Looking good man! It was good to get and run some rigs.

The hot rod is definitely one of the cooler rigs Iíve seen, but for pure driving enjoyment I personally liked the 4ws truck and the gladiator.

Surprisingly, I havenít been working on much.. until this week. I was able to get some drive time in this weekend. Ran my gspeed v3 4ws for the last time because itís getting swapped to a new chassis.
Got to run the Ď35 hot rod, and man that thing impressed me every time I drive it. Plus it just looks so damn cool.
Anyways, hereís some pics from the weekend and the new project

Good luck with the chassis swap on the 4ws. Itís already got a pretty mean looking stance!

Wish I would have made it up there Sunday

Sorry I havenít posted much, Iím in the middle of packing getting ready to move back down to Southern California so things have been a little hectic to say the least. I sold [mention]twade984 [/mention] my work bench.. one less thing to move.. and there was a comp this last Sunday Iíve been planning on attending. So I was up late Saturday night working off the coffee table putting the finishing touches on the new distinctive pd truggy. Got the wheel base stretched out to 13.25 roughly to clear the 2.2ís
All in all I was happy with my performance yesterday, not sure where Iíll end up because my rigs are no where near maximum points. But I had a blast driving and even excelled on some lines that I didnít think were possible in c3.
Had rough showing in c2, course one had more dnfís than finisherís. And course 2 I killed it until I clipped one of the last 3 gates. Not 100% but think I got the fastest lap on course 2.. of course that doesnít mean much haha!

Looks to be a very capable creature. Perfect for the environment itís in.

I havenít been very active here lately, but Iíve been poking in almost every day. Things have been pretty hectic the last couple months. Iím officially relocated to California, back to work and have a kid on the way. But I managed to get some RC time in.
I pieced together a vs4-10 pro for my dad, and he gave the body an old stroppe theme paint job. I then robbed the mamba x combo out of his gspeed and reefs 555 servo. Installed all that into the pro and built a stealth X for his gspeed v3 and installed a Holmes crawlmaster mini v2 with 2040kv snubnose revolver and shift rc x2 servo all before heading out to proline by the fire. I did some slight maintenance on a couple of my rigs and we headed out to the desert, had a great time regardless of the heat and rain. I canít wait to go back to horsemanís park again. I also picked up a bomber from Dred805 that I started stripping down.
Iím headed to Vegas in a couple weeks for my grandfatherís induction to the hall of fame and Iím bringing some trucks, so if anyone has any suggestions on where to run, Iíll take them. The bomber rear axle had a stripped screw and I was surprised I was able to drill and extract it without much effort.
Also got a new toolbox setup for work this week

I'd say you've been busy! Congrats on the new little one!

I have never been to Las Vegas to run the tiny trucks (but would love too), but have watched many of Topher Builds vids from there. I believe he used to go to Calico Basin near Red Rock Canyon on the northwest side of Vegas. From what I've seen and heard, there is always groups of crawlers out there every weekend. Check out Topher's videos to see more of them beautiful red rocks!

Yeah man, go watch some topher vids and get fired up!

Depending on how much further north you want to go, I can give you directions to Logandale trails where they held scale nats a few years ago. Thatís where I grew up actually.

Thanks everyone, yea Iíve been stalking tophers videos for a long time and Iíve been wanting to wheel in Vegas since his Capra video. Not sure what rigs Iíll be taking but it should be a good time and Iíll try to get some pics/video.

Some of you might have seen my other post, been thinking about purging some of my collection but Iím torn. In the mean time, I picked up this 10.2 from [mention]twade984 [/mention] and Iíve been meaning to get it together. Finally decided to work on it tonight, Iíve got a slider. Just need to order the origin full cab body and pick out some wheels. I had clear bullyís for it but donated those to my dads pro. Thereís also a slight chance Iíll run my pro body on this rig and run the origin full cab on the pro.
Also picked up a centered rear clear rj70 with the help of [mention]DRED805 [/mention] the bomber is a mess, I robbed the transmission and picked up a ďnewĒ used chassis that Iím not even sure Iíll use smh

A lot going on in the garage lately. Swapped the 4ws axles from the truggy back to the gspeed.. for now. Iíve got some plans in the making for a new project. Got all the pieces to finish the 10.2 project. New clear 3 gear trans, incision driveshafts, origin full cab body, and scale hardware for the wheel of fortune wheels. Hoping to get the body painted sooner than later.
Mounted a Holmes 500lp servo with 2700kv puller pro and micro x. Wrapped the new wheels with some vanquish falkens. Theses tires are super sticky, but the sidewalls seem a bit thin.
Did some work on the distinctive pd hot rod truck. Changed to stiffer rear springs, swapped to .475 hubs with the vanquish brake weights. What a difference! This truck is dialed now, still bummed I tweaked the frame last weekend but it straightened out ok.
Also no 1.9 rigÖ but thereís a very large rig rolling in the fleet now

Good looking 10.2 build! Nice color match between the wheels, shocks and shock towers! Speaking of shock towers, cool to see the VP clear towers. I don't see them much anymore. I currently have a set of VP towers in black and have been holding on to them since they are rare now.

Love the look of them new VP Falken's. Can't wait to try a set of them out!

Thanks Bmow! After seeing [mention]twade984 [/mention]tires stuff with lil nova foams Iíll likely do that. I finally go around to getting some paint laid out on the 10.2 origin body. I know itís the same as my pro, but thatís what I was going for. Pick a paint scheme and beat the sh*t out of it

Iíve got a lot going on and nothing all at once. Got a phoenix straight axle kit sitting on the shelf, going to build a mullet out of. Iím undecided about the body and all transmission/axle gearing to make everything jive. Been trying to get organized to have a place to work. Iíve got a co-workers xmaxx I need to dig into for him to figure out whatís wrong with the steering and front diff.

Iíve had the distinctive pd hot rod truck out a few times, that thing is a killer and itís become my go-to rig.
Some of you have probably seen my ecto build but I picked up one of those and itís a blast. First rtr since the new trx4 bronco.
Also took the rc speedy out today for some action shots. Held up perfectly even after some tumbles

Iíve been gathering the pieces for another project. Iíve had this idea for a little while and finally decided to pull the trigger.
A couple of you already know but Iím going to try to keep it under wraps a little longer. What I will tell you is, itís getting a bulletproof vfd twin and 2 Vanquish Capra steering axles. Canít wait to see this come together. Tonight I finally got the trans built, with all the machined gears, aluminum bearing plates, stand offs and lightweight motor plate, topped off with stainless hardware.
