In Topic: What's the story behind your user name/avatar?

02 March 2012 - 05:50 PM

My user name is my Radio call sign from 1967. My Avatar is the fastest 1/32 GT Car in the Area. I first set up that Mosler over four years ago and it has never lost a race! Even though it is a totally stock as it came from the factory parts wise. I just went through the car and set it up to have a perfectly flat chassis, and friction free bushings and properly meshed gears. I made sure I trued the wheels and Tyres to where they are perfectly true, and I replaced the rear tyres with Yellow Dogs( which is legal under the rules for factory GT) I also replaced the front tyres with Slotit Zero Grips. The rules actually allow changing the gears and wheel to metal one, but I have retained the factory plastic gears, as they are lighter. The Car is now Banned at two of the Traccks I run at, so I am now running a Supra that is winning the Races

If you do it that way, it will look like the metal gold!

In Topic: What are the best types of airbrushes?

02 March 2012 - 02:45 PM

I would agree on the Paasche H model as the very best single action airbrush and a good one to start with, but when you want to move up to a Double Action I recomend the Paashe VL, or Talen siphon models, and for a fine detail brush the Talon Gravity Feed. You can't Buy a better brush than the ones made by Paasche. I have tried IWATA Brushes and I own one , But they are no better than the Paasche Brushes, they just cost three times as much or more. Badgers are no where as good as the Paashe. I haven't tried the Grex becase I am not comfortabl with a pistol grip airbrush.
The Paasche is the oldest brand of airbrush in the world, because they were the original airbrush, starting in 1904, and they are american made!
