BigBlue 94 I've posted this before, but....



I just met the guy who owns it. He has a towing business, and just towed my Bronco from the old house, to the new house (not with this unfortunately). My clutch master cylinder bit the dust.

This pic was a while back. Now it has a boom on the back and big winches front and rear. He's also got chains for the tires. Uses it for offroad recovery. Around here that means generally one of two things. Someone got stuck in a field, or someone got stuck on a two-track. The latter of which sometimes is bordered by steep, craggy ditches and laden with tractor ruts. Roads like this one. With all the rain this year, no one drove down it for months, and grass in the middle was 3 feet high. They had to MOW THE ROAD!

However, I was racing electric, so the only smells we would "enjoy" were the electrical burning smell of someone's fast-charger overheating and the only sounds we heard were the "whirrrrrrr" from the motors, plastic parts breaking when trucks would somersault off the track, and racers cussing other racers for causing wrecks! Ah, those were the days - spending hundreds on race trucks and winning a $50 gift card to the hobby shop when you won.
Thanks! A lot of effort is put into building a competitive boat, cash too! You were lucky to get a gift certificate. But that all comes from the entry fees. Most times I go home with a bad attitude after some newbie punched a hole in the side of my new boat! Then there is the politics. We got a bunch of tree hugging Democrats trying to boss around the Republicans. That would be the whole Gas Class! If we boycot a race, they suffer! From time to time I forget it's just a hobby and it's supposed to be fun.

The 'Rude is a 2stroke too.

Not real sure they actually make a 4blade prop for it. I was being silly

But, if it had roller rockers, it might be a different story.

BikerPepe` I'm not particularly afraid of heights, used to even consider it "fun"... but those first two pics put a lump in my throat.
No way I'd be tryin' that sh!t these days. I'm pretty sure it takes two feet to be considered "sure footed".
