Good to have you back Paul!  I love those big dirt haulers!

Those are the type of dump trucks I need to pull up to my house someday... :D

Are those trucks and buggies Team associated?  I used to race quite a bit a few years ago.  I ran a Schumacher '99 Pro for a couple of years before I upgraded to a TC3 which was awesome!  I also took part in the nitro Kyosho cup which was pretty good as well.

Had to give it all up though.  :(  It just cost too much money.  I ended up selling loads of it in the end.  Still have my '99 pro though and my first car, a Tamiya Grasshopper.  :D
I'm back!!

Welcome back.

I remember when you first started posting...you were looking for a new MT and I think someone asked what you do, and you posted a pic of one of those giant vehicles :o

I think we all agreed that the Core could handle that kind of stuff :multi:

lol no problems there
we see around about 100 roos a day either on the drive to work or while we are driving thru the bush
we also see emus and echidnas and heaps of lizards and also about 50 wallabys a day as well
on average we hit in our 3 utes   we will hit around about 10 roos a week
and when you hit a roo they do lots of damage
the roos hang around the farms and when you drive on the tracks they all bolt for the fences pretty good to see a roo clearing fences in one hop
and the core is going great love this tool shes a bit dirty now
