Der ZERSTÖRER ist fertig. Zeit für ein wenig VERNICHTUNG. ;D

I replaced the steel bumpers by lockout and horizontal servo mmount. Looks better I think.

The battery box is an insert of a cutlery box. Foams used as spacers. SO I can later use 7cell batterys.

Next days I want to try to make a running video but weather plays his own game....
Will update thread next days.

Bad day. Old and battered tamiya plastics gone broken. #-o

C-Hub and one knuckle broken.

I changed the steering Link, after first testrun it was damaged! I used full-metal ballhead with M4-thread, so it's very hard now.

Some videos (german spoken): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkfU59 ... gJA/videos

Very nice truck. That axle tube broke pretty easy.

I beat my trucks pretty hard and I've never had one break that easily. Hopefully the new tubes will do better.

Nice pictures. :thumbsup:

The Clodblazer is going to be hard to catch this month, but do not give up, anything can happen. It would not be the first time a truck with a large lead did not win, and even if you do not win, do not give up as you may continue entering if you do not win.

New progress!
Since last weeks I changed a lot. New rear steering, new steering links, servo reverser for rear axle, Tamiya alus ervo mounts, Kimbrough servo saver and minor changes.

Yesterday I made two videos:

Looks like it's running very smooth and consistent for you now.
