Glad to see an R1 thread still kicking. LOVE those skins, they absolutely look the part!

I just OD modded my front axle (with Sawback gears) - just messing around down in the shop it feels much more planted. Highly recommended mod.

Thanks osrc i like the skins to
I've been considering the OD mod for some time but since i play around in comps with this rig and the rules state no OD i have hesitated a bit on this one but what they don't know won't hurt i guess lol

Speaking of which i did another comp on the weekend i still got beat but it ran ok until i lost a wheel on the 3rd course lol

I still cant get the transition shocks to perform how i want and the links def need to be extended but otherwise it was a lot of fun to drive compared to last time
I didn't take many pics but I'll post some up later

My sons scx smoked the course and every one was impressed at how well a 7 yr old got around it....proud dad



Im off on a holiday this weekend so not much will happen with my rigs for a couple of weeks but ill get back into it when i get home

Ok so had a comp on the weekend and it didn't go well........... again lol
I was getting through gate 5 or 6 on the first course nothing over difficult no binding just cruising over a rock (as you do) and the front left axle snapped (known weak point in these things but im not brushless yet so i was a little puzzled) thought I would push on in 3wd but fate had other ideas, not 10 seconds later the rear drive shaft snapped....... bugger DNF on all 3 stages. I don't have spares for this problem yet.

Since I've had to pull it all down to fix the broken parts i figured now would be a good time to address some other issues as well
Started on making longer links. For the moment I have used my lower links as the uppers and made some new links out of allthread to get the wheel base right

Total increase of around 20mm but I'm thinking of going further
