    lol just a basher. Though all my RCs typically have that toe-in/toe-out setup.

    The only one I've ever adjusted was my Revo, less extreme, just went by specs on the interwebz

    super random, I had 4 gallons of Shell Rotella T-6 diesel oil, the fuel filter set and oil filters for a 6.0 powerstroke, and an unopened bottle of Archoil 9100 on Facebook Marketplace for a few weeks.
    Some guy messaged me and said he'd like to take them all, and had an RC car for trade...

    Sooooooo.... I ended up with this

    Got my son’s little Tacon Valor fixed up

    New body painted, he picked the body, colors... and faces
    Added the factory buddy wing mount, and instead of hacking the body up to clear it, I missed the mount with body posts and hold the wing on with body clips.

    Also had to replace the rear shock tower, was slightly bent and unfortunately didn’t notice until after I reamed the body

    Also smoked my slipper in the Slasher Basher.

    Snapped a front CVD so upgraded to MIP front and rear. Either the added weight, or my sloppy gobs of threadlocker added too much resistance and literally smoked the slipper clutch.

    Picked up a steel Robinson Racing spur and clutch.. maybe install this weekend
