Tonka Summit

All custom Tonka Summit combines a 1970s Tonka body with a Traxxas Summit:






And probably the most action packed few minutes of FPVing you've ever seen:

^^ that is AWSOME!! i want an FPV system that can do that =( unfortunatley i dont have the money for a good FPV system and a slash doesnt work well as it gives to much vibration.

Here is my 2008 kyosho DBX. I've been running it alot for almost three seasons now so I'm guessing it has about 30,000 miles on it. Top speed is 400 scale MPH and she wears out tires pretty fast. Replaced steering servo with a new hitec 5645 digital metal gear beauty. I might order the carbon ceramic brake rotors because.....well.....they just sound awesome.

This is one hella race car and I just won the parking lot neonapolis 500 last week. And it wasn't an easy win either since I had to beat the famous "piston" pete andretti and of course bobby ray caterpillar who never uses his turn signals or rear view mirror.

Wish I knew how to post these pictures just real big as opposed to the expandable thumbnails.

They need to be posted on some location/website etc. Anywhere, like Flickr, etc. Then when looking at the photo, right click it. Look for "properties" and "view image info" or the http address. copy that.

When, post something here, go to the little picture icon above in the "Go Advanced" window and paste that link there. The photo should then open full size when you post it.

That being said, please don't post images much bigger than 1200 pixels wide. If you do, they are too big for most people's monitors. And, it slows down the pages loading for sure.

That's how I do it anyway. Are there other ways?

If I just upload them, they look like this. But, one nice thing about RCGroups is they have larger than normal thumbnails. These full size photos are 1024 x 768 pixels.

Somewhat, yes.. I guess I left a couple steps out regarding the file sharing stuff earlier. (my apologies, I suppose I assumed that was known) Anywho, do that (I use Photobucket) & as HelloScott said, find the direct link to the picture. Then as I said earlier, paste the link into your post & put "[IMG]" directly before and "[/IMG]" after it, no spaces. Most file sharing sites will actually give you the link in multiple formats to help simplify the process a little bit, in which case just copy & paste in the one that says "IMG code" next to it. (with Photobucket, you hover your mouse over the pic for the different formats to show up & left-click the one you'd like to copy) As far as I know, the pic must be uploaded to some sort of site & the IMG code format/tags have to be used, in order to insert said pic into a post without any sort of thumbnail/preview, such as below:



Just using the sites upload function is definitely the simplest way to post pics though, and like ya said, the thumbnails here are nicely sized.

You guys might like this one. I don't think I've posted it in the past. Its a P-51 Mustang theme. Parma Rattler body on a Traxxas stock Slash. Faskolor metallic blue and silver paints and some P-51 decals I already had from an airplane kit. Sold it on ebay, so I don't have it anymore, but I might make another. Pretty simple paint job. When I was at RCX in Chicago last month, a guy did something similar for a P-40 Warhawk theme. It looked good too.
