Debating on throwing up on the front bumper again, It worked well and with the planned fpv mod keeping radio noise away from the 5.8 is going to be critical.

Nice fvp crawling would be cool...I have a couple of cams for my 1:1, one of them lives on my dash and so has become "invisible" to me day to day. I always remember about the camera after we finish a trail + one mine shaft ... It will be neat to see some scale perspective of crawling

I really want to try it, just waiting for dryer weather. Everything is soggy to say the least.

I installed my long rear drive shaft, and mounted up my antenna on the bumper and took her for a spin up and down my test steps. she doesn't have a lot of flex, but that does not hold her back at all. She went right up with zero drama.


However I don't have reverse any more. Got reverse twice, then nothing.

It'll be awesome. Looking forward to dryer weather myself... I was just musing to myself after "re-re-re-programing" my kid's esc (standard Traxxas vx5) that I miss potentiometer set ups of yor. Set them up once no on/off switch and apart from a total meltdown event, never needing to touch them again. Seems if my kids hold down the button too irregularly to turn them on then it enters "set up mode" and needs to be run through set up before exiting I loathe the one button for on/off and program for that reason..., actually I prefer no on/off button on my esc's at all -that's what the battery plug is for right? Lol. Hopefully you get your reverse issue resolved 4x4

Thanks. My first truck was a 86 F150 4x4 that I beat to death. 250k on her when I traded her off, and still running hard. She was metallic Navy blue and had 16" Chrome wagon wheels and 32" tires. Ford 9" rear and Dana 44 TTB up front.

I miss that truck. When i paint up my second body I will put her on a chassis with the "honcho" wheels.. In case you didn't notice, they are Chrome 5 lug wagon wheels. Just need to find a milder small tire to run.

I wanted a big SAS'ed on 35-37" tires truck when I was a teen driving that poor truck. So Bubbles is kind of a would have, should have build.

Anyway...





Vertigo, got her spare relocated, and a 27t brushed motor installed.

Sounds like a nice truck... I love the old school wheels. Back when form followed function. 20" inch rims, recessed lugs and intricately machined (hard to clean) convolutions make me want to in my mouth lol. I was saving up for a similar era full size Bronco but ended up with a two seat converible that I still have today. Who knows how different things would have been if I got the Bronco instead

Some of your scenery looks somewhat like ours. I took the kids for a drive in kind of a small scale vista to yours


Take care, Mark

Do you already have one in mind?... If you're lacking for space you could always install a "y" harness from one of your existing channels on a switch? I don't know how many channels you are using? If you have a third channel and you have a broken servo you could covert it to continous rotation and control the winch motor instead of the servo motor... The pc board on a servo is pretty tiny... Just a thought... You probably got it covered, I'm sure .

Oh no....

I have plenty of room, and 2 extra channels on my rx, 3 on my Tx. Just have to pick one up, and mount it in a location all the wires reach.

I have to wiggle it in financially....
