1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    It's a Losi 5ive T 5th scale short course truck (I'll try and get some better shots of the chassis as I didn't realise how bad the light was)

    If you guys want some more info on it let me know and I'll post it up. I'll also post up some videos from verious races.

    It looks a nice hobby to have mate and I must admit I've fancied one myself from time to time, but I'd probably just end up wrecking it, like yours though, enjoy, atb.

    They are a lot tougher than you think and there are plenty of spares, option and after market parts so you can fix it if you can break it.

    Lovely looking model. I use to race 1/10 scale, its so addictive. I spent more on my model car than i ever spent on my road car. I could very easily fall back in to the car park racing scene. What sort of weight is the large model. KB1

    The price of some of these models is mad. The 5ive probably weighs somwhere between 45-50lbs.

    Supersavage, are those MCD RACE RUNNER wheels and tyres on that Losi?

    I used to race 1/5th scale up north, MCD RACE RUNNER V2, heavily nodded engine putting out around 7 go from 30cc, my laps timer. I was chairman of the "Northwest off road rc club" and we had about 70 members at one point. Started in Chester on waste land then got a good venue on a farm not far away and made tracks etc. Cut my teeth on the HPI BAJA AS, those things are great for bashing.

    I used to race 1/10th scale nitro on road with a Kyosho V1RR at the out door track on Wrexham industrial estate, not far from Kellogg cereals. It no longer there now.

    I know play around with an electric speed boat, gets 50mph true speed and I also do aerial video with a highly modified DJI PHANTOM with Zenmuse global and go pro 4k.

    In fact just looking to get another quad copter. Also have heli's, planes etc. Just love RC.

    suppose you get plenty of gear from Rosmods. I helped trial the Rock Oil 2 stroke synthetic that they market in gold bottles which is also the same as the venom oil sold as rosmods own brand.

    Yes they're MCD wheels and tyres, nearly everyone that races a Losi uses these as they're so much lighter than the stock Losi wheels also the tyres very well. I did have a 30.5cc OBR full Mod that put out around 7.5hp but that died so I now have a new engine which is a 30.5 ESP.

    I only really get the wheels and tyres from Rosmods as I get my bits from Freeprawn Racing as they stock a lot of the Losi bits and the owner races a Losi himself.

    It sounds like you have/had some very good rcs yourself and that phantom sounds interesting.

    RC is certainly one of those hobbies you can't get out of easily is it lol. And I can see air guns being the same.

    Just been on YouTube looking up videos for deeside rd bashing. Found one with my original race runner painted bright orange. Later had it painted in the gulf racing style ....was going to race nationals in 2011 with a friend from the club but he pulled out at the last minute ..... BiggaRod Racing. Look it up lol, you will see images of the shell painted up.

    Had great fun but love the quad flying now.
