I must have one of these. With the proper upgrades it should go from freakin cool to dangerous in nothing flat.

HERE is the company site. It’s due to be released next month.

Axial – The Rock Garden

This is the latest incarnation of the rock garden I’m working on in my back yard.  It’s getting bigger, but it’s been a little while back.

Here’s my Axial Scorpion just after I finished it.  Yes, the body is off of an HPI RS4 MT.

I’ve since upgraded it with the bent links, 4 wheel steering, MIP metal drive shafts, and lights.  I’ll try to get some pix of the rock garden I’m working on in my back yard.

Electric Bee On Floats

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Finally got to try my Lazy Bee with the floats. This was the first time since I converted it to brushless electric, and I must say that the power to weight is better than when it had the OS .10, and it flies better with the floats than it does with wheels. I still need to tune the radio a bit, cause I think it needs some throttle to elevator mix. Still, it’s a damned hoot to fly off water. Click on the pix for the bigassed versions.

Moar Bass on the 4th

Friday, July 4th, 2008

I have no idea how I fit so much into one day. Went to the farm with my folks and did all kinds of stuff. Ran the mower, cooked out, shot off some south kakalaki fireworks, took a nap, hung out with the neighbors some (not the one I wrote about before), and did some fishing. I think that’s about it, might have been more.

Well, I finally got the right dew on the bait. Seems like the big ones don’t care for hore derves (fake bait). I got a half hearted chase from a shallow diving plug, but nothing more. Then I switched up to some live bait (good thing my pond is stocked with bait as well as bass). The first one weighed in at 3lbs 14 oz. The second one slightly smaller at 3lbs 8oz. Kind of surprised that I got them fishing off the dock.

Happy 4th.

That’s right.  A mall, a man, and a shit-ton of undead. (more…)

I’m in love, old hobby.

Yeah, I finally scored another SG.  I used to have one a long time ago, but it was a bit haggard and didn’t sound too awful good.  I traded it in for a Washburn Shark’s Tooth, and I kind of wish I had the old girl back.  But at any rate, I scored a much better SG this weekend.

Now some would say that just getting up in the morning is dangerous enough, but mix in some money, a penchant for speed and a dab of penile deficiency, and you end up with one combination or other of fast women, fast cars, or some other fast toy. Most of these are inherently dangerous in one form or another.
