Prolly the buggy. ONLY thing i dont like about HPI Bajas is that its only 2wd. BUT from what ive seen that doesnt stop it. a guy had one a few years ago behind gateway mail and it ripped thru that sand like it was nothing. Cant wait to your brushless in action!
Im lookin at those 4wd baja clones or other 1/5 4wd R/Cs

EmaXX, not sure you will be even using them, but do you have a way to power your chargers? If not, I have one of these I can bring:

I guess I will try to bring the ramp also, if I can fit it in my car

Thats awesome. i have 3 chargers that im bringing and the way i charge it is either cigarette lighter and the other 2 is to the battery. But since my car is gonna be in the parking lot, thats gonna be more conveniant. My friend is coming too, he has a jeep cheroke which he would drive all the way because he has 4X4. can plug my chargers on that. But thats great if u have room bring it.

I would love to bring my ramp. But i know i have no room. Maybe i can put it in my friends truck

Why 5SC super flux its only a modified savage XL. Get a Baja 5sc SS LE Kit from tower ($904-$30discount) and do the electric conversion.

I think its different. The tvp is bigger. Idk about that. I will look into it. I have something close to it. If u have a savage, All u have to do is buy the 1/5 tvp and make ur savage into a 1/5 scale. Thats what i did. All show u my tvp 1/5 scale tomorrow

Dam EMAXX...not good. Why did u show me that?? Know i want to get one...lol.
Ive Been checking the Super Flux out on youtube...now i really want to get a 1/5 scale!
It is a funny that is just a bigger Savage....but maybe a 1/5 scale Savage is in the works...hmm...then maybe 1/5th traxxas??
I see there are alot more options for 1/5th scale offroad now....

I should be at the spot before 10am. If your buddy drives back there EMAXX, he should have no problem in a Jeep. Ill be drivin back there also in a 4wd van...that will also be a good place to work on our r/c (hopefully not us will have to...beside us nitro guys...lol)

with this rain think we should make it for 10: 10:30am
Some people especially me would need serious help moving equipment. example 2 trucks, fuel and toolbox. Would anyone with a truck or vehicle adequate for off-road lend a helping hand?

Hmm that might actually be good if it rains at 10 and firms up the sand a bit, not too much though my trucks aren't fully waterproof.

E-Maxx, thanks. I'll take your offer. Hopefully i'll get to meet up with you all soon enough. If not soon enough, maybe you can mail it to me and I'll paypal you the dough? Just let me know what pinion gear I'd need for it. I guess pretty much I'd be buying whatever comes with the brushless Pede.

Looking outside now its overcast but looks like the rain will hold out and let you all bash away.

Enjoy

Yea he was using my camera so I got all the videos. I'll put them all into a youtube video. Is it OK If I stop by your place tomorrow to pic up the stuff I left in your van? I think a toolbox, bag of tires, that battery thing, and the ramp.
