Uhm....would you mind driving to groton? Don't know about lunchboxer, but how bout you? I need to see a clod in person to make sure I want to put down like 300 bucks to finish my tuber. If it aint as great as I though I'll scrap it.

But you don't live in Groton. Whatever the case, I'll drive to you. I've driven farther for less of a reason.

I'm going to run the S-Clod stock first aside from the shocks and bearings and stuff. I just want to see how it runs and it's not really going to be a rocker. I just want to bash around with it.

I know of a good place in groton though and it's a little closer to you but whatever you want to drive to. I'm deciding if I want to finish the clod or plane off for a while and just hop up my current cars. tnx-new shocks, tlt-new chassis,pede-cf chassis, aluminum stuff, get a scroll saw etc. If I see the clod and like it then I may get a clod.

My pede is probably my best bet right now. The crawler is all done minus stronger servos which aren't really needed for bashing and my tnx just needs new shocks and front bumper and glow plug, but all that is cheap on ebay or tower. I also have more possible mods or the pede.

Well it's confirmed, tracking shows it out for delivery. Murphy's law though, I will be out on an estimate from 5-7pm tonight so I'll miss the delivery.[:@]

Yes, but they don't always sign for the larger packages as there is limited space.


I thought ahead though and told him the package was coming and that I would get it as soon as I came back.
