Then I bought some models....idk why..i just did....

What happens when you figure $565 + money for parts on the car is preety freakin good for a little over 3 months of payments, and go crazy at the hobby shop.

Toyota - Probably my return to modding in a month or so...
Dodge - MA010 chassis, need the extension kit...but i mean..can you say first truck ma010 ever?
Ford - Basically trying to semi-replicate my dads Expedition, will probably mount it on a rolling gen1 chassis i found tucked away in a model box. The lenses were already smoked..which was ***...because they just dont look right lol...made the hitch out of some tubing and a ball of tamiya putty...

also bought some tools and materials...but since i went out and blew all but $35 on hobby junk...gotta go back to pay for teh 300ZX lol........

The Expedition is mounted on a rolling Gen1 chassis I found in a model box, didnt figure it would sell good so I just kept it.

Its just a side project atm....

Then of course the TT-01, basically have to wait till summer to have any fun with it, but i dont plan on getting rid of it any time soon.


Mmk, basically the two rc's i'm not getting rid of. The TT-01 and AWD. Just took some pics for RCU, so I figured i'd put them on here too...

Preety dusty from sitting around....*** cold weather...

And the Dodge Ram 50..lmao..early stages of the ghetto extension...deff. not the final version...

The Ram50 isnt really a priority, just something i thought would be funny, i'll get to it one day.

The Evo in the early stages of paint.

First few coats of light gunmetal...painting in a dirty autobody shop isn't always the best idea, so you can see where I sanded out the trash..but it'll all turn out good...

No way to make a front clip for this thing lol...well...I could..but this was way easier, front ends major short

Still have to open the wheel wells up a bit in the front, i've done alot of shaving but they still rub. I just cut some bits of lexan and glued them to the body to make the mid-body clips.


lol, statement from color0 about it, its very true too...

Color0:
I like how you pulled that off with almost zero effort, lol... it's a far cry from two years ago.

Then just some random pics I took

mmk
got kinda bored and started taking pics lol..

lol..so yeah.


I was kinda missing my xtruck, because it was the only xmod I really liked, so I took advantage of the cheap clearance xmod prices and went out with some of my b'day money and bought a New Titan, which is currently in the paint process and is due to recieve some lipo's i'll be testing for a fellow GSR member, but i'm doing a few projects that should be revealed in later weeks with it also until the guy gets the lipo's ready.

New Nissan Titan Starter Kit - Bearings, 4WD, Stage 2, Lift Kit, and Suspension Kit installed.

So yeah, thats where i'm at, just kinda posted it to show you guys i'm not dead or anything.
Also, everything was quoted from GSR, where more of my stuff is posted up, but nothing i'm putting out into public yet lol..
and, I havent put the 3 Racing extension through the paces yet, since i've not mounted any bodies to my MA that fit those wheelbases, but once I do i'll give a review, and I finally got my TX, the AWD is really fun to drift etc lol, and the paint on it is almost done, I keep getting sidetracked with my other projects.

Wow, very nice. Bit of everything there 'eh? Nice Titan. I was hoping to buy exactly the same set up but for a f-150 and just ram it around in the dry dirt and over rocks and speed bumps. That should be good fun. ;)

Thanks man!
lol yeah, I guess i've got a bit of everything. I've always had a soft spot for the Xtruck, probably the best thing rs's ever sold that i've bought in terms of rc..
