Night in the Mancave

Ive spent the last 2 evenings in the mancave tearing down and repairing my two cars. The F109 has been torn apart and rebuilt almost comletely. I have taken all the slop out of the front end with shims and new tamiya streering blocks. Cleaned chassis, reinstalled the 17.5, switched back to 1s lipo power, geared it to the moon, put the Pit tires back on, and then at the very stinking end of it all I broke the left rear wheel hub. Dammit all to Hell. So I switched to the VTA car and went to work there.
Replaced bearings in both diffs, replaced bearings in rear uprights, cleaned 3 weeks worth of Mikes Hobby dirt and grime, replaced steering mechanism with aluminum parts, fixed battery brace to keep it off of the belt (gained .5 second a lap there!) changed tires and wheels, and stickered up a stock car body. Pretty stinking productive couple of days in the Fortress of Solitude.
