I'd go AX10 all the way. The axles can be picked up cheap and the aftermarket stuff is huge and if you needed anything made, i'd have an easier time knowing I can make it for my rig.

Once I get my "comp" rig off to Florida, and im not running around like crazy, I want to get my "scaler" going also, im still debating what to do but I got some ideas... [8D]

My personal experience with RC4WD stuff is... 50/50... my aX came with a pair of their rims and those stupid things couldn't hold a bead to save their life [:'(] they do sell cool stuff but comeon Moron... its more fun to MAKE the rig your self

PS: you got Facebook
frames i can do. axles, tires, rod ends, and shocks on the other hand...
i cant make the wheels either, but nether can you (stamped steel). i probably could make a makeshift 2 or 3 speed transmission using various pinions/spurs if i tried but that would take more work than i care to do (hand making everything with a dremel, bench grinder and drill press).

it's not real high on my list of "must see movies". lol

the only reason i'll watch it on dvd is becasue dwayne johnson is in it.

i did watch ip man 2 this weekend. insane kung fu movie, also a very well made film.

i also got a start on the rc8be body. center section is under way.

going for a cliff lett of ae fame paint scheme.

took my 1.75 year old son for two hikes this weekend, he did them all by himself other then a few areas where i held his hand.

he also caught sight of the rc8be, so i had to let him have a look. he spent an hour looking at all the intricate working parts and said "WOW!" a lot. lol
he loves to look at anything with wheels. thats my boy!

i loved them both, very much. i am a huge donnie yen fan, IMHO he can do no wrong. lol

the first one was a more historical drama, whereas the second is a kick you teeth in wing chun fest.

there is a 3rd, the legend is born, but donnie's not in it. infact he said he will not do anymore films about ip man.
he feels that the two are enough and they are only loosely based on the life if ip man.

the chinese film industry is really kicking it up a notch, they are making so many damn good films.

i've watched ip man so many times i don;t even need subtitles anymore. lol, cool way to learn chinese.

some films on my must see list:

14 blades
legend of the fist, the return of chen zhen
thirteen assasins

not to mention the 1000's of older films that we here in the states are just getting good access to.

donnie yen and sammo hung are awesome, tony jaa ain't bad either but he's not 1/2 the actor the other too are (yes i know he's thai, but they are also making very good films lately, see chocolate)
i'm also a big fan of chow yun-fat.

Yeah, the new Lambo is sweet for sure.. I like the direction that they chose to go.. lighter weight (using CF tub) and not necessarily more power.. but not like 700hps is not enough.. ha ha!!
