    I had a truck that my dad bought me(I think it was a Team Losi something). That was years ago, I find that they're way too expensive for me.

    Sure and you should attempt a Ghetto Freeze job on your toy truck :rofl:. Not sure what purpose it would serve but your a "Tinker-er" and thats what Tinker-er's do best!

    -Maybe you can freeze the ground behind you so your competition "slip's" or something crazy!!!

    2. Purchase teddy-ruxpin like Christmas tree insert. ( Animated Christmas Tree Face ) Rewire the servos to move a branch in and out instead of raising and lowering eye brows. Play Hitler speeches and make the tree seig-heil when the crowd cheers. (Project: Der Tennenbaum)
    3. Buy Yankees 3D baseball sticker (The one that you put on your car, and it appears as though it's been thrown into the glass?). Remove baseball. Keep Yankees logo. attach rear fusilage from Cessna to sticker. Re-apply sticker and Yankees Logo.
    4. Build Dune Buggy

    Oh, yeah.. work warning. Sorry.

    Yeah, Real dolls are kinda spooky. You have to fireman carry it into the tub and soak it in hot water to make it feel alive. Which is often the problem that is commonly faced by the typical client of Real Doll.

    When I get the time, and space and resources and I prepare the endoskeleton, memory wire and servos I'll need to order like, 30 real dolls. I'll pump the water through them so you don't have to soak it. Then I'm giving each one a goddam AR15 and letting them loose . Coast ta coast, gangsta.

    And they will be powered by E.Coli bacteria, so they have to pause and eat raw, bad chicken and spinach.
