And now , the most tedious task , at least for me , of this project . Although I will take an rc4wd cabin, because this one from tamiya looks like a colander, there are now no Marlin version beds, so I have to cut and paste, since it is not the first thing I do, I already know what to do and what not to do, Let's see if it's better than the last one hehehehehe

I have taken advantage of the weekend to do things, test suspension, make links and other things, to see if what is missing is coming and I continue with the bodyworka







With the material I have , I am doing what I can hehehe any progress is good , even if it does not follow the logical order hahahaha

Electronics on your site, as I have links made that there does not bother me




And some internal wheel arches , the rear ones finished , the front ones I have the molds made , I am missing the plastic I know I have run out






The front ones are already drying

More parts have arrived, for now I have been able to adjust front links including panhard and its support.
Definitely, I will put smaller tires, it will go very low and with Currie axles, with the pitbulls it rubs when going wider than with yota axles.

I already have the right tires, on Monday they were sent by FANATIC and on Thursday they delivered the package to me in Spain, excellent as always





Comparing with 1.9 Krawlers

You applied the silver paint so smooth that it almost looks like liquid. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Sweets are arriving, a couple of packages are still missing to finish with the wheels that will lead to the end:





The quality of the screws and the aluminum and its machining are excellent, but with the price they have and seeing the rest of the manufacturers, putting plastic rims seems like a shitty thing to me , it happens to me like with the Vanquish KIT rims.. At Ä1000 they could put some alu's really...





I am waiting for the IFR, the tool and the tires

I get it, and youíre not the only one thatís less than stoked about the molded clamping rings.

Knowing that it was either molded clamping rings, or price increase, Iím glad they went that route.

Itís already expensive enough for the wheel set, slw hubs, scale hardware, ifr ring, etc etc

Good choice though, the tanks are a sick wheel!

Without a doubt, delighted with the rims, they are my first Vanquish, although I think the last ones too, for this price, better a gear head, reefs, cnc customs or spec-rc ... all aluminium, in addition to the Vanquish distributors in Spain inflate prices
