Yup, build one. Scale rigs are all about the craftsmanship.
Homemade winch how-to

MSD sells one but I'd send them and email first. I'm not sure where Ben is.

That Blazer in my post above uses the Wild Willy parts tree winch. It looks really good.

Okay got the truck today and I love it!!!I am servo shopping now but I have a question....what would be the lowest OZ of torque I could get away with running this servo wise?I keep seeing servos with over 300 oz tq and it just seems unescessary for the way I will be running.

Nothing like getting a new toy to play with, especially from a good seller who knew what they were doing. When it comes to the servo the more power the better. Anything under 300oz will come up short in a tough spot, you always want to be able to turn your wheels no matter what. I run a Hobbico cs170 titanium gear servo (same servo as the Hitec 5955 just with a different label and about $20 less) and with 333oz of torque you cant go wrong. In my opinion spent the extra cash for a high torque servo and you will never have any steering issues, ever. Have fun with it!

I agree with the stance,the spacers are overkill,what brand/type of hexes would I get to bring the tires in more?

Damn dude, that is one nice find!!! You would have spent at least half that for those wheels alone. Great deal if you ask me. Heck, free shipping as well. You will be happy.

The wheels are fine. Just take off the spacers that are on there.

You can use the Axial or WK hexes but you may need to drill out the center hole on your wheels.

The green Axials have a set screw to keep the from falling off when you remove the wheel.

The 645 is the lowest torque servo you can get away with imo.
