    My step-dad ordered a one year only option 428 1969 Pontiac Lemans Safari station wagon with a TH400 transmission; moving to California from Texas somewhere in Arizona or New Mexico in the early summer of 1971, a Winged Warrior (probably a Plymouth) came up and Gene decided to race; mom told him to back off somewhere around 110/120, and that big beautiful beast left us behind like we were standing still. Made a big impression on a nine year old...

    The Redmeadow crew has been rocking these little crawlers lately. These things are incredibly agile and fun.

    One of my sons has the Axial Scout. It’s crazy how much you can customize those things. Lights, suspension, etc.

    I almost pulled the trigger on the Redcat Scout last year.



    I found one that was used twice on Facebook marketplace for $200 and passed on it because I'm really good at talking myself out of stuff.

    So I have to admit I'm nerding out on these 1/24th scale minis as much as the kids are. The wife asked what I wanted for my birthday......

    Is that a 1/10th scale? That course looks fun.

    I'm pretty good at putting off purchases long enough to talk myself out of them, I'm not gonna be able to.resist these. I'm building a crawler course in the bed of the early 50's F3 that I doubt I'll ever get around to rebuilding.

    Yes, 1/10th scale. They can be found for $300 but are easier to find for $329.

    I really should have bought the used one for $200 but I thought, "this person bought it, used it twice and got bored with it. I'd probably do the same", so I didn't jump on it. :rolleyes:

    They were available in blue or orange. The one for sale was the blue one that I wanted. This year they come in bright green or violet purple. I'm not diggin' either one.
