New To DM - Getting back into RC in a bad (Good) way.
#1
Image 
Howdy DriftMission. I grew up on Tamiya RC with TL01's and e-maxx. Took a break for quite a while. Then the bug bit and im back in deep. 
Current stable includes: 
- TRF801XT-e monster truggy 
- TRF801X-e SCT 
- TT02B MS that turned into a wierd 2.2 (HPI WR8 wheels) freak drifter thing. Its still in the works. and may still transform into something completely different
- Twin Hammers with Sand Scorcher body currently being built
- Second Twin Hammers on the way -Undecided on final direction for this build but a solid axle scale drifter may be on the table for this one.

I am also dreaming about building some whacky projects once the stable is reliable and set up, like:

-Weird buggy or 2.2 drifters based on fxx-d, fmx-d tt02, TB03, TB04, BD02, DF03, or TRF502X. Obviously this set of ideas is completely half baked, but the general gist is that I would use the gear case and suspension geo from whatever base model and then fabricate a custom chassis and body set.

- Scale Solid axle drifters based on either a Twin Hammers, MST CMX, or SCX-10. with a abs hard body. 

Excited to be part of the DM forums and look forward to diving down all the rabbit holes I can find! 
cheers.
