So I got myself an electric longboard about two months ago so the Victory X has been sitting on the shelf for most of the time. Took it out for a quick spin after I did.. something with it. Noticed that my front-wheel drive seemed a bit weak and assumed that it was a diff problem.

Got online and was finally arsed to order those nice metal diff casings I've been meaning to order. The casings arrived and I build, grease and install them. Just spinning the wheels works fine and it feels like the diff gears are much better meshed. But still low power in the front. Couldn't for the life of me figure out what the problem was. I mean, the car had been shelved for at least a month.

But the it hit me. I got a new radio a while back, the FS-GT3C, and when I installed the new receiver, I loosened the slipper a bit and forgot all about it. I am such a moron.

In other news, I've gotten a decent action camera. The biggest complaint about it has been that the audio is almost useless when it's in the protective case. Well... I film a lot of low footage on my board with the case on and you clearly pick up me and my friend talking almost 2 meters from the the camera. While we are riding. Also gotten a GPS drone and man do I wish I saw the Pro version before I ordered. So if anyone finds a source for a SJRC F11 Pro camera module at a resonable price, hit me up!
