And I can't bring myself to cut up this pretty new body, so bought this one.

Ya not much crawl or rc time this year so far, lots of house/yard work. Was fun last year and all the large scale go-fasts would be great too, but not in the time schedule this year, maybe next year.

I will try to film this time, I planned to last year but it was hard with so much going on.

Yes Nate reconsider!
Yes.

Yes, driving one-handed remote, steering with chin, filming, difficult and time consuming.

Maybe next year thanks.

Well we had to ask, we'll put you down for next year.

I just read the description on the RPM A arms and they've got a nice little tag line in there playing off of Traxxas, "the toughest name in R/C – RPM!" lol Watch out for that lawsuit RPM!

If I could I would send you stuff to build just to see what you'd do to it keep up the great work brother!

NATE!!!! Proline....by.....the fire.... With those guys ^.......GO!!!!

Thanks Justin, I don't have video equipment but I sure someone there will so maybe we can get some vid for you.

As for the other project, it looks like a lot of room for these tires too but I'm not quite sure what you're doing.

Yes Nate reconsider!
Yes , it will hit at the very bottom of compression but it would do the same with the stock tires. The other truck is a project I'm trying to finish for PLBTF.

They and the upper arms are on the way!

A couple other projects I've been working on at the same time as this for arts show in May and June.











Helps pay for my RC addiction!!!

Sorry to hear that Nate but I totally understand! Interesting, I think RPM has been around almost as long as Traxxas, so just a pay on words.

Time for a little update on the body. I found someone to paint it, and I like the results!!






Out by the pond.

Damn, Codyboy...

that thing looks ready for just about anything - body has a sorta NHRA funnycar vibe, I like it!

Beautiful woodwork, as well.

You, Sir, are a renaissance man - multi-talented indeed!

Thanks durok, If you know me, you know I can't leave stock alone, even a go fast, 1/6th scale truck!!!
I probably spend 5-6 hours a day in my shop, one of the perks of being 70 and retired. The woodburning is therapy for me, when I was going through radiation and hormone therapy for my cancer it help make my life tolerable

Thanks Paul, still waiting for parts before it goes back together. Just a little update on the Noble, it is a very nice radio, that fits my small hands so nice. Easy to set up and program!! Love the battery setup, but do still need to test the range before I put it in this truck!

Hope you get a chance to see it at PLBTF, you and your XMAXX are coming? Right???
Ernie

Good to hear, I'm gonna hold you to that




I know there's more detail to see in the paint job you did Ernie, I want to get a close look at it in person.
