Wow, broad category.

Here is my newest project, A Fender Fat Start, going to take a while to find all the parts.

Going to use:

- TUSQ XL nut
- Looking for a used Lake Placid Blue (preferred) Fender Standard Stratocaster to use as a body and neck doaner

- Sperzel Locking 6-In-Line Tuners Satin Chrome
- Fender Vintage Tremolo

Ok, listed in chronological order. But, I am like Rick in that most of what I build, I sell.

RC4WD Gelande D90 with extensive Styrene work and my first tube work



RC4WD Timberwolf that Crawlhog also owned for a while



The US Navy Veteran Berg



My first Hilux build on an SCX10


My second Honcho



My R1, bought built then I did a full rebuild



Lancer SF03Ra Rally Car


XR10



My favorite build and still the best runner I had, the JK Brute with a huge amount of Styrene work and tube work




Mississippi Hunting Truck Tribute Build, scratch built drop bed, opening tailgate and dog crate



My Class 1 Hilux on an SCX10, still a work in progress, brushless and rear leafs



My Wraith



I also own or owned a couple well known trucks but I had no hand in building them.

And my current Silver Bullet Taco



And I have a 6X6 Mog project that is just a box of parts and a bunch of bar and tube stock

Maybe this can go in the builds thread too..

I built some wraith steering stuff, drag link, tie rod... Made a set for my brother so, I made extra's for the local boys. I know Neil has his name on a set so far so, there is 5 sets still available. Pm me for more info.

I based these off of my vanquish titanium stuff..so, they are similar to that.
used revo m4 rod ends.

.250" 303 solid stainless steel
M4 male threaded ends
backside clearanced .04" for diff covers
each one is hand bent




I dont know why in that picture the threads look rusty.. they are not. These dont rust!
cell phone pics sucks.. what can I say?

My D90 has been found. BigBoy recently got it from Ghost. White Landies, 1.55 tires and a light abr look to be the only difference.

my old pic host died about a year ago that had all my projects and stuff...

i have a entire bedroom full of vintage rc10 stuff. these are just my rollers...


timmy tintop





the only pic i have of my transam audio install. the actual audio components were about 25% of the install, the sound dampening and wiring was way more intense...

this is what i have to go through to change a damn brake light bulb...

Nice 1:1. I sold mine, it was getting to hard on the back and hips driving it, plus the 10MPG on the why sucked.

The Green one was my wife's and the Red one was mine.




And my other car was

Third one out


Since I commissioned her, that counts as a build, right?

The only problem I see there is that it is going to run Windows. Kind of like building a Ferrari and putting a Yugo motor in it.

Mac's can't touch PC's when it come's to processing speeds...
My current work workstation is a Quad Core 2.83GHz with 24GB of ram and 256MB of video card ram. My new machine will be faster

And with OS X, you could do the same work on the same CPU with half the memory. I have a Mac with an i5 2.7GHz, 8GB and AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB video card. I run video import and compiles in 2 hours that takes my i5 PC with 8GB over 10 hours. And when I absolutely have to (Castle Link and Tekin Hotwire), I just hit a set of keys and open up a Windows 7 session.

Lol, I love these King Bill vs King Steve discussions. All a matter of choice, but we are all pretty fixed in our ways. I will say I was a Windows guy for awhile. I have an MCSE +I but got so fed up with viruses and anti virus software, patches, quick fixes, lack of backward compatibility and the Re-boot daily (now weekly I guess) that I just walked away. Oh yeah, did I mention that I am a UNIX Engineer? Lol.

I actually don't feel any loyalty towards either. I'd gladly UNIX/LINUX if my software ran on it... or a Mac for that matter.
Autodesk develops the programs on PC's then they port them over to Macs... often leaving the program incomplete and/or buggy.

We see that a lot and visa-versa some. If SUN had followed through with their Looking Glass desktop project, that is all I would run, but like many of their ideas, Scott McNally nipped it in the bud. Now that Oracle has them, no free ware will be forth coming. Freeware does't help Larry Ellison buy a new yacht.
