LOL, this is a goofy looking car!!

Whoa! We did not just call a Mercedes-Benz Brabus Unimog U500 Black Edition (my favourite "car" of all time) goofy looking did we?

Brabus?! LOL... nuts!!

6.4L inline 6 turbodiesel, 280hp, 811 lb ft of torque, and capable of 75 mph. Wouldnt it make a sweet towing rig?

No doubt at 280hps, even w/ all that weight, is capable of more than 75mph?! I'd guess it is gearing limited... ?!

Would be cool if Tamiya does a kit on this, ha!! (they make it in the "Jr" series!)

No, the Multi-Function Unit is the electronic units that power up the lights, the speaker unit, the vibration unit, and also act as the ESC..

You don't need it.. but it is kind of fun to have it, I guess!

Hey LB, I got the kimbrough, thanks! Did you get the crossmember yet? A little problem though...isn't there supposed to be the saver part? because there are just 3 splines in the pkg? I'm a little confused.

What?! Was the package torn or something??

It should be in the Kimbrough sealed bag.. a complete servo saver unit..

Can you post a pic?! Geez, mail theft again?!?!

I really don't want another car but i think i have to get the inferno. They are making that car with bodies of the cars i absolutely love . Subaru WRC, dbr9, superGT calsonic 350z, M5, and now the ferriari F430!!! its just too much pressure, i don't want to spend anymore on a new car

I might just have to find a bunch of used rolling chassis'es and get all the bodies

ORIGINAL: Lunchboxer
Inferno GT now w/ F430 body.. sweet!

Oh, BTW, my friends and I plan to hold a race on my track on Sat. so I hope to get pics in stuff...and that is if I can find a new clutchbell for the savvy. I'll also make a vid, as my friends have planes/helis too.

This is cool...although underpowered... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diFrz...elated&search=

Letter envelope!!

BUT, inside of the paper envelope, it has the original Kimbrough packaging! So nothing should come out!!

Man, I just don't have good luck w/ sending stuff... (or receiving!) Mindwreck's battery bars were ripped from his package as well.. [:@]

I sent my part in bubble wrap in a padded envelope.

Well, I thought the envelope looked kinda raggy at the top, but I didn't really inspect it. There is a cut with a partial tear at the top of the kimbrough pkg.

Don't worry LB, at least your pkgs. don't get lost. 3 lost MOs to Wubby, and the current one has been 1.5 weeks and I don't think he has gotten it.

Can't send parts in a letter envelope, they get destroyed going thru the sorting machine because it is meant for letters, not parts.....

The SAVER part has been lost in the mail.

Sorry guys.

I swear someone stole it! At least in Mindwreck's case.. cause his was sent in a cardboard box.. and someone simply opened it, then put it back into my mailbox.. [:@]
