Even if the Hummer is a highlight of the collection, I still love the appearance of my black beauty

All the chassis are Traxxas TRX-4/6, the Hummer body is actually sitting on the original Defender body that I bought first of them. I need to say that I only got three chassis, all of them upgraded, but the family photo is photoshopped to make it look like all of them got each chassis, sorry for the trickery..

Ah, you surely picked one of the highlights of Norway to visit, especially when you dont have much time the route you set up for sure gave a lot of views pr hour visited I guess. But you need to come back, you've just had a tiny little glimpse of what my magnificent country has to offer.. I know a lot of people dreams about visiting the states(myself included), but spending time in my home country is my favorite thing to do at vacations..
So give me a call when you plan to revisit, I'll give you lots of good hints about places to visit.
I could see why you would spend your holidays there. I would likely do the same. Hope to get back again, perhaps get further north next time.

So this morning I packed my Audi full of parts and bodies that fits the first Defender of mine.
I was just about to head out to a guy that got an upgraded Trophy flux buggy he wanted to trade me for the trx-4..
But just as I was sitting in the car on my way to leave, I just reversed the Audi back to its place and put the trx-4 back in to the shed...

I just couldn't give it away, not yet at least..

Yesterday I practically changed my mind..
Since I couldn't get myself to sell the Defenders I found out it was easier to give them away.. :p
So I did..! At least almost, he got to pay for a set of beadlocks and the pit bull rock beast 1.9. But the chassis and the bodies with lots of extra stuff he got for free..
That way at least he cant complain about the deal

I hope he'll fall for the crawling hobby the same way I did with that chassis, there's a lot of fun left in that one!
I got the Sport and 6x6 to play with, so I dont suffer from this at all

And even better, I bought an old e-maxx from a friend of mine just to have something to bash with if I feel bored..

Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the TRX6 with new wheels.
But until then I posted this short clip to YouTube tonight showing how easy the Noble is, I love that transmitter.

It isnt actually. It does fit in the original receiver box, but it's tight..
So I'm making a new box soon, going to 3D-print a new one that takes use of the space available on that side of the car..

Ok, here we go
Just before the holidays six of these tyres did show up at the PO

During christmas even the rims came knocking on the door..

So, the pairing of 2.2" SSD and ProLine Flat Irons was up

I even got the Flysky Noble NB-4 up and running on all of my cars now..

Just love this setup

And here's some pictures of the truck with the wheels mounted on. I think it didn't come out too bad. I actually like the bronze color very much!

It wants to go out and play in the snow..

Wheels looking good on that sick puppy!

That tx/ex combo you picked up looks pretty nifty.

Thanks Topher, yeah that setup is pretty awesome. Off course it is a very egoistic setup, now I cant just let a friend drive the cars I dont drive myself, but how often is that a problem..? From now on, never.. hehe

Yeah, I might have to take it out tomorrow to make some more pictures, because today another set of wheels arrived today. And I cant decide on wich one of them will be my favorite..
What do you think? Number one

Or number two?

Just a few pictures in better light..












After driving it a little in the sunshine today I just cant decide on a favorite.. So I'll just have to keep both sets and go hunting for another set of tires for one of them..

How many volts can those micro servos take?
