How's it going Locked? Unfortunately I gotta work so I won't be able to witness your fearless awesomeness. If David shows up (blue YJ on 40's) make sure you ask him to give you the hard lines.

Thanks haha. For some reason it sits a little low in the back and I was all 'I gotta pop the sprigs loose and put some sort of riser in there to level it out' and then thought to myself 'wait.....this could get ugly!' Haha.

No but thanks guys. I know its just a dumb hobby but I had alot of fun building it, and look forward to doing more. Hell, its wayyyyyy cheaper than guns and real cars. But wait... It's not way cheaper when you still pay for guns and real cars AND models lol.
I think it looks great! Not dumb at all

What other ones are you building/have built?

I'm blown away at the parts they're making for DIY RC car builders that are working from scratch rather then building from a kit!

The RC crawlers are getting out of hand. Some of the guys I was wheeling with in Florida could have bought a cheap XJ for what they had in their RC Crawlers.

I would be more then happy to have you show me what it can do. I'm not a huge fan of playing with others cars just due to the possibility of what could happen. Right now I've only got my slash left, and have thought about either a summit or getting into an e-maxx.

Welcome to the darkside and a life or ridicule while you laugh at people that can't socialize with those around them face to face but rather stare at their hands endlessly while in public. Smartphones are pretty much a disease. LOL

Let me guess though, you took the picture with a smartphone? LOL

(don't get so offended guys! You're way too attached to your phones! LOL)

I may be upgrading to a newer dumb phone soon myself. Need to go see what my options are.

It is our new work phones. I get to keep the iPhone as my personal line in addition to the new work phone. When we showed up at the shop and my boss was handing them out the youngest guy asked if it was a beeper.

LOL, he know what a beeper was?

Funny part is to me, I can totally 100% see where the smart phones have a place in the work place. But for personal use... Sorry, I don't need access to everything all the time anywhere, that's just my personal opinion so it's the choice I make.

One of my hobbies has been RC for a long time. The second picture is a wing for a Spitfire that I am currently building. Hope to have it in the air in the next week or two.
Now, RC is something I'd LOVE to get into.....but my pockets do not run that deep, and my relationship would suffer, haha.

Guns, jeeps, models, RC, the dog....no time for woman.

So.

Before 10am on our first business day of the year, I have secured 2 contracts that add up to more than 25% of my total sales from last year.

One of these contracts is more than 2x my previous largest job. The other, will total out to nearly 4x my largest job ever. I am absolutely psyched, it will be fun and challenging managing these jobs. And this is a huge step for us as a company.

How's that for a new year?
