Yesterday we took a half a day trip to Cerknica and the famous intermittent Cerknica lake.
There was a small wooded areas with some logs ,rocks , maybe a bit too flat but it ended on the lake bank
Mojca drove the Wraith for the whole run and i the SCX10 Cherokee.
The only modification from last time was flipping the tires around so the thread pattern is upside down, according to the internets the tire works even better , and oh boy is it better than the stock proline flat irons the rtr came with .
Back to the new RC4WD 1.9 mickey Thompson Baja claws . on this type of terrain i would say they are better than the 2.2 axial ripsaws , but it might also be something to do with the foams. Thats very near the top of the to be improved list .
The rocks on the lake bank offered a chance to finally do some proper rock climbing. It was mostly ledges of slate at near vertical inclines . The Cherokee went up them like a mountain goat. And the bit where it got stuck , a bit of throttle jumped it over. Its still a bit top heavy , but i plan to add weights to the wheels anyway , so that will fix that . Currently its at 2.40kg whilst the Wraith is at 3.60kg .
I got stuck on the front bumper a few times, but that will be improved with the custom tube bumper which is in the works . Also some cosmetic changes are in the mail as well.
