Default check this ride out guys

Just thought I would share this cool new track toy I just bought, used.

Has a 24 hp Honda v-twin, it will dig right into anything I have here.
You stand up behind it and ride along.

It's got this cool leveler attachment that goes on the front, that acts like a huge rake, my arms love it already!

Think I'll be spending more time on this, then driving my Losi 8.

Life is good!

Thats cool Dave.
It looks like it is better than a bobcat because you dont have to crawl in and out all the time.

Yeah,
I tried out a Bobcat last weekend, and it just to big and tears things up to much just driving it around.

This thing is just perfect.

I can even pull my drag around with it..

I never knew they made stuff like this till just a few days ago.

I'm thinking a few metal brackets, and some 1/4 scale servos

don't forget that there is a fine line between "public property" and "privet property" I don't think the kids will like it when you rip there sandbox up

You MUST convert it, 20S lipo should be sufficient.

Probably but you would need 60 of those packs in parallel to get any work done

why lipos, i have a motor.

i was looking at my controls today on the loader, it would be a
piece of cake to hook some 400 oz. servo to the levers.

you just breath on them to get them to work, so i know the servo
would drive it no problem.

i would love to be able to dial some expo in to these.
that would be the only real advantage.

or i could just walk around it and run it with my airplane TX,
better yet, i could just sit on the driver stand.

i just might have to do it, just to do it.

Until you roll this thing over, then you'd be wishing you hadn't fallen off.

this thing amazed me how stable it is.
the weight is really low, even with a full load it's really stable.

I've run it up and down almost all the jumps on the track already.

absolutely perfect for the track.
