    My K5 Scaler RIP

    sad day today my friends. i have decided that my K5 will no longer hit the trails. from the day i started the build it has brought me joy and good times. i would like to thank everyone that had a part in the build...

    mike - your white K5 is what got me to go out and build a scaler.
    carlos - for building one with me and the spare parts a i needed to finish.
    eric - for all the great pics you took while i was crawling with it.
    matt - for the kick ass side mirrors that you made that lasted up until our last trip to crawlapalooza.
    cory - for the sick rear bumper/spare tire mount.
    gabe - for all the decals.
    wally - for the most recent updated delrin skid and shock brackets.

    and to everyone else that had kind words during the years..

    thanks!!!

    now on to some pics.

    It's just time to build an updated scaler. I ran out of tlt spares and the scx10 kits are too cool not to build one.

    Who knew I look damn good in pictures... :rofl:

    Ric only finally listened to me after the 5 months Ive been telling him to put this contraption to rest, lol. j/k Ric, twas fun. 2 ESCs, 2 servos, 2 rxs, god knows how many motors lol...it served well.

    Get them vids from the Wheels for the Wounded up, show them the what u did to make ur ESC blow up.

    It was AWESOME!

    plans are an scx10 based scaler. body and the direction of the build haven't been decided yet.

    right now i have three ideas.

    FJ
    chevy truggy
    toyota truggy

    i'm leaning towards the trail class for sure.

    Cool... I'd love to see an FJ (I nearly did one myself), but all sound pretty nice!
