That's funny right there. I'm a bit surprised the tube didn't hold up, maybe the punisher tubes are vastly different than the Axial wild boar shafts. I have had good luck with those, same pair on the FJ since the day it was born. The rear one is pretty twisted, but still working perfectly.

Like I said yesterday, I will come out if it isn't raining. I tore the FJ apart for some preventative maintenance after our run Sunday and it isn't up and running yet so I brought my other scaler to work today. My office is about 10, maybe 15 minutes away so I should be there just after 5. I will try to scoot out a few minutes early too.

What kind of rig is it your bringing in place of the honcho? Im buying a honcho from one of my buddies. Complete truck w/ radio and batteries for 175.00 Its hard to beat that.

I brought my homebrew truggy. I built it before I ever got my hands on a SCX-10 or anything like it. This guy is more about performance and less about looks, compared to the FJ. I'd say its near the performance of a honcho...except its got a big ol nasty V8 compared to the honcho's V6...if you catch my drift.

This body is a spare, normally it is blue. Threw the digicam on there for fun.

Yea that was my thoughts exactly. I'd be down to go out tomorrow or Friday though, weather should be better.

Next week we'll start DST, so more opportunities to get out on week nights before dark.

I've been working on my rigs. I'm heading to Bahrain friday for three months then retire thank God. Then maybe I can get back out there again.
