^^that Orlandoo (one on the left) is still the coolest I’ve seen so far IMO. It’s the one that makes me want one. I’m still on the fence about it.

more fun today.... i filled the track up with coffee, i wanted the water darker After all, it is a coffee table

only thing,,, the waterfall made it bubble like crazy...

notmally the pump is run off a 2s lipo and today i had it going from a 12v powersuppy, the excessive flow might of contributed to the bubbles... IDK?

Your death race style car reminds me of the Mighty Car Mods S15.

Wow! Love the coffee table crawler setup. Simple, but effective. Very cool.

Yay.... it's finished,, well for now, ive been tweaking the suspension and figured out a new way to attach the wheels (more on that later). So far I'm really impressed, the silver one can easily go places the yellow one can't.

here is a video before tweaking the suspension and cutting the wheel arches out

here are some more testing videos of the 6x6.... the trailers suspension is a bit stiff when empty so I plan to re visit that someday

Been mulling over the Orlandoo for a while...do you like the F150 more or the Wrangler?

ummm.... im a way.... my Jeep performs better than my Yellow Ford... but IDK, the ford is more fun, u can put things in the back and its long wheelbase and larger pumpkins makes trailing very challenging.

one thing to consider, These are more of a scale trail truck than a crawler, and with that both SWB and LWB have their advantages. soo... in a way id go with what ever one you like the look of...

also... there is a new Mitsubishi Pajero that looks really good.. im keen to get one to add to the collection

oh, just to add, on scale tracks u can crawl with the orlandoos... but in the real world they struggle, a small grain of dirt it like driving on marbles. its soooooo hard to get traction.

but thats the joy of 1/35 ... its like driving a car in a giant's world... a 2mm real world pebble scales to a 70mm rock
say in one of the videos I drive the 6x6 over some driveway blue gravel... in real life that would be like driving over 2 foot rocks!!!! who drives a 18 wheeler over 1-3ft rocks lol
so when ya scale it down like that... for their scale they are very capable
