Congrats on finally getting a Wreckluse chassis.

I got one a year and a half ago and never regretted the purchase.

I built it using Axial axles, tranny and links.

I wanted to use styrene as yourself for the inside of the rig but used plywood and balsa instead.

I was using the G-made shocks but switched back to the RC4WD shocks with no oil.

will keep eye on your progress.

GOOD LUCK!

Welcome to the Wreckluse club . I run Traxxas Ultra shocks on mine (3.5-3.75") with Rovers. I love the "go anywhere" ground clearance and grip.

The large Axial light buckets will work. I reamed out the stock headlight areas on the body and shoe goo'ed the bucket/light grill in place.
