Great looking chassis, let us know how it works.

you are definetly going to want to run oil in your shocks, it will make your rig much more predictable.

I like the idea of the 60/40 setup and that low-slung bad boy looks very capable. I'll be curious to see a report on how it crawls.

seems to crawl up the house wall almost touching the rear tires before it desides it want to go over backwards. Almost means about within a 1/8".

Have not done any real rock yet(snowing) but for the stuff I make it do in the house it seems like it's quite capable.

You're going to want steel or delrin links before you do any comps with that belly-dragger. Aluminum sticks to rocks like nothing I have ever seen.

I just finished mine 36 hours ago. I must say that it is amazing. It can crawl over things that other crawlers can't even do... the list of things is long... I'm now doing things that I didn't even consider trying before.... I hope to have some video soon but I won't promise cuz I'm so busy with work.

I'll try extra hard to get pictures posted.
