Default The Comp-J



And it begins...

As with most of my builds, it will take a while to complete with my busy schedule... but I am especially excited about this little build.

Looks like a pretty fancy pile of parts
Looking forward to see what you come up with.

Locked Up RC makes the wheels.

Glad to see this thing going. I say slap some electronics in it and drive it, I only drove it once.

Here is the original build thread.
WEEE! Rocker

I can't wait to get it wired up and going... The more I look at it, the more I love it! The short wheelbase should make it fun to drive as well.

New wheels and tires are mounted. Scale hardware is a pain, but the end product looks awesome!



I love the stance and overall width as well...

I love the look of this rig. In fact if I had it at the time that turtle lowered the price I would have swooped it. Glad its in good hands as I love your builds as well.

I have always wondered why he made the front bumper so wide....just seems to have the possibility of getting in the way deflecting the reason of narrowing in the first place.

I would narrow it to the width if the grill and have a clear lock to lock opportunity....unless its already not an issue with the new pits.

By the way digging your tire and wheel combo...good stuff!

Yeah, the bumper is a hair wide... But I have a few ideas to clean up the front end a bit. I really digg the look of this rig overall. Simple, clean, and functional. I also love the wheel/tire combo. I am becoming a big fan of locked-up rc's wheels (and I am pretty picky I might add...)

I too have become picky in my old age and agree Locked Up hits the mark. I have a set of wheels on my d90 truck build....that may never get finished....but the wheels look good.

I do love this build.
