Hey racers, just thought I would throw this thread out and try to answer any questions and post some things I have going on here at Murdock R/C & Performance.

Performance packs and singles. This way to buy foam tires has been a huge hit. Buy any combination of 4 tires as a pack or singles. This way for those of us that use 4 different compounds can buy just the tires you need to race and we always try to get you the durometers that you want or as close as possible. Singles, pretty self explaning really. If you want to try a compound before buying it in pairs you can do so and save some money to make sure it works for your race program or track.

Hyperdrive performance packs. Another great money saver here. This pack include several extra things that you need to complete a kit at a high level. Buying as a pack saves you some money to put towards other needed things. The list of the complete package can be seen at our website in the car kit section.

Tires: Yes I use the same rubber as BSR and Jaco. Plus, when you buy a tire from us that means if you order a pink or purple, they will fit the durometer class that you expect them to when they arrive. No buying one compound and another coming out of the box.

1/10 rims. This rim has proven to be fast, light, extremely durable and small for a ton of tire life. The rim measure 1.80 x 2. I run my personal tires down to 2.04 and could do some more if I had more adjusters. The small size gives less rolling resistance and the flex properties make it fast.

Here are some general ideas and helpers: Do you have a diff that isnt smooth? Change the outside hub bearing. Most times this will fix it easy.
Do you have a wobble in your rear wheels (mine or anybodys)? Check your hubs especially left double clampers. You may have to loosen one and tighten the other to fix the slight wobble in the left hub. Then if you still have a little wobble, start by rotating the wheel on the hubs(left or right). A small wiggle at the hub can equal and much bigger one 2 more inches out. With my wheels you can also try to loosen one bolt and tighten the opisite side. The materials that they are made of will crush, so DONT OVER tighten.

Ill try to add some more ideas as time permits. In the mean time, check out the website and see if we can help in anyway. Shipping is fast. Most often same day. If we miss you on a phone call, please leave a message. We may be on the line, another line or in the tire shop. Im a hands on owner and when the machines are running we cant always hear the phone. Or shoot me an email. Im here for my customers 100%. Keep in mind when buying from Murdock R/C & Performance. I personally test anything new that is out or sold. If it doesnt meet my satisfaction. It doesnt get sold to you. I ton of time goes into testing to bring you the right equipment for your hard earned money. I carry some of the best equipment you can buy. KC Racing, Hyperdrive, KSG, Competition electronics, wolfe, LRP, Futaba, bandit racing bodies, and much much more. I accept credit cards and pay pal for payment

GOOD LUCK RACING, Rob @ Murdock R/C & Performance

Rob,

Nice touch with some simple tips...some of them "WE" know but sometimes forget, and I'm sure for the newbie they will be quite helpful as well...

Thanks swtour. Just thought I would throw some things out there to help out. Ill get around to adding some other things later on that may be of use as well. Even guys like me that have been doing this for decades can forget some of the simple things once in a while. Plus I thought the product support section would be a great place to keep everyone informed of what is happening here.

Sorry for a delay on a returned email the last couple of days if I was late. Computer went down and no shipping or emails could be done.

New products in stock

CE pit bull x 3. This charger have some nice features. MAHR lockout is a great feature. You can set this feature at the desired MAHR and the charger will not stop until it reaches that point (unless the saftey shuts it down). This is an excellent feature for dead shorted cells.
The next is the 3 stage charge mode. This allows you to set a charge amp that will charge to and from a desired MAHR.
Plus it has several other features for charging TX's and RX packs. $139.99

Integy full auto tire truers. As I do with most new products that come on the market, I have tested this machine and found it to be the best buy with the most features for the money. This machine comes in a padded case, adjustable return, high speed return, cutter speed dial, toggle swithes for spin direction, left-right direction, cutter shutdown switch, on/off switch and a motor that has plenty of power for the toughest rubber. $185
OPTIONS: carbide cutter $29.95, 1/12 arbor $29.95, 1/10 arbor $35, Carbide trim sticks $25 fine, $27 course

I had some glitches going on and it came to a head when I couldnt get shipping labels printed the other day. So, off to the computer shop we go to get things tuned up. Gotta thank the Brian and Jeremy at Iowa Computer for keeping things running for me. And getting it done as quickly as they did. In any event Slider. Your goodies are boxed, tagged and ready to go.

Just want to take a moment to thank all of my great customers for their continued business. I try hard to keep you informed and have the equipment that is needed to make your race program as successful as possilbe.

Hats off to my Team drivers as well. They have all raced exceptionally well the last few months. So to Kenny Collins of KC racing, Kevin Osman, Jim Silvay, Frank Peachock, Hastings (Norcca nats 19 turn WINNER), Jeff "HUMPTY Helms, and last and certainly not least, My special team members, little sister Brittany and our Dad Bill. Keep it up, there are good things ahead from Murdock R/C & Performance

Hey erock, the one that im stocking is the integy model not the eagle. The eagle is a good machine as well but the integy had an option or two that was a little better along with the price.

Is there any type of warranty with the truer with you or with Integy?

Reason I ask is I am in the market for a new truer but cant afford to shell out $400+ on the Hudy. But I want something I can trust. I had nothing but problems with the Ofna truer. And they want more to fix it than what I paid cause the 30 day warranty expired.

erock, I dont know the warranty for certain on the integy stuff but when I have sent things in they have been good about the turn around and fixing it. Ill look into it some more for you and see what the duration of the warranty is.

20tn40: RX packs are not needed in spec at all I dont think. You can still run your digital servo unless you are running it on the futaba hrs rx. I run open mod and 19 turn all the time on FM with a futaba 9550 and never run an rx pack. There are certain times that the rx pack is needed like on tracks like BMS where your voltage can dip low enough for the personal transponder to quit counting. So unless your personal is not counting at the end of a race or your running on HRS then your digital servo will run without them. But if you want to run one to make sure then a 5 cell is plenty.

Bud3738: Im sure the invoice is in the box Rick. Check again and if you dont find it then I can send a copy out to you if needed. Everything was there except the diff covers that you ordered. For some reason they have not shown up yet but I cant say for sure why. Ill make a call in the morning and see what the hold up is
