Tiny Truck Adventure CHECKLIST – Solo Part 2 Every Adventure Requires a Little Planning and Safety in Order to Maximize the Fun.   I have included a simple checklist to start from, I say start from because each adventure in each location is as different as your taste in tiny trucks from mine.  Customize your checklist to what works for you but always remember to check your checklist and update it.  Once you have a solid list, laminate it and keep it on your Bug Out Bag so you know it’s ready.  The backside of that checklist is a good spot for a bag inventory so you can keep track of your supplies for each season. Last item, keep track of your distance or time out on the trails.  Tiny trucks have service intervals too, 25 miles on a scale rig is a ton, you should be using CowRC products to get some Udder Butter and lube that truck!   Practicalities ☐     Know where you are going and make sure you are allowed to be there with an RC vehicle ☐     Appraise your fitness level.  Are you try

Ten Lessons learned that have shaped my preparedness of a Tiny truck adventure –  Brought a freshly storage charged set of batteries with me instead of fully CHARGED batteries, ended my day less than two hours in and did the walk of shame back to the car. Didn’t bring wet weather gear because the weatherman said it wouldn’t rain.  Soaked, ruined phone, ruined transmitter, and no spare clothes to change into added a soaked car seat to the list. Spare parts, or lack thereof.  Brought extra leaf springs, driveshaft’s and gear set for my Trailfinder 2 but neglected to bring a TF2, I was using my Element Enduro that day. Not telling my wife how long I would be.  She couldn’t reach me by p

Bugout Bag tip-Winter lipo managment

Here at Carryall RC we like to stay out on the trail year round.  When the temperatures dip below 50  degrees maintaining battery life can become challenging.  A cold battery effectively becomes a battery  with a lower discharge rat e(c rating) and can have such an effect that a fully charged lipo can trigger  the low voltage before the rig can even move.  Here are a couple tips on keeping your rig moving  during even the coldest outings: Preheat your spare batteries. Placing a hand warmer in your lipo bag can keep batteries ready to go for hours.   Wrapping the warmer in a bandana helps to keep any direct heat off your batteries.   Remember good lipo safety, and make sure they do not get too hot. A cup of hot coffee is always welcome on the trail.  If you are using an older style bottle  keeping your batteries close will keep them warm. Our least favorite method is to keep a battery, preferably in a lipo bag, in your front pocket.  The idea of having a flammable, often unpredictable l
