That was the fastest I've seen a thread been locked. I guess this is the true part 7 since Sir 51D3WAYS dun goofed with the last part 7 thread title.



I've been inhaling a bunch of solder smoke but at least my electronics are almost done. Still hate how thick and bad the heatshrink looks though.

Young Hammy. Now injecting some high caffeine soda soaked nuts. See if they can jump “over the hedge”

So Fyrstormer, assuming he's still allowed on here, asked why I sold the Summit. Simple answer is why keep it? It's a multi-tool of the RC world. If I want a particular tool, I use the correct one, not a multi-tool. It's not as good as the E-Revo at speed, and not as good as a proper crawler when going slow. I sold the XO-1 because it's so fast it's not usable, I'd rather something that's fast, but still usable. I sold the drift car because the drift track got further away, cost more money to visit and was closed for 2 years because of Covid. I sold the HBX Devastator because I got three Kyosho Mini Z 4x4s, so it was pointless and a bit rubbish (same goes for the FMS FJ Cruiser I bought and then very quickly sold). I sold the MERV because it's possibly the most fragile vehicle Traxxas ever made, and it required more wrench time than run time.

See if you guys can keep this thread open for at least a week ;-)

Looks like 3rd straight 90+ day. Supposed to start to return to more normal after today. Still haven’t made choice for Saturday, but looks like a rainy drive either direction. And a bad bad day for the outdoor group to have 1st race.



Watched “Tenet” as last of free movie week Monday night. 3rd time. Found the two bits I missed in the story previously. I do now wonder if there are 2 “Kat” living on the same time? The lady at the end is the 2nd. Not the original with her son that came back to the boat.

For all the hate traxxas gets, their cars really aren't that bad. As long as you don't look at them from a racers eyes, and you brought it to bash, theyre fun just like anything else.

In the last thread you ask how I became a mod. Almost 10 years ago, wow time flies, I asked and begged the powers that be for a carolinas forum. We talked and they eventually agreed, but on the grounds that I moderate it. That was the caveat. As for editing threads, I don't have any powers outside of the regional section. So my powers, I dont have any. If a thread gets closed or deleted here, it wasnt me and I have nothing to do with it. I can still view removed threads, but I cant resurrect them or anything.

Its just a title. Im not even middle management. If this were a McDonald's, Im the lowly manager thats sent to deal with the Karens when the fries are cold or a burger didnt have pickles.

I give you free coupons or kiss your @$$ and get you hot fries on the house, then tell you to have a nice day. Haha
