    Default Look what I'm building

    I found this in my grandmas garage, thought I'd give a try at putting it together. I'm missing just a few thing's so I'll have to pick them up later.

    Thanks! Well, it's an R/C truck. My first one I've ever attempted. Anyone else have experience building these things?

    I built one once in high school. Had way too much money and not enough reason (read brains) back then. I decided that the stock 15,000 RPM motor wouldn't be cool enough so I ordered a 50,000 rpm motor and never put the stock one in. It could do wheelies for 1/2 a block and with the good oil filled shocks I could drop it from 6 feet and it wouldn't even bounce. So naturally I built a jump. Wouldn't you know, even with those shocks and all that speed, when a RC truck leaves a 4 foot ramp, cruises up to about 8 feet, soars 20 feet or so. And it did all this while performing the most beatiful corkscrew maneuvers. Landed on the roof (so much for the shocks helping) and rolled, and rolled, and rolled.

    Ah, the memories.....

    Cost me about $600
    Sold the remains for $200
