Did some test runs @home.. real fun..




Then it was premier outside...my experince with the BL minzilla was bad..that one hold up for 2! trottles and then i rosted the tranny...even maxed shimmed...how was this tiny car hold up?

Im impressed..ok, there was some slipper on the gears, but aint much, and i could go on and run my second pack, but the car hasnt any BB so al plastic begaun to melt ...damn it was slow on lowend...

Did found a real nice spot, some "stones/sand" when ya have plants..brown "bullets" dont know the eng word, but here it is "Leka"...say 15-20x20m big, with diff hights...and 3x5 big "lake"..this stones floating around, on the fgroundest 15cm deep, i could surf it, on medium trottle to high..real FUN...

but im a ARSE...going out slow, and was thinking to "burn some rubbe"..yeah...



there was no problem, the car held up, and i did get hold on it with a long stick..but was i nervous or what :;D
