Ok, if you promise that you'll take pictures of the box and contents this evening... so we at least have something to admire while you are out "cavorting" around the city with your lady friend. Lol

I might be able to build up an axle or two tonight... (might need to put the sticker job on the NSX body on hold, though.. )

I'll believe this one when the "Next-Up" line gets permanently removed from your sig. hehe.

Ah well, no more kits doesn't mean no more hop-ups... Right? right...?

Yeah, I will take the Next-Up down... I don't see that Aeromax coming anytime soon.. cause I will insist in getting that from Asia..

F-350.. hmm.. still might get it, but that means I need a new radio, etc. ARGH!! (Unless I do some pain in the butt programming to somehow configur the 3rd ch into a 3 position switch...)

Whatever, my TX is running out of memory slots anyway.. I need a dual stick 4-ch (or more) for the semi and tank anyway.. oops, did I just say that... !?!?

But yeah, you are right.. will still have hop-ups to buy, but there's really nothing much more to get, though!! [&:]

Quick info - Not to go to far off topic.

I'm running my F-350 with my Spektrum DX3 Pistol Grip. It has a 3 position rocker switch for shifting, so I can still drive it with the steering wheel (which is pretty nice).

If your Futaba setup has a 3-position switch on the third channel, you don't need anything special to get it up and running.

3PM only has a 2-position switch or full mixing..

I might be able to program it via the "Condition 2" setting, and make it a "4-position" switch.. BUT, that would means it would require hitting 2 bottons / switches to go from 1 to 3.. (1 to 2, 1 switch, 2 to 3, 1 switch..)

I miss my old school dual stick... !

I still got an old old 4-ch somewhere in the storage.. might try to dig that up.... ha ha!!

LOL! I still think the F-350 is a cool addition to any RC collection, though... I hope the price come down some more!

Oh, did I say BIG box?! I put the F103GT Courage box next to it for comparison...

(the TXT box is also deeper...)

Ya going to paint the other body? Honestly, I havent painted mine yet, cause I might use it for another truck. I was supposed to use it and keep the prepainted for a shelf queen, but Ive put more scratches and dents in it than anything else.

Yup, that box takes a lot of space on the wall!!! ( I hang up my boxes, but put most in the closet; it took up too much room in the closet)

Yeah, probably will paint it up.. maybe put it on the TLT?! LOL.. might be too big?! But might look scale! (Since my TLT will be stretched to be around 13" WB..)

Hmm.. we will see!!
