Had my Telluride out for the first real use since I took those dam pictures above in 2016, ran great and in some situations outwheeled my friend's box stock Ridgecrest, but I found that out it needs a new battery...............


I'd like to go to the dam again, just won't be able to go anytime soon, it's a wee bit under water right now and it looks like near constant rain for the last couple and next week.

I'm not sure what the hell is going on here, don't have this issue on the Traxxas or other forums, just here and I've tried downloading smaller pics.

Edit, went Gold Star and put the pics on here that way instead!

The friend I went crawling/bashing with just posted this on his Instagram. Not much, just a little water crossing with my Telluride and his Ridgecrest.

Watched that clip on Instagram. Cool to see some old relics in action. Those are two of my favorite legacy RC’s. I have a painted Ridgecrest body in a box, but need to rebuild the AX10 chassis I bought for it. Also have a shoebox of upgrades for a Telluride I found on eBay last December. I was actually going to build one from scratch, having bought all the parts I needed off ebay, but couldn’t pass up a lightly used, unmodified, stock model, either.

Thanks, we had a great time that night as well as this past Friday night with are more....go fast stuff and a couple former coworkers of his, watch Dave's account that footage......there was some mayhem We were talking about going to a different spot to go crawling this upcoming friday. I'll bet if he just gets a good set of tires and a better servo, that truck would work much better.

If you want to get your Telluride and Ridgecrest set up, I would start with the grippiest "all terrain" type SCT tires on the Telluride you can find, which were the M3 Trencher SCTs that it still has and soft SCT foams from HPI (not sure if those can still be had), leave the shocks alone unless you want to try the Maxx X-Long shafts in the front shocks like I did. For the Ridgecrest, I'd go over who's running what on here and how their rigs are set up, not familiar with what can be done there.

Better tires, and mounted on metal beadlocks, for Daveís Ridgecrest!

I have a set of Proline Super Swamper SCT tires and beadlocks for my Telluride, and a slew of other upgrades, but who knows if & when Iíll get around to it. Iíve mostly just ran my stock Telly like a slow basher, around my driveway and yard. I did take it to state-managed land where there were some dirt/gravel roads and trails, but the terrain was a little overwhelming for its size. Needed a Summit!

Iíve bookmarked loads of threads for the Ridgecrest, in case I need additional tips, but, since Iím a mostly recreational RCíer, Iíll probably not be overly focused on performance. My AX10 is going to need quite a bit of work to get rolling again, but, when it does, it should be good, and I plan on making a special trip up to a crawl spot, well-known for hosting comps, to get some good pics and video footage.

Dave and I were talking about taking the crawlers out again next Friday after work, only to a different spot we've both crawled at before, just not together. Going to try and take my Ascender, so long as it works, I found the battery, "battery in" lead on the ESC (they all but left the motor leads alone?!), and Servo leads all chewed on by some mice that have taken up residence here. I think we need a cat and/or a some sort of Terrier..............
