Where you guys go in Ocala? I'm in Citra myself. I've seen a few of your
vids, some nice spots

Damn bro, didn't know you were local! I'm in Summerfield. Couple of my buddies in Ocala and the two from the last video from Orange county. We gotta crawl some rocks together! I get to go about once every couple months. Otherwise I'm crawling my backyard course. Most of the spots I crawl are within 10 mins of my house. Scale Mountain is about 5 mins.

Great looking rig. I just built one too; Sand Scorcher on a NWSD Derringer chassis. I don't want to hijack your thread, but I will share a few pictures.

I have ended up with 1.55 Pro-Line Swampers on RC4WD Wagon Wheels, HH 2500kV Snubnose Revolver with a Castle Micro Mamba X ESC and TGH T210 OD trans. NSDRC RS1 Servo and MIP shafts to Axial axles.

Looks nice! I'm going to be picking up a Derringer chassis soon. I want to try
making my scorcher bug better. Not to happy with my current trans & motor
so I'm going to need more chassis room to upgrade. Got any off body shots you
can send me? Curious to see the guts on that chassis.

Sure. The toughest part is setting up the Panhard bar. I double bent mine, but in hindsight it only really needed one bend. The rest is pretty straightforward.

I originally had a 540 Revolver and Mamba X; I replaced it with a Snubnose Revolver with a Micro Mamba. You can fit everything in the front with some effort. I even have the receiver next to the servo.

I'm really happy with how the aluminum sheet works for trimming it out. Let me know if you want any specific pictures you can't see here.

*** Edited to add ***
I have a bunch of pictures on Facebook also, if anyone is interested.
