Very nice, I'd like to get my hands on one of his bodies. I like the ddk setup with the motor right threw the fire wall, very cool!

and here's some pics of what i have done since friday

I decided to go with the 1.55 slingers i had here and i just ordered a spare wheel and tire for it, as well as a winch, It has the DDK setup and im going t be running a HH 35t motor. I also decided to build a new tool box to hold the lipo since the other one wont hold much in it

I had purchased one of his spare bronco bodies, and it came very well packaged- I have not done anything with it yet, but it is truly a piece of art!
