Skunk Rock Trip
 
Well I drove around today and picked up some rocks to put on my patio so I can wheel my little jeep. It didn't turn out too bad but I need to find more rocks and do a bit of rearranging. I call it skunk rock because one of the rocks was marked by a skunk at one point and it still has a slight odor about it. LOL.

Here are some pics and I plan on getting some more tomorrow in the daylight and maybe a vid or 2.

The ONLY reason those headlights are round is because they don't make the lexan jeep bodies in a YJ. Tamiya used to make a YJ body for RC cars that you build the same as a model car. Very realistic looking. Those are rare now and sell for hundreds of dollars. It'll be a while before I get one of those.

You can bet that if I ever find one for a decent price those round headlights are gone. :D

Got the video done. :D

YouTube - RC Jeep 1

jgano23 12-24-2008 10:48 AM

Coyote_94YJ 12-24-2008 10:53 AM

It can do under water. :D

jgano23 12-24-2008 10:54 AM

sweeeeeeeet!!! i wanna see that video.

Coyote_94YJ 12-24-2008 10:57 AM

That's for later. I'll have to find a place to do that.

You can see other ones on u-tube doing it. Just search "emaxx water".

distortedtj 12-24-2008 01:41 PM

Was it in low or high during that?

Also how you like the new tires? Pretty soft and sticky?

jgano23 12-24-2008 01:47 PM

you should climb stonehenge if it has long enough range.

Both. The crawling was in low obviously but the parts where it jumped up on the rocks at the beginning of the video was in 2nd gear.

The tires are really soft and sticky. Also I set them up on the beadlocks without foam inside and got em all sealed up. They run like a real tire would if it was aired down to like 7-10 psi. The next thing its getting is a diet. The thing weighs 15 pounds now. I've increased the unsprung weight by 5 pounds for traction. I just need to ditch some weight off the chassis.

Coyote_94YJ 12-24-2008 03:05 PM

I think tonight I'm going to move the course indoors so I can play when ever I want. :D

4point 12-24-2008 03:17 PM

You should put it in your bed room so you can wake up in the middle of the night and play. :cool::D

Coyote_94YJ 12-24-2008 04:04 PM

Why didn't I think of that before? I am going to have to start laying it out, and get it approved.
