    some more big air vids and pix, xlmt style

    Did some awesome bashing today, also took a few minutes of vid/pix for fun. So here's some action shots + the video I extracted it from following.
    this was to show you guys the span I was trying to clear. Got it done a few time but broke the eyelet on a shock cap at the end of my 3rd pack.
    I like this first shot, can't even see the jump I come off of lol. Some got a minute, you could scale it out but I'd guess 40'+



    Ground level and coming at ya


    And the front flip action pic from the end of this vid

    Promatch 3s battery pushing that truck. The slipper is loose to be light on the drive train, I have no choice but to hit the trigger and land it at these nights so I loosened it up. I have plans on getting a set of badlands/3.2, that combined with these batteries waking up after a few runs (6-9) I bet I can get another 10'-15'. That will probably be the best tire for this purpose. I do have aka for racing this track but its on the standard sc rim. It would help with landing these jumps cause it robs me of size/cushion and size/mass forin air rotation or attitude.

    Dude, your in Texas, how cold could it be? Lol its 20 here and about 5 at my sons house. Im trying to get in the mindset to go out sense around 8am, not looming good either lol.
    Sometime this week, after my promatch batts are broke in and delivering full power, I'll put some badlands on and grab a 100' tape. I want to see just how far I'm going. Maybe I can come with a story pole to gusts hight also.
    Thanks for watching guys, im having a blast with this build. Its turning out to be the #2 of my rc experience to date.

    Yup, snapped the eyelet on the losi shock. The full plastic parts kit for all plastic throughout a full losi ten shock set are $6. That's cheaper than the rear tower so I'll give the plastic another shot before I install the alloy caps I picked up. If it holds up to the bashing around the neighborhood, then I'll through them on this week and buy a backup tower just in case.
