I found my RC car box. My nitro powered car is a Duratrax Maximum BX.


Rick, something like this in design?

Yea it was laid out similar to that Nick, but the motors appeared to be larger and it didn't have a center cockpit like the one you have pictured. It didn't have long gear like that either. I do know they paid several thousand dollars for theirs.


Also Nick, I wonder how many folks can guess why the one motor leg is painted red ... it took me a while to figure that one out.

But I'm slow!

Red for direction I would guess. Need to know where the "nose" is...

I've seen some videos of some seriously awesome versions of those things, and they ARE expensive...

So today we had another drywaller over and should have a second estimate by Monday. I also put up more insulation. Including the home theater walls. That was great as the room is now fairly enclosed light wise. So I took the beast of a projector downstairs and shot on to the vapor barrier (plastic wrap) to mess with sizes so that I knew where I would need to mount the projector mount in the ceiling, as well as confirm seating distances... Then when my wife and oldest got home (at different times of course, we reviewed the image size and seating distances that I worked up. I DID take some pictures and I resized them for the internet and uploaded them to my web storage, but we then left to do some Christmas shopping so I didn't get the images posted. Now I am sitting outside a dressing room while my wife tries some things on. I will get the pictures out here yet tonight. Tomorrow I only have a few hours to work in the basement, but I hope to get some of the hat channel up. Maybe I will get it done and the ceiling insulation back in place. I won't know for sure until I get the first channel up as to how long it will take...

OK. Pictures.

Coming down the stairs, if you turn to the left is the game room area:


Straight down the stairs is the future wet bar area:


If you keep turning to the right (and going past the home theater, you end up in the family room looking at the bedroom.


Turning to the right is the future office:


Followed by the bath:


And turning in a circle shows the other part of the family room that shares a wall with the home theater:


Heading back down the hall towards the home theater door:


Here is facing the back of the home theater. Note the projector and "test seating position" chair:


In the back corner is the equipment rack area:


Here is facing the front of the theater:

I recessed a box and an outlet so that my star ceiling panel has a place to go to make it able to attach to the ceiling vs. being suspended down from the ceiling like last time:


Here are the projector video feeds and power. After testing today, I will end up moving these back 1 floor joist. The boxes are adjustable to acount for the depth of the 2 sheets of drywall:


Last, but not least, are my "Duct Seal" covered outlets. Or at least one of them. These are like Putty Pads only they come in blocks and need to be worked into pads. $1.90 for 2 outlets vs. about $4 for the pre-flattened ones, and quite a bit cheaper than the "acoustic" Putty Pads but should yield the same result. These went around outlets, switched, and wall sconces. I am going to put some on the video feed and projector power boxes yet.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to have to refer to this thread whenever the major work on my basement begins.
