    Is there a place i can start out for 1/5 scale cars to buy???? Im starting to get more interested about them...Something under $1000.....
    I have no clue how much it is worth...... but i have seen this model sell on ebay for less than $600.00 dollars used.....

    If you want to get started in 1/5 I reccomend going to KZ Speedway in Sun Valley and have a talk with Karlton Spindle he's a cool guy he'll have you set up in a couple of days......

  5. SVM Crono being competitive 
    #55
    I am new to 1/5 but recently came 3rd place and TQ for my class at the CANADIAN ROAR NATIONALS with SVM Columbia 2000 RTR. On that day, i suffered from low gearing ratios at the straight, but otherwise the whole car is stable.

    I upgrade the servos from stock RTR to HITEC's, and use my own electronics, make some cable brake adjustments, fine tuned the suspension, droop and that's it. ENGINE IS STOCK. and I had the same lap time with one of the HARM drivers with mod engine.

    I was impressed.

    Cheers

    I am definetly thinking about stepping into the 1/5 scale realm. But I have a few questions:

    1. I have had many nitro cars (1/10 and 1/8) and hate the whole tunning deal. Is it as hard and do you have to tune these engines as much.

    2. After doing some research I like the SVM's but I cant seem to find a dealers website or any real info besides what I see in their ads in R/C Car Action and info on this thread. What do the SVM's cost compared to others and are the parts readily available.

    3. When searching for bodies I noticed different width's...do most bodies come in different width's because of difference's in the car...and which width is the most popular?

    any help would be great...Thanks

    You have no clue how great it feels to hear from another person who owns a SVM Car .....

    Do you have any information on the New MK. 6 I have been hearing nothing but bad reviews from it ?

    Anyway I would like to chare some pics on my own car. It is a H.A.R.M. SX-3 with an Zenhoa GS230 Rc1 Ebos-tuned engion and all the options on the market. Lauterbacher Tuningpipe, you name it.

    Maybe you´ll kick my as in a drag, but not for sure, after all both my engion and muffler are tuned. I´v gott aproximately 5 hp at the moment and I am going to buy the new zenhoa engion before next summer. You know, zenhoa is introducing a new engion, it is as powerfull as a seufert-tuned zenhoa 230 rc, wich is the most powerfull engion att the moment.

    Now I don´t shop there, we´v got some stores in sweden as well, they buy the H.A.R.M parts from ABC in germany, Lauterbacher comes from germany too and FG also, and those three brands are used on my car. Mostly harm of course...

    We don´t have the mk in sweden and not i europe att all I think, do you mind telling me a litle about it and give me som pics. It locs agfully simple too me and not as well develloped as harm and lauterbacker and RS5 (the totaly carbon car) butt maybe the weight does it in the races. But the new mk is fully made in aluminum, isen´t it? and then it must be heavy as the rest of the brands cars. Anyway, why are the engion mounted facing the sky??, seams pretty dumm since it gets a higher centre of gravity and it roles over mouch easier, due to that and the low weight..

    Of course I race it, but only in sweden soo far, I know where you can get those Pegaso rims wit almoust every kind of tier you wich. there is a man here in sweden who sells them, you can take a lock att his sight and then mail your order. I recomend ordinary rimms and tires but the pegaso system works ok and I think it works ass well on traks with high gripp.
    The car is soo clean because I have poliched every litle screw and bought a lot of new parts for it this winter. It is standing in my room and I cant stand a dirty looking car the whole winter..

    Here is the sight, you may chose englich lanuage too: http://www.uffesminiracing.com/

    Hmm. now I see that even if you chose englich some text are in swedich. anyway, the rimms cost 120 kronor and the tires 330kronor for one pair, that is 450kronor. which is about 50 US dollar. mail him and ask fore prices and possibilety to send it to you

    ...just look through the "Monster Truck" Section. There are some threads regarding large scale MTs including links to manufacturers.
    mit freundlichen Grüßen / kind regards
