Insurance said no to the fusion surgery. Apparently they don't deem that medically necessary until you've had the disk fail 3 times, and I'm only at 2.

The good news is they did approve another discectomy so I should have some relief soon. Maybe it'll last this time, or maybe I'll get to do it all again soon. Time will tell.

On the plus side, recovery for this is much shorter so I should be able to get some wheeling in later this summer. I'd like to shoot for the ultra 4 race at aop if that still happens in July. I'll just have to see how things are going by then.

Insurance is such a joke. I am glad they are at least doing something to make things better, even if it is temporary.

Just like the full sized ones. They can get expensive in a hurry. I have about a grand in mine.



and close to that in my son's.

You can get started pretty cheap, but it won't likely stay that way. I picked up a crawler as well a couple weeks ago for $160 rtr. Redcat Everest 10. Basically a clone of an old axial ax10.

Of course I can't leave anything alone and I've spent probably another hundred so far tweaking and tuning. It would be really easy to go nuts and blow the budget. Lol

Surgery went well. My doctor seemed pleased with what he was able to clean up, and I'm not having leg pain currently so that's good. Now I'm working on recovering from the cut in my back so hopefully I'll be returning to normal in the next few weeks.

Also my back injury crawler is pretty much complete. The integy chassis showed up yesterday and I put it all together. I'm pretty happy with the result and it really hasn't broken the bank. I still need wheels since the steering I added doesn't clear the stock wheels.

I pulled the trigger this evening. Should have new seats in about 6 weeks.

I dropped down from the Podiums for a couple reasons.

First, my buddy just happened to have ordered a pair of comp elite seats so I was able to try them on. They fit great and really felt like it will support my back and spread the load of any impacts effectively.
Next, it looks like the width of the of the podium seats at the shoulder (24") would require moving the seat mounts inward about an inch, which is a lot of work.
Finally, the Podiums taper in width all the way down the seat and are only 18" wide at the front of the seat per PRPs measurements. This was also stated by their cs rep when I called to discuss the options. The comp already felt appropriately snug and it's closer to 21" wide at the front so I was concerned about that being too tight.

If I had been able to test fit the podium, maybe I would have come to a different conclusion, but the closest place i know to try them is wide open design, about 6hrs away. Moving the seat mounts was the biggest factor really, because that would be a major pita.

Got a tracking number from PRP today. Seats should be here Monday, beating their 6wk estimate by a week and a half. Now I just gotta hope FedEx doesn't run over them with the truck.
