Good time yesterday, good crawling and climbing. Pulled the video together:

I left in the Johnny Bench impersonation.

Ahhahaa!! I know man.. Camera doesn't give those hills justice. There's another 6 feet past the camera on the two big slopes. We should've taken camera on the track Blue dug out. That dirt was flying near the top.

We will have to mount the go pro on a truck to get the idea of how crazy they are!

I will make sure my camera is charged and mounted inside the Bomber for the next run. Those hills were a blast to climb last weekend.

Well, got my Wraith kit built, just kinda tweeking the electronics, etc... Took it to Davisburg, where the plastic servo horn lasted about 5 minutes! Then today to "Area 51" for a little lunchtime test and tune... Dave(Headshot)- remember when you said "no challenge"? Holy shit- this thing is a juggernaut! It rolls over everything! But with a HH 13T and a 3s it's stoopid fun!

Awesome, The Wraiths are a ton of fun. I managed a 2nd place with my bomber last week.

Tomorrow I am picking up an SCX10 to start a truly scale build.

When are you guys planning on getting together again?

I'm traveling on business through the 23rd. Lookin forward to getting out again. Fumey that wraith sounds beastly. Got a feeling I might have to gas the scx10 more, like CC01 style.

You installed a new grub screw? You didn't laser weld an iridium core pin and electro plate the assembly with boron carbide to a 3000 knoop scale?

Looking forward to seeing it run man. You get the CC01 back running?
