G'day from Melbourne.....
« on: October 16, 2014, 11:01:30 PM »
Hello LSD users...lol

A melbournite here, picking up my first RC car tommorow, thought I would sign up and say hello.

Looking forward to learning about what the hell I purchased, seeing the missuses face when she checks our bank statement and of course making some new mates on LSD;)

Ps. What's up with the crazy emoticons!?....lol....I think I'm going to like it here.....

Thanks all.

Hey there Ozzy, am in North coburg, how about yourself?

Yeah the flux should be the ticket, wanted to build the SS kit but decided noise might be an issue.
If the RC thing works out I might look into grabbing the 26cc kit too.

Many flux pilots on here? Have some annoying rookie questions on gearing,tyres,setup.

Ahh....the eastern suburbs, must be where all the Aussies live...lol....reminds me of home...;)

My Lebanese missus is true blue Aussie so I cant say too much.

Well, this thing (flux) is now on my kitchen floor with the cat standing on it....not too sure where to go from here....maybe prepare for a very impressed and excited gfriend to arrive home? Lol

Welcome mate.
Turn down your  throttle right down for take off, or else you'll just be spinning the wheels. Change your rear tyres, cause the standard ones are useless.

Also by far the most fun with a flux is on sand, so if you have some dunes nearby, get yourself a set of paddles

Nice, thanks for the heads up, don't know when I will get to the dunes but thinking proline bo-ties or hostile MX for just basing about.

Any suggestions on the best of the two for a good all round while your about?
