Looks really good with the 60s underneath. I think it fills out the size of the body more.

It does! the longer wheelbase changed the balance making it climb almost as well as my Trail King! Big soft tires and tons of articulation help too! there are a couple of problems though.

Mostly having to do with those big soft tires and the big articulation...

I need good foams; the current foams just fold under the truck when trying to steer!

And the shocks are terrible rtr Wraith shocks that leak oil everywhere... But I built the truck to fit 100mm shocks, Kinda regret it now...

I made a new aluminum tailgate and bumper today...

Interested to hear what your plans are with foams and shocks... assuming you haven't addressed those issues yet. Man I love that rig. I never comment but it sure is enjoyable seeing pics. Looks like the most capable one of your group.

So I did a thing...



My plan is to use the inners, and cut the stock memory foams to get at least a little sidewall support...

Alright, I made a deal with a local guy I was crawling with on Sunday and scored a set of 100mm Bronco takeoffs for a really good price! Spring rate is a little softer than the stock Wraiths and they look good and feel smooth...

So I did another thing...



I was crawling yesterday, hitting some fairly hard lines, and I caught the rear bumper on a rock...

No big deal normally, but instead of backing out of it and trying a different line, I powered through! And carnage ensued! I managed to rip the rear bumper and one of the two mounts off the rear, making plastic body parts fly into the air with a Snap Crack, POP, and hinging the rear bumper away from the frame. I wish I had a video of it. After finishing the climb, Yeah, I made it, I picked up the pieces and pocketed them...

When I got home, I made the best of it, as I didn't have all the pieces anymore!

2 speed hooked up, winch too. put 4200mah back into the battery after the run, so not quite 1000mah per mile, but pretty good.
