Default DNA CFX comp rig

Here is the list

Radio : MX-3 w/3rd ch
Speed Control: FXR
DNA CFX Slingshot Chassis
DNA Dig
Losi Rock Claw Tires
Axial Transmission
Axial Axles
Revo shocks
axial heavy duty locker
Aluminum rear axle lockout kit HR
HD drive shafts & yokes
HS225MG Dig Servo
HS645MG Steering Servo
Stock rear-end gears: 38t ring gear 13t pinion gear
Spur gear: 87t
Pinion gear on motor: 14t
Motor: 55S Matrix V10 Crawler
Battery: CKRCís 3 cell 1500mah
Losi Grappler body
Ride height -3"
wheel base at 12.5"

x-mas list: BEC
need to lower my ride height to -2 3/4"

I also did what Bowtie did and cut the front axle mounts down flush, worked great. I didn't put every step on here benz; Bowtie, Jam MaxAmps and tqcookie covered it very nicely....their pictures look better and clear than mine also
I will weigh my rig on Thur. night when i start my
night shift and post it up also.
I really like this set-up now, once i lower a bit..even though the cog is center but you barley push on it and it's over on its lid.
Thanks DNA and all the other great builds on this chassis; Bowtie, Jam MaxAmps and tqcookie

Thanks for the comments all, I DIG this DNA CFX chassis, once i lower it and get a BEC, maybe a stronger servo, and lots of practice.....i'll get better at comps...I can't wait till i get the next comp off from work

Justgoingslow thanks...I will get with Rhett and ask him, I swapped shocks with him and i'm not sure which ones they are?

JUSTGOINGSLOW: The springs are 4.0 lbs jato springs. Same as these here.

Hey Dewayne, rig is looking good and works pretty good too. Paint turned out nice. Let me know next time you want to go crawling again.

That I'm not sure of. They are softer than what came on the stock shocks, but that's all I have to compare them with.
