Show us where you add the "pimp" in Bitpimps

I think it may be time for everyone to show off the place where all the pimp flavor is added. Post some pics of your "shop" I'm interested to see them.

I'll start off.

Yeah. I used to have a Yokomo YZ10 4WD buggy that ripped, but unfortunately, I can't locate spare drive belts for it. I put that ESC in , and on the second charge, the rear drive belt broke. I've been searching for one ever since and unfortunately came up stale. So, I'm looking to score either an Iwaver board, or a couple working Xmod pcb's for it.

What kind of ESC? Did you put it in the Fo'Sale or trade section?

It's a Tekin Speed Star ESC w/reverse. I was running a modified Trinity motor off of it. I only used it twice. It works just fine. I thought I posted it, but I guess I was wrong????

Damn man all those stickers came off of that NSX nicely...

@Hiroto... I like how you have the "cup 'o tools" thing going on... if I had someplace to set up a dedicated "shop" I'd probably have a bunch of stuff in a cup right where I could easily get like that... I have to keep my shit locked up and out of reach... my kids would wreck it if it was out in the open... I just bring out what I need for whatever I'm doing and set up shop on the kitchen table...

Nice job on the research Stampy. I can't remember for the life of me if it is reversing or not. I'll have to find the booklet.

This is where I put the "pimp" in bitPimps back in 2003:

I'll try to get a more updated picture.
Basically there's about 1 foot more room and about 6 feet more crap. :lol:
