    wind resistance, extra weight ... you sure stickers would help a honda?

    how's about a nitro chassis for the cabinets with remote start :)
    forgetting a tool at your box would become fun :rockout:

    I'd rather be a box than a honda.




    That revo is gonna be a blast to drive with everything you've upgraded. Have you got your brakes work'n good? With the power and control now available to you your prolly gonna need them :toast:

    each sticker on a honda is worth 5hp did'nt you know :rolleyes: :laugh:

    RC box would be nice but i think an RC cart is more feasible ;)

    i'd rather be a lada than a honda :laugh:

    it should start to get very interesting no doubt!

    so far so good on the rear brake's if the mod last's i'll share it with everyone.....

    what's goin' on with your Tmaxx? you need a new rear bumper yet or what? :rockout:

    :toast:

    lol, nope not yet ... maybe you should modify your wot approach to help conserve bumpers lol

    it wheelies like crazy, with the picco and factory tmaxx gearing i have a fairly large range that i can pop up the front end at will :rockout: compared to the 2.5 trx

    Gotta drop a new fuel tank in it tonight, busted out the bottom so it doesn't hold fuel very well.

    it was doing very well up to that point, clay is my fav surface so far :rockout:

    you still figure it'll be betteron fuel,
    mine sucks it back, my run time is alot shorter now... bigger or second tank is gonna happen for sure...

    the new radio gear is gonna make a difference in how i drive it i think :laugh:

    the throttle and steering response is insane now!

    the 2.5 is a great little motor but it is nothing compared to the picco :rockout:

    bummer on the busted tank, but at least it's and easy fix.

    chalk up another battle scar :rockout:

    you gotta drop some gear's in there man!

    i've yet to run on the clay and i'm ITCHING bad to run at that spot i told you about ;)

    i dunno mine get's me better run time's by 2-3 minutes.....

    i could be off since i never timed it, but it seem's like i go longer between fuel-up's

    lol, yeah man ... gonna have to put together a maxx carnage scrap book :)

    after running on clay, I don't think you'll be happy with anything else ... it is by far the most fun :thumbs

    If I had the badlands near by, I'd wanna be there all the time too.

    Have you had a chance to try out the new radio gear yet?

    Prolly gonna wait for the revo tranny before I start spending $ on gears...

    no, there was a snafu in the order. I called flm and the chassis has been re-ordered. This order bs can get a lil frustrating, sure isn't like pc parts :banghead:

    i hear ya!

    would be nice if the LHS stocked as much product and at the same price's as e-tailer's........

    i finished trimming my lid and reposistioning my exhaust but i found my throttle mix arm screw to be stripped so i'm gonna try and get one of those today and hopefully slap some paint on my lid!

    after running it this weekend I don't think there are gonna be to many factory parts left ... think I'll have pretty much destroyed or upgraded them all after this next round of servicing :)

    here's a lil clip of the last couple minutes of my running day :rockout:

    I tried that on my old 1/10 nitro touring car when i used to be into racing. Was pretty cool! Although it made a mess of the camera when i rolled it lol.

    which camera did you try?

    I've seen a few online for ~$40 with a range of 100-300m

    this one is nice and small, could wrapp it in something for a lil extra protection

    http://www.nitroplanes.com/wosmlora24gh.html


    the last run (oct 26) did (once again lol) a lil more damage than I figured ... smoked the tranny, rear diff, the clutch, the header and a rim ... it was alot of fun though ;)

    thanks JrRacinFan, I wish I'd got'n involved with this years ago :)

    it's more fun than I can describe ... I can understand your desire to come back :D

    my pc hobby has definatley been put on hold, I was gonna pick it up again bout now, but I wanna run in the snow so I have some repairs and water proofing to do :rockout:

    I need to pick up a dv cable for transfers and find a good (free) video editor ... clips should continue to get better :D ... could prolly justify a pro account with photobucket then
