I still think you need an Axial of some flavor...

Took the kids out to launch rockets yesterday and brought my Wraith, Ruckus 2WD, and the AMP MT. Let me just say, that Wraith will drive through and over EVERYTHING!!!

My scx10 has been a blast. I've got a Bomber I'm building and it looks to be more fun. I just made a purchase, for a coworker that doesn't do Paypal, for a used Axial Yeti. I'll have it for 2 weeks before I meet back up with him. These Yetis look like they'll be a blast, too.

There are some stellar used Axial's out there. I paid $225 for this Yeti and it's RTR aside from a charger. The guy even through in a 3s 5000mAh battery.

Well, the profit sharing payout arrived in my bank account... I totally forgot about the significant portion that disappears to taxes, etc. So instead of splurging on a new car, I went out and bought a low profile Savox 1251MG servo for my TLR 22.

There is no new car in the forseeable future. I have, however, taken note of your recommendations and I'll be keeping an eye out for good deals on an Axial car.

I always do a double take on those. 39% taxes..... Just put it on my check as normal pay dang it!!!

Glad you got something you can enjoy out of it anyway!

That does kind of stink. You can always check the classifieds though for a cheaper roller. If I remember correctly, I think I saw one on Ultimate RC for a pretty good price. I think it was a Yeti.

We used to get quarterly 'performance' bonuses based on company costs for repairs and injuries. We've had neither this year but come payday for July our bonus wasn't there. When we start asking about it they tell us it's been canceled until further notice or the economy picks up(for the oil/gas sector). I was hoping for a new set of tires for the SUV with that...oh well. I scored(stole) 5 used Bomber wheels/tires/foams for $30. Bad thing is I don't even need them. They make their way onto one of these Amp MTs my kids have.

I've been hitting the sale sections on RcGroups and RcCrawler lately. Bomber chassis, ar60s, Losi Micros, 1/10 Yeti, TA SC10 roller, etc. All that this year...past 4 months actually. The only issue is no warranty like fleaBay offers, just the PayPal agreement. I'll only buy from established members with a 1000 or so posts and several years to get there.

Ah. I'm on RC Groups, too. I'll have to scroll down a little farther and check out the sale forums. I love good deals. :)

My SC10 roller turned out to not be so great. Both front and rear A arms and pivot blocks are worn til sloppy. $40 repair. The tires were bald and glued on, another $30 repair.

I put a 3s in it today and got it to 38mph on asphalt. It was quite sketchy since I have'nt refreshed the suspension parts yet.

I have the DHK Hunter BL 4x4 and love it. I did some major mods to make it even better then when it came out of the box. Changed the servo to a Savox for better control as I have bigger tires on it.
