Lumber should not be a problem. In fact, I believe alot should be left over.
But, I've in the past underestimated some projects.
I'll have to move with truck thou, forklift has been out for rental, minor setback. See ya tomorrow

I spent the last 3 hours there moving dirt.


I have the double and the table top almost finished, the larger step up is down with the off camber step off. May need some tuning. Move the other dirt to do a double going into the reverse turn.. Need to cut out some more dirt and we should be able to start to put the pipe down soon.

Default LIPO BATTERY

Anyone looking/need a Lipo Battery?
I have a Turnigy 20-30c 2.2 2200 mah 3-cell for sale.
Idiot me bought wrong size off Ebay. Was just looking for smaller mah for qualifiers & pic looked bigger/wider (so bid away & I won the darn thing).
Besides my ESC's won't allow for 3 cell batteries.

Measurements: L=4", W=1.5", H=1"

Asking $10.00, $15.00 shipped

Ebay Listing:
Turnigy 2.2 2200 MAH 3S Lipo Battery

Brand New with Traxxas Style Plug.

Confirmed Fit in VXL Bandit and Rustler no modifications to stock.

11.1V 20C

Great Batteries. I have been using Turnigy Brand Batteries for some time now and I am very impressed with the Quality. I use them in my Traxxas Boat as well as my Traxxas Cars.


PM me if interested
Thanks
Eric
