    It all came as a kit (FoxHunter KMS Airbrush Kit AS186) which comes with two airbrushes – one’s a gravity-fed one, the other has a resevoir below, which requires a lot more air pressure. Both are double-action (allowing you to control both air pressure and amount of colour).

    No great shakes but it works, and will do unless I become a pro and want something high end (unlikely).

    Anyways, yesterday was my first run with a coil-sprung CMAX. This was Saturday night at 1:30am…

    (and yes, I made another windscreen wiper for the Oshkosh, but forgot to glue it on ::doh::)

    Anyway the CMAX drives ace ::drool

    So as expected this thing drives very, very well. What I didn’t expect was that it appears to drive better than my Skeleton J2s. My guess is that it’s because everything’s just a little lower to the ground on a CMAX. I did the technical course with it yesterday (aimed at SORCCA class 2), and it got over everything except the last almost cliff-face which couldn’t be done without a winch. Those long sand ladders were sufficient for pretty much everything else.

    The Goodyear MTRs did about as well as I expected, but I don’t think they’re quite as good as the siped TSL Boggers. That said, all of these observations are based on a single run, so I need to drive and test it all out a little more and see what’s what, exactly.

    And this evening I made those storage bosex (sorry I’m dyslexic — I would’ve corrected it but I already clicked Submit) on the bumper a bit older and stuck the winch in there. Still need to wire it up though.

    Leith Hill is awesome. We usually stay in the quarry/sandy area, but on Sunday we went all over the place. And then a trail run up the hill, although that got rained out so we never got as far at the view from the top.

    And yeah, I won’t tell you more about the CMAX. Well, not in THIS thread anyway. Got to do an update on the Hilux. THAT one blew my mind.

    ;)

    Thanks Geoff. It’s getting there, slowly. Used to have areally capable and reliable rig when I had the Jeep JK shell on the Skeleton J2, but after disassembling both Skeletons and doing the first CMP, and then the Oshkosk, I had no beater. The new CMP is almost a beater, but I’m still being careful with it.

    The plan is to do another Jeep JK as a beater, and then I’ll be happy with the collection. Except the ice cream truck I’m going to do on a CC-01…

    Seriously :jawdrop:

    Maybe the next time you feel generous, or ill. Do a forum build competition as a prize.

    Had this thing out for a 3-hour walk through Hampstead Heath today. The siped TSL boggers really are the best all-round tyre I’ve had so far, ever.

    Still need to wire up the winch. And it’s going to get lights too. If I get time before Friday… ::wow
