  1. Back in the day most everyone i ran with ran Ofna buggies, but that was quite a few years ago, but i'm sure they make some seriously capable buggies still. My take on nitro, is it is smelly, shit just gets everywhere over time, cost of fuel and plugs, and bump boxes or pull starts that can give you issues, after a few seasons of nitro i gave it up for all electric. EDIT: Battery chargers and packs are quick charge, so it is really handy to have many packs to allow them to cool after use and charging
  2. ^^^^^ Nice little collection going there. Had i not got this receiver i was in the market for a mid range turntable, so it will have to wait a tad longer. The cost of new vinyl is pretty damn expensive.
  3. Luxman R-117 It will be getting a full refurbish before too long. All reports are this thing is beast mode for a receiver, and tops many lists as the best receiver of that era.
  4. Over thinking no, getting too much, maybe. The only trick you need to do is buy what you need, and only what you need, anything more is overkill and wasting money you could have spent elsewhere. Pencil and paper drawings will help you get a visual and idea on what all you need, plus it allows you to look back at some of the ideas you had running through your head at any given time.
  5. I just strip enough shielding away to twist the wire and fold it so it is long enough to put inside, then i'll solder the wire as the solder will conform to the hole better without any stray strands of wire.
  6. Zip files?

    Not allowed anymore.
  7. With the new rotor and pads installed try and compress the caliper to the point it folds evenly enough to install it on the car, sometimes you do not need to completely collapse the piston back in.
  8. Pump it back out some so you can fold the rubber back in as you compress it.
  9. You'll be amazed at how much better your car stops now. The rotors will make some noise for a few thousand miles and it will go away so don't be alarmed by it.
  10. Posted this link in your other thread, it really works amazingly well when bleeding and flushing a brake system. https://www.amazon.com/Mityvac-MVA6851-Fluid-Extractor/dp/B00MPQ8RBG/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_tr_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=SF2JZPGNWMYJJYT596XV Like BC said, the fluid is discolored and holding water in it and really needs to be flushed, the fluid evacuator is perfect for pulling fluid from the reservoir and brake lines, along with pulling the new fresh fluid back down to the calipers. Replacing your old fluid with fresh fluid is a night and day difference in the feel of your brake pedal and will remove any sponginess it has felt like.
  11. Yeah, when you press the piston back in it must go back up to the reservoir, as you go about doing them all you will need to pull fluid out as you compress each one back in.
  12. Key in the ignition? Jackstand blocking the tire? Other wheel is on the ground? There really isn't much to stop it from turning.
