Figured I'd post a picture of my old piston after running no head gasket. I used as low as 93 octane (usa standards)

Little carbon I think, no signs of detonation that I can see.

I don't post much, but when i do i prefer Dos Eques.

I've had a few spectacular crashes recently, 1/8 style non - stop cartwheels. I'm really surprised the wing hasn't broke.

The spark plug protector works amazing , it's little scuffed up, but not bad at all. This is with wing in the rearward position.

Broke a wheel. I glued it for the time being. I was looking at pictures of bartolones buggies, and they are all running standard 5 wheels. I still can't bring myself to run those wheels because of the added weight.

Yeah, but beadlocks take the abuse from impacts so much better.
A problem well stated is a problem half solved.
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

Having some fun with street tires and 2wd. Just goofing. Don't worry, the sign is fine!

Looking and sounding great buddy. I'm thinking this is the 1/5 scale for me. I'll enjoy what I have for a bit and 2018 maybe get 1 of these.

Thanks, it's probably obvious I like it. With 22/53 gearing it still pulls great. I've been wanting to get some video at the atv park, but I'm still getting used to camera mounted on the chest so I tend to forget and only turn my head when running it. Makes for boring video of nothing, lol.

Why not mount the GoPro off the base of your transmitter? Always worked great for me.

Lost the front pin in the diff locker, the it was a bad idea to keep the front brake light operational.

Can't trim on my tablet, but I get some decent drifting in about halfway into video. This buggy isn't very fun. Got the wing upside down and maybe 45k or 60k in center diff. It's going around 72kph.
