On the 6th of April, or second day of Easter as we call it in Norway, I was joining my first RC Scale competition, called Påskecompoen 2015. It was organized by NORCC, Norwegian RC Crawlers, and the competition was a typical class 2 crawling competition. Meaning that the truck needed to look like a real one (but not down to the smallest details). I had bought myself a used Unimog body, and scored the truck of the day!
Last Sunday I met up with some forum-buddies of mine to drive some Scale truck. This was my first real trip since I bought the beast in November. We went to Ekebergåsen where we found some really good, but maybe a tad difficult spots.
Roads never look steep on pictures, but it was. I sadly had to lift my car over this section as it was to steep and slippery.

Yesterday I talked about my RC savings (a little fun fond). I had originally planned to buy myself a 4×4 Scaler with the money. More precisely an Axial SCX10, either the Dingo or the Rubicon. Since I ended up buying a drift car to drive with my colleague I put my SCX10 idea on ice, until I saw a Christmas offer I didn’t wanted to say no too. So I ended up getting myself my very first scaler! The actual building of the kit was done before Christmas, but I finally now got around putting the time-lapse together for my blog. Enjoy the view of me building my SCX10.
PS: I’ll upload another video of me testing the car tomorrow.
