If it is coming from Central IL to the Chicago 'Burbs, have to wonder how many other states it's going to go through before it makes it here



If it's coming by FEDEX, it'll probably go through several SE Asian countries before it gets to you

BTW your signature links to an Instagram account that doesn't exist and it's completely different than the one you posted above with the SCX24 posts.
Yup, that’s what I’m thinking too

I need to change that link, I dropped GreenJeep when I scrapped the XJ 2 months ago

With the revival of solid axle monster trucks going on, it seems like as good of a time as any to build something I always wanted.
Looks good! This will one of those R/Cs that remains stock other than bearings.........for now anyway

That wouldn’t be a shock, so long as it doesn’t look like this by the time I get it



That may have been a UPS delivery, but Fed-Ex was rarely better..........

Went on A-Main and ordered a set of Fast Eddyís bearings for the Clod and my Pede, no clue what Iím going to do for servos or how to set it up with 4WS so that the axles can be steered independently of each other......maybe need to research that while Iím waiting on the bearings.....

Quick update, the SCX24 batteries and the Clod both arrived today

some new cheap tools



And something to take with me when I'm traveling for work that I can use in Clean parking lots, maybe find some others to race with. May take it to the local Carpet Trake on open track day to play around and see how I can do, hopefully not breaking it in the process.










Always wanted to get an FG F1 Comp. But this will do for now. lol
Xray 2018 Team Spec Formula One. New, fully built, with a Hobbywing Justock ESC and a Ready ROAR 10.5t fixed timing motor.
Has a decent Savox 1245 (think that's the number) steering servo. Got it ARTR only needing my radio and a battery to run.
Got it for a bit less than the cost of the kit itself. Guy was going to race in Cali, but Cali is locked down, so he built it end of winter and now can't race.

This will be a fun change. I grew up watching F1 so it will be at home here, even if I don't get to run it much.

That parcel in the picture, thats how one of my friends largest gasoline boats arrived.

But the funny / most infuriating thing was.

1: the parcel had been opned in customs, when they do that they of course close it again, with their own customs tape.

2: But when the parcel arrived at my friends door it looked 2X worse than the parcel in that picture in one end, and the pretty well backaged large boat inside had cracked gelcoat and a damaged rudder.

But Danish postal went Nooooooo that's not something we did you must contact the people who sent it.
But the kicker is, the customs tape was following the cardboard creases just fine, and if that had been put on after those creases came to be the customs tape would just go across the top of the creases in the cardboard.

And the boat was packaged well, the outside dimensions of the parcel was just about 2 x 2 feet and 6 - 7 feet long, so the boat was padded with at least 5 inches of Styrofoam on all sides.

And as it would have cost the price of the boat to send it back ( also very expensive in Denmark ) then in the end after postal misplaced it for a few months, we just had to fix it as good as we could.



My friend have a cloud too.
Actually he have 3 but the axles of two of them are put under a DIY 8X8

SSD 1.9 Trail Beadlock Rims (Orange Beadlock Rings coming) wearing a set of ProLine Class 1 Hyrax 1.9 shows in G8 compound


Got those along with a handful of other parts for the 2 current builds I have coming in every few days. This was Fridays order from Amain.


Then Saturday got the RPP order in. Easier to run a vid of it so here is that order of new goodies.

No pics, but I got my Fast Eddy’s bearings for the Clod and Pede in the mail today then Dad and Sister made Sams Club run and were able to get a ZAGG glass screen protector for my iPhone while they were there. Still waiting on the Cricut Maker I ordered to give my Sister for Mother’s Day, but that should finally arrive on Thursday this week.

Ordered these parts last month and forgot about them. Nice surprise in the mail box today.

I'm still waiting on another metal locker and some more stainless steel hardware before I tear down my GS02 to rebuild it.

My recent haul from Home Depot. I got a Milwaukee pack out for in the house tool and rc storage (definitely glad I went with a regular tool box at work), I also got the Milwaukee m12 rotary tool and some more gel threadlock. Not pictured is a pack of 1.5A m12 batteryís and Milwaukee drill bits for the Milwaukee electric screwdriver.

Iíve been thinking about getting a Dremel to keep at work as it would be useful as I build electrical control panels mostly in steel and stainless. The dremel can easily clean up some cuts from a uni bit and jigsaw. My work doesnít really supply any tools which sucked. Now the old plug in Dremel can go to work or Iíll cave in and buy another Milwaukee one and more m12 batteries.

Also just last night the gun Iíve been wanting to get for a wile finally came back in stock. It did a few weeks ago as well but I was too late. This time I didnít hesitate and pulled the trigger immediately. I got a sar K2 in 45. Mine wonít have any of the chrome parts, itís all black.



More rc stuff coming soon

As most of what I ordered has finally come in, Iíll add the rc stuff to the recent buys.

I picked up a spektrum xbc100 to use as a servo tester along with the adapter amain said I needed which was wrong! It uses an ic3 connector and every battery I have uses deans and I dont plan on switching, id have to swap the connector on multiple packs and 15+ rc. I also picked up the factory team shock/ diff fluid storage bag to keep it all together along with 10 packs of 4mm Bullet connectors for the mamba x escs I have going in a few cars.

I also picked up 2 sets of prospec slash shocks to run on the ifs wraith.

And onto the newest addition to the ever growing fleet, I picked up a tf2 lwb kit along with most of what I need to build it

Had various Build parts come in over the week. Most of them can be seen being installed on the 2 SSD/RC4WD Blazer builds I have going on.

Also working on a "SECRET" Project will will ensure better rig performance, as well as better Driver Performance. a few of the last bits for that came in today too.
Won't see pics/chat/vid of that until it is properly working and I am able to offer to those interested.
