    That's perfect tons of different lines,plus when driver error occurs for me sometimes it's a bit of a hike.I like trailing through the forest just as much.
    This truck makes it's own trails when needed.lol

    No issues to report, just having fun running my rigs

    The axles are not available yet, keep tuned to their site for info.

    The trenchers are the regular 40 series (3.8") not the trencher X`s. They are mounted on Tech 5 zero offset wheels

Its a rust inhibitor because it leaves that waxy film so air and water can't get to the metal so apparently it works as a good waterproofer.

    I want to waterproof my Castle MMP but before I do, I'm going to test that FF on some dollar store electronics--just spray on, wait a bit, then dunk in water and see what happens! I'll let you know the results!
    I been running boats for years and corrosion x works wonders. I even know people that dunked esc in salt water that were soaked with x prior to the dunk. With a quick spray after the dunk they were fine. It's good for cleaning bearings as well along with hundreds of other uses. Definitely give it a shot.

    I use CX as well... it has never failed to protect!
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Corrosion X may be the reason that my fully immersed Mamba Monster survived.

    Launched my MT4 off a 14' tall dirt mound... into a 4' deep puddle. It was deceiving. lol
    Still ran afterwards... and still running today.

    Those are the stories we need to hear! I have not tried the CX yet... But I understand how the mineral oil coating works. Once dried properly it should leave a protective hardened coating too, just very thin. Which could be desirable for ceritan application. Such as ones where a thick plastidip or LET may leave to much substance. The CX is probably better for heat reasons too.

    There is also a product made by 3m its a epoxy potting compound called dp270 and it works great. It's a two part mix that is crystal clear clear exactly the same properties of what is used on the castle sv3. I have coated everything from servos, rx, esc, and all other electrical devices. I saw pretty much no change in temps on any of the electronic that I have done. I have been testing this stuff for years on all my boats and cars/trucks. My boats pull almost 500 peak amps and 15 k watts at 115 plus mph. Even these these electronics survive and data logging shows no noticable increase in temps.

    Yeah buddy its some good stuff the only negative thing is that if you run really high end controllers such as schulze, mgm, yge and so on repairs if ever needed become very hard to do. I never experienced any problems with land and air electronic components only my boat stuff because its punished 20 times harder so a smoked fet or something similar is always possible with them.

    I'm just looking back at those re-assembled pics, hard to believe its almost a year old. This girl looks young for her age

    Its a shame I'm going to have to store it or sell it soon since Im moving to a large city in a small apartment lol I will just not have the area to run it or work on it. Real Pity, especially since I Just finished the build a month or so ago. But I gotta go where the work is. So RC plans might be put on hold for a while.

    Hopefully I`ll keep it, but with the big move coming and nowhere to put it, I`d have to pay to store it. I'm leaving town due to shortage of work in my field. Not sure if storing it is feasible yet. Still working out the details of the move, but don't be surprised if one day you see it up on the bay.

    NA`s Summit Build

    Its doable. You just gotta take it apart a bit and pack it smart and tight. You can fit all you 'really' need in a large duffel bag or Rubbermaid container. I don't get too much wrenching time because of my living accomodations, but when I get her out...its so rewarding. Even with all the hardships of cleaning it in the kitchen sink or bathtub...I don't think I could without. Its hard, but doable. You'll miss it if you don't keep it.

    NA`s Summit Build

    Please dont sell it you came to far with it. Its one of the most well planned and built summit I saw in a while. Trust me I did the same thing you are contiplating and it was the word mistakr I ever had made. I recently spent triple to replace my fleet.

    I agree. Dont sell it. Out of all the RC's I have collected over the years, the Summit would be the one I would have to keep.

    If I do keep it, it could do 3 years in isolation.

    That's a harsh sentence to a Summit this nice, Id almost feel bad.

    Not sure it would ever forgive me when it got out.
