*rofl* only fckn Rovan part left on it bang head
The only reason I say tht is that Kane found the washers inside are a different thickness.....so if they f(*&^% tht up it goes to reason tht they didn't clone the gears right either *rofl* thefinger

The day started with such promise.....after that it was all downhill *crybaby* *rofl*

Got my motor back from Damo with new porting,also got the victory pipe that he recommended so was looking forward to playing tag with Jnr on his bike......he chases and if he runs it over he wins headbang *rofl*
Was also going to be my first run with the killer rx lipo......!woohoo!

visitors can't see pics , please You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


Got it all finished late last night so couldn't fire it up but all systems were go....loaded up the van this morning and headed off.
For some reason the outlaw pico that seemed to operate fine the night before just wouldn't light up bang head didn't bring any of my spares so loaded up and shot home.....
Hooked up spare pico,fired it up !woohoo! back off we went......got there,fired it up....for some reason it would run like shit for 30 secs then it would die....fire it up,run like shit then die f*** bang head
Started checking shit and noticed that the green light on the pico would strobe out then die.....checked all the wiring,connections etc but they where all mint DOUBLE f***

So was it just bad timing or is it something to do with the lipo power? Will get a killer kill switch so shouldn't be an issue from here out.....but no c*(% has them over here so will have to order from os..... *flog*

Was close to running without one......but I decided that it would only end with the Baja dissapearing so gave up *thumbsdown*

To be honest the only surprising thing was that it took the committee till 1 to talk me into it *rofl*
Just a little test they said..... 1lma00!

I'm not gonna say much cause I thought vs1 was a monster and it turns out it was just training for vs2 *rofl* ..........but fck me gonna ditch the shorty chassis as it was just a loopy fckn bundle of chaos !woohoo! *rofl*

Then it made my spur disappear....

....and as per usual the spur problem can be traced back to the muppet on the end of the Tx !woohoo! *rofl*

Pinion was loose so bell was rubbing on the clutch and it got a bit hot I think *rofl*

1 voice.....that sounds peaceful 1oops1 i had to put into place a voting system after the last time I lost the plot *rofl*

I'm still a bit baffled with this vs2......even with all the usual new toy glow etc the difference there seems to be between the last one and this is pretty fckn epic....I expected the massive jump going from the OBR lemon to vs1....and I thought vs1 was fckn great....so either the latest batch is super special happy joy magic medicine......or vs2 is as good as I think it is dontknow *rofl*

......now all I need is a kill switch and I will do a bit of filming.....be more likely to find a fckn moa than a killer kill switch in NZ *rofl*
