I totally get it. I didn't know what to expect when I got my first one. Now I want 20 of them, with all different configurations. I really love the rock bouncer idear there. Didn't even know that was a thing!

As for the Furitek ESC, is there a way to weed the stock ESC out of the OEM board and just leave the receiver? My kid really loves the little stock Tx, so I am kinda wanting to try to leave the stock reciever in and 3d print a box to fit the modified board in along with the Furitek. This sounds like a problem @Greywolf74 Could figure out.
I once plugged my battery into the stock esc backwards, i beleive i removed the pins for some reason and couldnt remember the orientation of them, POOF!! Now it has a furitek lizard(or Iguana?) and the stock TX. You can make it work..... now that i think about it, the battery plugs right into the furitek, all the other stuff goes into its respective channels and works like normal. I kept the box, it houses the BT dongle. Honestly I was too cheap to buy another TX

If we can get a day w/o snow or rain, I plan to do a few update vids to kinda wrap up the weekend and all the upgrades/rebuilds I did on the 24's. The Taco basically got fixed and lowered. I can't really tell if the cg adjustments made a difference, but I think it did.

The boinger got finished, but I gave up on speed- just too much hassle in a worm drive with portals. It still needs a little tweaking, but it's already super capable. Pro tip- need to adjust your axle clocking? Use a lighter to bend your links- makes it kustom!

White magic got a full rebuild with furitek tegu and surpass outrunner. It's also getting a hummer body once I get a rear hinge mount.

The jeep got a mofo motor, and some more tweaking. I'm seriously impressed with how much this thing has improved over stock. And it still looks kinda scale (if you're running 45's 🤣), kinda. It's kinda my favorite to drive lately, too. It won't do the absolute crazy lines that Taco does, but it's dang close! It's the only thing still running the stock esc, too. My only brushed 24.

Ok, going back to work 2 weeks after carving the evil out was probably (not probably at all, more like definitely) stupid. I keep hitting the wall around 2pm this week, so don't hold your breath on the videos mentioned above...

Gotta look out for number one sometimes. We can wait. ;)
