Default Another Venture build by this newb

Well like many I was really into this truck when it was announced. Then it didn't show up and I doubted it ever would, then it did but I wanted the grey one and never saw it in stock anywhere. I browsed on here and noted that a used one may appear and sure enough on Ebay a month or so ago I found this grey one from someone who claimed to have lost the charger and never really driven it. Sure enough it showed up with a battery and no charger, no manual or anything just a truck with a battery and radio. I ordered a manual and played around until the battery died then I swapped it over to deans and 3s and played a bit but determined a new servo was in order. I put a reefs 555 in it and plan to see how it really does on a trip to New Orleans this week/end. Anyway, as per my usual I am documenting the progress of this truck here and hope to learn a bit from you all as well. I have high hopes that HPI parts will start to show up but I plan to look into the ascender mods for the front axles in the mean time as well as some wheels and tires and a battery relocate mod the bowhouse setup looks good. any input is more than welcome and I look forward to learning more about the HPI world separate from the axial world i have been living in.

Where do you plan on crawling at in New Orleans? There maybe some good crawl spots at a couple of downtown hotel courtyards.

Itís a scientific fact that time moves faster in the Big Easy than CO.

Check the regional section, too.

Courtyard is probably exactly where I'll be. Local Facebook group said something about getting together Saturday night in a park. Mostly I just need something to do while I'm up early or if we end up driving to visit her family a few hours away. Also Southwest allows lots of checked bags and carry on so why not

Well I could potentially crawl the banks of the MS River. About 4 blocks away the rocky shoreline will have tons of holes for the tires to fall in
