GRINDER Getting Big Air

Post by CowboyClod » Mon Jun 30, 2014 2:41 am

The past few days I've been doing some field testing with Traxxas MJ truck with this table top with TBG crush car. I took of what I already had and built a frame underneath using drywall screws. I made extension lips on all four sides which gives the option of four ramps for cross threading. Other obstacles came to mind tonight making this compatible to what I want to do.

It's not WHAT toys you play with, but that you play with toys at all that is important.

Well Jeff I got allot of hours logged in from doing jumps.
So much that I had a friend who mouth dropped open wondering how I managed to land it on all fours most times and he wasn't at all.... :lol: :lol: I told him you gotta let off on the throttle as soon as you leap or launch into the air. I had allot of times when I landed on my own lid too with black marks from the pavement which comes off with silicone spray which was my own little secret that I did not pass on to him :mrgreen:
