We live on a dirt road, dead end, deep win the woods. I buy ammo in bulk. Everyone on this road owns a gun, minus 1 or 2 houses. We don't dial, 911. . Felt fairly safe even during our lockdown. Mass shooter on the loose. Lewiston Stong.I've never had tranny issues with any of my 2wd vehicles, hell my Stampede is like 10 years old and still on all of the factory tranny gears, I think those are the only parts that are still stock actually . I did replace the diff case with a Hot Racing unit and the gearbox case with an Rpm one like 2 years ago though.
They got me into the hobby, and I still have a few. They’re not horrible, but I don’t know how anyone can run the Velineons on 3s without burning them down. They are not as rugged either, especially transmissions and gears. To be fair, they are still fun trucks and parts are cheap. But yeah, their website is the biggest joke in the RC hobby. Makes no sense either, with 50 gazillion rigs out there and counting.
Yeah, Mrs. Dude has given me grief for years about my hardware collection and steadfastly refuses to shoot. However, I was shocked a couple years ago when we were watching half the cities in the country burn down on the evening news and she asked how my ammo stores looked.
That said, I consider myself to be nothing more that a firearms hobbyist. I don’t hunt anymore, and have never lost sleep over an “us vs. them” situation or worried about anyone storming my property. I just like guns, and I love to shoot. But I’m pretty sure word is out in my neck of the woods that the Dudes property often resonates with the sounds of multiple calibers in a rapid fire manner, so I doubt if any locals would choose my house for anything nefarious.
