Not sure how many of you follow the Rubithon thread on MUD but Now on top of everything I need to finish some final tweaks on my latest RC Crawler as General Sherman is putting together an RC Rock Crawl on Saturday somewhere near Rubicon Springs. My crawler has the latest greatest stuff while I've been into RC for a long time this is my first attempt at an electric Comp Crawler. Fun little beast for sure. On it I need too....

Finish trimming and detailing the body
rework the driveshafts so they don't twist out
fine tune/program the ESC and get some test rock time
wrap the antenna and secure it under the body
abuse it and discover weak links and stock my RC tool box with spare parts
Make a miniture Rising Sun sticker to represent the club

That would not be very competitive unless you dumped a bunch of cash into it! Here is a great deal on an ax-10! Already has a OK ESC and decent motor+ battery pack servos and radio. http://cgi.ebay.com/Axial-AX-10-Scor...QQcmdZViewItem

My To Do list is getting longer, which ain't good. Gotta work through some ball joint and suspension issues this week and get this thing into final alignment. This is a huge stumbling block in my mind right now, I've been trying to get this suspension dialed in for 5 weeks now and it's not working out well. Huge problem. I had it pretty stable a week or two ago, but checking the ball joints turned out to be a pretty smart thing since they do seem to be toast and probably were unsafe.

Go to doctor and have Microdiscectomy done or Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery. Heal in 10 days and finish all the work on the 4Runner and tow truck................Should be doable.........

Well a friend of mine who wrecked his truck last year and since has replaced it, cut his twine (sp?) Heat exchanger out of his old truck and is sending it to me. Robbie and Christo will recogonize this as Nicks old Turbo'd truck.

He said it will be a pain to install because of the routing of the hoses.

So I may have an onboard shower
