Default Corona isolation plans / projects

So the people who are staying indoors what are your RC related projects you are going to be starting / finishing?

My plans are
Paint my Subaru Impreza shell for the Tamiya TT02 which I bought / built at Christmas.
Put the summer set up on my Cougar KC so its ready for the outdoor season.
Strip my Losi XX and do a full rebuild and fit modern electrics.

Seriously? No one's gonna take advantage of this lockdown to spend your time with your family?

So my plans have changed, just ordered a PR Racing S1 V3R EVO so hoping it turns up soon and I can build that during lock down.

Just upgraded mine with some of the 2020 spec parts. Just the stiffer new front wishbones have most certainly helped on carpet. The steering is just a little more consistent and predictable. I'll be upgrading mine to full 2020 spec when I can.

Not much choice here

Anyway:-

1. Rebuild both cars fully
2. Finally get my son's car sorted and get him practicing in the garden/on the drive
3. Sort out all my stuff
4. Get rid of 2 x cars I no longer need
5. Sort out my workspace properly (proper man cave in development)
6. Maybe treat myself to something for winter club racing
7. Get on to VRC

All this in between working at home, home schooling and looking after wife in self isolation. Happy days!

Not sure my mum will want to rebuild my diffs

In all seriousness, here's mine!

2WD Buggy - Finish building/wiring new kit ready to go outdoors
Frontie - Line chassis with heli-tape so can be used outdoors
Associated B4 - Finish restoring, add kit set-up and paint bodyshell
M03 - Rebuild shocks, add internal limiters
Rallycross - Add stiffer springs, thicker diff oils ready for some testing
LMP - Buy new Lipo and rewire

Then bang new receivers in them and chuck them on a set-up station!
