    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Made a start on my holiday build however there’ll be a little lull as I forgot the steering servo seems a little harsh to cannibalise the other buggies I brought with me, so I’ll have to investigate my options in Cornwall. However as I’m typing I realise that my Konghead has the real wheel steer servo in it, so its more like a kidney donation?

    Some masking and two stickers Any tips for getting paint into the rear wing creases on the bigwig with rattle cans?

    Another GT2 with the Hot Wheels I hope to replicate

    Is this real? GF01 Monster Beetle...

    Yeah, odd choice I'd have thought for this buggy? Monster truck wheels for crawling? Or is that more a true monster truck, all the torque to climb over obstacles rather than how we're used to seeing an MB dash about?

    Really interested in this, though mainly for the body as I have a GF01 already. The reduction portals - I get the clearance benefit, but do they slow the vehicle down, or just reduce stress on the drivetrain?

    More progress on the F104, while watching Netflix’s F1 Driven to Win ... A little more progress on the GT86 TRD,I think I’m going to have to hope the plethora of stickers hides the masking blushes

    Got some rc time in the back garden with the kids. Lots of fun, but some wear and tear to sort out. Heavy Dump - for a truck that seemed to just sit there wiggling its wheels ( 2 year old still finds this more amusing than trying to make it go), it managed to shed a front shock spring somewhere. Stock pogos, so hopefully I have some spares around. XV01T - 4 year old getting much better at controlling this. The crashes seem intentional now. Handily this decided to shed a damper in my hands as I picked it up to pack away. So the plastic spacer fell right in to my hands. Quick day of thread lock has hopefully sorted that this evening. Always impressed by how tough this truck is. Tomahawk - I sometimes wonder if I had to give all my cars away, this would be the one I’d keep. However what I’d don’t like is the shocks. Pretty much no rebound right now, I push hit the buggy down, it stays down. Inspected and topped up the front dampers this evening, and it’s not much better. The similar shocks on my Optima seem to be ok, so some figuring out to do... ( we did run a Konghead too, but that was dull and just worked flawlessly )

    Looks really good to me, loving the colour scheme. Looks very tempting as a beach holiday build. Would you say it’s good enough stock, without getting sucked in to hop ups?

    Some progress on the F104 Pro II body trimmed and mid paint. After enjoying the ps fumes I cracked open another body After the front corner got torn of my yellow Evo body, I fancied something for my XV-01 to wear on the shelf.

    Been quiet on the RC front of late, so a fresh delivery: need to choose a motor and somewhere to run it!

    Stared lustily at my Avante BS and 935 Black edition boxes. Told myself they’ll wait till I’ve finished some other projects. Found two missing screws from my Javelin build. Fitted them, but couldn’t motivate myself to go any further. Back in the box it all went. Instead I pulled out a Lego kit I’d had for a while (Diner building) and made a start on that I also discovered that Lego building makes my watch think I’m doing exercise, so I crossed over the 12500 step mark, so gained my points quota for my healthcare. I wonder if rc tinkering will do the same?

    Having to reload page every few mins

    Yep, getting this on my iPad right now. I’ve not tried any remedies yet.

    Painting body color Hyundai i20 93045

    A bit too cold, so I don’t think it dried out properly between coats. Still not decided what to do with it.

    Custom MFC using Arduino

    This sounds awesome! I've played around with Raspberry Pi's etc with add on components etc, I don't think it's ever dawned on me to try an MFU. All the throttle profiling sounds very swish, so I'm looking forward to reading about your progress. I've still never managed to complete any of my trucks, I'm kinda hoping now you'll inspire me to finish them
