I Bought a Losi 8ight XE well a few days ago and just finished the build today and first test run in the back yard. Now ready to see how it performs at a track.

SUWEEET!

Look honey ,look what just fell in the trunk of the car!....LOL
Haha! No doubt man. She loves them as much as I do so that helps. Just got it unboxed, and I know a lot of people compare it to the super baja rey which is fricken huge, but make no mistake this thing is pretty darn big. Also came with the free light kit upgrade gonna have to get that on there also. Can’t wait to drive it!

Some SD and micro SD cards, floating sunglasses leashes, and dry bags. Headed on vacation starting Thursday after work!
Now why would you want to do that. Next thing you know you'll be out running your trucks and getting dirt on them...

So a little over 3 weeks ago I crash my softail driving home from work I was going 60MPH when a stupid turkey flew out in front of me, all I could do was hit the breaks and try not to let it hit me. I was successful on that but not as lucky when the stupid bird rolled under my back tire and I lost it.
I ordered a new helmet today from Revzilla and some gloves from the local Harley store, so once they finally get to my bike I can be ready to ride again. I still got to buy the Helite riding coat but we taking baby steps first, broken ribs not as much fun as I thought they would be. LOL.

Anybody that says they don't need gear is not the brightest in the world, the gear is what helped so I could walk away from the ditch I ended up in with only 4 broken ribs and some missing skin, had I not been leaving work I would have been in my riding pants and still have my missing skin.

Been a few days but picked up another 4s lipo and this bat safe. Nanner nanner nanner nanner ?

Being in apartment, I felt this made sense. And I’ve been lucky with my lipo over the years so it’s worth the added insurance.

Hopefully picking up a Traxxas Slash 4x4 ultimate today. ?

Picked up the Slash 4x4 Ultimate last night, it did good on the track today, but immediately swapped to 50wt oil on all 4 shocks when I got home. Can’t wait to take them back out again.

Front bumper on UDR bent pretty bad needs replacement. Hopefully the RPM is good.
