Can I cheat and use red CF stick on stuff!? Lol..

I'm not sure the route I'm going yet.. Hang it on the wall with the white one, build it, trade it, sell it... Decision's decision's.....

I know where to get blue and also silver/white cf too. It's relatively cheap too. And, you can cut it with scissors.

It's all a cover up man! ;) It's all in how you word it.. Lol..

It's also 2 mini's with one purpose.. Comp!

If I build it (and my "son's" sporty) as if I was going to comp with it, I Always have a backup!
This rig has been my baby, for many years now, as is my daughter..
It will make her happy and I'm happy cause it's running again...

So far..


Things to do at home, for artr..
Mount shocks, find a rear axle pinion, and mount drive shafts.

Things to do for RTR..
Get a HH BR mini and a bec wired up and swap over the Airtronics MX-V and RX, from my son's sporty..

Moving on.. Needs to be RTR, Tomorrow!


Maybe some of the old timers will know about this motor!?

It's a custom, handwound, 27t motor, from motorman1600..

Had it for a few yrs now.. First time it's been mounted, since he built it for me..

Looks like your "back up" rig might become your #1!!! Your kinda making me want to build a 1.9 now. My daughter is 3 1/2 now and she actually loves rc so this might be a great way to get her going and I would have a rig for me to comp at the same time!! Win Win for everyone!!!!

as you are rebuilding it, all the effort, the good times, the memories of that time, come upon you in a rush.
pretty much what happens when we hear certain songs, the memories they invoke.


means you are human.
