I'm glad you approve, the old car worked very good for the quick throw together and slight tweaking I did on it. I've wanted to try the AR60's since they came out but just never did. I'm finally doing the Sucker Punch the proper build it deserves.

Looks good man!

Gotta love the SP for its nice clean, smooth look for sure!

I think I might have to steal your battery mount idea....

Almost running again. I still need to finish a few things, like remounting the electronics (not real happy how I put them in), shaving the tires, and making a servo tie rod. I'll have to paint up a new body also since all the orange is flaking off. Here's how it looks at the moment.

The rebuild worked good today at our club comp, I took first for its maiden comp. The sway bar worked great, best I can describe how its works is it takes the floppiness out of the car and makes it more stable. Im also digging the AR60 axles with the Dlux goodies, I can get everything nice and low and the body no longer rests on top of the servo. The car worked killer, only thing left to do is to play with the steering to get a little more throw out of it. Here's a few pics from today.

It was a nice warm 70*+ day, nice change from the cold and wet we've had. Thanks again for the help last night getting this set up and working how I wanted it.

Thats what I was thinking.

Good job Chris!

I like how you set your body. I think I will do the same. It should really make things easier to mount my battery and give more clearance all while being able to slam it. Thanks!

I am loving my Sucker Punch, looks like you are too!

Nice work Chris
Congratz on the win
Looks like 2 SP took first this weekend.

Just loving this chassis and how it works.
Just need to fix the rear tire lift.

Chris Did the swag bar get rid of the rear tire lift?

I had no rear tire lifts/unloading, the car stayed planted. I would recommend the sway bar. I thought it was kind of gimmicky and not sure if it actually provided a benefit on a crawler, but Im now a believer in the sway bar!

Sweet that's awesome to hear bud.
Looks like I will be ordering one soon

Oh it also looks like you will have 4 or 5 of our club down for your May 10th comp
Wish I could make this one but sadly I can't
