Was fun to hang today... I look forward to hanging out on 9/18... To anyone just reading the thread... come run with us on 9/18 at the sanford boat doc.

There is enough space to crawl, bash, scale run.....

Dont forget when you get the chance to post the "smoking Motor Pics" !

Superbleeder I have a bunch of 2s 4000 mah LiPo batteries. You are more then welcome to use them next weekend. I'm really looking forward to it, should be a lot of fun. I'll have my RC4WD motors in by then as well so it should be fun. Need to get the suspension fine tuned on the Dingo , I might put it back down to like 12" WB so I can run my Dingo body since the New Bright JK is still under construction. Plus I can lower the body down a little and not be so top heavy. Anyways, next weekend should be great, and the best part is we can go there rain or shine since it's completely covered.

Like this one?


This one is a bit better:


There are a ton more in the album. As usual, I have 14MP copies of all of them.

Thanks, but watching you guys made me miss the precise control of my ax10 compared to the brutality of my summit.... I may need to get another dedicated crawler...

This picture you took looks good... Thank you!

I actually just stopped by a local hobby shop today and picked up a pair of Traxxas 8.4v 7 cell hump packs. I need to have more than one battery anyway

The 8.4v should give a little extra punch, and the 3300mah should give me plenty of runtime, lol. I just need to solder on the female Dean's that I picked up as well. Plus, they fit rather nicely in the rig!





BUT, my stupid self didn't think about the fact that I only have a 7.2v charger... so I have to try and get ahold of an 8.4v charger by Thursday so I can solder on a Dean's so I can have both packs charged by Saturday. The problem with that is that I get off work too late to make it to the hobby shop before they close... so I'm pretty much stuck to ordering one online, and HOPEFULLY I can find one that grantees me Wednesday or Thursday delivery... At latest, I can have one come in Friday and then just take the charger and my soldering iron with me when I come to Casselberry Friday afternoon, and just solder the Dean's on Friday night.

@superbleeder when you come down you are trying my LiPos. And I think I have a 3300 6s NiMh you can have, fairly new. I had it but went to LiPos and havent looked back.

lol, okay. The stock AE-2 Axial ESC I'm still running has a lipo cut-off and can run 2s (although I know some run 3s in them, I wouldn't risk it right now myself), so it wouldn't cause any harm to your batteries or my rig.
