RE: Return of Lunchbox..

The Dirt Paws were awesome for traction, but were no good for my lawn. The Vise Crawlers are perfect and the white wheels look better. Still playing with ESC settings, but my suspension is...

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

It's actually very easy, you just sand them in a circular pattern hex-down against 320 grit sand paper until the internal step opens up to the full diameter inside the adapter. Then switch to...

Here are the grommets that now hold the body firmly in place, the o-rings were tossed off by the fury of the Mamba Max. http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b168/carpescorpio/grommeting.jpg

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

This is a closer view of the ball-studs and chassis stiffening rails. It also shows the home-made fan mount over the Mamba Max ESC. http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b168/carpescorpio/innards.jpg
