Yeah, kind of sucks. Couldn't believe the temp drop when I walked into the draw where the falls were. Had to be a 15deg temp drop for sure. Going to need about 2-3" of rain and a few days in the 60's before that ice melts. Lots of tree cover in that draw. All good though, as I won't have my rig up until the end of the month, lol.

Do you all get together regularly? I am in Madison and have been looking to do some organized crawling. At the least it would just be fun to meet up with others and at least go out at the same time.

Let me know if there is an group or anything along those lines that I should be contacting or watching for get-togethers.

Thank you

First time out with the Cherokee. Took it to Cato Falls and really had a blast! Definitely enough stuff there to have a few hours of fun. Quite impressed at how much the stock Dingo could attack and overcome! Great first build! Can't wait to get back there with a group next time!

RC fishunt, how do you like your R1? I wanna buy one, as I love my sawback. I figure buying the R1 would be a nice addition to my collection... I heard it's a PITA to work though. Also, 2s batteries don't exactly fit from the looks of it..

Hey Brian I love it. There are a few mos guys do to comp but I like mine just the way it comes. Full size 2 cells do not fit. I bought a few venom 2200 2 cells for it. They are perfect because they don't add alot of weight that most end up compensating buy adding lots of weight in other areas. Also some guys put the battery on the front axle to run a full size battery. I don't care for the look of all that crazy stuff.

I think it works great. I think I have a video that I'll up load for you

I also read that the drive shafts are weak, mine are holding up fine. I am going to get rid of the losi ESC and hpi motor and upgrade to a tekin fxr and a 35 turn motor. Maybe the 45 turn. Only thing I don't like about the losi setup is the brake drag only works when you are going forward.

I'd want my battery inside the cage, not a fan of battery on link/ axle, or sticking out for that matter. Looks good though! how do you like the portal axles?

The portal asked work great. Especial for stair step type situations. Lots of clearance
