Man...my head hurt for 10 minutes after banging it on that branch.

I have one little detail bit that I'll probably add to the rig tomorrow.

Probably won't last long, but it'll look cool while it lasts.

Yeah.

The steering servo is shot too.

Today's tally:

1 ring and pinion
1 servo
1 lost wheel nut
400 or so abused and molested rocks



Ralph enjoys a bit of rock racing.

More shots from today.

Wanted to jump this little rock, got high centered.


"Winch" is installed.








Made it back to the parking lot with three wheels, a crunchy front servo and a blown rear diff. All in a day's work.

The blown diff thing, yeah. They were even shimmed!

The blown servo thing isn't recurring, though.

The Futaba S3004 lasted over a year. The Hitec 645MG didn't last a day.

Not really.

I've never had luck with the 645MGs.

I guess you & hi-tech just don't mix.

I've never had problems with 645's.
