View Full Version : One happy camper.. Ry got her sport.
It got here today. She was going to wait up to show me. But fell asleep on the couch holding it. I wanted to get a pic of that, But kell woke her up to soon. She is now one happy lil lady.
We will try to get it broken in this weekend. Hopefuly the Ofna pipe and Header will be here by then. Dumped the stock tires and went with Galdiators. I will leave the EZ Starter for a few runs and then outfit it with a pull starter. Roy choose silver for the A arms and towers. That will be placed on the high priorty list. LOL

ok, a SPORT....got it. nothing against the sport but i sat here looking at the picture trying to figure what was going on, my rustler doesn't look like that...then i re read it and saw it was actually a sport. good looking car. don't i remember a custom chasis that c-gurl was showing off a little while ago? how old is Ry?
I am building Ry a N Rustler that is turning out to be a killer truck. But some of the parts wont get available until the middle of Dec or the first of Jan. It will be an all Aluminum, Picco powered, Team Yamaha race rig. LOL
So I decided to get her a Sport to play with until then. Sort of a trainer truck so she could drive one of her own before it gets to cold here to bash very much.
Ry is my youngest daughter and is 5.

Aww ... I bet she is so tickled about having it now. I bet she can't wait until she gets to drive it. I know I coukdn't wait when I got my NR. I ended up running it a tank on my lunch break and then finishing the break-in after I got off. Hope she enjoys the truck. She's one lucky girl!

one word of caution! i have a nitro sport and got a stinger pipe, the gears will bust! even with stock pipe i'd be cautious. a slipper clutch is a very wise investment for a sport, great truck!:)

I was reading in my dad's yearbook (from MANY years ago) ;) and one of his girlfriends addressed a note to 'Earl the Squirrel'. (Earl is his middle name)

Is it me or do those wheels look they are toed out ??
11-15-2001, 04:18 PM
flyer i see them toed out to but i guess its just the camera angle
11-15-2001, 04:58 PM
i think they are toed out.....they come toed in, so even if the camera angle was a bit off, the wheels would at most look straight.
11-15-2001, 05:31 PM

Those are deffinetly toed out.
The rear a-arms are on backwards. (you can tell from the little notch that is cut out on the front of them, it should be in the back.)
The rear tires were toed out. The A arms and the mounts were on the wrong sides. It is now straighend out.
She got her Pipe and header today and will replace the stock one before we run it .
LOL. Belive me I know about clutches. It will have a slipper clutch installed when I replace the pipe. I will also replace all of the turn buckle ends with HPI Ball connectors.

hey Les, why dont you put one of your other slipper clutches on Ry's Sport and plan on testing out the new Robinson Racing Slipper on the super Hoped-up in-progress truck? i am very anxious to see the new Robinson Racing Slipper. i wonder if it willl be worth the $30?
just a thought
