GS Racing Storm

gsc2003-stormRTR.jpgSo now I've got a GS Racing Storm R/C car. Justin and I had a bit of an adventure last night getting it turned on, but I' think I've got a grasp of the mechanics now. For my own future knowledge: glow plugs get really freakin' hot really freakin' fast.

The car, in idle, burns through gas pretty quickly. I think we let it run for a minute or two - about as long as our ears could take. I hope to finish breaking the engine in later today and getting some good test runs in - we shall see, though. The weather's looking kinda funny. If possible, you can bet your butt I'm gonna get some of the stuff on video.

  1. RC cars are so sweet these days. I remeber having an old RC car that used to chew through batteries by the bucket full - back in the days when rechargable batteries where new and expensive.

    Im looking at buying a RC Nitro truck in the near future. Being out of it for a while im finding it hard to get back into it, so i guess ill just take the plunge and buy one.

    Traxxas make some nice trucks, ive been drooling over the T-Maxx truck the last few days.

    I had to reread that about four times before I understood it (I think). Do you mean "you can bet your butt?"

  3. Yep. That's what I meant. I'll leave it like that for posterity now though, ok? 🙂
