Incredible build with great photos along the way.. how did you get the paint clear coat so nice? I have had nothing but trouble with clear coating from a spray can. Everything is tucked away nice and clean just how I think it should be!! Love it!

D90 came out looking really nice. My wife is wanting one of these so I'll definitely be referencing your build.

Cheers lads

As its my first rig I've nothing to compare it with but it's really great fun to drive and seems pretty planted. The wheels are heavy as is the bumper and body mounts. That with the battery position all helps.

It's going to get a proper session tomorrow so will update with a new vid soon.

well done man. looks like it came together rather quickly. i used an scx-10 frame on mine as well, but i also used a transfer case, along with some homemade shock hoops, panhard link in the front. and some other things, you should be able to find my build in here by searching for d90. love comparing like builds!
