i think i set a new record for the most F words used in a 10 mile commute. swear to god. it's just a little California rain people! set the wipers on intermediate, low setting. turn your headlights on (it is the law after all) and frickin drive!
and they really should put timers on crosswalks, if you don't have your butt out of the street in X amount of time you deserve to be run over!

Cold and dry night. Took the Xpress M chassis out tonight. Shop lot is like an ice rink compared to the church lot. But been too long of wet and cold. Just good to get outside for a drive.

While the feeling returns to my fingers, flipping channels I find myself watching an Il Divo performance on PBS. It’s fund raising time again. Not into this style of music usually, but they are amazing singers. And how easy they make it look. Simon Cowell is still laughing to the bank with this group.

Made a little progress on the FGX this morning.

Heading to basement shortly. Not sure which car I’ll run tonight yet.

Can't sleep which isn't good since I got a final in the morning but night drives help in these type of situation.

high speed twisting landing on high grip pavement. That would easy snap it. Now for the 1/10 thereís a full aluminum rear housing for around $130. Didnít see one for the 1/6 version. But it would not suprise me Iíd there was. Thought Iíd bet itís expensive

someone just finished making some aluminum axles for these, I'm sure they will be a little pricey. Losi talked about making them, but they would have been over $300.

I'm just going to stick with plastic most likely.

I was going guess around $300 for a housing and axles. Suprised that no one has offered a special order.
