    I would like to start a thread on what rc are you working on and I am still working on my traxxas s-maxx converted into a e-maxx and it has been going up and down on the project due to radio problems, steering servo problems and those are fixed and currently now i'd just ordered and bought a brand new e-maxx brushed transmission, dual motor mount plate with screws with a 68t and a 62t spur gear, plus with a slipper clutch as well and a waterproof steering servo

    I some how always have one rc on the bench waiting to be worked on. My next project is doing some maintenance on my Losi Mini Highroller. I also have to tune my Savage. It's hard to fit it in between school and homework.

    the only thing im working on right now is possibly buying another rig this weekend. its an ax10 with a toyota body, stock axial electronics, sedona tires and a couple other things.. its ready to run for $375.00. because its a used rig im going to look it over when i get it home just to make sure nothing is broken even though from the pictures he has sent me it looks clean.. other than that i havent been working on anything except lawnmower stuff which i have another month of that and then my rc season starts up again.. im looking forward to it because the ford rew cab needs some bodywork done and the wheels need to be put back together.

    I have the german language pack, nothing ever gets translated except by chrome which doesnt rely on the language packs anyway. The windows language packs are dictionaries only and to my knowledge have never featured translation.

    I'd just did a tear down on the rear of the S/E-Maxx and I took apart the rear diff and the old grease got really sticky and clean it up and it is now filled with marine grease and just enough to coat the bearings and the ring and pinion and I also put marine grease in the brushless transmission and this project I am working on is now project overhaul and this truck will have a new E-Maxx chassis and I will post pictures on the forums

    the only physical project iv got going is a long running and not really worked on bolink eliminator pan car. haven't touched it in months. need to buy body mounts, a body, electronics. need to bend up the steering linkages and find what size rubber grommet i need for the rear pod and pick one up. then fabricate a new t-plate for the rear pod.

    then iv got 2 mental projects going on.
    1. i want to use my 1/14 scale new bright mud slinger F-150 body and make a custom chassis for it. give the truck some actual off road capabilities. and if i like the results, iv got a 56 ford f-100 body from a radioshack street comber. make another one. just need to research axles and gear boxes. (right now im thinking HPI wheely king axles/gearbox might work) and im still up in the air on ether using the CNC machine at work to make the frame from fiberglass, or using automotive fuel line and brazing up a tube frame.
    2. make a pan car chassis for my old tyco lamborghini countach body. the body is in good shape, but the chassis' broken. it's got a broken front spindle so it's time for a chassis transplant.

    and for the last month or so iv been kicking around the idea of restoring my old HPI nitro RS4 2. but i most likely wont. ill probably just put a nice body and wheels on it and stick it on a shelf.

    and iv got a toy grade nikko boat that im considering swapping to hobby grade electronics.


    one of these days i might actually get around to completing one of these projects.

    I took apart my truck and before I clean out the rear differential the grease in that differential got really sticky and so I cleaned it up and I put some marine grease in it and now it is smooth to turn it and i installed the silver aluminum chassis brace and the chassis is to short, so I made homemade aluminum brackets and it fitted fine with the new integy front and rear skid plates, also I install the RPM front bulkheads, also the front differential and now it is solid as a rock I and I installed these parts on the E-Maxx 3903 chassis and it is coming along great so far now
