    Well in my spare time I decided to build a ramp so this is how it turned out. Had to use scrap wood laying around the shop, but I don't think that it turned out too bad.





    Had fun for a little while then had a bearing go out in one of my rear axle carriers.


    Got it fixed by taking the aluminum axle carriers and bearings off my 2wd pede and installed them onto the 4x4.

    Here is a link to the video. This will also show what may have led to my bearing failure.

    Nice Jumps and backflips. Are you still running stock shocks and springs?

    It's decent. They are talking about getting rid of it and building a new one. It was hot when we got here Temps used to be around 133 but now that it's the cold season Temps get to 50 at night and about 85-90 during the day. My Temps were getting up up to 200 at times when outside Temps were 133.

    Great ramp and nice video. That thing gets some hang time and I don't even think you are at more than 30-40% throttle.

    Yeah I know it is. Yeah I run fans since I have a MMP esc and I am running a CC blower fan on the motor. I usually run my truck in the morning at work or after work. Never really in the heat of the day.

    Thanks and yeah it does get some hang time. No I never went over half throttle. Try my best not to break things when possible.
