    Currently tinkering on a nitro solid axle mega truck like you see on the tgw vids. Lotta non traxxas parts on it though.

    Also wanna build a nitro rock bouncer. Kinda emulate the kyosho foxx I guess. But not setup like the formula offroaders that climb the insane silica hills overseas. I'm sure a lot of you have watched vids of that kind of gearhead stuff.

    Some of those guys must carry em around in a wheelbarrow if youve ever seen the vids. GEEZZZZZZZZ. its awesome.

    I have to think about this, Traxxas has done killed my list...

    I wanted a new 4-Tec... Got it (still on pre-order though)
    I wanted a solid axle scaler... In the works...
    I guess, the only two things that are left are a Traxxas safety lanyard for my work ID and waterproof remotes.

    Agreed! Having owned 8 different models to this point from 1/16 Teton to the X, Im going outside the box here:

    A Bublebee transformer camaro!!!! That actually transforms in to a walking robot!!!!

    EDIT: Or a Optimus Prime truck.

    Back in the box here: If Trx made a actual scale helicopter(not the little dual rotor mini), Id definitely need that in my collection as drones just dont have the presence like a big rotored real scale copter does. The only other thing on my list I dont have yet is a Trx boat. It will be the next rc I own.

    92.5 mph Rustler (Rusty 1.0 R.I.P.)
    78 mph on 4s/93 on 6s(Rusty 2.0)
    86.9 mph Stampede 4x4

    For me it was to have them build a scale solid axle truck. Well, they just did that so I guess I'm good now.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    I had been "Thinking" in reality "Dreaming" of getting a Scaler and making it look just like my Jeep TJ. I had been asking and researching about the different models for the past year and half and then Traxxas done and made up my mind.

    TRX-4 Pre Paid!! Dream come true. Once it gets here............

    HUGE magnetic shocks
    Titanium everything
    370kV 8 pole centrifuge-sped motor
    3-speed transmission
    Servos everywhere for the wing, ride height (80+mph, and it lowers itself..), etc...
    Gigantic 10-inch tires
    Wireless Motor Charging.. just like you wirelessly charge a phone..
    3-axis gyro to bend around those corners..
    All the drag settings
    Anti-wheelie gyro
    No Body Clips
    Top speed? 150mph.
    ESC with a touchscreen on it.
    Magnetic Bearings, becuase ball bearings aren't enough..

    And many more...

    Old Navy injury came back to haunt me... had 4 different procedures done, it was pretty tore up... Re-injured it helping my son carry an engine ti gi ti the machine shop.
    The build isn't complicated with the right parts, it will be light and strong and a real performer... Basically a tall Truggy with a 2 speed...
    typing with 1 hand right now..

    Well, thank you for your service, and I'm sorry that its acting up.

    I feel your pain with the one handed typing. I broke my left arm last February and was in a full arm plaster cast for about 4 months.
