Sorry, I just stopped checking this forum much after shadow tried to shut our portion down. I got the wraith up and running only to blow the motor the first time out.:mrgreen:

Also remember that I have a friend's kit sitting in my place waiting for him to build it as well. We are BOTH waiting on a particular handmade motor to be delivered.

ShortBus is back from Meh-He-Co now!

Even made it through the hurricane down there Wednesday! Wasn't really all that bad, though. 85 mph winds and hard rain, but that's about it. The buildings at the resort are built to Florida class 3 hurricane standards, so they're pretty stout. My A/C did go out during the storm, though. Hotter than a m-f'er in there Thursday night! Couldn't take off enough clothes.

Well.....not exactly for my Wraith, but provided I didn't get beat to the punch, I just paid for a NIP set of Dark Soul 1.9 beadlocks for my Losi MRC. For the price I paid for them, I'm pretty excited, especially when you look at what they retail for.

Hey....aren't we all a little anti-retail? If I can find a deal on something I want, I'd much rather get it for less than pay retail for it. Just like my GoPro Hero2. Retails for $299 + Tax everywhere.....picked mine up NIB for $225 and a drive to Allen. :smokin:

Didn't you have an MRC Pro, Billy?

What tires were you running on it? I'm having trouble trying to figure out which ones will be best for crawling. I'm considering some Rover red dots, but I don't really know much about tires yet.

Suggestions?

Brett - I did have a MRC Pro and I did have red dot Rovers. I really iiked the Rovers.

Wanted to chime in.

I had purchased the Chisels before hearing about Rovers. The difference is night and day, much more 'sticky' and would just seem to grab better. I would definitely suggest the Rovers if you plan on getting some tires.
