Oh darn. Time gets away from you when you’re having fun with tiny trucks.
Here’s the latest issue.
Don’t worry about that other crummy magazine, this crummy magazine has all the best article related to the just happened East Coast Scale Championship. It was my first real competition with flags, gates, rocks, water and mud. I met a lot of very nice people who make tiny trucks and had a ridiculous amount of fun.
My trucks did okay. 10th place in Class 1 and 37th place in Class 2. Class 2 was a very tough go for my FJ45. The poor thing had a lot of strength, but in all the wrong places. It suffered the following injuries:
1. Broken front steering knuckle, causing me to have no steering for the final gate. Proved to be a challenging finish.
2. Water and sun caused some condensation to goof with the receiver, forcing me to take a timeout.
3. Holmes Hold held on too hard and I burned out my motor. Where’s there’s no smoke, there’s no fire. Although this time there was smoke. And bad electric smells.
4. After replacing my motor thanks a generous n00b, and having a hamburger/hotdog combo, I broke the small plastic driveshaft that ran from the motor to the transfer case. Broken, day over.
Class 1, nothing broken. Good, reliable Trail Finder 2 fully linked, and fully fun. Get one. They’re great.
I’ll be back for next year, all ready have my yurt reserved.
