Nice. Do you have little ratchet-straps for them too? Either way, your truck looks great!

Thanks. Here's a couple pics of the Tycos on the trailer for size reference.

I've had a couple Bandits in the past. I know the Eliminator actually has articulation in the rear suspension as it allows the rear pivot point to not only pivot, but also move up and down where the screw pin mounts it to the main chassis where as the Bandit only allows it to pivot on the pin same as the Turbo Hoppers...not sure if Im explaining that well enough. And from what I remember on the Bandits, the Eliminator has just a little bit longer shocks on the rear, but I think the front suspension is pretty close, if not the same.

I was really surprised by how active the rear suspension is on the Eliminator with the longer travel and it also seems to have softer springs.

Very cool. Thanks for joining us on the forum again.

By the way, I really like the looks of that Eliminator. I've been looking at those for a while since they always reminded me of the Tyco Bandit. Have you ever had a Tyco Bandit to compare how the two of them handle?

One other thing that I just thought of, since I see one in your collection... I believe that I have the original artwork of the Aero Turbo Hopper, although sadly it's packed away. It's not up on my wall since I don't have much display room near my desk in my den.

Those videos led me to build my own custom 6x6 Tamiya Globe Liner and extended Tamiya flatbed trailer. I'd like to get a lowboy trailer and excavator but they are big money.

Blogs / Visual Music Composition
« Last post by Dragon on June 23, 2017, 18:42:10 »
Today the Google Doodle was about visual music composition. I've created a couple little music pieces on it myself. Here they are for your enjoyment

http://g.co/doodle/9wdw3a

This second composition is more of an enhancement of the first one.

The inspiration for Google's Doodle today is Oskar Wilhelm Fischinger - quoting Wikipedia, Oskar "was a German-American abstract animator, filmmaker, and painter, notable for creating abstract musical animation many decades before the appearance of computer graphics and music videos."

The inspiration for my musical composition was probably more recently inspired by a CD that I bought recently - NYVES - Anxiety.

I just happened to be clicking around on YouTube and I came across this awesome video showing off some very realistic RC Big Rigs along with a scale environment to drive in (roads, construction site for dump trucks, etc).

RC truck action and Mercedes SK stuck at RC Glashaus! BIG R/C FUN! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw8ntyRb7_8
