I wonder, did anybody already try to mount a high-def camera on these cars and connect it with a VR headset. And then you could drive like in a 1st person perspective from a video game. But I suppose the weight of the camera + extra battery will make the model slower?

people tried it and it’s common for the drones. on the RC cars, it’s not that popular just because the racing tracks are not that big.

  • en Tamiya Tamtech Buggy Champ

  • I’m running this small version of Buggy Champ – Rough Rider for years. yes, it’s small and cannot run on the bumpy tracks.

    and I watched it’s not bad on the the rally circuit where I’m running my old RC10 and 834B runners.

     
     
    I started from finding a better motor for this 1/16 Buggy Champ. sport-tuned motor from tamiya was the most easy to find. but it turned out not much better than the stock motor.
     
    they released a better sport-tuned SPT recently. and, I was told it was good. I’m thinking getting one at some point. 
     
     

    this tamtech champ came with the plastic spring dampers. buggy champ runs like tamiya grasshopper with the stock shocks. actually it runs better than grasshopper.

    google found me Losi Mini-T shocks weeks or months ago. an I’m running with the shocks. losi shocks turned this tiny champ into a racer.

     
    Losi shocks are slightly shorter than stock ones. and this length is better on the tracks and my living room.
     
    Losi front shocks have almost twice bigger stroke with a dead center. and, this simple trick with shrink tube is working great. 
     
     
    then I came back to the motor.
    a friened who is an expert on the small motors told me to find “Speed 300 6V” motor from Graupner or GWS. 
     
    Speed 300 on ebay.de
     
    ElectricFly  T-370
     
    but the shipping charge for one single motor was overkill. I found this for less than $10 include the postage from somewhere.
     
     
    this E-sky 370 motor is cheap and can be found everywhere. it has this 1/10 style endbell as you can see. the size is identical to the stock 370 motor.
     
     
    the torque and speed are great for the scale. and it turned out this motor needs too much juice for the size. I might need more or better batteries.
     
    I ran with this setup for a while, then I went to Tamtech SPT motor and new shell. SPT is much better than older sport tuned motor in every way. I have brushless in my mind too. but the price is an issue for me.

  • en 50’s Switchcraft 1/4 black phone plugs

  • this switchcraft black plastic plug looks always nice to me. especially with vintage Jensen speakers and tweed amps.

    I recently noticed the material and the shape has changed through the years. I’m not sure with the exact timeline but, the first and second left ones look a bit older with the different shape of the end tips.

    the first one on the left looks like the oldest brother. it’s the one for my 5D3 with P12Q now.

    the next one came with 1953 tweed deluxe 5C3. the rest of them look like came from 60’s or 70’s production. I’m just guessing. I’m wondering when they started to put the nylon spacer not bakelite.

  • en Found a nice humped leather handle on Reverb.com

  • I keep checking out the the leather handles since I had some trouble with fender reissue.

    two different leather handles from Fender. both don’t fit the old champ

    the humped handle in the picture came from this company, Industrial Amps it looks very close to the original ones on fender tweed amps. but, the original seemed to have 3 layers. 

    [udpate] it was 30 something dollars when I found it. and it’s now almost $50.

  • en Tecumseh

  • Tecumseh, one of the greatest men ever to be born on the American continent. A Native American, war chief and statesman he was essentially a Native American George Washington. He saw his family killed by the white settlers and the soldiers of the new United States of America yet he refused to kill women and children.

    Among the tribes, there was no concept of Indians as a group i.e. you were a Shawnee or Mohawk, not an Indian. Indeed, even the whites were seen as “tribes” the British tribe, French tribe, Spanish tribe or, worst of all from their perspective, the American tribe. Tecumseh was a visionary and envisioned a Native American confederacy from the Great Lakes to the Gulf.

    He sided with the British in the War of 1812 only to be abandoned after the end of the war. Abandoned to the Americans who destroyed him and his people.

    Please note: No nation is all good or all evil. One must acknowledge the failings as well as the successes of a nation to truly understand it.

  • en ’54 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5D3 pics

  • this wide panel tweed deluxe 5d3 came to me with weber 12a125a speaker a few months ago. it was a very good combo and the price was fair with the new skin. but, I couldn’t stand the blue color of 12a125a. everything else was good to me and my friends.

    I’ve tried a like new ’51 p12r without bell, re-coned ’53 p12r came out ’54 5C3, black ’61 p12n, and this ’51 p12q.

    p12q is known as one of the original speakers for fender tweed deluxe. but didn’t have a chance to play with p12q before. 

    p12q breaks up early like p12r. it was my first question while I was searching this speaker. and the question has solved.

    I was obsessed with vintage jensen speakers a while ago. especially with p12n. but it didn’t work well with 5d3 because of the breakup point. or the family and the neighbors. 

    then p12q came into my mind. the sound was great like p12n even at the lower volume. and breaks up early enough like p12r in my imaginary world before I actually got this speaker. and it came true. I love this setup and won’t change the speaker again.

  • en Your universe is just a pattern of nerve fibers in the “black box” of your skull.

  • You think that the universe resides outside of you and it is true that there is something out there all right. However, that something is nothing like your perception of things. Let’s take the materialist view. That is that everything is just “stuff”. Atoms, molecules, quarks and radishes and all kinds of other “stuff”. That stuff is a kind of vibratory energy through which other kinds of energy flow. Energy is likewise “stuff” just in a different form.

    Your brain for all of its gooey gray grossness is a pretty complex thing. More complex than just about anything else in the universe. Stars and planetary systems are BIG but relatively simple. Now, within this gray matter are trillions perhaps a hundred trillion or more neurons. These are specialized cells. They are connected with neural pathways like a gigantic and complex net. When we observe we make pathways. When we think we make other pathways in exactly the same fashion except that the data comes from the brain, i.e. the pathways that are already present.

    The brain forging neural networks in real time.

    Now, everything you know, remember and experience has no existence for you aside from patterns in this network which began to form the instant your brain developed enough in the womb. So, all of your experiences are just patterns. If the patterns were changed, as in an accident then your reality changes. It is all just patterns connecting and relating to other patterns in this neural network. This is thought, cognition and self-awareness on a macro scale.

    Yet, reality, objective reality is something else altogether. It has an extrinsic existence outside of this pattern of neural networks. Your knowledge of it is very limited. Just enough to get around, find food shelter and a mate. When you sleep something else happens. The network fires in patterns. Not random patterns. Very meaningful patterns but without the necessity of obeying the laws of time, space or physics.

    Consciousness is so much more complex than even the greatest neuroscientists, medical researchers and philosophers can even begin to grasp and the waking mind is the least significant part of the picture.
