Hi all

First post, I can't add a photobucket url? I guess as I'm not a full member? I've attached a thumbnail for now.

Nearly out of reach

What goes up must come down

Love ALL these posts and how did I miss that there is a member just up the road in Waco????? We went there during Spring Break for a Dr. Pepper. :D I can't say which photo is my favorite as they are all good, but I think the winner of the levitating car would have to be the Hot Shot in mid air time freeze. There is also mention for the WARP SPEED award for the Flying Traxxas Revo ;) . My biggest question to date though, how the heck did the ramp from your son's GH exploits end up in NJ launching a CLod????<_<

Nice,

Paddle tyres?

I couldn't post using Photobucket because I was using Internet Explorer, chrome works no problem.

Thanks, I'm using Firefox, I'll experiment. Yep, Sand Paws on the back and Sand Runners on the front, I've just done a sweet lexan body in pearlescent blue/purple as well, I'll get another flying photo over the weekend :-)

Sorry gents, only 3 wheels off the ground gets my likes vote. Must admit some of the jumps are amazing and looks painful upon landing.

That was one of the few clear pics that day, truck took a beating as I did in the 110+ degree desert heat. It was hard to find a decent ridge in my old 'hood'. Thanks!!!

Great looking KC there, one to be proud of and catching air aint too bad either.

Thanks Chris! Lets see some pics of your King Cab Monster Racer :)

Sunday last week. I'm totally surprised about the low, low quality of the RC4WD Toyota lexan bodies. Supposedly these are made specifically for rockcrawling, and the thing would not even survive ONE hard bash. They're trash! The HPI still doesn't even have a crack. Jaw dropping resistant stuff. Anyway, here's three pics :)

When you have 3 rc's with you and you can only drive one at a time, you try to.jump the other two :) one time I jumped wrong, landed on a radio and knocked all the batteries out and the cover off it lol

Erich, looks like Soccer Mom does it all kinds of ways. ;) and Berman, WHERE did you get the air from??? I am not seeing any way to get those trucks off the ground.

Interesting! It looks like my Twin Det has a long-lost American twin! Here's mine:

Perhaps not absolutely identical, but pretty close!

Wow XV, you weren't kidding! Looks great!

Originally I went with bronze on the wheels and light bar, but as the paint chipped away and the spot lights broke off, I decided to repaint with the gun metal color I'm using now.

Here's how it looked when I originally built it.

It looked good with bronze.

But gunmetal looks better.

Nice shocks BTW!
