  1. The axles look like they're upside down with the trusses at the bottom. I wonder if it's an assembly error. It looks like you might be able to flip the axle and relocate the link mounts to the other side too.
  2. They'd have to really blow me away with their steering, transmission and axles with the CC02. Otherwise, I'd probably do the usual stick a CC01/02 body on a MST CMX/CFX which are fantastic trucks. The only thing I can think of that might make this unique to the CMX/CFX is chassis mounted steering setup with a panhard, which I doubt it has.
  3. Man, I still need to pick up the Turbo Optima... and now this!!!
  4. Took the BOM out to CDM Rocks again on Sunday. I love the way this truck performs.
  5. I had a chance to take this out to CDM Rocks again this past weekend.
  6. Here's a section of CDM rocks that Chris "Browneye" (from RCCrawlers.com) and his buddy introduced me to. When I saw it, I was like, "how in the badword?". Then he and his buddy proceeded to make it up. That was it... I had to make it up that section that day. After many tumbles... I finally made it up several times when I got the hang of it! It's really much more impressive in person than on video. The video doesn't really show the correct perspective of how impressive making it up that section really is. One wrong placement of the rear driver's side tire completely ruins the climb and results in a tumble.

  8. They sell the body shell separately, but not the cage.
  9. Very nice! I've got one on the way as well. You wouldn't happen to be SHOme on RCCrawler would you?
  10. Nice work on the CFX. I love my MST crawlers as well.
  11. Ah, you had me a little confused there LOL! Because I really want a Turbo Optima Mid as well as this one.
  12. That's the Turbo Optima, not the Turbo Optima Mid.
  13. I'm all over this one. http://www.bigsquidrc.com/kyosho-to-re-release-the-turbo-optima-buggy/
  14. Took the good old Sawback 4LS out for the hill climb today. It's definitely not as capable as everything else I have lol. The tires were smaller and the foams too soft, so got snagged quite a bit. The Sawback also had trouble breaking over ledges. I had the battery in the original rear position today. Maybe I'll spend some time with this rig to see if it can't get any better. I'm pretty sure I need to change the foams to something stiffer in the rear, and stiffer springs in the rear as well. I'll also need to revisit moving the battery to the front. I don't expect it to be as good as the others, but I know it can do better than it did today.
  15. I used to use those servos as my budget crawler servo. I now use the DS3218 for my budget crawler servo. It's 20kg, waterproof, and comes with a metal servo horn! You can find them on ebay for around $15 or in packs of 4 for around $50.
  16. Saw this. THis one looks pretty cool!
  17. I ran the truck today.... I... Absolutely... Love... This... Truck! Drivetrain is so quiet! Performs well as I have it right now, and I know that it's not even completely dialed in yet since it was my first run! I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one.
  18. Thanks! Your video seriously has me considering that Comical Grasshopper now LOL! I'll probably wait to see what other comicals they release. I for one like the cage and body on this kit, and I'm pretty happy with it. That being said, if you don't like the body and cage so much, maybe wait for the new chassis kits coming out. They're releasing this chassis in 2 flavors as raw building kits. I'll probably pick up their "pro" chassis kit for my second GS02 chassis.
  19. I got the replacement skid and transmission housing a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to installing them. Here are the replacements. [/url] Here it is compared with the old transmission housing setup New skid also seems to be stronger material. (New on left, Old on right) Top half of the transmission housing (new on left, old on right) Here's the real reason why the new setup will work. All the gears are now meshed together at the top half the transmission housing, and kept in place by that top half. This is the old setup where these two gears were just placed in the bottom half of the transmission, and held in place by "sandwiching" the two halves of the transmission together.
  20. They're more solid I guess. Less chance for things warping out of shape should it become stressed through twisting. The stock plastic ones were 2 halves pieced together which I didn't care for.
