My new car(s)

I got this car, a Losi 1/24 Short Course Truck (SCT) a week after I bought the ECX Smash. And since then I’ve bought a lot of extra stuff for it. Originally it was defect with a brushed engine. It nearly worked, but I quickly ordered a a new brushless engine on Ebay. I also went to the local RC store and bought a set with pinions gear. found out later that I already had a pair laying around, plus there where some that was in the package the car come in. So now I have a lot of them. What you see underneath is not the SCT edition, but the Truggy. It got bigger wheels, a cool spoiler, and a lot smaller space under the “hood”. The bigger wheel made the Losi run a lot better outside, but the hood was a bit cramped to keep all the electronics inside it. So now I’m back to the SCT body, but I modified it to use the same big wheels!losiTruggy

So on to my next car. You may remember my Nitro to Electric conversion of the old Tamiya TGX MK.1? I finally bought a proper engine too it, the Mamba Monster v.1 which I found on Finn.no for a fair price. A week later this package arrived at my local mail store.

mamba-0It was pretty heavy, and it was several reasons for that. Mostly because the guy that sold the engine wanted to get rid of his two cars too. So I got them too. Plus some other stuff.

mamba-1 mamba-2As you can see it was fairly well package. With a lot of paper. He even sent me his old tool-kit which has been wonderful! And I use it every time I work on my cars. Plus some spare parts. There was even a light controller (I think it that).

mamba-3Here are some more images of the car. The body is a bit to big, and after some Googling I found out that it is supposed to look like this (it’s a fuel car, what a coincident).

mamba-5Too much air around those wheels for my taste.

The other car he had sent was a Sakura Zero by 3Racing used for drifting. Sadly it is missing way to many parts. So I’m just going to scrap it. Probably saving every part in a bag.

Enjoy some “inside” photos.

School takes time…

So, I’ve been bad a bloging lately, and I’m sorry. It’s just been so busy at school and in my little spare-time. As I’m taking two philosophy courses, there is plenty to read every week. I’m also playing boardgames every Thursday and HeroClix on Tuesdays. Not sure if I’m going to do that every week, we’ll see.

In other news, Ive bought Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for my 360. Not really a good game, guess I’m to old to play it. If you want to play a good game, you should check out Dead Rising 2 prologue, Case Zero. That’s one awesome XBLA game! Sadly I don’t have that much to play, I’ve even borrowed Heavy Rain to see if it’s really that good from a friend.  Maybe I’ll have some time to waste this weekend?

I’ve bought some new boardgames, Seaside, which is and awesome expansion for Dominion. Next one I’m getting is the new Prosperity. Hopefully this month!

I think that’s all I’ve got to say now. Hopefully I’ll blog a little bit this weekend. At least after the awesome party this Sunday. Time of the day will be revealed tomorrow! Good night!

To my awesome friends

This is my girlfriend writing this post  because I’m too lazy to do it myself. So what did I do today? Nothing. Nada. Zero. No, wait! I did do something.  I was at a seminar by Opera, the most awesome web browser ever! (Though my girlfriend doesn’t understand why…)  And then blah, blah. You were all there, you know what they talked about. The snack was awesome. The t-shirt we got was awesome. Guess what was written on it? Hint: think geek humour. Still can’t figure it out? Ok, I’ll show you.

Don’t complain if you don’t get it. At least it’s not offensive, sexual or racial related. Or is it…?

Ok, you probably ask yourself why I write this post when I don’t really have anything interesting to say. Well, after the seminar, we all went to eat dinner, and I mentioned my blog. I probably shouldn’t have mentioned it. Now they all expect me to write something interesting about them. But the thing is, I don’t do interesting. Sorry to disappoint you all guys.
