It finally arrived!!

I literally *could not* be more excited. I never, ever thought I'd get to own one of these. One or two little probs to sort out, but not bad for 75 delivered, even got a spare Chevy grille with it!

Will now be spending the weekend stripping it down and rebuilding. It's going to get two powerful brushed motors, and waterproof electrics. Pretty much going to be the basher of choice I would imagine!

I received my Fox last week which I'm still excited about as its one more of my old high school RC dreams. Its had an active life but runs very well and is 100% complete. So far I've cleaned it up some, I'm about to replace the stock motor with a new sport tuned version, paint the driver, do some maintenance on the drive shafts and inspect the gearbox next.

My postman is fast becoming my new personal hero.

I work nights so am usually at home to receive parcels and today he brought me a little box from Hong Kong containing these....

I feel sorry for our local postman, the amount of stuff he has to carry up to my flat...

My second ever NIB kit!: pajero02.th.jpg pajero03.th.jpg pajero04.th.jpg pajero05.th.jpg

So well packed - arrived quickly, great service from StellaModels again.

I amazed at how big this is though, I was expecting it to be about 2/3rds of the size it is. It's going to have the torquey SuperStock BZ motor, currently in the VLB, with the Mtroniks waterproof esc. Waterproof receiver and look into waterproofing connectors and motor etc.

Wow excellent - are you going to build it? Why have you got two NIB Blackfoots? Why not build one and use it and keep the other NIB, or at least have a shelf queen? Im envious Id quite like a Blackfoot! Was it expensive or did you get it at a good price? :lol:

I paid what it was worth to me :) Deal ? Maybe. Anyway - one of them will be built with the SEES alloy wheels for the Shelf !

Only 1 item in the mail for me today. The driver for my Fox finally... all the way from the UK. Now to decide on a helmet colour scheme to match the bright yellow body work.

There'll be lots more arriving over the next few days, including 3 new gear bags for a DF03 that shouldn't wear out like it did ;)
