My Protrac Slash is now complete!!
After a few quick spins and launches off my mega ramp, once again, my old shock problem resurfaced. The problem being that I can't get through a reasonable amount of time without bending them or beaking them in some way. I decided after much debate, to get a set of Traxxas aluminum Big Bores. Hopefully they will stand up to my abuse. I also decided to get a set of the RPM light buckets for the rear bumper. I'm sure they will eventually fail, but I hooked up a set of Mag Light LED's to a AA rechargeable battery and made a structure for it all to sit on. I had all the stuff laying around to hook up the lights so why not?
Donor cheapie Harbor Freight battery
Heated and bent some Plastruct to make a platform for the battery and wiring to attatch to....
A little ugly, but all is hidden....
Can you see me now?
