Rookie needs "MAJOR" help!!!
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, August 16, 2005 11:47 PM
I'm new to the 1/16 hobby and in need of some help. I never owned a R/C & I'm not mechanically inclined so a lot of the jargon is new to me. I currently own a R/C 1/16 Tamiya Tiger I. My questions are as follow:
-What upgrades are essential in making my Tiger realistic looking and durable before I begin building it? I'm concerned that small detail such as photo etch will only fly off during operation.
-I'm considering the upgrade suspension, is it worth it?
-I've read a lot about "Gear Reduction" on this forum. How important is it & what is the most efficient way to do this?
- Reading this post, there has been reference to certain websites for tips & after market products...many of these seem to be out of business or inactive...what companies are still in operation?
-Finally, if you may suggest further websites or forums to assist me.

Thanks everyone for your time!!

First of all, welcome to FSM CaribMar.

Secondly you'll probably get a much better response to this post in the Armor forum. This forum is pretty much for people getting together to build a model to a theme.
