Nice Ken, getting closer and closer to bullet proof. Did you ever get the titanium lockers?

I got the Axial "heavy duty" lockers so we'll see if they can hold up I am scouring the vendor section for some "bullet proof" lockers. I am hoping to run at the hobby shop sometime this week.

Very nice first build! The DCV/pro is a great chassis...still getting mine set up the way I want it.

Any reason you got rid of the Badlands so quickly?
