I totally agree about the wheels.. The only thin I dont love about them is that they are made of plastic.. I might have to buy the expensive RC4WD-wheels in the future.. It would've been cheaper to buy them at the beginning instead of trying out all these other wheels.. But again, the trying and failing is fun

I'll check out your youtube-channel

Went for a ride in the backyard with the Hummer today, and as you know I cant drive a single meter without taking a lot of pictures..
Today was no exception

Another batch..



I also remembered to put on a sticker of the Punisher on the roof.. What you think about it, is it cool or is it too much..?

Also there's something to me about autumn foliage and red barns. Makes for some great photos... either as a background or subject. Jealous of you guys that actually get to experience fall. Summer slams into winter here.. and then spring and fall just meander arbitrarily lol.

Yeah, on pictures it looks very good with all those colors, and it gives us a heads-up on that we need to get things sorted out before the snow comes in and cover all the sh*t you got lying around..
This last week we've had a very hot week, I've never had 25 degrees celsius in october before, so thats a new experience..

Awesome photography of a one of a kind build. Very unique Defender. Not sure Id have the courage to cut mine up. Youve done amazing work on it too. Keep it coming!

Did wipe off som dust of the Defender yesterday and had a blast with a friend of mine with a Bronco.
OMG I love this truck, and the Proline SuperSwamper tires performed way over my expectations.. Hope you enjoy the film, I also got some pictures coming

Thank you indybama
Yeah, it's truly beautiful around here. And this isn't even one of the attractive places to go, but for scale/crawling it's just perfect

Ive been lookin for a place like that around here where i live. The closest ive found is 45 min drive, so i dont go to often. But ive found a few spots i wanna check out. I usually go out behind the concrete plant i work at, but theres alot of loose dirt, so not to good for crawlin lol

I guess I'm a bit more lucky than you then, around here I dont need to walk 5mins to get to good grounds.

BTW: I've reuploaded the film, the only difference is that this time I added a few comments(text). Would you be kind and watch that one too and check how you like it best, with or without the commentarys? Here's the link:

Edit:
Ah, crap.. I forgot to edit the two first texts, they look very... not good.. Sorry for that..!

Tiny update, but I think this might actually do much about the performance on the Defender. Not that I'm not impressed allready by its performance, but I guess this will make it even better..!
So I got this brass mount for the front servo a loooong time ago, but I've never gotten to move the servo to the mount.. And after watching a buddy doing that I wasn't sure if it was worth the struggle.. So I've just left it there.. But there is a lot of empty real estate just housing air there, isn't it..?

So I sat down one evening with Fusion 360 and the calipper making some drawings.. And as the drawing came together I decided to make it real, so here you go. 625gr of brass!

I guess I could've made it even quite a bit bigger also, but this just fits perfect right there!

Pleeeenty of room!!


So what do you think, will it make a big difference?

Even with the weight being sprung I think you will see a big performance increase on your climbing ability. Side hill and descents will take a hit. There is always a trade off. I had a bunch of steel plates I made up to sit where your mount is on my truck when I first got it and it was a world of difference. I ended up buying a mount like yours and I did move my servo onto it. It was easy as pie, especially after I flipped the receiver box so I didn't need to get an extension. Just had to reverse the steering throw on the transmitter once all was said and done.

Without testing it yet, I guess it may be a little too much weight. But thats the beauty of this, I can just drill holes in the brass until I reach a level of weight that feels right..
And I will of course drill holes in the top to start with to keep as much weight as I want down low.
