Lol

I remember those.... Often so many hours in hand crafting a body, they were afraid to wreck it.

Advantage I have, is this is just a toy body and I drive it like a toy grade body.... however I do cringe when I roll it down an embankment....

I don't see it as just a "toy body" with all you've done to it, but I get what you're saying. My kids drive all the time maybe I should post up the pics I take of them. I just don't have the time to build, drive and repair two crawlers. I would rather keep their machines running and have them stay interested, if that makes any sense?.. One day soonish I will have two built in people to run with...That is until they start chasing girls, by thenI can drive my trucks I guess... Not that I want to fast forward them being little!...

Wow!!.. awesome scenery. Nice places to crawl, that's for sure. I will post some pics soon. I will probably start a thread here in the 2.2 section as that's what they run. They drive too "inelegantly" to finesse 1.9 rigs around lol.

Carnage report!

While the rig preformed better than any previous rig I have built I had issues on the trail. I really was not easy on the rig.



#1) My 8 year old HH Brxl has started "surging" at low throttle settings and low load conditions, causing the truck to lurch and buck when running down the trail esp. downhill and on flat terrain.

#2) I am not geared anywhere near low enough for climbing like I did yesterday. Near the top of the mountain, I could smell the hot motor.

#3) I really need some harder body panels.... Examples below....

I glued her back up, E6000 and some thin aluminum backers to reinforce the fender areas. Hopefully that will keep the body from cracking in hat area again.... Now she has battle scars.
