    Installed the narrow inner fender kit. I know it is not a real performance mod on my sport, but makes it look a little cooler.

    Just curious- I heard the sport body either doesn’t fit, or maybe just rubs on the fenders. How did yours work out with the stock sport body?

    This morning i went out on the trail with my blue Merc G500, very cold but dry weather so had a great time, then gave it a good blow of with the compressor and a good clean even polished the body, now it's ready for next time.

    Ordered a Savox 2290 & BEC and installed some cheap skidplates. Took it to the park and promptly discovered the design up front is no-good and ripped it up on the rocks.

    Any suggestions for a solidly mounted skidplate for the front diff?

    Funny thing I think I have noticed about skid protection. The metal stuff looks nice, and is rugged. But it doesnt seem to skid easily over the terrain like plastic does. On my truck, its metal bumpers get hung up quite a bit more than when they were stock plastic. I am thinking that plastic is a better material for skid plates. Even just a metal screw head hanging down is enough to hitch on something. Plastic seems to take the scratches better too....at least often times it does.

    Plastic sheet with countersunk screws. That is what I want to try.

    Small 3H solo run no amazing pictures but it was mainly a test n tune of the HH 3800KV TMPBL and 1/10 MX ESC. Did awesome and spunky on 3s power but still controllable. —11°C without the windchill.

    I installed some Spektrum telemetry sensors for RPM, voltage and temp. So many wires!!! Trying to figure out how to organize everything!

    What body did you use? That looks like a sweet project.

    It is a Tamiya Bullhead Hardbody. I may just reboot that build too.

    Differential covers installed. Love the look. So much better than red plastic.

    Installed the VXL-4S with matching 2400kv Traxxas motor.

    There’s only two things that cause minor problems, the servo mount needs a small bit of trimming, and the stock wire on the VXL-4S is just a hair short causing some limitations on mounting.

    I think they look way better without those stupid orange boards and red jerry cans stuck on the side!

    Took my TRX6 for a light "Bashing" session. can only go 2 ft up in the air off a ramp but it was really fun. Had a hard face plant, and the truck weighing at 12 lbs was enough to bend the front of the chassis. the lexan body does not fit right anymore, both the whole front end "faces down" while the rest of the chassis remains striaght lol. I tried to bend the frame back but couldnt set everything right, the front fender wells still would not sit flush with the side rails.
    So I took my whole rig apart in modules and I am awaiting brand new takeoff chassis from ebay

    I uploaded some pictures but that was after I had already bent the chassis back the best I can.
    Nothing else broke, I was surprised! the drivetrain is bulletproof even on full sends. and i also have 113g portal cover on all 6 portals lol. It's a heavy beast.

    The new TRX6 chassis arrived last night and I was able to put the rig back together! She's back to normal now, just in time for weekend hiking! Definitely no more jumps for her! I learned my lesson haha...
    On a side note, If any of you are from the vegas area, can you tell me where some open desert areas are for my UDR? All I know is Cornerstone Park.
