< he says it all. I was out of flying for 2.5 months because of surgery on my right leg to break and fix it straight.... yep that kept me out of flying for a long time. Finally got around to getting my nutball going and things look on the up and up . If anyone requests I can get a pic of my NICE scar

Well, after the 18T i decided to get a 1/8 truggy, it cost me about $300 to get (a steal in the world of truggies!), and have been loving it all the more. Upgrades on it are minimal, just a new steering servo, oil in the diffs, pro-line Hi-downforce wing, pro-line crimefighters and ofna dish rims are upgrades to it, out of the box i as extremely impressed with the quality of it, the factory "toe" and "camber" settings were horribly off, but other than that, it is built very well. In all my hard driving nothing has broken on this vehicle which has amazed me, can't wait to see what this truck can really do. So far the engine is going gallon 5, it is starting to loose a little "pinch" but still likes to fire up when cool (doesn't fire up when hot, go figure, allways been like that ) if anyone has comments, questions, ask away, pics will come soon as well as videos

I have had my truck for a few months now, very fun to drive... I LOVE to race it around my homemade track, as of now I am wating for my pkg to arive from, got 4 Dirt Hawgz tires, 1 metal diff gear and 1 gear cover, can't wait to install them , THE BOX CAME, WOOOOOOHO, here is a pic, ok, another with the new tires on it, man, they are TINY (compared to the old ones), but the truck accelerates MUCH better and turns A TON BETTER as well , here are 2 links to vids i made of the truck, all stock
EDIT: the car has a bunch more upgrades now and sports a $15 chinese in-runner (4200 KV) and a sidewinder micro ESC, this car SCREAMS

Well, I am [almost] totally new to the whole RC flying scheme. I have tried sims out (very fun), but have next to no flying experence. I am an RC car dude, got a bone stock 18MT, even though I have plans of upgrading it
