Finally got this beast done, added some brass knuckles up front and brass portal covers all around. Some IERC bumpers finished this thing off perfectly.
I wasnít happy with the gearing, so I added 36% overdrive to both axles so I could gear the transmission down. Was able to drop to a 14/56. The thing runs super smooth and unreal low end control. It weighs in at 5lbs 14.6oz rtr with a battery. Pretty happy over all especially with the extra parts for the 4ws. I cannot wait to get out and test this thing.

Havenít been tempted by a flat rail build since selling the last coupleÖ until you finished this bad Oscar.

Hey thanks guys, sorry I kind of spaced on this thread. I was able to catch a small break in the weather last weekend. It was pretty cold and wet so traction wasnít the best and I need to play with foams, but it was pretty fun tooling around with the 4ws. I can see how having the steering mixed could complicate things when trying to compete or make certain lines but Iím going to let it ride for the time being.
Iíve got some things in the works for this thing also. Pics to come!

I do! Took it out for the first time last weekend and it crawls amazing! The str8 axle makes it a bit more challenging! Great rig

I finally took the time to upload my electronics trays to thingiverse in case anyone is interested in trying them.

Since I'm such a fan of my G-Speed V3, I decided to pull the trigger on a G-Shot build. Here's the list of parts:

V3 rails
G-Shot kit with Hardcore stainless links
TGH 2.low trans
TGH slipper eliminator
Dravtech shocks
Supershafty Capra steering axles
Treal knuckles up front
TGH Mild OD gears up front
HH 500v3 servos
Castle Mamba X Micro
HH 2500kv Snubnose revolver
TGH V1.1 wheels
CI foams
Hyrax tires

I'll make up some sort of tub rear bumper when I get some time, but it does well at my local spot. With a 1300mah 3s it weighs in at 5.8 pounds.

Pics to come shortly...
