    A lot of great info here...I, too, love the bug shell. Standing still or at speed, you made it look awesome!

    I think I'm going to have to plan a roadtrip to Saskatoon someday!! You Canadians know how to have some fun! I'll even spring for some of the liquid refreshments!!

    Well I had it out with all the new goodies, love the new shocks; it eats up the bumps better now; and the center diff was great until the new big bearing motor mount bearing seized and ate the front of the diff off....
    So I also decided to set it up for racing, I bought a new body and messed up the paint job (meh; oh well), picked up a set of mounted Proline Gladiators in soft. To repair the diff. I bought a Fast Lane Machine diff cup. It rained on race day; but I'll be ready for the next event.

    Yes; you are correct. 👍
    Can't wait to see how it behaves on the track; it will be a learning experience for me too.

    I've been busy with father husband duties.
    I also stopped working weekends in January; so I have two less days to mess around with it.

    Are they building one? Or just waiting a while before you start racing?

    Its been built for a while I just don't get a drivers license until then. Do you have another truck to bash where this one is set up for racing? Nice picture.

    No need to be sad about that; good things come with time.
    Nope this is it for the Slash. I have an old E-MAXX and a 1/16 E-REVO with far too much money and time into it to play with.

    Looks good Clint! So you're hanging out at the Off Road club these days? Sounds like fun. You should convert your HCG to a LCG for racing!

    I've been hanging out that the SARCAR On-Road club. I'm building a few 1/10 Touring cars to get back into racing too

    I've just been hanging around with Aaron.
    That's awesome! I remember you telling me stories of carpet racing.

    Im doing the LCG chassis soon.

    I don't know Aaron, do I?

    Good plan on the LCG, you will be amazed how much better it handles! I did not know until I drove Jordan's HCG, I bought him a LCG conversion kit PDQ after that

    I'll have to come out to watch, and maybe run.

    You know Aaron; he races in the truck series at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Clint: What tires are you using on the Auto Clearing track? One of my kids is interest in trying racing - which for me could mean building up a couple of mean Slashes from Stampedes.

    Hmm, Can't think of him, but I'm sure I would know him to see him

    Bought a Slash 4X4; now to make it bullet proof.







    Painted up a new basher body, all my others are pretty much toast, Turned out pretty decent.

    Looking good. I really want to get the 79 f250 body. Have to trash one of mine first though.

    I like the 66 F100 but the lines of the 79 F250 should help it not crack as easily as the box shaped 66

    Cleaning up the garage and I found this in my stuff from last years trip to SEMA in Vegas; I put it up next to my shelf in the garage where I keep the Traxxas R/C's.


    Traxxas has a great booth set up every year I've gone. 🏼

    I've found the 66 to be incredibly strong - just needs a bit of shoe goo:

    Do you shoe goo the body before it's bashed? As apposed to repairs

    Man, I really like the way your truck looks. Sweet rig.

    Side note, how did the traxxas 17mm hold up on your MIPs?

    Yes 100% - better to prevent rather than cure (I'm a doctor by trade).

    Always do ALL corners of a shell, any known weak points, and around wheel arches. Makes it a bit heavier but I will commonly get a bashing season out of a shell

    Thank you for you kind comments. I don't use Traxxas 17mm on my MIPs - the wheels are DP wheels with a fancy nut cover supplied with the wheels - stock hexes - never had a problem on 2s

    BrabusBen thanks. I have been thinking about a plasti dip body job from the inside, anyone have input on this as far as durability?

    The main advantage of SG&DWT over plastidip is that, I believe, the cross fibre of dry wall tape combined with shoe goo makes like a flexible fibreglass. The plastidip only has the plastic component so may not be as resistant to shearing/tearing forces. Shoe goo and dry wall tape is messy but very cheap, easy to do, and, most importantly, effective.

    Some people have used truck bed lining spray - this seems to be effective (see YouTube) but can only be applied to a naked shell (unpainted) - you can have it in any colour as long as it's black

    Sorry, I just looked back, it was Clint with the trx adapters:

    I tapped the holes to accept 4mm set screws, there are two on each adaptor so they can seat against the flat spots on either side of my MIP axels, it went well; I'll be installing and testing them tomorrow.

    I repair with the shoe goo dwt method but by then the lexan is damaged. It is a great method. I think the next shell I will do the prevention of damage as you do. Thanks Dr....."An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of maintenence" someone once said.

    Thank you, it really is a good idea. I have 6 shells all SG&DWT pre-first run all are still very usable, none have more than very minor cracks (* these ones have NO cracks):
    - Proline 14RS*
    - Proline F100 (66) (one small crack behind door post where I forgot to SG&DWT - now repaired)
    - Proline 2012 Ford Focus*
    - Proline Toyota Tundra*
    - Proline Flow-Tek
    - Proline Full Fender Baja*

    REALLY IMPORTANT: Allow paint to dry for at least 24h before applying SG&DWT as otherwise the paint sometimes "melts" and ruins all your hard work
