Default Whats new?

Wow, its been years!

I was just looking through some old files when I came across some article I had written here. Brought back some beautiful memories. Miss these days.

Anyways, I'm in college now, a sophmore at the University of Wisconsin Stout, studying Manufacturing Engineering. My little brother Max is getting to the hobby so I though I'd take a look back and get in touch with some of you guys again.

Projects, well, as of right now, everythings in pieces in my basement, ha.

Well, I should take that back. In my last few months in the hobby I had been assembling a 4 link crawler out of gen 1 axles like c1v1c's sorta. I think my brother and I will start putting it together. I have both axles setup, and the gearing system, so I just gotta throw together a chassis.

I'll throw some pics up when I'm home later on in the month, the university is 5 hours away from where I call home.

Other notes, I run track for the Men's Track and Field team here @ Stout. Middle distance, 400m dash and 800m run.

Nice talkin to you guys again.

Later,
RedSXmodder

Welcome back! It is certainly good to hear that you are having success in college! I decided to go back myself a year ago and am very glad I did!

These addicting little cars have done a number for my current position, and will probably have an even bigger impact on whats to come.

Keep at it! You'd be surprised what you can learn here.

welcome back. long time no see, red. and of course welcome to the hobby to your brother. hope the project goes smoothly.

How's college going? also glad to see xmods have positively impacted your future. hope to see more of your work as well (your motors were always up there.)
btw
i'm doing electrical engineering at Univ. Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
probably because you got me interested in the whole motors/electrical thing, so thank you, RedSX.

Thats awesome to hear man! College is going well, I'm loving every minute! Electrical engineering was my original field of interest, but I decided I'd follow in the footsteps of my father and take up Manufacturing.

Good luck in you endeavors, i know my bro's getting a kick out of reading through some of my old posts!

Wish I could say I was, I have all my stuff @ my workshop back home, but its been years since I've touched it man. Spring break is when I'll be home next, maybe I could pull out the old kit and see if I still got it
