    Trying to plan another bashing at Ft. Stevens in August 5th, which is on a Sunday. I can be there between 12:30 - 1:00 pm.

    I like your vid mate...I just googled Ft Stevens as I though it may have something to do with American history...very interesting history you are bashing on there.

    I loved to bash my truck with you guys...looks like you had so much fun.

    PS. get a vid of you clearing the wall with a back flip
    Rock n Rolla !

    Tracer031 and I had a blast....... on the way home he was looking up how much it would cost him to go from his MERV to a full size....... Then I pointed out that he is the only one that did not break anything and he was running all day!!!!! We will be there again and again and again it is too much fun and the fact that we have permission to be there is even better. I wont be able to make it this Sunday (I have a car show to go to) But I will be there the sunday after that!!!

    I had a good time as well! I only broke 1 plastic rod end. I don't think that was too bad, lol! I'm actually very satisfied with my trucks performance on Sunday. I feel much better about it
    My LST2 diffs held up well. Sorry to See HotRod's diff break while we were there. I feel his pain!!!

    hey thanks for the vid and pics i had the best time bashing with you guys.as for the diff i am used to it.its a 10th scale diff in a 1/8th scale truck but like i said today i have a lead on a guy that will hopefully make us so aluminum bulkheads that are modified to fit the losi diffs and then we'll be able to bash all day and night lol.thanks to everyone there for making it the best sunday i have had in a long time.cant wait for the next time.

    Beadlocks just can't cut it, have to CA glue. Who striped the spur.
    easy mod, get a longer bolt & cut it down.

    Thanks Brewers
    All credit goes to evilalf for the awesome pics!
    I was actually running the trenchers, lol! They were put away for a long time but I put them back on since I did the Losi LST2 diff mod. So far, no problems, even with these trenchers

    But your are still correct, because hotrod was the one that broke his diff, and he was using Trencher X's
    Lol!

    I'm done with bead locks
    It's a shame, I have a beautiful set of used and flawless looking axial's but they really suck
    Building something else which will only be a 4S vehicle so I'll use them on that.

    i've had diff problems even with the stock wheels and tires that it comes with so i dont think its the trenchers its the 10th scale diffs in a 1/8th scale truck IMO i just wish traxxas would listen to us and make the bulks and diffs for us.
