Default Great (muddy) day!

Well... decided to go delamere with my MB pro, what a blast!

Before this post i had never rolled or tipped my MB once! ...that was until...today!

Arrived at Delamere Forest (in UK) about mid day, started her up which took a good 15 mins because me being a soft c00nt got mixed up with the choke & had the choke off while priming & trying to start it, took me a good 15 mins to realise.. (doh!) ..but once started all was well & 1 tank lasted me over 1 hour

anywayz below is pics, i did jumps/bumps/rolls/flips you name it, it did it! ...& ANYONE who says these things are weak, must drive them 30mph into a brick wall & wonder why it broke :P , becuase if i gave my Nitro truck the same bashing i gave my MB today my nitro would now be spares or repair! :-)

From this....



To this!.....









All in a days driving! .... Damn sunday drivers :P

More pics @ www.rctruckz.com !

As much as id now like a tuned pipe, ive decided to go for other parts 1st, such as alloy arms/carrier radio cover then front brakes, as soon i get these (especially front brakes) then i will get a tuned pipe as atm my brakes would not handle the extra speed/power

...all i need now is.... money!

Nothing better than playing in the mud! It was so strange too, the X-Can stayed perfectly clean. I guess the heat kept it dry and nothing would stick too it. Kinda strange....
