I'm not hating just think It looks way out there. Could just be the pic, either way I was just mentioning for conversation and opinion.
I go for fun anymore, Scale and coolness are second.

Oh, I wasn't saying anything at you bud. No worries, I'm just a smart ass. And I like the pre-runner bumpers myself.

Carry on!

I just pulled my transmission apart and it had all metal gears.

I wonder if they randomly put metal gears in, or just read on here about how much the plastic ones will suck which potentially drove sales away (to the ascender which is the same truck with more durable out of the box components) and went with metal gears without posting about it on their site

I think the early ones had plastic gears. Then they went with metal gears. Got mine just before the first of the year.

I preordered mine, and got metal gears.

With this said, I suspect assembly error rather than anything else.

My gears are definetly metal.

Contact axial and I'm sure they'll send you the plastic gears free of charge. Great CS stand up brand. Give them a chance to fix this before giving a bad review.

Funny you should mention this. I picked up one of those $229 Deadbolts last week. One of the teeth on the metal drive gear broke and the metal fragments damaged the plastic gears. I emailed support about it and they asked me for the part numbers of what I want replaced. I gave them the numbers for the correct drive gear and the metal idler and final gears. I just got word that the repair was approved and I'll receive an email when my parts ship. I asked for the metal gears since they want me to give them the part numbers, but aside from that, it's pretty good customer service.

Good to hear they are standing behind their products. I personally have never had a problem with even their plastic gears in the transmission. I have broke their old school aluminum outputs...


I wonder if I should throw my extra brushless system in my honcho?

You know, to see what breaks....


In other news I made up some inner liners out of a 1 gallon milk jug.

Decided to test out the new fender liners...

I walked 2.6 miles, And I am sure the truck went double that.
Hit a riverbed, with a little of everything. Rock, sand, mud, water,snow, ice, and logs...


Started on some bigger rocks.








And why I pulled the fenders...










Tine for the riverbed.



And snow.





Water...



Nice hillclimb, with a nasty lip up top.



She wants to go faster...



Into the mud.



Wheeled right out of this.



Not this.



Poser shot.



Reason for the retractable light bar...







River rocks!



Ice.





Sandy riverbed...



Going to need a recovery here.



Pure sand.

I see you have been running in winter conditions, any issues with breaking any of the plastic parts? I have broken front bumper parts on two different occasions. I ended up just replacing bumpers.

No sir!

I have been running her hard, but I also tend to drive with mechanical sympathy. I don't push her if bound up, and my buddy and I really try to not run into each other at speed. We do have the ocasional push off, but nothing destructive. I have not fallen of any big rocks yet, but have tumbled off the ocasional ledge, like the one shown.

All of my breakage has been on small tumbles or hits, matter of fact it had a good roll today and walked away undamaged.

Good to hear, I must have recieved a honcho with good plastic?

I made it out with Cory(HLDMYBR) today, Got more shots of his rig than mine, go figure.



Just to prove that mud was bottomless.

I picked up my Axial exterior Detail tree... $!0.99

Mounted the smallest mirrors...

The fire extinguisher will be zip tied to the rollbar.

I haven't done much rc anything lately. It has been much to cold, and a unheated shop doesn't make for a inviting workspace...

Try 10 degree days with 10-15 mph wind. Brr.

I did trim the corners off the front fenders, to eliminate the light rubbing of tires on fender...

Today was 15 degrees and sunny so my big bad F150 got to play in the snow... Pushing snow with the bumper is fun...

Been in the same boat. Freaking weather has taken a toll on me. I get off work and don't want to go out and deal with it after.
Soon I hope it'll break and we can start hitting the trails.
