I recently discovered hundreds of cool pictures taken throughout various sessions with my Revo 3.3 (of the last four years). Picture of the week post series justified, I guess!

Thar she blows!

Finally! I bought a pressure tank. Good bye expensive one-way air-pressure cans! With 1.5 horsepower this should be sufficient to unwind screws just by hitting them with the air-flow… and get the cars undusted pretty pretty pretty good!

It came together!

BLING! Just some pics, I did every update i planned to, except I skipped booting the springs and balooning the steering-servo, and well … stickers! Oh, wait – rear chassis brace is still missing, maybe later this month. And maybe I will finish the various custom grinding areas (e.g. underside of chassis at the steering area) in pico-bello superfine.

* For the waterproofing of Castle Creations Mamba Monster ESC I used black PlastiDip. Applied layer by layer with a brush – works perfectly!

* Bye bye wheel wobble – HPP hexes are a blessing although they need one more spacer on the axle than what is supplied.

* HPP motor-brace – no comment – just brilliant.

* Spektrum power! The standard 2.4 GHz Traxxas Link System is not bad. Not bad at all. But my Spektrum DX3R is just so much better!

* Oils! get your oils checked!

– Front diff: 70 K
– Rear diff: 50 K

– Front shocks: 50 wt. (650 cst.)
– Rear shocks: 70 wt. (900 cst.)

* Constant velocity center driveshaft – steel glory!

* Summit spec axles all around – extra beefy!

* Aluminium pushrods and toelinks all around

* HiTec single steering servo with PL single steering aluminium servo arm
