    So I've had my outcast for about a week or so now and it's so much fun but, everyone knows that in this hobby it's impossible to keep things stock.

    So I've ordered a few things such as RPM control arms, skid plate and bumper, and a new body. Can't wait for it all to get here and start posting some updates!

    I'd love to tell ya but the most I've done is put them on haha. I'm hoping I get a day off this week to test them out and I'll let you know.

    Also a little update. UPS lost my new body soooo now I have to wait 8 days while they investigate and try to locate it before tower will send out another one ughhh

    I got a clear body. Just not saying what it is yet till I test fit and know it will work. I do know I will be losing the wing with the body I'm using but that's ok

    It appears ups found the body. Says it will be delivered today. Would be awesome as I plan on taking tomorrow off haha

    So the body I'm waiting on did come in and I'm pretty sure it's gonna fit. I want to paint it up real nice but I also don't know how much time I want to put into a badger lmao. Butttttttt I did also buy the proline wrangler body last night. May make that the bash body. Local shop is going out of business and all parts are 50% off so it was only 23 bucks.

    Use a dab of shock oil on the posts to mark the body. Less messy!

    IMG_2641.JPG So I got my servo mount yesterday from voltage and it looks awesome. It also had a note in it and it made me realize why I enjoy small business.

    Nice haul at the LHS. Just sucks to hear another one going out. As much as I loved the catalogs when I was a kid, there was nothing like walking into one of those shops and seeing everything on those shelves! Sad there are less and less to walk in to.

    Yep nothing like seeing something in person. You can't tell the quality of something from a picture. I forgot to mention I paid less than the cost of just the motor for everything

    Sad to hear about your LHS, but that is a good deal.
