Well, I've really been getting into racing lately and bashing now seems kinda boring to me. Trying to get a rustler ready for Rustler spec and then I'll also run a XXX-T in Modified truck offroad and If I get it running in time, I'll probably run the MXT-2s on the track.

Eddie, any more video of the 1/5 Raptor?

That could be a great deal, depends on what you need. Hardware could be pretty vaigue, i have a project revo i have been working on and i have a few $ invested in hardware. Be careful.

I am not QUITE recovered enough to want to Mess with the Nitros yet.

I HAVE been running the Nascada in front of my House.

Also, Me and Adam have been Messin' with our Minis at work.
Got my Rage up to 39 MPH and I know I'll break 40 with a gearing change.

I HAVE been Eyeballing the Nitros though......Give me another week and I'll be running them again!

redharris, hope you get well.

and now Ihave another thing to my order list. Ibent an axel. theres two spots in my parking lot that the cement is split. sometimes I can go full speed over them, other times, it will cartwheel them.

Ihate this crap, Ipush my rc beyond the limit, but at the same time Im anal about the cleanliness and scratches. Ihate bottoming out. but thats the life of a off road rc. In the end, three 125 cc tanks and Its a freakin blast!

What Ros said,,,,+1....
If you run it too long,,,,a bent axle will wear out Bearings a lot faster than normal. The oscillation at high speed really wears on all the linkages too.

I would try to straighten it out a little before you run it then replace asap, like rich said, premature wear on the bearings will happen.

Yes i am back

and yes, i kinda have, no money with fixing my car and geting it on the road, and we all know that costs a lot of green stuff!!!

i just got some money so i am waiting on ordering a brushless system to throw in the MTR, but i need more parts!!!!!! ARRG! its a back hole of money!!!!!

i may not run for a while longer, and the esc in my crawler took a dump so its siting there too! its endless!

but i cant wait for the winter, that is when i do most of my runing! its fun in the snow!
