Still waiting on a full lense kit and axle wrap preventer for the Lunchbox and a tail light bucket and lense kit from Shapeways to show up before I go any farther on the bodies.

Yeah, these are only “medium” according to my phone?!

I discovered that this truck doesn’t have a HiTec spline for the servo saver, just Futaba and Sanwa (JR and Spektrum:x )

I had the same problem when I bought The Bruiser. Must be a Tamiya thing.

Grabbed a set of no name leafs from Amazon, they arrived a few days ago. Pic will be in the SSD Leafer build.
Got a no name set of 5 servo horns too.

today a few more goodies arrived.

3s 2500 mah 5c lipo for the RadioLink Tx, and a 3000 3s 30c to run a 3s pack in the Xray, and smaller pack for the crawlers.

A pair of 2s Gen Ace 4600mah 60c packs for the Xray X1
https://i.ibb.co/r56614d/IMG-20200605-170855143.jpg


On Monday, I received 2 3S 5200 30c packs for the crawlers as well just to pick up wheel speed and keep good run time for when we go out trail running.
no pic of them.

Heres the servo arms and a 25kg servo for the SSD/Leafer Blazer build. Will be mostly a 'daily driver'/light trail runner, so this should be fine.

I grabbed this 80A esc and a 4600kv motor for the SSD/Leafer Blaser as well. This is a BIG Esc, as big as a Monster X I would say. May be way to big for the build. May have to put this aside and use it in something else (Rock Rey etc) As it is a 1/10 1/8th scale motor so a bit bigger than I thought it would be, and has a 5mm shaft. It is also 4s capable. But If I can find a place to sneak it in with the rest of the things I plan on doing with it. It may go in. lol

But, I'll probably order an HW 60a esc/motor combo for it, or find something someone here has f/s. This one don't need too much, but I want to get some wheel speed as a daily driver rig.

The last thing in today's spending spree is a set of 130mm shocks for the SSD/Blazer Class 2 Rig. The stock 90mm SSD Shocks are too short and limit suspension travel too much. So these 130s should help that out.

Now that we're finally starting to get work again, I decided I needed a better, and larger, lunchbox...ok, so, technically, it's not exactly a "lunchbox"...it's a Yeti Tundra 35 rotomolded hard cooler.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...d8e867f4df.jpg
As a professional chauffeur driving large vehicles (Sprinters to Motorcoaches), who also tends to spend a lot of time 'waiting' for clients (sometimes several hours, and occasionally driving for overnight trips), my Igloo cooler just doesn't cut it anymore. It was perfect when I was driving the sedans & SUVs for shorter trips...but, for the longer trips of a Class B chauffeur, it's just too small, and it's not capable of keeping things really cold for long periods of time.

I’ve found that if you lay a large plastic Amazon bubble wrap envelope across the top of your cold stuffs it’ll last twice as long. Especially in a not so good cooler.

A friend gave me a Yeti can cooler (koozie) a few years back, and when I'm working outside in the heat, the beer stays cold, like it just came out of the fridge

Finally received it. This time, the photos ARE of the actual boat - ProMarine Skater X2, perfect for NAMBA's P-open class.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...900cfc71ec.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...60b1d85d73.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...27c43ff31b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...9251bdf369.jpg
Also received the FatShark/Spektrum FPV camera & Spektrum FPV camera cage that will be installed on the deck of the my rescue boat (ProBoat Shockwave 26), as well as the Spektrum FPV recording monitor to view the rescues from. If you look at the receiver connector on the camera (you can remotely activate/deactivate the camera using a switch assigned to any previously-unused channel), you get an idea of just how tiny the camera is.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...eb288b8eb1.jpg

I think it might be more of an old Tamiya thing, I think the Bruiser, Clod, and Lunchbox all predate HiTec, so there’s only the Futaba and Sanwa/JR/KO in these kits. I just ended up ordering the Kimbrough mid sized servo ever for the Box and 2 of the HD savers for when I go to axle mounted servos on the Clod. Back ordered a 24 pack of black antenna tubes too since I always forget when I go to the LHS:roll:

^ solid set up for that build!


After selling some stuff I was able to make this happen. Not sure I’ll drive it a ton but it will see a couple different bodies. GNX first.

^Nice buy TB! A drag car is next on my list!:)


Well, I've been in this great hobby for about 34 years and finally bought my first Traxxas Slash! I never thought I'd by another go-fast rig after spending years racing off-road buggy and dirt oval. But I said WTH! Why not!

A few friends in my area just picked up the Slash 4x4 and it kinda lit a spark to buy one. I think it will be a fun change to go bash and see what I can break!

Since all that is happening in the world, it has been difficult to find any type of Slash 2WD or 4x4 in stock anywhere. I had my mind set on the Slash 4x4 Platinum edition, but everywhere I checked, it was out of stock. I was checking out the Traxxas website and noticed that the only Slash 4x4 that they had in stock was the Ultimate edition. So I settled on it and it arrived a few days ago.

I also picked up a few upgrades to start out with.

Hey that’s a fun new toy right there. Those slash 4x4s can take a beating. Love bashing around the rally.

Congrats on the new car!

Everybody should have at least one Slash!

I got a SOG Terminus XR pocket knife. Carbon fiber makes everything cooler. :mrgreen:

That’s some good looking steel. I like that serrated back. Great trail knife amongst many other uses there.
