Sorry guys, all of the pics where lost.

I had loaded them onto Tinypic and deleted them from my phone to free up some space.

They’re gone. 😡

The good news is, I e found another picture hosting sight to use, so going forward, there will be more pics.

Just waiting on parts...

I’ve never used Tapatalk, and I’m to tight to pay $10.00 for hosting, so I guess it’s my own fault. 🙄

Now I need to find another picture hosting site that works.
I have been using imgur since the photobucket debacle, zero issues.

I must have been doing something wrong, I tried Imgur a few years ago and had a difficult time?

I just post direct from my PC... Take pics, upload to Google Photos, save to HUGE folder on my storage drive full of R/C-only pics, divided into multiple sub-folders for each of my vehicles, different "types" of R/C vehicles, other people's cool stuff, and so on - then edit for size if needed, crop out unneeded stuff from background, and post it as an attachment.

Every so often I delete all but the best pics I've taken from Google Photos.

That R/C folder is 5.3GB large, 52 folders, and 16,053 individual pics (as of this moment!) - that's in the last nearly 5 years. There's some pics in there that are much older than that, from older PCs.

I have a sickness...

So more parts have arrived. Servo horn was the first package. I got it installed over lunch.

CBC14-CB1-5-BFF-46-D3-A718-2-A8718-E0609-E

Next was the $10.88 “Hobbywing” 1060.

I’m pretty sure it’s a knock off, but I’m not sure? It came in a sealed plastic bag as you see it. No instructions, no Hobbywing box, decals, etc...

61716-E1-D-F96-E-42-DD-9282-125-DD3-C2-AA30

As long as it works, it’ll be fine and perfect for the budget.

I soldered on a Deans plug, I’ll install it this evening.

8-DDB2292-F255-4-F04-A79-C-90-E4-A83-D8522

The main thing I had been waiting for, was an Injora “pre painted” half cab Ford F100.

It’s a printed PVC body, and I think for the money ($27.49 shipped and the fact that I didn’t have to paint it) it looks great.

And what better color for Project Lo-Do than RCC and/or money green!

A490-B1-C3-0-ECE-48-F5-8860-14945-CCDEB19

2362-DAE8-B4-D5-4-DD5-AFBB-2809-E4567056

F46-EE5-F7-CF1-E-42-CE-B55-C-35-DC08-C992-D2

Forgot to get body post, so I’ll swing by the LHS tomorrow, I hope they have some in stock.

I need to get the body trimmed, fitted, mounted as well as adding a few decals to personalize it.

That’s it for now...

Got done early this afternoon and headed straight to the workbench.

Got the ESC mounted and the wires routed. I know it doesn't effect performance, but I like to keep the routing of the wires neat.

9-D0597-EA-171-B-4-C17-8375-7071-C3-AB60-D0

Started trimming the body and just sat it roughly where it should sit.

Dying to know, what do you guys think?

Seems to be pretty good quality.

After I had ordered mine, I found them for $14.94 shipped on eBay!

Wish I had seen it earlier, the different would have paid for the ESC!🤣

I've been wondering when someone would use one of those Injora bodies!

Injora has a lot of good ideas, particularly compared to some other similarly-priced stuff.

That caged back half they released, almost immediately every place that sold it dropped the price to a real steal - $29.99.

They were careful to not directly copy Pro-line - it only resembles theirs superficially.

I picked up some wheels from them recently, super nice - initially I thought they were basically doing an aluminum copy of a steel wheel - but then I realized, they are somewhat similar to the RC4WD Tango Down wheels. Funny thing is, they are even more detailed! At $34.99 for 4, no less... With SLW-style hubs!

WOW! Do you have a link for the wheels?

Yeah that body is not bad at all. Do you have plans for a cage or something?

It definitely needs one!

I’m going to see what the budget looks like.

My Capra will hopefully be here by the end of the month and thats going to be a black hole for my budget.

It might just have to go as is for the time being.,

Just ran the numbers, I’m under $200.00, so a cage might be doable...maybe.
