    I wish, but unfortunately, no.

    Just a few minor tweaks to do before I consider myself somewhat "done."
    Might take a while... I can usually mod things at home, but finding time to properly run and test is tough.

    Been tweaking on this thing since November and still have yet to run a full pack through it!
    Got to get it dirty, scratched, and dinged up... I didn't build it to be a shelf queen!

    Looks good, hopefully it will not heat to much to melt the plastic off. Like the paint job

    Jezza:
    The front bottom corners are fairly open so plenty of air can enter the body.
    If it gets damaged, so what... we drink plenty of water!

    He squeegie, so when you flex one arm does the other follow with th say bar?
    I installed the black, harder bar and still had no effects on different posistions you had linked to me, I must be doing somthing wrong, I saw a viedo of someone who manualy moved one arm and the other would lift a bit to show how the say bar worked.

    Going to re-read also the support

    Swaybars:

    Guys... are you tightening the screws too tight? The ones on the chassis. Tighten them down all the way, then reverse exactly half of a turn. If you crank them all the way down, the sway bar would essentially be doing nothing, except making the A arm think it has a super stiff spring.

    Thanks, i will try and again, infact I have tried all the different settings, then when I try manualy the other arm does not move, even slightly as squeegie's. This weekend I will look into it thourougly.

    Yeah that particular one, could not find the link thoiugh. Now it makes sense, my other shocks are countering the effect. So when I run things should run normal......jeez and all this time I thought my set up is very wrong. The problem is I have not been able to play anything for the past three wweks, today even worse , we got severe wind and cold weather.

    Thanks squeegie, I think I over worry too much at times, dismantled again all my shocks, it did work so after all they did work; So now its just a matter of time to test the hdnling of the truck outside, I alos changed all my oil to 40w all arround, still want to perfect that dampening an dlet the sawys do the work ahst it is intended tO; Just love the truck when it takes a jump and shocks are set well, very realistic smooth transition. No bouncing effects. Even though it s buit a hcg basher, I think ot will do well still on my local track..can't wait for summer.

    My antenna is gone!

    What happened?
    I took it off!

    Why?
    Because I don't need it anymore!

    How?
    I got the Futaba R204GF-E 4-Channel 2.4GHz S-FHSS Micro Receiver.

    http://www.gpdealera.com/cgi-bin/wga...pgm?I=FUTL7604

    It has in internal antenna with a range of 230' (70M)!

    Now if I decide to go the e-buggy route, I don't have to bother reaming out an antenna hole!







    It is small and leaves a lot of space in the receiver box to tuck the wires to keep thing looking clean!











    I also finally installed my RPM front bulkhead. Looks so nice mated up with the chassis!

    Great I thought of it for my 3pl, but then again I run mine on the erbe and it is well tucked away with the short antena. Yeah give as a feed back on how you like it.

    By the way at what seeting did you have your fail safe? I am going liek EL Sob , either 2% or neutral

    I've had the car about 50-60' away from me so far with no problems.
    I would have tested it further, but I live near a busy intersection and didn't want to risk it!

    As for my failsafe mode...
    I tried it set pretty high before. I thought it would just hit the brakes.
    I guess it would have hit the brakes if running with the throttle on...
    I tested it while it was standing still. It flew into reverse and into my shins!


    I now have my failsafe set at neutral!

    With the help of forum members, I got the Hot Racing 17mm adapters that slide over the MIP 12mm hubs.

    Just got them in today and they fit great!

    I love that the wheel nut that holds it on fits flush with the adapter... that's why I had closed nuts with my STRCs!

    My favorite feature? The 17mm nut has an O-ring in it so they would be difficult to back out and/or fall off!











    Since I can change sets of wheels so easily now, I finally put my street wheels on and took out all the preload on my shocks just for kicks:

    You're the one who set me straight on these adapters!

    If you like the wheel/tire combo, they are ProLine's 2.8 F-11 17mm wheels with JConcepts 2.8 G-Locs.

    Looks sweet, I didn't even notice the oring on the wheel nuts.

    I have to pick up a set of the G-Locs and F-11 rims. I was thinking about getting some of the new black rim GRP tires but I really like the look of the G-Locs on the F-11s

    Awsome , just great , classic. I like the way it sits low, what speed have you got her too on speed runs if any. I myself have never tempted to do speed runs yet, as a basher it is already very fast....hihih, adronaline rush.

    That Bajr body is just sick....great work of art

    That's the reason it was more difficult to initially thread the nut. The O-ring was there adding friction.

    Have you had a chance to take it out and get it dirty yet? I'm wondering how your esc temps are doing on 3s?

    Unfortunately, no.
    I've just been able to run it maybe 5 minutes or so at a time in my front yard and no real temps to speak of. Too many cars on my street.
    I'm hoping to take it to a local park next week and give it a proper run.
    When I do, I'll be taking temps and report back to everyone...

    I beat the crap out of mine, on 3s, with the stock ESC and the Funny Car motor with no issues. Sand, grass, dirt, asphalt, skateparks, you name it.
