06.19.05 - Sold my T1M. It was
a fun ride and a great little car. Feel free to check out the site
and see just what I did with it while I had it. I'll leave this
site up for anyone interested in finding more about Xray's little T1M
that never really made it off the ground.
04.08.04 - Got the servo installed,
the esc mounted, the Rx shrink wrapped and hooked all up, and the tires
glued (what a nightmare that was). I finally took some pictures
too so the PICS
page has been updated with something else besides white space. My
D6 motor comes tomorrow and that's the last piece of the puzzle before I
can drive it. I still need to paint the body, but I do that later.
The only thing I've been able to do is crank the steering back and forth
and watch the wheels turn, turn, turn. It's fun, and that servo
rocks. It's super quiet and easily turns the wheels even on heavy
carpet. Like they say, you can never have too much torque.
I'm also thinking that I may need to put the links at the top of each
page as well as at the bottom. That way as the page gets longer,
you won't have to scroll so much to click around the site.
04.05.04 - So I've started updating
a few of the pages. The SETUP page has a list of my current setup
including all the electronics, cells, ESC, servo, etc. that I'm using in
my car. I also babble for another few paragraphs about why I chose
each of the components in my setup. Soon it will include a list of
some of my friend's setups as well, for comparison sake. The
is also up and running. I'm poaching on my buddy's forum for now,
but it may ultimately become the official forum for this site.
I've also got some generic LINKS to a bunch of site that I go to
regularly for RC information and whatnots. So forgive the empty
space, and since there are probably only two people even looking at this
site right now, I'm sure it won't be a problem. I'll keep the
updates coming, especially the first Test Drive. I'll be writing
up a nice long review for that one.
04.02.04 - The T1 Mini Touring RC web page has officially launched.
I'm just getting started on a new layout for what will ultimately be a
really cool T1 Mini site dedicated to this sweet new RC car. For those
of you who've been out of the loop, a new fad is emerging on the horizon
in RC. Something remarkable, something ingenious, and a little
something we call - 1/12th Scale Touring RC.
Q: What happens when you take a world-class 1/10th scale RC car and
shrink the wheel base to 208mm, bring in the track to only 165mm and
still use huge 2.2 inch wheels and all standard electronics?
A: The Mini 1/12th scale is reborn.
This page for now will be a placeholder till I find more time to fill
it all in with some useful content. My car is still in the
building stages. Actually the kit is complete, I'm still waiting
on the tires, servo, and motor. Then I need to build the battery
packs, install the electronics, paint the body, and I'll be ready to go.
Until then, I'll start to get this site up and running. We're
hoping to get a dedicated Mini forum going soon, as well as some other
fun gadgets and gizmos. So stick around! And drop by again
