    That sucks.

    I have found that the only driveshafts that hold well for me on 6x6's are the RC4WD Punisher and RC4WD scale hardened driveshafts. My Mack driveshafts were $120 and that was at "show/event pricing", but the truck will bust into pieces before one of them goes. I get a little chatter in the short driveshaft due to the articulation of the rear axles, but a limiting strap can solve that.

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    THE MASTER!!

    This thing is killer Wes! Stinks to hear about the shafts but the best way to learn is to break things. You won't make the mistake of using the Integy shafts again. I hope you are bringing this to Motorama for all to see.

    Just couldn't stand the imperfections on the pop up. Sucks, since it is epoxied down. Lots of tape later I started filling in the imperfections with bondo. Turned out good and now I don't have to wrap it in vinyl. That would have been a pain!

    Thanks to a Turnigy servo speed regulator, I have a much more realistic pop up. It is slow, but think it looks about right.

    That is great. The speed looks about right for an actuated pop up .
    Great job on the build

    That speed definitely looks a lot better. It doesn't look like it is about to fly off its hinges anymore.
