What did you do to your rc this week?

Hope so, I saw some pics but haven't heard how it went. I think I read that he didn't finish course 2 because of a huge cliff he didn't want it to fall off.

Went over to Brooks' yesterday and pulled the SCX10 out of the box for the first time in.... who knows how long. Killed the pinion and spur hill killing. It was still a 14 pinion and 87 spur. I had bought spares a long time ago and also bought a 20T spur. Put that one on and it's fun again. I thought a took a couple videos of reverse wheelies, but phone only took still shots...
 
Well, decided to ditch the green and silver combo for something a little more subtle. Also installed all new bearings front to back. Now for the detail work.

Waiting on my ottsix Moab body to show up in the mail. Should be sub 5 lbs if all goes to plan.

I used my SCX10 as a crawlspace delivery platform for a pile of tools on Friday.. Work Smarter, not harder...

Those LED headlight just justified themselves and the new Swaybar that BBFab added took the weight like a champ.. toted my Dewalt impact driver and a pipe wrench..

Also, started assembling my Bomber kit.. The ESC and Servo came in friday.. Just need a motor and a battery and it will be ready to run as a 2.2 but i plan to down scale it to a 1.9.

This thing should haul ***!
 
I made a little progress with the interior of my JK. Got the fuel cell and lines installed, along with the nitrous bottle and battery. Also figured out a way to secure the spare tire.

I got the Black TJ back into running order. Hadn't planned on comping it any further. However, it is getting another shot as I hear the courses at ECSC in PA are a little more C1 friendly vs the last run in Oklahoma. I cleaned and lubed all the bearings back up, greased the axles, Trans and tcase. Installed a 4PKS radio vs my 4PLS I have been running. Going to Knobby Creek next weekend for some fun running with the GA Rock Zombies and SCRCC.

Oh...and had some cool new winches arrive from RC4WD!

The little black TJ is still alive and kicking! Some fresh electronics and she is back up and running. Cleaned and lubed the bearings, greased the transmission gears as well as the axles and t-case.
