but someone actually posting? thats like ...duuuuude... nobody does that anymore. this is some like out of nowhere stuff. i mean, imagine you're me. sitting here with a cool buzz, watching an ASMR video, and suddenly out of nowhere you get an email about someone posting not just on this forum, but in this thread. its mind blowing. it's like ...can, can you still do that?... is that a thing?

It is a thing, kinda, since I haven't been here in three years.

Also...

Buzz -- yep.

I'll be checking in daily. I dusted off the project last week and (for some reason) feel motivated to continue.

Well, spank my ass and call me Charlie. I'll try to improve.

My truck is completely custom. I think Foxy had a thread in the Giant Scale forum.

seriously though, you working on it again? or did you give up again? will you ever read this post? will you respond?

in other news im board as hell, got some thunder storm action last night and everything's wet today. which kind put a monkey wrench in my plans. was planing on doing some yard work. that got canceled cause the yards all mud where i need to work. also waiting on RC parts. got some old school stuff that should be ready to rock here shortly.
