A lot happened in the last two days!
I decided to make a tutorial on how to make static running lights for you RC truck. I really wanted lights on my truck, but didn’t feel it was worth investing in a lighting kit. You know, the type you can control with a spare channel on the Tx/Rx. Having a basic understanding of electronics, I went the DIY route, as you can read in this article and see in the video.

I’ve gotten a lot done today on the car. Had to stop by the hobby store, which I hadn’t been to for years.. It still amazes me how just looking around for a good hour can seem like only a few minutes, but shopping for just a few minutes can seem like hours…
I finally found the type of epoxy I’ve been looking all over for. And at a reasonable (at least over here) price. Continue reading “Steering sorted!”
I’ve had this cheap-o toy RC car for some time, but it’s really boring and slow. It’s one of those mass produced things, that comes with it’s own “transmitter”. Continue reading “Remaking a RC toy car #1”
