HAve you already ordered your Wraith??

Mine is back up and running. Rear locking diff came in today. RPP hobby is amazing. I ordered Monday - via REGULAR MAIL (not Priority). Arrived today (Wed).

USPS must be doing their job pretty good as well.

My Wraith is currently down waiting for parts, so I can't make it. Besides, I may have family coming in this evening. And the weekend is booked with a trip to the water park in The Colony and then installing a new tire carrier on my Jeep Sunday.

Have fun and get some good video!

No worries, Billy. I'll shoot some $$ your way shortly to cover postage. I can really only run 1 battery at a time anyway. And I'm sure by the time it runs down I'll be done playing for a bit anyway.

Get any pics? How did the links on the Bully hold up?

bbking9
07-20-2012, 12:39 AM
Links held up great. Steering servo sometimes did not want to turn left for some odd reason. Need to look at that issue. never has done that before.

I stayed till 8 00. MikeTron came out after I left - so I think he;s coming out tomrrow.

You coming when you get off work right??

Got a few pics I'll post up. nothing special though.

Yes, I should be able to come out tonight. I'm leaving the office at 645 today. I'll try to be at Arbor Hills at 7:30. Man this new schedule bites, can't wait to find a new gig.

ShortBus, we'll get some video footage tonight.

I'm in the market for a new gig myself. Graduated UNT in May and now I want a career...not just a job. Place I really want to work is right by The Shops @ Willowbend....so right down the road from Arbor Hills, which means I could play at lunch.

bbking9
07-20-2012, 04:30 PM

ace138
07-20-2012, 04:53 PM
No new body on the RTR, that pic was snagged before all the abuse.

mikeTRON,

You can drive the Slantbelly alittle tonight if you want. I wanna get some footage of the new Bully on the block.

mikeTRON
07-20-2012, 05:02 PM

mikeTRON
07-20-2012, 06:16 PM
It is clear for the most part. 10% chance of rain for the rest of the night.

I'm headed out now.

ace138
07-20-2012, 06:33 PM
yeah it's not raining at my house anymore (my place is 3 minutes away from Arbor Hills).

Good times! We'll get to crawl more next time. Sorry, I was a little late and didn't get to do much filming.

Here is a little teaser for the Team Misfit crawler Movie coming out soon. :mrgreen:

SHADOW
07-21-2012, 12:31 PM

bbking9
07-21-2012, 01:54 PM
i took us out and never could find our usual spots. dont let me lead anymore....

i couldnt find "the stump"...

SHADOW
07-21-2012, 03:04 PM
See i told ya you got to look for the stump lol thats funny Bill . say you up for a night run when it cools off , im not sure when the park closes any idea ?

bbking9
07-21-2012, 03:16 PM
Im not sure. But I do not want to get locked in.

Damn stump. I thought you were gonna put an orange cone or something by it !!!

SHADOW
07-21-2012, 04:18 PM
I left you some bread crumbs :mrgreen::lol2:

SHADOW
07-21-2012, 04:19 PM

Great time tonight guys. Glad Stuart and Mike were able to meet up and also get to meet Ace and the SLANT BELLY !!

Thanks for letting me drive your two trucks! I really appreciate it!

I think I want a crawler more than a wraith now :eek2: LoL

so I think I need to buy a wraith, build it while i research crawlers to maybe find a good used one or piece on together...

Nice video Ace!

bbking9
07-21-2012, 07:41 PM
MikeTRON, I think you were driving my Bully when Ace was filming. I extended the wheelbase to 12.5" tonight.

The Wraith is a no-brainer. Again - I still have the esc, motor and small battery if you want it.

The crawler has more options as far as chassis,axles, etc...

mikeTRON
07-21-2012, 10:39 PM
Yeah I think I was diving lol

The wheelbase WAS 12.0" correct? I bet it can get that one we tried for 15 minutes now! I think a video is in order lol

I do want a wraith but I dont think I have decided on a crawler yet. I'll take those parts for now :) until I upgrade

bbking9
07-21-2012, 11:24 PM
You got em.

Sh0rtBus
07-23-2012, 09:04 AM
I need to make a run with you guys now that my Wraith is back together. I think I have the faulty short shaft issue in the rear axle, but my rig still works for now, so I may as well run it until it breaks, right?

When's the next Arbor Hills run?

bbking9
07-23-2012, 10:04 AM
Next run at Arbor Hills ?? That depends - when is good for you ???

We have found goin in early evening is nice and cool - but dont wannt get
locked in :Shaking:

I normally get off work @ 3:30 P.M., so I can usually come out whenever after that. Just need to make arrangements to have my kiddo picked up from daycare by 6:30, which my wife can usually do.

Lets see what we can work up this week.

Im gonna start a new thread on this so it doesnt get lost in the shuffle here.
