Due to the thread name, I had a lot more enthusiasm when I clicked on the link....


After reading your "Daddy's Money" build, I'm sure this build will be just as great! Ready to see more progress.

Okay, okay. Its apparent I should have held off on the thread until I had more time to devote to uploading the pics. Sorry. Tomorrow

The G6 is the same weekend as my girlfriends birthday, so I told her we would go to Hot Springs to do spa things. She's really excited about it, she doesn't know about the comp yet...

Thanks dean. Are you going to be busy next weekend? I'm thinking about going to Alexandria to pay the Hare's Hobby Obstacle course a visit. I'll be back in BR on Thursday, so for now I'm just counting down the days out here in the Gulf.

When I was 18 and started working on the oil rigs I was told that if I work hard I can have anything I want. Impulsiveness has always been my vice, but since being introduced to the RC addiction a few years ago, the only regret I have is buying a Novak Wraith addition combo. I work hard and play harder. Thanks for checking out the build thread guys!

The front two are good. I think I screwed up on the back two. They go down fine, but won't come back up on their own. I need to work on that. Here's some more news. Today I went to change an axle bearing in my scx 10, and ended up ruining the brushes on it's motor. Too many cold drinks I figure.
I should have left well enough alone, I should have just stopped at the bearing, but since I already had it apart I figured why not just,,, screw everything up.
I changed the bearing, I jb welded the axial locker, I even put those shiny scorpion axles in, and I corrosion x'd the whole thing. I looked at the motor then pulled on the brush wires and one came all the way out and the spring went flying. I've searched my room for it but couldn't find anything. That's pretty frustrating, one day I will learn not to be an idiot.

I forgot to mention my rednek injunidee. I was having problems with my front, top link being loose and putting the drive shaft at bad angles and a straining my motor. Here's my secret: Between the spacer on the top link and the ball joint under the servo, I put a brass servo bushing flat side forward. On the front side of the ball joint I put a washer and then a slightly longer screw to hold it all together. I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I hope this helps.
