Another piece of positive feedback to an answer to a question about a glow plug that was stuck in an engine. The question & reply can be seen on the On-Line Forum.

Sorry for the late reply, but thank you so much for your help. It was incredibly useful information - the overnight oil thing helped! I was looking all over the web for a site with this information and I couldn’t find any, so it would be great for you to post it up.

By the way its a great website you’ve got going, so keep up the good work.

Once again, thank you.

The day started with someone from Portugal congratulating us on the site and asking if he could put RcTek decals on his car, which was appreciated. Later we received the below in a message form Randy Caster which was entitled Awesome;

Hey guys, just wanted to say what an awesome site you have put together. Finally people with brains have made an RC site!

Hello, Just thought that I would let you know that before I looked at your site I knew about as much about RC cars as I do about fridge freezers. Now I know a lot more, from someone who’s new to the Hobby I appreciate your info in an easy to understand format. Excellent site, best regards RH.
