    I caved in this weekend and bought one of the RC crawlers I still had a 20 dollar gift card from christmas so it wasnt that bad I spose. But I love this thing so far. I havent taken it into the snow yet, Ive kill alot of cheapo RCs that way already. I must say im impressed with its cababilities thus far though. I drilled out holes in the Classic locks. and turned the baja claws around so far. Im thinking paint job soon too. Possible 9.6 volt too:D Heres some pics of the most wheeling ive done in awhile.

    I had the Jeep, it broke so i returned it. Then i got the 1:6 Jeep for xmas. Its sooo cool, its bigger then my little dog!!! :D I got the bug of modifying mine, triangulated the shocks, made limitng straps for the rear, made it a flat fender and cut the rear fenders. Now im looking into doing a tummy tuck.
