The dunes were awesome the best I have seen them lots of jumps one you could launch over a dune and land right at the bottom on the other side around 45ft. Also found a nice rise that I was hitting almost flatout and the car would wheel stand over the crest and across the dune. I could of spent the whole day there driving different lines.

No video yet, but hopefully at the end of the month I'll be doing a camping trip to Gibbon with a few boys we will definitly get some video then.

I just did an update to the shopping list, I have added front and rear turtle shock mounts.  I read on the IRC site that you either need these or there mounts to fit the shocks.

I also ordered a new radio I decided to go with the Futaba 4PLS i built my first SS kit with a spectrum Dx3R which was a pricey bit of gear back then and it was a piece of crap will never buy a spectrum radio for a car again*angry*.  I have been running the Futaba 3pl in it since and it has huge range which is a good thing in the dunes.bananaf

I picked up the 4PLS for my 2014 ss kit last month. The range is brilliant at around 600-800m before it starts to get intermittent. Also have now done 2 tanks and soon to be a third on a single charge of a 5000mah receiver pack and a LiFe transmitter battery combination. plusone!

I got a little more done to the 5b over the last week.  I installed the turtle diff, turtle shock mounts, team chase shock towers, IRC BB shocks and the uber rc drive shafts.  I also fitted up a set of proline bowtie's so i have a spare set.

I realised i should have a front window if i head up to SALS on the weekend so found some material and knocked one up.  RC planes normally have a pilot so thought why not put a passenger in a car.  I wanted some one tough, so settled on Bella Donna, if she can take a baseball bat she will handle anything i can dish out. *bananadog*
