    Why thank you! Clearly you're an optimist. I think a pessimist might focus on the somewhat low run time to elapsed time ratio. :)

    Gorgeous!

    By the way, did that wheelie bar require any modification to install? I'm looking for one for my LS-2.

    Cool, good info on the aftermarket stuff, thanks.

    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.

    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.

    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 :))?
