    Well I got off my lazy butt today and installed the lights into the TF2 and put the body all back together... in these pics it is running off a 5 cell hump battery just to show they do work.... tomorrow I will install the body on the chassis and check out how that works......

    Me and my son Jason went to a crawl event put on by the local Club, everyone there was SUPER nice and my son actually won the 2.2 class with his lightly modded RedCat Everest 10 truck, I didnt run as there was no 1.55 class for my truck but I did get into the AWESOME Raffle and won some great swag, an ECO servo and a tube of protec grease for diffs, a headlight for my head for night crawls and stickers galore, water bottle and lanyard, to top it off I also won a body lift for the TrailFinder2 made by RC4WD, HOW COOL IS THAT !!!!!!!

    The little scale pallets you see are from my sons work, they come with post it notes and are perfect with my truck.....

    Nice score of waffle wins Jam. Scale truck is lookin good too. I've always wanted to get a crawler. More purpose built than looks which is why I'd want to get a MOA crawler. But, those are harder to find since everybody is goin for the "scale look" these days.

    I put on the body lift I won for the truck and I must say it does give it that offroad crawler look a bit more than stock does....

    Lookin good Jam. The parts they cone up and out with for the scale look crowd is insane. I've seen some on Ebay where the motor, trans, & x-fer case look like the reak thing. I even seen an add on kit to make it look like it has a real lookin & workin cooling fan and serpentine belt.

    Cool stuff jam. It's a blast going out and running at events with all the other trucks. I'll admit I'm not a very good comp driver but still have fun.

    By the way I like those pallets!

    Lookin good Jam. I'm really wanting to get a scale crawler now. Thanks alot. I'd prefer one with a link suspension instead of leaf springs.

    Thanks alot, I like this truck alot...
    I got this one just because of the leaf suspension and the realistic look of the whole little rig, I plan on a scale garage soon I think I like the scale look and feel of the rig, although I plan in getting another 1.9 rig so I can also go crawling with them and have a more capable rig.... I see building a trailer so I can tow the crawler with the TF2 for show and shines...
    Never really thought much about this side of the hobby but I attended the recent crawl "camp and crawl" put on locally by a group and I REALLY enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the work these guys put into these tiny trucks.....
    I have even thought of thinning my fleet a bit and focusing more toward the scale side....

    HEAVEN FORBID did I just say that :D yep I guess I did.....:lmao:

    OH YA I cruise RC4WD weekly :) always some new little thing to pique ones interest.....

    We have a local guy who prints all kinds of scale goodies also he was one of the sponsors of the Camp & Crawl we went to, he even has a scale blue and white outhouse he makes, it looks just like the real deal down to the TP hanging on a roll and the urinal to the left of the door.....
    I plan on one of those for my scale garage for sure....

    That's awesome. My only critique would be that the urinal peice should be more bowl shaped. But it still looks good.
