Yeah i can't wait to get them installed. the way the honcho is set up it's slower than stock. i grabbed them because i was a dummy and stripped the chub to axle screw.

but i snagged some cool parts for the creeper.

these aren't going on yet. i'm waiting for the chubs then all at once.the rear lockouts also and some shims if all that iv'e read is right.
i'm noticing all the complaints i have seen about the diff lock servo set up but i'm going to try working it out any way.

A few more things for the creeper

well ok these aren't the ones i'm going to use because i kinda ordered the sedonas but wanted the rovers so these will go on the rock slide.
but this is some of what i was waiting for. i was so eager to get them on that i didn't take any NIP pic's.

the new chubs came in so them and the new knuckles went on.

the new rear lockouts are on but i ran into a problem.looking into how to resolve it.

one of the new diff lock servos for the creeper.

need one more of these micro servos and just one mini servo for the dig. the mini is a little bit bigger than the micro.
so there is going to be three different sizes of servos. sounds kinda crazy.

Have you broke any of the stock parts yet? I don't buy upgrades until I get pieces, and so far no problems...knock on wood!

No nothing has broken yet. just making it strong. i'm going to set up the ascender as a mud truck.

got em on and i think they look kinda good plus they weigh a little more than the stockers.

I got my Father's Day gift, and started to build a kit that would do a little bit of crawling (more of a fast paced freestyle basher). ...Axial's assembly/packaging line must have had a long night out on the town, 'cause my kit's advertised Hard anodized aluminum M4 threaded turnbuckles turned out to be chromed steel

...to top it off ...I'm missing two 20mm screws from a bag. Bag B is as far as I got. I sure hope the rest of the kit has no more surprises for me.
I am waiting for e-mail response back as I try to scavenge screws from other RCs to continue the build.

Ouch RustyUs that suck when they do that. hopefully axial will make good with you. i'm not big on chrome a bit to shinny for my taste so i would be unhappy too.

Got the second punisher shaft today. it's a little smaller than the first one so it can fit in with the dig.

very shinny for now.

After more than a year owning my honcho the ESC finally fried last week so i picked this up.

not putting the 30 t motor in because i like the 35 t that i'm using now so i'll save it for something else. like maybe the ascender.
got it waterproofed and installed. runs better than before.

Well it finally happened. the front end of the ascender gave out so for 15 bucks it's back to good.

the new ones look to be a little stronger. guess i find out.
