Talking My 1.9 newb build :)

hey all! this is my frist purpose built rig

yeah i have a high lift and a FJC XC...but i want to be with the cool kids

so this is what i am thinking

well actually lemme show you what i have soo far.

Spektrum DX3.0 (new style)
Spektrum Reciever
Hitec 645 or Airtronics (200 oz. not sure which model)
Bruiser body <-- FINALLY! ... Need color...was thinking about flat black but i might want to do something wild
Chassis - Bruiser Chassis
Motor: either a 55t Lathe or a Holmes hobbies motor (not sure which one)
Trans: RC4WD R2
Axles: TLT LOCKED
ESC: Not sure (because of motor decision )
Suspension Setup: Thinking about a 4 link in the rear with leafs up front (maybe some diaz leafs)


i kno i have no pics yet ... but you all know what tlt axles and bruiser bodys look like

not sure what look i am going for yet...i want it to be 1.9 but i might go 2.2 depending on the look of it as it comes along....and due to my age this build might take a while

Thanks for looking and all suggestions are welcome

Sounds like it's going to be a sweet build. I think the rc4wd bruiser chassis would be sweet and you can't go wrong with brushless.

If you go with the 55t use the Mamba Max for killer dragbrake.
Sounds like a nice build.

OUCH... What happen to that poor Cab? Looks like it has been through the Ringer and back. I would have left the piece that was chunked out of the back door on the passengers side.

Here is a reference Pic to show you what I mean about the back portion of the door.
