So, what did you do RC today?

When it's R/C related, but doesn't fit anyplace else.

My TC3 is just do fun to drive! With the cold pavement and 12T double motor (pretty sure it's a Trinity D3 without label) it does some awesome powerslides! Unfortunately, the 'juat one more' bug bit me and I winged it a bit. Gotta print a replacement now.

Started the build of my rere Turbo Optima during summer of 2022. Got back at it last night. I was really impressed with my ability to find shock shaft e-clips in the carpet that had launched themselves around the room. I think it might be a runner next weekend... or in another 18 months :lol: .

Got in what I think is going to be the front axle of my '33 Ford. So, axles are determined I think. Waiting on actual final rear tires to come in later this week so I can finalize chassis width throughout, then get to cutting it.

That's handy to know because I broke my .050 AE driver too.

Mine had broken trying to remove a pinion (not one I had tightened). After breaking the tip I had to use my puller to get the pinion off
