    this is bull, just trying to propagate the AD at the end.

    I was hoping to boost the range on my rc car.

    I agree, this is crap.

    The tinfoil hack doesn’t do anything good, and will likely decrease your range if anything, and it’s just a BS ad at the end. (which is also crap btw).

    @RocketGuy- I agree.

    @Brendan-Good call. I noticed that too.

    But hey- It’s Jonah. I look at his submissions with all my ‘fiters’ on from experience. Why do you think there is no contact info on the masthead? Probably overload the server:)

    Heck, the title isn’t even corrected. Hours later…
