My firste Scale Tour

Last Sunday I met up with some forum-buddies of mine to drive some Scale truck. This was my first real trip since I bought the beast in November. We went to Ekebergåsen where we found some really good, but maybe a tad difficult spots.


Roads never look steep on pictures, but it was. I sadly had to lift my car over this section as it was to steep and slippery.

Tamiya F104W


Got my new used Tamiya F104W yesterday. The car is a formual 1 car and I’m really looking forward to try it out. Just need to get my and on a new ESC, a 21,5T motor, and a body. The car dosen’t look that used, with nice wheels and no damage. Only some dust from the carpet it’s been driven on before. Nothing a dust blower can clean.
Sadly it’s a bit to wide to compete with, but I got it for a really good price, plus I know there are conversion kits to narrow it.

I also sold my Team Shepherd last week. I knew that I wouldn’t have the time, or money to get it up and running. It is enough with one 1/8 car.

Arduino and Bluetooth

Got some Arduino and Bluetooth parts in the mail. These are for a Arduino RC project I’m working on. The one mentioned earlier. I’m kinda tired now, so don’t feel to write a long blog.

So to keep it short, it is about controlling light and winch in my RC scaler with my phone using Bluetooth. As you’ve seen in the earlier videos it is working really well. I’ve also been in contact with other RC enthusiast which want to buy my solution. So I’ve ordered ten Arduinos and ten Bluetooth modules. wpid-IMG_20140131_161921.jpg




Suzuki Swift

Tam tam tam da! Got my own promo car! GunnarB over at has as side project of custom painting RC bodies. So I decided to throw some money his way and asked him to make one for me. It is based of the Swift’s you can rent from Rent4Ring in Germany, which I’ve driven my self (it’s a lot of fun!). So here it is. There are more photos after the jump, and they are all taken by Gunnar!

What do you think? I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Now I just need to be a better driver so I don’t wreck it!

More down force!

I was at RCLand yesterday testing out my new sweep tires for the m-chassis. It worked really well,  especial after only using grip liquid on only the back wheel. To try to get even more down force in the back, I decided to try out a wing for the car. Or at least, that what I said. It was mostly for show, so I went for the biggest wing they had!

What do you think?

Thinking of painting it red too. Two more after the jump. Continue reading More down force!
