Will do! Just a quick run on 3s tonite in the driveway...NO HEAT. She didn't even sweat moving my 7.1lbs fat rig.

Naw not letting this one go. Its an OG Prototype! You mean SIS? I am a chick.

Convert your regular axles to XR10 universals. You'll have add XR chubs/knuckles and some more fab to make the axles fit. Bam! More steering angle!

Haha no worries! No I won't paint my trucks pink (I really don't like the color). The only reason my XR10 comp rig is pink is because it was an oopsy when dying red. Plus it goes well with my blue/pink skins. All my other rigs are far from PINK!

Nice! I was wondering when this rig was going to surface again. I got to see this in Montana last year, Ty did a great job on it. Interested to see if you mod it or just drive it....it's so nice as is.

And please don't call a 7lb rig fat,it's 2lbs lighter than any of my scalers

He did an awesome job! Don't have any plans to mod it. I might redo the tube work eventually. But nothing to drastic to change it.

Oh my...9 pounder huh? I think my Wraith tipped over at 8lbs at one time.
