Default Just got my AVALANCHE

All i can say is wow, this thing is huge, i love it. I cant wait to break it in, thats a volcano in the pictures with it to give you an idea how big this is. Its extremely well built, i will make a video over the weekend the latest.

It even comes with a digital fm transmitter, i dont know if i can wait to break this bad body in.

Looks like they have aluminum right where you need it. Aluminum supports behind the shock mounts, uppeer chassis supports, etc.... It looks very durable and without a doubt a hobby grade truck if you know what I mean.

Yea maybe we'll go to PA some time, but yea we have a blast, we try to get together almost evry weekend. Clermont does ship really fast, usually 2-3 days to get to me, which is great cause I usually have a hard time waiting for my stuff to come, lol.

Anytime I have ordered parts from clermont it has been 2-3 days. Thats great shipping.

I have a really nice track about 5 min from me. It was just redone this year. Not a huge track though.

Darin,
Any word about a stadium truck or any changes, improvements on current trucks. The Avalanche looks awsome. Even better than some bigger names thats for sure.
