For all the Backyard Bashers out there what will you be running next summer? I'll be bashing a Traxxas Revo once the snow leaves since I live in Mid-Michigan.

I'm lucky enough to live in a generally snow-free area, so the same thing I bash now. An E_MAXX:D I love it!

Hey mxe, why such a snow hating person?
Me like snow.
I go around the street and since they took out the jumps (bike track like the one in the thread video) to make way for a bank, it's all I got.

He doesn't like snow (I don't either) because we get it all winter, but I guess so do you. You run the risk of ruining your electronics too.

Actually I love snow. I just don't want it steady cause then I can't drive my e. We occasionally get 1-3 in of snow, and when we do I love it. Go 4 wheeling in my 1:1 and 4 wheeler, the works. But that only happens once every few years:( We had 11 inches one time, that was awesome! Everything was shut down for like 2 weeks!

I have never seen snow fall before. I've seen it on the ground, but I've never seen it fall. Hopefully when I go to Reno this year, I'll see some.:)

Savage, revo and hb buggy.
I just prep'd the buggy for storing over the winter yesterday (had the day off). Glad I did too. I forgot to treat it with ARO a month ago when I ran it last... upon inspection, there was a lot of rust and goo in my more OS 21 RG...
2 hours, a wire brush, sandpaper, brake cleaner, new crank bearings and about 200 q-tips later, it was as good as new... My rear main bearing was shot. Not just rusty, but horribly worn. I can't beleive it ran as good as it did!
The savage on the other hand will have to wait for some TLC, but I did heavily ARO and clean the engine the week after I ran it last.
The revo on the other hand, is relatively new to me. Just got it a month or so ago used. I've been taking it out when it's around 25-30 or so. It's supposed to be in the upper 30's tomorrow... I'll be out bashing in the snow!
