Easy...that is correct. Stumbled across each other in the TRAXXAS forum, turns out he is stationed about 45 minutes from where I live. This may be the start of a little club...who knows...

That would be awesome...a few more MAXXers and a new Posse is born. We'll see.

Probably the "Inept Bashers" at this point. The weekend was a wash. Pirata's play area was in pretty decent shape. He made the mud a little muddier by taking his full size through it a few times.

The real story comes in from the poor performance of the 1/10 trucks, or more specifically, their owners. Pirata's T started up and ran a few good laps. He then got swamped in the mud pit and couldn't get restarted due to dead EZ start battery. No where to recharge out in the boonies. After having to do some field repairs (another story in and of itself), the Fantom fired up on the first pull (yeehaw) then it sputtered and died, and so did the battery on my rechargeable glow ignitor.

We both needed to let things charge overnight...uggh! I now own a drycell glow ignitor and a back up battery for my rechargeable. That won't happen again.

Our duty to our country keeps us occupied this coming weekend, but we are entertaining thoughts on the next weekend.

Believe me there will be photos at the very least and maybe even some video. I brought both my digital camera and digital video recorder for last weekend, with high hopes. Next time all batteries will be juiced and ready to play.

LOL- I might try that Easy-MAXX.

The thing is, living in snow country (Buffalo NY), I have to get in as many runs as I can before the white stuff hits and when there is enought light outside after work.

Darth-

Fear not the winter. I live near Albany, and I'm getting ready for it. Getting paddles and gonna waterproof the Maxx. She'll be ready. I do agree about the sunlight. Life gets dull when the "Dark Ages" set in. I suppose that would be a good time for headlights and a really big floodlight on the house!!!!!!

Candyman -

Are you putting paddles on the front and rear? I am using J-Hawgs right now and am curious to see if they will hook up in snow.

My budds and I just started discussing making headlights. The hardest part is figuring out how to make a mount for the superbright LEDs.
