My new hobby that has taken over the old one.
Looks like the Traxxas displaced Patches in the Obutto
Patches is sitting back listening to Carrie Underwood
That thing is big! Looks FAST. Patches could proally take it for a ride!
It's Revo. I still have my good old Stampede.
It's the Summit. It's based off of the E-Revo, but it has more+softer suspension travel, hi-lo transmission and lockable front and rear diffs.
By far my favorite Country song. Wrong or Right, That's Real, Son. What????????
I got a Traxxas Slayer Pro 4x4. Thing is almost to much fun. It's got a 2 speed transmission, and I LOVE how it sounds when it shifts. Lots of fun. Towards the end of fall last year, one of the nicer days, I had it out at my friend's house. There were a few of us that were running. I had my Slayer Pro, and there were two Revo's. Anyway, we're racing around, and at some point I went 2nd gear pinned, slideways into a hidden brick in the grass. Bent the hell out of it. But surprisingly, I got enough adjustment out of the suspension to get her to roll straight. These things are a crazy good time.
Oh, my bad!:redface: Same thing only different :sHa_hehe:
I guess given my Stampede has a Slash Chassis it's not a Stampede any more. :sCo_chinscratch: Now it's a monster! :sCh_taz:
R/C cars are my old hobby. Beware, if you think a gaming rig for GT5 costs you just wait till you add up two years of parts and "toys" for that toy. :sSc_eek:
Don't worry, I know. I've already spent over $1100 just to get started.:sSc_eek: I knew I should not have added up the receipts.
I use to run Pan cars. $500 for the kit, (back in the 90's) $300 for a motor that could last only 1 lap.( went through a few of them) Tires $40 a pack and they lasted 3 race days.= OUCH!!!!!!
Yup, easy to do.
I have 7 R/C's right now. One is a Traxxas Boat that takes two bats. At $120 ea LI-PO or NMHD that adds up fast. Then a charger that dose both, a balancer, all all the tools. Yes, sir. My fist job was at Hobby People. I've seen $5000 us spent in 10 mins.:sSc_eek:
And airplanes are on the order of 5 more then the cars. And when you crash that, you start all over. :sHa_hehe:
Certainly not a new hobby for me. Cars, boats, airplanes can get expensive, but its in my blood. Been doing it since I was 6.
Heres a link to more pics than you need.
here is a link to my current collection of toys, and yeah it can get rather expensive (and to think the better half would rather I did this than collect HotWheels)
LOL I just used an old spec motor, a pinion and spur out of my RC10 T-2 parts stash, drilled out a clutch hub so I could press in a bearing and used it all to create an electric tooth brush for my nephews science project. At a full 18 volts it would brush the teeth right out of a hippo's mouth but with the 3 volt battery tray I gave it it runs at a much safer speed. It was a great project and it had me into my RC stuff for the first time in a very long time, Im considering ordering a new set of belts for my street weapon and dropping one of those old 10 turns in it
I wish you luck finding parts for your Street Weapon. If anyone I know would have them it would be Losi Parts House. http://www.losipartshouse.com/servlet/StoreFront
As I remember that car was based on the XX-4, if so your belts should be here. http://www.losipartshouse.com/servlet/the-Losi-Parts-House-cln-Losi-Parts-By-Car-cln-Losi-XX-dsh-4-WCE-cln-Drivetrain-Parts/Categories Better hurry, they only have one rear belt left.
Theres nearly $150 us, give or take. But, darn nice tires.
P.S. I hope you cut off the sides of the foam on the outsides so they match the roll in the side of the tire.
Must you keep bringing up the $$$, lol? I'm trying not to think of it. Anyways after some trimming of the foams and 96 screws later, I'm done getting the tires on the rims. Installing them can wait for tomorrow.
Sorry, I do sound like my Dad now.
