Matt Whitman, Brad Johns, Todd Connolly, Adrian Parsons, Steve Craig, Tim Outhit and Barry Dalrymple
Two members of the Halifax RC Park Committee were on hand at the July 21, 2014 meeting of the North West Community Council. It was at this meeting that Halifax City Councillors Steve Craig, Brad Johns, Tim Outhit, Matt Whitman and Barry Dalrymple presented Todd Connolly and Adrian Parsons with a cheque for $5000 which was pooled together from the Councillors discretionary and district capital funds. The money will be used to gather the necessary supplies to complete the Halifax RC Park so that it is ready to welcome the community.
We want to thank these Councillors very much for the money, time and effort they have given us, to help make the Halifax RC Park a reality. If you are member of the RC community, or married to, or raising one, please remember theses Councillors at election time. They supported us when we needed it, please make sure you return the favor.
Here are the finals thanks to http://www.neobuggy.net/
For the last week or so, I have been taking a close look at the RhinoForce S2, the RC SCT Self Righting System from Torsional Concepts. I have shared my RhinoForce S2: Initial Impressions, RhinoForce S2: Assembly Part 1 and RhinoForce S2: Assembly Part 2. Today I am going to put it all together and give you my final thoughts.
Using the RhinoForce S2 is pretty neat, with the flick of a switch on your transmitter after you have landed on your roof, the RhinoForce S2 will put you back on your wheels. It really does work! It works great on asphalt, hard packed dirt and short grass. The longer grass will provide its challenges for the RhinoForce S2 as it does for a Short Course Truck. Once the RhinoForce S2 has been activated and you are back on your wheels, you will need to drive the vehicle carefully back to your position so you can manually reset the flap. Word on the street is that Torsional Concepts is looking into the possibility of one that closes under its own power.

The new brass bulkheads from Team Associated for the B5 and B5M increase your weight and configuration possibilities. You can add weight to the front for more steering, or provide chassis balancing. The bulkheads are a direct-replacement and come in standard 25 degrees and 30 degrees of kick-up. The 30-degree bulkhead will increase corner-entry steering.

When Team Associated discontinued the B44.2 a couple of weeks ago, many people asked what’s next? The answer to that question is the B44.3 Factory Team Kit. The new 1/10 4wd buggy will feature a new hard-anodized aluminum chassis, which helps lower the center of gravity to improve handling and durability. The chassis has been designed to have symmetrical torsional flex to improve handling consistency — the new floating motor mount, floating servo mount, and chassis machining help to provide the desired flex symmetry.

The RhinoForce S2 is the RC Short Course Truck Self Righting System, I posted RhinoForce S2: Assembly Part 1 the other day. Today I will take you through the second step in the assembly process, which is taking the completed RhinoForce S2 and mounting it onto your vehicles roll cage. The instructions for this are very well laid out, easy to understand and follow. Make sure your roll cage is securely mounted to the vehicle. This part of the process took me about 20 minutes, with most of the time taken to cut out the roof with the template.
