Cool classics. I guess I have to break out my camera and include my garage in these great collections. Thanks to all for keeping the classics alive.

OK.....I have 2 classics, The first series Traxass T-Maxx with an OS upgrade motor and shorter swing arms to make it look a little more scale. The second Classic is the Wild Willy 2 stock....no need for upgrades as it is fun "as is". The third Truck is my Killer Clod with ESP Rockzilla and other upgrade frame stuff, Titan Motors, EVX-2 ESC and 2 packs of 3S1P 2600 A123 cells.

Of course I can not go too wild on the turns as you can imagine. But.....it does look in my opinion, looks better. As you can imagine.....I rolled it a few times....LOL!!! The hardest thing for me is when it gets far away, the depth of field is difficult to judge and that is when I roll it. In the dirt, it handles great, it is the grass that seems to really grab traction in the turns. Thanks for the kind words also...
