Default HPI Defender 1.9 build

TLT axles locked with bearings.
Chassis MFM
R2D
High lift rims and tires

Still unsure about a lot of things for this build a lot depends on the chassis I will use.

Nice D90. Good job on the bed...I want to do the same to mine. What did u use to make the bed? Is it styrene? Looks more rigid than styrene.

Wow this project has taken a back seat with nationals around the corner it is hard to spend any time and money on this thing. Anyone want to trade a scale chassis for a nitro 1/8 buggy it would help this D90 get off the ground?

Anyway this is a picture of what I am trying for.



Yea I have a bit of work to do

Where have you been missed you at the last few comps.




Only thing I have done is cut the top off, and a little more interior work.

I've been around (working). On the other hand I wasn't able to pull the ETRC site up so I had no idea what was going on. I haven't tried it in awhile.
