Time to see if it still runs, I have nobody to take video so it's the perfect time to try some on board video. I never finished tuning the truck 9 months ago so it's still in the same state of tune.
    I got 2 tanks thru it with the tranny never missing a beat,the changes to the pawl and drum do not appear to have any dramatic effect on th shift points. So far so good for the 2-speed clutch mod.

            Hey Moldy!! Congratulations for this truck!! As everybody said, thats unbeliveable! 8O

            Where did you get all your skills to build this thing? :?:

            And, I was looking all the 14 pages that you have here, and all the vids from RC pics seems to be dead... :( Actually the RCpic server do not allow direct link to the file, so I could see just the firts vid.... :cry:

            Hope you have this vids in another server, I would love to see it!

            Great Job!!! :D

            Hey moldymarvin, i to took a break from rc but im back in the game again.Its nice to see your truck again, i love that onboard camara you got there and the view from the camara looking backwards is awesome as you can see the tires balloning and control arm squating under hard accel.I have seen some camaras on flea bay and was wondering what you went with.Your picture seems to be very clear and sounds good to. 8)

            I have been watching the astounding progress you have been making Moldy! Its fantastic!

            The only problem now is..... THAT I WANT TO DO IT TOO! 8)

            You should consider selling kits with all the included parts for this mod, like all the custom made parts, tanks, diffs, linkages and all other hardware!

            Its great! :twisted:

                                firstly congrats on the project looks like a blast to drive, you have inspired me to try and attempt the same thing, well very similar anyway.

                                My idea is fit the engines lower down in the chassis possibly with the TVP's bracing over the top, custom TVP's, and increase length considerably so that the heatsink is in front of the rear tyre, as watching your vids it looks pretty hard to keep the front down!
