Does anyone have one those hard to find micro r/c racers?
P.S. I know where I can get them!

Does that answer your question? http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
I also got the tune-up kit, the new tires, the new axles, a Nissan Skyline body (which is on it right now), and the 38000RPM motor.
11-22-2002, 04:35 AM
Did you say 38,000 RPM???
I don't know anything at all about those things, but sounds pretty wild!
11-22-2002, 04:40 AM
Yup, 38000RPM. The cars themselves are powered by the same motors that cause pagers and cell phones to vibrate. You can get many different speed engines. Generally, the higher the RPMs, the faster the car goes. Unfortunately, higher RPMs translate to lower overall torque ... so the 38000RPM motor accelerates more slowly than the stock 22000RPM motor, but has a higher top speed. The torque is also a function of the gearing you use on the rear axle.
In the US, they're sold as MicroSizers. In Japan, they're sold as Bit Char-G (pronounced "Bit Charge"). Either way, they're absolutely flippin' awesome.

Never messed with any motors that small.. well, any motors http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
That kind of rpm just floored me though.
 how fast do they go?
11-22-2002, 04:43 AM
Made me raise my eyebrows as well, when I first saw the specs. Of course, the motor itself is very small, which means low mass, which means low inertia, which means that high RPMs like that are possible http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
See, I hate physics ... when it comes to this time of the day, I start thinking more. That's the signal to get some sleep LOL

Well, at the website here (http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,3973,604833,00.asp), a MicroSizer is shown to move at 3.22 MPH with the 22000RPM motor ... I'll have to clock my 38000RPM one somehow ...
11-22-2002, 05:04 AM
Hrm.... Too bad I never had the cash and time to try them out, but I just might one day!

"Geek Toys: MicroCar Smackdown"
It's a geek toy???
How did I miss out on that one? http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif
11-22-2002, 12:48 PM
Hell yeah it's a geek toy! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif That's how I found out about 'em! One night I was sitting there, and I read the review on that site I linked you to. I decided that, the next day, I would go and buy me a MicroSizer. $30 for the car and the remote control.
Of course, then I bought an ass-load of accessories for it, which brought the total closer to $100 ... but still, it's awesome http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif I took it with me that weekend to my girlfriend's house; I was waiting outside her workplace for her to come out, so I could give her a ride home. While I waited, I busted out my little blue WRX and started racing it about on my dashboard http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
11-22-2002, 02:10 PM
I know where yo buy them for $25 car with remote.
11-22-2002, 10:46 PM
So do I, the place I bought mine from dropped prices a week after I bought it http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif Oh well ... I am happy with what I have. It's fast as hell http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Can I see a picture of the controller?
11-24-2002, 02:43 PM
If I still had my digital camera, I'd post a picture of the controller. My dad gave it to his godson. He had better buy me a new one, seeing how I paid $850 for the fscking thing ...
You can see the controller if you visit http://www.microsizers.com/ .
11-24-2002, 04:20 PM
That's not the r/c car I meant. You can get those, zipzaps, or those things on the crazyape site. I'm gonna get a zipzap from radioshack.
11-25-2002, 12:46 PM
Zipzaps are pretty much the same as Microsizers, but Microsizers are faster http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
12-08-2002, 02:45 AM
I know where you can buy a digital camera for a good price. The camera is a HP Photosmart 320, it's $149
12-10-2002, 03:54 AM
Ever try ebay? http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
12-10-2002, 10:50 PM
Yeah, but not for cameras, does anyone wanna know where the site is or not?
