    Radio Controlled Car-Fi

    Recently got back into racing Kyosho Mini Z's at a local track here.       Even ended up picking up the newer MR03 with the 2.4ghz ASF boards. The newer autoscale bodies are so damn pretty and detailed.

    Battery-fi (rechargeable & non-rechargeable)

    For anything that isn't very demanding (i.e. draws low current) the Eneloops are hard to beat as rechargeables. This is especially the case if the batteries are going to be sitting in whatever you're using for a long time.

    The Stax thread (New)

    Quote:   Congrats! I saw that ad this morning and noticed it disappeared quite quickly. If you ever decide to get rid of the 717 for an upgrade, I'm interested in taking it off your hands

    Only listen to the SR507s for a week then go back to your other phones and you'll start to realize many things wrong with them.

    Quote: Yes, can someone please move it back. It's quite annoying having to sift through thirty "what should I buy" threads

    A5 or HD595? a.k.a. Speakers or Headphone?

    None that I know of. They are hard to find used as well... I guess people love them too much to sell them.   Better start saving

    SRS for iWOW for iPhone and iPod

    If it's anything like SRS for your computer, it's going to be something that's impressive at first but also something that you'll learn to hate... and end up not using.

    Why is it so expensive to ship to Canada?

    Ship with the cheapest method (First-Class International). It's dirt cheap and stuff still gets there in around 2 weeks, often less. A 3lb package with pretty large dimensions (over 12" length) only cost me $13.50.
