Just use plastic dip. Its cheap and works awesome !

Yes they do, I heard of a few mods using WK knuckles and shafts and also rc4wd xvd shafts, just trying to figure out cost vs work vs strength.

Yes water depth will be limited.

Flops will most likely incure a penalty.

Any body have a good idea for a location around northern mi?

We tried to get this going a few times and had a few pretty good GTG's. We more or less used mis-dig flags and marked out a course that would direct you through different challenges. This can be done almost anywhere, city parks, state land, your yard. A lot of guys call these "G6" runs and it has a whole set of rules that can be followed as serious or relaxed as the group wants. If we can get a few guys and girls together this is really fun, keep in mind some of these courses can go up to a mile or more if you want.

Good place to start:

Here is a few links about the "G6" scale comp rules:

Me and Mudntruck ran a short KOH style race through holy moly against each other. No penalties for flops or anything. Just raced against each other. it was fun. I would like something like that too.

Yeah, I was like, wow i'm important somehow! I like my idea. Hence the reason for saying it. My wraith isn't what hardcore scale people call scale so I don't care. Its fun and the more the better. I put a cup holder on my control so I can drink and drive! I'm ready!!
