Personally, I think the sw3 is best chassis on the market, period. I wouldn't run anything else. The 2.2 class is still more about driver skill though, any well setup chassis can be very competitive if the driver knows the rig and can drive it well.

Alright, here are some pics I took in my makeshift studio. I figured I'd post these up before I post up the professional photos TURTLE took so mine don't look as bad.

Thanks for the compliments guys.
Yeah, it's going to hard to scratch it up at first, but this is no shelf queen, it will bet beat on pretty hard this season.

Thanks,Randy

Well I figured it's about time to update this thread since this thing has been through a couple revisions since the last update.

Main new items would be the VF Dig and finally a decent servo, a 5955TG.

I also sent my MSD wheels out to be anodized black. WOW, they look so bad ass now, I will never run a shiny aluminum wheel again. I didn't realize how ugly the raw aluminum looked on this rig till I got the wheels back, they look 100x better now. I just can't do bling'ed out stuff, blacked out is the only way to roll.

I also didn't even bother with the tiny servo recommended for the VF Dig and went straight to a 645. Made a simple little mount to replace the stock mount and it works perfect.

Here's some picture action -



















Also hacked the body a little more to clear the tires without rubbing, the constant rubbing noises were driving me crazy.

So this is what you do instead of rock racing!

What do the zip ties on the axle do?

Nope, been studying for finals all day, just took a break to finally upload the pics and post them.

Zip ties are a temp band-aide to hold the rear case together until the new one comes. The outer side of the case broke off at the c like they always do.

I also still need to install my new skid from Kris one of these days.

Thanks guys. I had to use my crappy point and shoot for these pics and the pics I just took out on the rocks this evening so they could definitely be better if I was using the nice camera. I'll try and get the pics I took just now up in a little bit.
