    Sounds like you got some excellent use out of your fleet of hawks, well done!

    Have you remedied your output yoke problem?

    I'm currently running stock metal gears, I think from a Rustler. Pretty cool that they were compatible!

    Man, I missed R/C. How did I let 4.5 years go by?

    Since then, I've had a little fun with my LS-II, but not enough. It culminated in a trip to Outer Banks three years ago.

    Thanks. Wasn't too bad, and a geek like me enjoys the time spent anyway. :p Also the work naturally followed what I was already doing to figure out how to upgrade my Hawk-II to an LS-II.

    I second that. I see those go for around $50. There's definitely demand for the right price - I see them come and go often.

    Spring Run

    After sitting out the entire winter...it still works. WOO!

    We hit a local park for a quick run. Valerie was along with a pocket digicam to grab a few casual pics for me.

    There isn't a whole lot that you'll be able to use from newer stuff, in my experience. The most useful and surprisingly part, though, is that Rustler VXL steel gears and revo-spec slipper clutch are...

    Very nice, Marv.

    Myself, I use a Rustler black gear cover on the LS-II. It's not the most perfect fit in the world, but it works (and it clears the stock titan shaft, too!).

    Not too familiar with the layout of the bullet, but I have to give a nod to the Castle Creations Sidewinder. The 5700KV I put in my LS-II gets her up to 40 MPh (estimated) with fairly conservative...

    No kidding! Would have never expected a Bullet to be wider than the Hawk. How's the weather up there, no chance for an outdoor excursion any time soon (at least, without waterproofing :))?

    Why, when a second truck magically appears, of course :p

    Well done! Looks great with the Jato tires. I love the Alias rears myself. Didn't know you can bolt on the newer style transmissions so easily.

    Beautiful. By the way, does the SRT have a wider stance than the LS-II, or is it just the narrow chassis throwing me?
