I love these shocks but the collars are dumb!!!!

I used some cut down super light Traxxas springs

Found a piece of aluminum I modified for panhard mount on chassis


I've been using SDI driveshafts for years and love their durability and compact size.

Also had to use risers in the rear to adjust for the geometry offered by the rear F10 portal

Oh, shit...

Looks like the first use of this body in a custom crawler is going to be a dream build!

Damn, it's breathtaking - LOVE that set of rails - so perfectly chosen to go with the body (or is that the other way around?)

Very sleek chassis and accessories to boot. The use of VP steering arms should keep that rear end planted. Nice build sir.

I actually came back to drool over this build some more...

I wouldn't even try to be humble about this one - I'm thinkin' RC equivalent of a Ridler or GoodGuys award winner, or at least somethin' to be shown at SEMA.

Oh - I hope I'm not putting too much pressure on ya?

Body is painted internally with all Tamiya poly paints, and then externally with Tamiya Flat clear

I love the matte/flat appearance on the poly body!!!


Here is a couple pics of my ol Power Wagon with flat clear!

Power wagon is beautiful! Hot Rod is too!

I'm a paint on the inside and flat clear on the outside fan myself. My last few rigs were all done that way as well.
