Default Crawler Innovations "Top Shelf" Ultra 4

First and foremost, credit for this build belongs to Casey C. / Almighty Malach. Casey brought a version of this rig to Nationals last September. He let several people drive it and it didn't survive the nationals weekend. I told Casey if he ever rebuilt it and wanted to sell it, contact me.

In February of this year Casey contacted me. He was ready to build it & some of the rigs inspiration was going to be drawn from this 1:1 ultra 4 rig:

The panels are temporary until Freq-e-skinz makes the new panels. I was in a rush to get this in time for the Pit Bull G6 in St Louis.

Top Shelf is the attention to link and shock geometry that Casey put into this rig! This is the smoothest and best handling scale rig I've owned to date.
