Lest you all think I have abandoned Tamiya...... :)

Lest you all think I have abandoned Tamiya...... :)

Now T2 I'm sure you will all recognize, but for you new guys, the one in the middle is a Terminator chassis with a custom cantilever suspension to allow the use of geared up titan motors, making it pretty fast, but it crawls too.

The Gravedigger in the foreground is a stocker I just recently got.

The clod in the back is another stocker, and in need of a thorough going through. This is going to end up getting used to revive the super-stocker, which I still have the chassis and suspension bits to. I've already started tearing this one down. I'm finding a few broken bits, and the chassis may not be usable.... but it's got 4-slot silver cans in it, so bonus right there, and the rest of the parts look good with little wear. There's an old mrc servo in there too, unsure how good it is though.

Nice Andy! It looks like someone had a paint fight with the one you are going through now. :shock: Lets see those wheels straight on. :wink:

Leave the Digger alone. It looks pretty cool just as is. :wink:

Other than some stocker-esque tweeks, digger is indeed going to be left alone.

Those wheels.... previous owner only did 2 of them.... I am meh... as far as trying to do the other two.

Was not planning/expecting to have either one of these.... funny how things happen.

Hope to have these both ready before we get our first decent snow storm.
