I'll keep my eye out here and grab a couple more if/ when they show up. I can only afford a couple but I'll send 'em free of charge to the first guys to request them... no place-holders please lol.

I believe it! A place to poop is serious business!

Can't believe what I had to go through to find the toilet that I needed... $200 budget, elongated, 1.28 GPF, non ADA bowl height, 12" rough in, 3" valve, minimum 2" trap-way... finally found it in an American Standard but took a while. Only downside is that it doesn't come with a seat so I'll have to get one of those too.

You will have problems on my toilet, due to the very small bathroom the toilet are a so called short version, so on the "length" of the seat it is about 4 inches shorter then a normal toilet.
TBH when i have to go #2 i first go to my bedroom and take my pants off, cuz taking them down on the bathroom i would have to do in front of the sink then reverse a foot and then turn 90 degrees and sit down.
My bathroom are about 8 X 4 foot, so you sure as hell aint getting any + sized Dane or American in there, unless it is to just brush his teeth or wash his face.
My shower take up about 4 x 4 feet.
On the other hand my mothers bathroom, that's about 15 x 15 foot, and could easy be retrofitted to support a elderly or handicapped person needing wheelchair access.
Thats larger than my bathroom and kitchen put together. though our apartments are pretty much the same 2 room and area size, mine are just put together really bad with unreasonable large living and bedroom + a okay sized kitchen, and then the ulltra small bathroom.

Capra (first crawler) is finished, and it appears what was supposed to become my second crawler (Trail Finder 2) had been delayed until at least the end of the year. Thankfully, while visiting my LHS this afternoon, so that the owner could see the Capra, I discovered that, what was supposed to be my third crawler was sitting on the counter just calling my name, as if it was supposed to be mine...and, following the Captain's orders, I "made it so".

Wow - did that come in that hard case?

If so, that's a seriously nice touch!

Very cool vehicle, BTW...

First some "bad news", sleigh it's not really all-that-bad. I changed my mind on the Vanquish VS4-10 Pro, and decided to go work the SSD Trail King Pro. As soon as I'm back home (tomorrow), I'll be returning the VS4-10. As for my 'latest purchase(s).....

I don't have photos, as one just shipped yesterday, and the other entered the US (through customs) yesterday...but...thanks to yesterday's Black Friday sale, I got a great deal on an SSD Trail King Pro kit ($269), and I finally found a seller (in Indonesia) that had an available sealed Twin Hammers kit). The Trail King should be delivered on Tuesday, and I'm hoping for the Twin Hammers kit to be delivered by next weekend.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are my best friends and my bank account's worst enemy.

DeWalt Gyroscopic Screwdriver for RC assembly.




Losi Mini-T 2.0 because I love the OG Mini-T/Mini-Baja and it looked so cool that I had to have one.




Two sets (clear and grey) of Vanquish MR310 wheels and 20mm and 24mm 25T servo horns. I'm not liking these wheels as much as I thought I would in person so I'm not sure if I'm going to keep them.
There just isn't much depth at all to them. The plan was to get both on BF and then decide which looked best on my new truck and sell the set I didn't use.




HP x360 14" Chromebook. Chromebooks are my favorite web browsing device when I want to do a lot of typing. Touchscreen keyboards suck. And now I see that my POS iPhone is having camera issues AGAIN! Those black spots on the white computer are actually in my camera.

Nice grabs dudes ^^

@bmow I was close to getting a scx24, especially after seeing some upgrades roll out for it. Ended up snagging a vp chassis kit and VFD transmission for the first project of 2020.

Thanks! I almost bought the Vanquish chassis and VFD. I do think the Vanquish chassis is expensive for what it is, but it's a much better deal with 15% off.

Yeah, Iíve been reading some of the SCX24 build threads here and have seen some cool mods done to them. Looks like Hot Racing has some decent alum & brass upgrades.

Congrats on the VP chassis and VFD!

Excited to see your new 2020 project!

I picked up a bunch of vanquish and incision upgrades along with axial cvds for my rtr bomber. Also could resist getting a set of the suppershafty ss60 axle cases in black. Should result in near bulletproof axles for a u4 inspired build

Technically, there aren't actually my "latest purchases"...but, considering I've been gone from home for a week, and returned home today to find several boxes, I'll consider them as "today".

Received the following Vitavon Racing parts for my Axial Capra: flat black CF body panels, machined aluminum transmission housing, brass portal weights.

Received the following Killerbody parts:. LC70 hard body, moveable door & window lifter upgrade sets for LC70, cockpit set for LC70, RC4WD TF2 stainless steel body mount set for LC70, 14 LED set w/ control box for LC70, moveable hood upgrade set for LC70, & stainless steel modified air intake mesh "for any car" (ie. for LC70.

For $50, it is fine for my city driveway. It beats shoveling.

Dropped by work today, to pick up the minibus I'll need for my clients tomorrow, and found this wonderful box waiting for me. I opened it up, to be greeted by this:
Yes, I AM a happy camper.

I sold my Treadmill and ordered a rowing machine after a lot of research.

Digital orders just went out.


Case:






https://www.thermaltake.com/C_00003284.htm


Cooler for GFX:






https://www.alphacool.com/shop/gpu-w...olor-red-devil


Then i need a few parts and materials before i hack into it, cuz you know this boy cant have a toy just like the other boys have


The case on its own are 20 kilos, when i am done with it and shoveling hardware inside it, then it will probably be over 25 Kilos.


HEDT power


Plans:


Make glass look not like glass. ( too much work replacing it with something else )

Make case pressurized / make air flow thru it where it can do some good.

Make use of both passive and active radiators, passive pre-chill.

Make airflow rush over motherboard.

Remember to make it serviceable, something i often forget modding computers.
Maybe put it on wheels, while i do have a massive computer table i am planning to put this on the floor, but elevated a little so my roomba don't hit it.



With some restrictions, assumed airflow thru case will be 200 CFM, i am hoping i will not have to rise number this as more fans = more noise.
BUT ! i can go as high as 380 CFM just on the 2 front 200 mm fans, but i fear that might be a little loud. Fans will of course be temperature ( CPU ) controlled.



PS: NO RGB fans, but i might add a RGB strip or two to illuminate my good work.
