    No mate... got too many spare engines at the moment to justify spending money on a new one.

    Looking great Franco.

    Love the alloy arms, can't wait to get my hands on some for my rebuild.

    I already picked up a lightweight chassis, which looks sweet.

    Great work there Franco. Just read your build thread. Lots of shinny bits to. Should be a goer.

    Well after putting it all back together and then getting more alloy upgrades, i had to dismantle it again... but it's all back together now and ready to race them Losi's

    After all the changes i have made i figured i'd get out to the track today to do a bit of test & tuning. Currently weighs 14.5kg, and with the condition of the main straight at the SSME track it was very hard to figure anything out as far as shock tuning goes. Here are some pictures of my MCD RRV4 with new paint job...

    Ambro, Bit of a mountain goat that dog, no place he wont go, no chair, table or lounge is safe... and he has in the past been a bit of a stomach on legs, as he has been known to eat everything including rocks and tampons too lol Has started to calm down now that he just over one year old.

    Sean, Proline Trenchers.... will have to give a set of GRP Bulldogs a go tomorrow.

    Looks quite sexy mate, can you notice any difference with handling with the change?

    So many changes, Steph... had to re-learn to drive it, especially because of the larger diameter wheels, not sure if i like them wheels to be honest, would be better on a larger car like the Losi 5iveT. Thinking that the smaller diameter GRP Bulldogs (bit smaller then even mcd stock wheels) will be an improvement to the handling.

    Going with 600wt oil all round, 2 deg toe-in on rear, 0 deg (neutral) toe-out on front (for now) and still adjusting the camber... as well as shock positions and roll centre too. But need to do one at a time and it's race day tomorrow.
