I was surprised I didn't lose the radio signal while underwater.

Had those sitting on my shelf for years. Not the best for crawling but great bashing tires!

Took the Bug (Old Fung) to East Orange Raceway to try their Crawler course. Good times with my Dad, who at 71 yrs. young, is still rocking it with his SCX10 ll. Performed well overall but I would like to slow it down a bit. I thought the motor, spur and pinion combo would be nice and slow. Running an Integy 55t motor, 14/84 gearing. Any help or advice with this would be greatly appreciated.

I think I finally got the correct pinion/spur combo. Changed out spur to 88t, left the pinion at 14t and ran at a weekend comp in Class 3. Ran well, considering I'm competing against newer rigs with modern electronics. Time to move on to my other Old Crawler, hopefully I'll have the same good luck I had with this one.

Took Old Fung to "The Canyon". Ran well for an old crawler, good times!
