MINI'S HAVE WAY MORE TORQUE! RED ONES HAVE TONS MORE RPMS. MINIS ARE GOOD FOR POSING< REDS CAN HOP :)

And the tiny motor that are super powerful but ihave not tried posing with them yet

Car is cool.
Maybe you mean well but personally I get a bit disapointed by the buisness aspect of your modelcar buidling...it seems to be your only point in building stuff.
I see myself as a entreanpeneur (SP?)

And I was showing enthusiasm for the motors, I did not say those pictured were for sale did I?

I dont think I did, and honestly I wont sell these new ho's cause I think I am going to use them all!!

Things are really starting to work out now that I have the right motors.

And If I posted this under a new name, you wouldnt have said shit.

Just looking at your comment gives me a sour aftertaste. funny how I havent posted shit here model wise in a while and as soon as I get here, you got something to say.

I would have felt better if you would have said "much props car looks nice"

But no you gotta have something to say about me. :uh:

What an ass

By the way your models are the shit tho!

Nice Escalator :thumbsup: man, I tried making a 59 hotwheels hopper and it wouldn't hop, it would only lift up and that's it.

Well it isnt too hard, you can do it if you really work with it :thumbsup:


Once you get one down pat, they are simple after that. Just pick the car you want to do!

You need to make the axle guides close enough there is no play. My escalator is a bad example of that, it was made in like 10 mins and the guides were crappy. But if they are close enough to the width of the axle, they will keep the axle in line.

Also, let the guides be wider than the axle, so that they keep the axle in line. if you need more help I can post some pics and diagrams of what im talking about.

That is a nice lookin car.. I havn't been on here in a while, I was mad busy, but anyway... I like the hopper!! I had the same problem when I tried to build a hopper, and when I finally got it right it wouldnt hop. all it did was go up a few times and then it would sit there and twitch...I am gonna try a bigger motor..
