Started a rockgarden .

Started to build a rock garden today . The total size when finished will be 4'x12' I am using a small vegetable garden the previous owner of the house had in the yard . I am also using rocks that are scattered around the yard . I am currently 1/2 way finished putting the rocks once finished I may add on to it with stuff like a rope bridge and a ladder that will become off camber ect ...

I have 2 2wd slashes. One is a spec slash the other is well let's just say the trans case is the only part that has not been upgraded.

I guess it is about time to update this thread lol !

The rock garden was never finished I stripped the Spur gear and snapped a driveshaft on the SCX10 so I parked it on the shelf and lost motivation. This past summer the garden was overtaken by weeds and I never fixed the Crawler. While finishing the nursery I stumbled upon my Scx10 and decided to revamp it and ordered a ton of parts for it today

I Ordered the following :

Junfac Carbon Steel Driveshafts :



6 Spoke Aluminum Beadlocks :



RC4wd 1.9 Rock Crusher XT Tires:



Holmes Hobbies Crawlmaster 1340 1000KV Brushless motor :



80T Aluminum Spur Gear:





Once all of the parts come in I will update the pics of the crawler, It should be bullet proof now with all my other mods I've done to it .

I cancelled my order for the junfac shafts since they were on back order and drove myself to the LHS and picked up some MIP shafts and axial set bolts for the shafts.
