sorry to hear about the rhino but I am glad you have it running now

somehow he was having problems with the lipo and when we were going to race again, he put the lipo in and we heard a pop noise and there were smoke coming out of the truck so I hope it was only the lipo and his motor/esc didn't get fried

why don't you fill the water once you get there? otherwise you are hauling all that dead wt, that is what I do with the moho, take just a 1/4 tank and once I get close to where I am going then I fill it up, just an opinion

Nope i get 9.6 mpg rofl... thats why its a 2008 with 8600 miles on it

most of which is mainly because of all the shows it goes 2.

Let me find a pic

Edit- Here is a pic of it @ the 2008 sema show, all wrapped and stuff.



Nothing to fancy but i can barely afford it anymore so i have to let people take it to shows and photo shoots to try and keep the payment under controll =/

2008 with 8600 and it gets 9.6? Man, I am stupid. I have a 97 with 180000 that gets 11.5.

I almost bought a new car when the gas prices went way up but I did the math and since I don't have a car payment with this one gas would have to reach $5 to make it worthwhile. I was so close to buying a new car but it sucks cuz I have a wife two kids and a greyhound. The greyhound goes to work with me everyday so I needed a car that could take all of that and they were just too expensive to justify a car payment. It was either an SUV or a Scion Xb. I didn't want either so I just stayed with the Explorer I have.
