Some RC fun

One day I was out walking with my girlfriend we discovered this dirt bike track (see image underneath). So yesterday I was out driving with my RC car, and it was a lot of fun to jump around. Even managed to nearly break one of the dog bones in the car. So need to fix that.

I also had to buy a new controller and receiver, as I drowned my old one.

Underneath you can see another small car I bought. It’s a 1/18 Smash by ECX. I bought it defect from Smallsize for under half the price. As the receiver and ESC was defect. My plan was to use my old brushless ESC and engine to beef it up. Sadly it turned out that my ESC had broken down, and later when I bought a new ESC it turned out the engine where also broken. So by buying this cheap defect car I ended up using twice the money on a new engine and ESC. Luckily I can use those parts in other projects. I’ll probably try them out in a boat.

New bike tire

image

Bought a new tire for my yellow bike. As I where experiencing flat titee several times the last month. So, of course I had to buy one with yellow stripes. Tried it out to today, and it felt okay. Not sure how a new tire is supposed to feel. You may also notice that I’ve been riding fixi. Was hard and not really that fun, so I switched back when I got home.
