school
I think it's really stupid for them to leave rubbish at the track area like they are king where people help them clean their own mess

All these really pisses me off so don't be mad when I step in your car in the track to make it my own rubbish for you to help collect

I am very disappointed with all the new guys now they don't really know how to respect others by thinking they got money to buy they can do anything
*
Yeah, alot of people does that. I remember i throw all my rubbish but if i forgot then im sorry notworthy.gif notworthy.gif notworthy.gif

hi people,

i used to be into this mini 4wd stuff 10 years back or so. Now kinda itchy wanna get back into this stuff. My God how have things changed. All the chasis looked so canggih and stuff. Eye opening..

I still keep all my old cars but I guess they are not exactly applicable anymore nowadays. The latest chassis I have up to date is a type Zero. LOL. And I had stuff from AY, Daisheng as well as Tamiya also. I think those I keep in museum and start a new car all together.

So guys,

What a good car or chasis to begin with?
*
Same here man. I have stopped for a long time and i just started back a week ago. Feel free to join us back. The more the merrier laugh.gif
As for the body its better to get the new one which is MS pro cause they got alot of parts for it biggrin.gif

no worry bro, this 1 will release in Nov, so you save 50 every week, when the stock arrive TU, you can own  1 or 2 EVO maybe...hahahaha....
*
hahaha....AGREE!!! rclxms.gif rclxms.gif rclxms.gif Planning to get HAHA!!! rclxm9.gif

QUOTE(szngszng @ Sep 9 2010, 12:12 AM)
yeah, i agree with choycp, i am not that advance also, thus, i never own 1 set of EVO kit since MS evo debuted 2 years back.

because i am still newbie biggrin.gif

btw, EVO chassis didn't mean it can last forever, every chassis has it's life cycle, after using several time it will bend and run out of shape, if you mind about the performance, you might decide to change the chassis, if you don't mind, you can keep on using. those minor changes of the chassis will cause some gear problem, jumping not straight, miss conductivity...

if you got enough money, you might consider purchase EVO set only for the chassis (i know some ppl do this, hehe), you might also use normal VS box car's chassis for replacement.

have to explain so long so you can understand and not misunderstand my meaning...

Wow....I really have to thank you for providing so much info and being so helpfull man..Just out of curiousity..How long have u played Mini4WD?

QUOTE(LanEVOchris @ Sep 9 2010, 12:55 AM)
