While there won't be any in that box, there are some around the place.... sadly, my next (first) trip to Indiana might be somewhat delayed..... ;)

Got the Turtle Labs workstation today. I didn't waste any time filling it up with tools and putting it to work.

Nice! I almost went for that one! It ended lower than I expected too!

There's some serious slug bug envy going on... 😁

I look at those controllers sometimes. They look so cool!

USPS brought me a set of 1/4" axle CVDs, a pair of 3/16" axle rear wheels (wait, these don't go together?!?), and a nice assortment of freshly cut Factory Works goodness.

Not a lot, sadly. I am in back-order hell.

I did get drive shaft cruciforms for my Top Cat. I hadn't bought any because I never imagined they would wear. I assumed metal, even cheap metal, would always win rubbing against plastic. I have a stockpile of the plastics driveshafts. On this old Top Cat, the cruciforms were very badly worn. That sent a shockwave through me. :lol: I have 2 4WD and 4 2WD buggies that use the same part, so that is 32 of the little buggers. :shock:

Yep, they wear amazingly.... I've had them almost completely worn through. Most long-time Schuey fans will have piles of good driveshafts and ends, but less of those do-dangs - at least, until the re-res started popping up. Strange, but I guess most will still have all the old, worn ones still in the pile, rather than throwing them out... or is that just me :shock:

I am at that point now: I should toss these old ones, but I won't :lol: They are in terrible shape, but they were working. Once Schumacher moves on to the "2000" series of vehicles to re-re, we may never see them again.

Another Pro-XRT in ok-ish condition arrived today. First Sports version I‘ve found. Bought it mainly for the box and manual as I‘m missing those for my other one :lol:
Man, the box art looks so cool 8)

This cool M&Y motor arrived today. It has the slot car sized brushes but with full hoods. It has brush screw heat sinks. It also has little tabs that appear to be just for capicitors. What a neat little motor.
