So I found out the hard way that tamiya paint like to flake off of lexan. So I repainted on the outside and it looks much better imo

Got all the electronics squared away and hopefully water tight. Also chopped off and redid the ass end and made a drop bed.

The EB looks awsome I like the rear cage. Mine is in shipping and should be here Thursday just don't know what color to paint the body.

swapped the r1s for some axial axles, it narrowed it up a bit but i think in the long run these will be a better axle choice

well this is how she sits, im pretty happy with how it turned out. she isnt the prettiest girl at the prom, but she puts out. actually crawls really well side hills great. only thing left to do is find wheels with les offset, and move the dam tierod. i just noticed its off in the pics, must have got distracted while moving it.
