Welp, I finally got the chance to film me driving my beloved Savage Flux yesterday with my good friend taking the camera helm, so instead of boring, static tripod shots, here some awesome, camera following footage, complete with complete air cover of my Flux going airborne!

Up until I broke my Flux...... Owell, good as time as any to upgrade to RPM parts!

I don't mind fixing my broken trucks, I mind when I don't have the cash to dish out for new upgrades, or for replacements period.

I'm looking to get rid of my Tamiya TT-01, so I can fund some cash for the replacements for the rest of my trucks, and then some! :p

As long as you have, that's all that counts.

btw, I DO have the CASH, but not paypal, and I'm trying to see how long I can go without going insane.. :)

Your truck is nice and the aggressive driving makes the videos very entertaining. But for all of the videos I have watched featuring backyards and streets in a development, this one stands out because the bash area is amazing. Normally after watching any video, I want to run my truck. After watching your video, I NEED to run my truck and I NEED to run it THERE! :cool: Not all of us are blessed with a perfect bash spot...you have it good because you have a great truck, a great bash spot, what I must assume is a local buddy into RC, and (best of all) you share this with everyone by posting videos. Thank you!

Aero, could you tell me some more about boiling plastic parts and what does it do?

opposite to metals, heat treating the black plastic will remove mold stresses (or crazyness, like glass is crazy) and give more 'elongative' characteristics.

i did it to my proline wheels, and basically every plastic part that is not 'too slim'. If you seen some plastic parts' breakage surface, it can look corny, like an alu alloy broken with fatique/bending..if you boil plastic, then instead it will act more like fx RPM's plastic, and simply tear aparts looking like honey..if it happens. dunno if it make sense.


some plastics may not take it, get all out of shape..but so far all rc parts i have tried works..
