Got mud? - 06.03.2011, 06:25 PM

i dont know who is as crazy about rc trucks slinging as i am, but after work today i packed up my e-maxx and headed to scope some mud , the lakes have been drying up in south fla south it make s for some nasty stuff. i headed over to where it looked nasty and it was after a few passes the crust broke and it was on! power was not a problem with a 1518 4s and geared 18/70 and this is an older e-maxx 2- speed tranny, spools f/r and extended chassis. this wasnt the mud you see on youtube (puddles) this was thick , when i got off the throttle at the end the mud was still falling from the sky, then it happened the first gear broke and it was dead in the water sort of speak, my servo to change the gears is bad so i could not shift to second to get outbut i was already stuck, i had to lay a small fallen tree across the pit to get it out- i know talk is cheap i plan on getting this thing repaired and get some video sunday with my brother

I'm right there with ya.

I love to make my truck fling mud up in the air, or in my case, clouds of smoke...

The best is making donuts in some powdered dirt.

I once got a dirt cloud with a clear hole through it, kind of like a donut..
