Awesome looking trucks ViperZ love the colored schemes on each individual one
Received some new boots for the Ultimate today.
Duratrax Lockups. They look to be similar in class as the Proline Badlands, which is basically an aggressive off road tire. Maybe just a step down from the pure spike of the Badlands. I think they should work pretty well as an all-rounder. I'll get them mounted up and take for for a rip.
Left to Right: 1/8 Lockups, 1/8 Badlands Knock-offs, 3.0/2.2 Badlands
very nice boots
Thanks Simon, they are a very nice tire. Of note the compound, C2, does seem slightly softer than the Badlands in nub flexion, it will be interesting to see how long they really last.
Well then, we'll see how these hold up
So probably no Defrost for me this weekend. It's been raining all week, and is suppose to rain all weekend. I need to swap out a set of winter to summer tires and do a brake job on my Nissan X-Trail, so will end up doing that instead.
And finish painting Rally-2

No, Defrost is still on, I'm canceling on going. It snowed last night and this morning. Although its melted now its been raining all day, more tomorrow with snow and rain through the weekend. High of 7C. I just don't want to be caught out on the highway with the W speed rated tires and snow
Yes, I still have my X-Trail, as well as all my other cars... I just can find a reason to sell them and just enjoy them all too much
If the weather co-operates I could have some body action. I just put on it's second coat, but it needs a lot more.
Here is a taste of the action
I like that booth and have been discussing booth design with my buddy. I would only need a smallish one with a fan to suck out the air through a window.
I stopped by my LHS during lunch today looking for some Tamiya paint. They didn't have the TS-31 color I looking for, but I did find something else....
A Proline Desert Raid Body! I've been after one of these for some time now, but was not in a panic to get one, it seems they will eventually come your way
I really like the tuned SUV style of this body with the large pronounced flares! My plans are to paint it up for the Ultimate, with a higher CG look to it, but then another part of me is thinking of it for my Rally-2. It will most likely be for the Ultimate.
Now if I can stop queuing up projects I can't seem to stop
Here is a finished Desert Raid
I knew it was coming after seeing the Bowler Nemesis thread.
You beat me to it good sir, oh well were trying to get the down state house ready to move into so I suppose the hobby will be limited to race weekend this summer.
Looking forward to seeing the paint work.
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
Yep, had to do it, it was like it was calling me
Summer is here and I have too many irons in the camp fire already, RC and non
I like this thread, partly because there's so much photos and it's fun to scroll through when you're bored, and they're all hd pictures! Keep them coming, and you should do this on a 2wd slash too!
Awesome. The slash is a great car
Can't wait to see it painted! Your work is great! How were the SC sized badlands before you went 1/8th?
Slash 4x4 LCG+(rolling)HCG, Slash 2wd(raptor)
yeah this is one of the nicest threads I have read. Work of art and very informative, nice dedication to rc
Live life to the fullest
Hey, thanks for all your great words about my thread Guys!!
I will try to get more videos, I just wished I had the time to put into them for a more polished production
I really haven't had a lot of time to bash, but I certainly have had time to build as I have a few projects going, however I can;t post about them here as they are non TRX related. I will try to get the new body painted up, and or maybe some new action pictures and video.
Good job to you that finished your classes, I hope you enjoy your summer!
Traxxasvlxbasher, that's a cool looking Youtube channel, I'll be sure to check out, and get some tips

Good to hear you fixed the understeer! I'm using 50,000 front and and back, not by design rather just because that's what I had on hand
It seems to work well enough for my bashing fests...
How's it going viper? No new updates lately, everything alright?
Very nice build thread viper! Seriously makes me want to rethink every idea I've had. Very clean and well thought out.
How is the rpm light bracket holding up? I want to get it but I jump mine a lot and not sure how it will hold up.
Again amazing thread buddy! I'm also reading up on your rally build and now I want one of those
Apparently he's MIA again.It was June since his last post on this thread.Chime in so we can see what you have been up to!!!
This was such a great thread...too bad it ended.
If you still read the forum ViperZ, your builds are all amazing!
Wow...just flipped through this entire thread. Holy bajeezus these are sweet!
