second time ive busted the front bumper of timmy... i think i did it at foster beach and just now noticed.

serves me right... ive been meanin to beef up that area to keep this from happening. tricky spot to braze without getting the other side of the tube too hot.

Slash 4x4's need mamba monsters. Really everything needs a mamba monster on 6s. I think I'm brain washed from hobby town.

nope.

proline pro-specs with traxxas springs.

i need to change pistons in them and also the rear d8s. with 30wt frt and 30wt rear the front still needs more dampening and the rear needs less. i could just change shock oils but i dont have any 20wt or 45wt, but i got umpteen bottles of 30wt.

RPP has 15% off today.
I need MIP's for the Ascender... trying to decide if I order the set from RPP or just the oddball hubs direct from MIP and try to piece them together with what I already have.
