Deadpool was rated R for a reason... just so you know.

Fantastic movie, but then again I am a comics fan and to me Deadpool is what makes some comics great, he is not overpowered like Superman so he can still have relatable problems, he's hilarious and you can have pictures like this:



And why is he about to shoot Tom Sawyer with a rocket launcher? Because Deadpool, that's why.

First swapped ball diff to my SC10 in preparation for the race day. Went to the track to test it, but realized the dogbones were too loose and kept making a crazy popping sound when driving. As it was also looking like rain, went home to install some O-rings to keep it place - only at home realizing I could've taken a pair from the gear diff I also had with me. Bleh. But ended up installing a total of six new o-rings in the end to make sure the dogbones stay in the proper place.

Then even though weather looked better I figured better not try my luck with that, and figured I'd do some maintenance on the shocks, some of which seemed to be leaking again. Ended up converting them to big bore springs while at it. Got the springs when I also ordered new shocks, but the seller didn't deliver the shocks... so as I was, for the umpteenth time, looking at my shock options I figured the conversion would make most sense. Ended up doing it without even needing to buy any new parts, which is always nice. Used spare Gmade spring retainers in the front, then was cursing not having another pair for the when I figured given the lack of threaded shock bodies anyway I'd just convert some spring cups by cutting and dremeling the middle part away - and voila, all set for the rear as well. Won't affect performance much I'm sure but does away with the spring rub that the V2 shocks have, plus allows me to use the same size springs as my SC5M (and SCTE 3.0 for that matter). Plus looks slightly nicer

On my lunch break dreaming up 1/5 scale builds. It would be fun to try out all the different engines, from small block to the crazy big custom engines.

Deadpool makes those movies look tame. Since she’s seen the first you know what walking into. Just not the typical father/daughter movie.

Laurel. Heard few minutes of this today on the radio. Never once heard Yanny. Even when they separated the high and low audio. With the low removed it just sounded like a whistle. No actual words.

Sounds like something for a shifter cart.

Why won't it let me like this?

Supposedly Howard The Duck was a huge flop, but everyone I know that has seen it loved it.
