Default My High-Lift Build Contest Submission

Oh wait....no time for building, too busy wheeling.

-Raised the cab up by half an inch or so. Removed the rails. Plan to do a rear flatbed eventually but it works great like this. At the very least I'll make a battery cover.
-Shaved the lip off of the diff covers and it makes a huge difference in the looks department.
-Took off the stupid front bumper and put on the Savage brush guard.
-Still need to relocate the steering servo because it hangs too low now.
-Installed Narrowed Xtreme RC Geos on the RC4WD narrow beadlocks. (Zero offset beadlocks on order)

Now the only disadvantage to this thing is the low center skid. Once I figure out something for that this thing could honestly hang with most 2.2 comp rigs. I have driven it and beaten it probably more than anyone else has and I've only broken 2 minor parts. Servo saver and a yoke e-clip came off. I'm still extremely happy with it.

Is that real rock rash, or did you beat on it with a chain? Looks cool, in fact I think it's my favorite HL so far. You gotta do a flat bed, but don't even think you could hang with my 2.2 comp rig.

No, its real. There is a video of it getting rolled and beat over at tamiya club. That truck looks good. I've been working on a chassis that will lift the belly a bit, I'll let you know if it works out.

You obviously havent seen TwistedCreations trail truck.

One question about the lift, have you had any problems inverting the front shackle? Ive done it a few times and it is pissin me off, is there a way to fix it?

Exactly what needed to be done to make it trail worthy. It actually looks to be in decent condition.

Beauty.

I took my bed off yesterday. And broke my bumper the other day. Then today I sized up a Savage bumper, and now here's your post. Sweet.

HAHAHAHA I actually plan on doing it. You never know the judges could go for mine. I wheeled it again tonight for like an hour and a half and nothing broken still......insane I say.

**Cool deadline was extended. I'll make sure to attach a video to that entry email.**
