I haven't run it yet. Yes, that's a crazy angle. More so that my LSP PRO R. It feels really well planted when I drop it and such. I plan to go for a spin this weekend. Just fabbed up a starter wand at work today.

I'm not sure if I'm capable of that. I tried a few years ago with my camcorder and need some software if I recall. Maybe with my Kodak Easyshare I will be able to. I'm more than willing to try. I'm going to test/tune tonight after work. Then on the weekend I'll try get footage. Theres supposed to be alot more snow coming, but I planned to run it this winter anyway. I'll post the link if I'm successful. Anyone who has experience posting footage: pointers are welcome.

Well, she's out getting fitted for custom snow chains. Should be back tomorrow. Had a carb issue that I thinkg is repaired now. I will swap out shock oil for super light stuff and add shock socks. Then I think it snow flinging time!!!

How old is this truggy?

Here is a T Maxx / 1/8 buggy I made about 7 years ago. I made the chassis, top plate, engine mounts, and a few other things all by hand.

My first r/c vehicle was the TMaxx, which was stock for only a couple months. I then saw a picture of Travis Amezcua's chrome bodied hybrid truck in a magazine and said to myself, " I have got to have that". 1 month later, I had one of my own. My first time racing was with this truck at BBT in Taunton. Powered by an OS RZ .21.

Sorry about no wing guys. I use "Truggy" loosely. And extending the rear shaft would have been good. I don't intent to compete with it, it's my winter basher.....see!

Just tried out the tire chains and WOW!! They hook up pretty darn awesome in the loose as well as packed stuff and even better on ice. I've got some work to complete this project (lighter shock oil and raise ride height) and I'm ready for some snow fun!! I'm going to swap out the Novarossi for an old Mach that I don't mind ruining LOL...``\\:,`\:,

Looks like alot of work went into that top plate!
I think this one is at least 6 years old.
