October 26, 2013 - B4.2 Buggy RTR
Decided to order a ready-to-run Team Associated B4.2 over at the hobby shop. It’s great, though sadly quality control had been slacking and I had found that there was a missing spring cup and a leaking rear shock; didn’t mind too much.

July 18, 2013 - Traxxas Slash 2wd Update - Broken Parts
Broke something during a bashing session with a makeshift ramp; practiced jumping with the 4x4 (yellow bodied), but the front right wheel of the 2wd went out of whack. Turns out the caster block had broke, and in turn, cracked the front bearing carrier. RPM replacements on the way !
July 17, 2013 - Traxxas Slash 2wd Update - More LED Lights
Decided to put some LED’s in the fog light area, and it turned out great !
July 15, 2013 - Traxxas Slash 4x4 - Pre-race Close Ups
