Gearing

 

I posted this back in 2007 , I posted this at our  forums.thetoyz.com but is always a good read for gearing

The pinion is typically a metal part, however some manufacturers such as GPM and others are now using delrin gears. The spur is always made of a softer material than the pinion, typically nylon or some other type of plastic.

RC FAQs: How To Paint The Water Drop Effect by Squirrel

Ever seen a RC shell where it looks like it had water beads on it but it was actually the paint scheme? And it looked real?  Its actually very easy to do and it uses real water.

By the way, if you try this then please try it on a piece of spare lexan before using. I have used this with pactra and it didn’t work. However, it works great on spaz stix paint.
