Some of the parts have come in the mail woop woop :)

Just a quick update to what am doing on the baja.

New shock socks. Alloy front bearings and a little experiment on the right side to try to cover it up more, It did not work:p Got ripped apart in a fue mins :) And the plastic under left under pullstarter go bent under wheel height. So ill guess ill try to get that in alloy ;) Or ill try to get it to sitt better i atleast.

But love the baja so much fun to drive. And its like having a puppy. Alot of ppl get rly curious abut it ;)

Am having so much fun with my baja! Just installed new throttle servo and its so responive!:)
I got own battery for the lights. Cuse i don't want anything taking el from the servos.
The dominator pipe is sooo loud omg!:)
Socks on the shocks. i removed the protector from starter. Cuse am having rly short start wire. Cuse it broke :p (But new on its way)

I have shit load of tires on its way and already some have arived already.
I have 12 diffrent parts i have orderd from ebay.

Soo i feel i come to the point where am rly happy with the baja as it is .
So i think out side of the items on its way. Ill stop upgrade it.(just maintaine it)
And order my next car in 2 weeks. After looking high and low. I come to the conclution to buy a 30 DNT Shortcourse;) Close over sea support. And i think i found a rly good store to order from. rcmodelz.co.uk . From what i can find they are amazing ppl who is proud of there products . I wanted to order from Dave/steve. But the tax and price for delivery to Norway. Made the Uk offer rly atractiv. Am able to get and RTR for 580 punds. Wich is amazing for a 1:5 truck.(don't call it a 5ive-t clone cuse i think they hate it) :doctor:;)
From what i found its superior to alot of, dunno what to call em . Other brands trucks not losi:p (clones)
So if am able to get it as good as a Losi with some mods and upgrades am a happy camper:)

But its not build the same way as a losi. So its not a copy as the others. Engine is turned the other way. Throttle servo is behind. So there is differences. But still rly similar. Cuse its the same class truck.
