    With 10 trail miles under its belt now, I thought I'd write down a few thought about the li'l Bronco. I'm already addicted to this thing.

    Alan Man has a pretty sweet ride.

    I haven't pushed it too hard yet. Very scale driving for the most part. It is a little top heavy. That, along with the narrow track, can make side-hilling a bit of an adventure. Nothing major and certainly not a big deal for most of the trailing I do. The CMS has worked well. I haven't noticed any bump steer. The short wheelbase can make it a tad squirrel-y on long, straight sections. The benefit is that it is extremely nimble and maneuverable. It's diminutive size can cause it to pop its nose up and tumble back over itself if you're not paying attention and hit a taller-than-expected tree root head on at full throttle. Theoretically, of course.

    The little RC4WD Goodyear tires are the bees knees. They hook up great. The stock foams even work well with a light rig like this. The HobbyWing 1080 ESC, Holmes Hobbies Trailmaster and cheap-o servo are getting the job done. I did order a bigger pinion to get a tad more wheel speed. Hopefully I'll get that installed soon.

    This rig crossed the 20 mile mark out on the trails recently. It's been a great little runner, with only one minor issue (a nut holding on one of the links backed off).

    Time for another photo dump...
