    Post your RC pics

    Time to air out the old stuff so we an get to the new stuff. Held onto this stuff for over a year now and tired of not posting it. Part of this never finished project, never really liked anything past the first part.https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7803/...3f0ee03b_b.jpghttps://farm8.staticflickr.com/7914/...713e4c12_b.jpghttps://farm8.staticflickr.com/7848/...fa3b755c_b.jpg

    Damon is not and has never been the PC child friendly MJ driver. He was a racer and I think that rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way. Take a trip though any real Motorsport garage where big money is at stake and Damon would seem like an angel. Every series that has competition for million dollar contracts, sponsors, media trying to make a story, all while trying to beat other rival teams with the same expectations as yours results in super competitive personalities. Probably had good reason to trash talk Dennis' racing ability. Once he got out of his ancient PEI he and adam were the two fastest almost every weekend on every type of track. Racers are a different breed, those who do it on talent rather than daddy's money/achievements are usually super competitive and care about only one thing and thats winning. Everything else isn't their problem, their job is to win. Not saying their are not nice racers out there, but the number that have been rude, said bad things about other competitors, and a slew of other 'naughty' things far out number the nice ones.

    This community baptizes people by fire, its an age old tradition, we cant stop now. Ah the newbie days of asking RKM for his private mtm2 Captains Curse. I bet he'd still chew me out for asking for it to this day then promptly log off (Or as I assume block me) to wallow in my shame. 🤣 Just to keep on topic, this isnt 2005, no cars at a monster jam event is a non issue. The tracks havent relied on cars for a number of years now. And turning boxes arent anything new, and quite cheaper and easier to move than a car.

    MJU uses Rigs of Rods?

    Its cool. But I think its lame they filmed him practicing in full gear in a 3rd person view. Kinda defeats the "sim" part. Either way congrats to those guys who worked hard on this. Glad to see its all worked out.

    Colton ike chassis?

    If I had to guess, Logistics and $$$. Easier to carry parts that fit all the trucks on tour rather than bits or pieces for individual trucks. Makes parts interchangeable among trucks on tour. A bad example, if one truck burns through all their available 4-links in a night they could get some from the other traveling feld CRD trucks. Those arena tours are hell on trucks and having each truck be roughly the same is a huge advantage for feld. Of course everybody using the same parts means spending less to have parts stocked for a one off truck for a season.

    Not sure I'd want my escape route in the event of a fire to be a little tight but thats just me. Especially with the way the back of Hans' devices can get caught on things. The people that are worried about head room are not worried about him moving and hitting the roof, but rather the roof moving and hitting him.

    IIRC Feld/LN/CC at one point had a rule that there had to be more than one exit point. Thus why trucks like monster mutt had roof hatches because the windows were to small to crawl out of. With a windshield I dont see two points of easy/quick exit. However based on some other trucks I assume this rule/requirement has been dropped.
