So, what did you do RC today?

Dropped a bitchin' motor in. 87/17 combo on a SWB chassis. Ready to rip it on an ultra short track (behind the parts wall, thru the secret door of the LHS, on a Friday night in 1992). Steering would be tough though.

I took out my GT2-e high speed car for its maiden run with its first car body. What a night and day difference. I have a cool new toy 8)


I’ll need to get my son to record some video.

Road tripped for the FBMP local deal of the day. Ad simply stated "RC Parts - $100," then had to go ten pics into the description to see the 10. 4.5 hours of driving, but I am good with it, and networked a new contact looking out for me. :D

In the middle of the night I thought about the broken wheelie bar I swapped on my friends stampede.

And how it might fit on the back of my high speed GT2 :shock:

My brother first bought himself and my nephew both Bigfoot Stampedes, which seemed to constantly break all the time. Then he bought himself a Slash 4x4 VXL and my nephew a Rustler 2WD VXL. They're both so much tougher than the Stampedes, and the Slash almost seems as tough as an Arrma (I have a Typhon 6S for a comparison).

The Slash, Rustler, and Stampede share most of the same parts.

The only thing that I've damaged on my Stampede was bending a kingpin. And that happened when I clipped a 16' trailer jack at full speed. It left a huge gouge in the front bumper.



My son managed to bend a kingpin and a shock shaft on his Stampede. He jumped it off the roof of the neighbor's shed.

The stampede’s VXL 3S was glitching. I went to pull the motor wires from the esc and the female connector came off the computer board of the ESC. I was able to easily disassemble and repair it.

Installed a lipo in my DX5R.
But apparently the radio won't turn off if the battery is over 8.41v. Well I will not stand for this tom foolery so I raided my basement for a switch, tore apart the radio and did some surgery. Now I have a hard power cutoff switch.
