That's pretty sweet man, looks good but may I suggest painting the frame black or putting in some wheel liners or something, I think that alone would make this rig look awesome! Oh and bumpers too!

well if all goes well it should be pretty beffy... having a 3speed powering the winch should be interesting.. but for me to verify the plans i need the tranny in hand and i got 3 days to wait:-( but!! i just ordered a set of hpi stock car wheels so i can get rid of those cut down tlts and nylint tires... im surprised nobody mentioned them now i need to decide on tires... so post ur opinions please..

im liking these.. wut do u guys think..

Thumbs up

well i do have an update but im at work so ill edit and add pics when i get home..

well i decided to go scale crazy with a full interior and working back doors.. but i hadent anticipated the size of the 3 speed..so i fought to get it mounted where i can still use my interior and my winch,... which i havent decided on how i am going to do it seeing as my previous plans were shattered by the massive tranny...and now i have to re design my steering too...
owell i know this post sucks without pics but i will put them up asap i promise
