    Drove up to the hobby store today. They didn't have the lower links I wanted for the wraith but it was still fun as always to look around. They had a Defender on display and man did it look SHARP.

    Got out the ECX desert buggy when I got home & had a nice bash session in the front yard. I meant to look for a 15t motor while I was there to get a little more speed out of it than the stock 20t it came with. But I forgot

    But it was still fun playing around while watching this pile:

    You have to get a new esc because I don't think the stock esc can handle anything under a 15t... Well at least that's how it was when I had a circuit 2 years ago

    I've been to the beach MAYBE five times in the last 10 years. Not a fan of crowds. I tend to bite... My wife loves it down there, but I have a short wick when it comes to crowds of loud, obnoxious tourists. Last time I was in the water down there (ten years or more ago), a large turd floated by me. I've not been able to deal with tourists since. So I go north into the woods, and bear turds don't bother me. As long as they aren't still steamin'...

    You'd love it down here, the only "turds" in the woods here can be seen from around 300m (300yd)
    Only from September till December when they go south.

    Only bear around here are black bears & they run away when they hear you.
    Lots of deer & rabbits around here too.

    LOL on the turds. And I REALLY wish the black bears ran away up there, too. They are bolder than usual up there, probably due to the amount of cottages, etc... in the area...we carry bear spray at certain times of year. And a word of advice...make damn sure the wind's at your back when you have a brief moment of stupidity and decide to try out your can of bear spray. Ever been maced or pepper's prayed? Yah, just the same...

    Well, USPS has done a great job in PISSING ME OFF. My new Arrma Fazon is coming from Sacramento CA. So, after about 5 days of just daily "In transit", not saying where, it finally says where it is: it only made it to Iowa. Then, after another long wait, it went to Pittburgh PA. And then finally to Buffalo NY. All this while, the delivery date was set for yesterday, Saturday August 19th. Well, yesterday came, I checked the tracking and it had made it to Buffalo at 4:47 AM.. Yesterday I had to help my cousin work on his new house to get it ready for moving in (just some painting, etc.) So, all day I was super excited to come home and drive my new RC. I came home last night around 8, no box on my door step. I checked the tracking, because I knew the mail had to have come by already (usually comes at around 4:15-5). It still said In transit. Well, I knew it wasn't coming, so I was of course disappointed. This morning I checked again and they changed the delivery day to Monday. And now it is at Hamburg, it got there this morning. It got to Buffalo at 4:47AM, they could have sent it out in a shipment to Hamburg and had it on the truck to deliver it. Now, I have to wait until MONDAY afternoon. Stupid A$$HOLES AT USPS. Can't do their damn job right. They clearly love to procrastinate. It took way longer than it should to get around. And they're not even open for 1 HOUR today so that I can go get my package. Oh, but they can move it around today, but they're not open and there is no mail. Sorry for the rant. USPS SUCKS.

    I have no problem with FedEx or UPS, and this has been my first problem with USPS.

    I did have some mechanical issues today with the Trail Frog. Seems when I rearranged everything under the hood to fit in the connectors and switch assembly for my night run lights, I blocked airflow over the ESC. Last weekend, and again this weekend, I had several instances of "thermal shutdown"... hood was very hot to touch, ESC was TOO hot to touch. So it looks like I need to cut some vents into the hood and wheelwell liners to facilitate airflow. Today's temps were pretty warm...28c, with 71% humidity. Wasn't too bad on the forest trails, but out on the rocks, in the sun, it got very hot, very quickly...

    Don't use your phone camera unless you have a special lense for it. You could destroy the camera part of your phone...
