Stampede has a brushless. Needs some love but who am I kidding I'm going to slam a new battery in and let her rip! 🤡🤡🤡

Been an RC nerd most of my life. Have an old wpl24 hilux I blew the drivetrain out of by adding a lipo to it. Don’t think I have a pic of that one right now.
 
That canvas shell on the crawler is rad! Is that a home build?

Digging the outlaw 2s also...

I'm tempted to change out the bronco body to a pickup or a 1st gen 4 runner.

Thanks. Yeah I made it, also has a 1/8” steel rod skeleton under it. Can kinda see it here.

I wanna do a rc4wd 4Runner or pickup build too. Don’t really have the spare time to nerd out on the scale details right now, maybe this winter. To get all the cool stuff these days and not break the bank you need a 3D printer, and I’m just not willing to get that deep into it lol. Kinda leaning more towards the route of a Baja Rey or something and making it a scale prerunner.

This little thing used to have a flatbed on it too. Got bored of that and made it an actual pickup.

And before that it was a 65 f100 with a popsicle stick wooden flatbed. I go hard on the nerdvirgin RC stuff sometimes.

this thing is straight dangerous with 4s and will clear the 12” bike wheels from under a child with ease. was so frustrating to run when i first got it but has been decently reliable now.

LCG slash that the chassis is all bent to hell is broken due to a general disregard for its well being. been waiting to get a new chassis but theyre constantly on back order. not sure what im going to do about that.

son has a mini 4wd that randomly stopped working. havent had the desire to look into it. kids have it so nice with modern battery technology. 2s on a brushed motor will go FOREVER
 
Got myself an axial 1/24 bronco a couple months ago and man is it fun to drive. Drove it stock for a couple weeks.

Was not even able to flex on 2 tires

Then, just like my exploder, I couldn't keep it stock and the snowball started fast.

i have been into rc cars since i was a kid, my last one i bought was the super baja rey, i drove it a handful of times and then ended up selling it because my friends and i got into airplanes. lol After crashing a larger plane i now stick to the cheaper small ones that can take the hard hits better. lol

Added some FT 12mm shocks to my AE truck along with some new wheels and tires. Should actually hook up now. Oil is a little heavy but might do well on an outdoor track with larger jumps.

Looking fresh... I still need to get over to @Endless Trails and buy his old slash so I can fix my son's car I snapped in half a couple weeks ago...

Good times... If anyone wants to scope this place out sometime would be rad to meet up. Free to run the course with your own car.
 
I'd be game. I've been wanting to pick up an RC trophy truck, so it would give me an opportunity to see what they have.

Took both my boys and our crawlers there a couple mothns ago. Was fun but they were over fairly fast which means I wasn’t allowed to have fun anymore. They like the go fast stuff more.

They both have slash’s so pick myself up a new ultimate 4x slash, used it twice and now it sits lol.
 
got a boys trip up the 395 this weekend and we plan on flying plans at the manzinar airstrip... So i bought this. Good chance it will be crashed by noon.

looking slender. The planes look fun... but I'm not allowed to fly anything RC... had a helicopter drop out of the sky from about 30 ft up back in 2008... never financially recovered.
 
My 11 and 6 year old keep begging me for RC planes! The way they drive the slash’s and crawlers… not happening anytime soon lol!

Start with these. they are pretty resilient and pretty cheap compared to even rc cars. As adults i have got about 6-7 people to buy them.... and they are fun to buzz your friends with. We crash them a good 12-15 times before they are really broke. lol
