Here is a update on my Sportsman. I am going to re-map out the wiring a bit more but I got it running and took it out to a WARCRC event last year. I can't wait to for the new 2018 WARCRC Crawler series.

Nice build
What does it weigh RTR?
What is your track width?
Also, thank you for posting your complete foam set up

Looks great man, I saw the wheels on Failbook and thought they looked mint, even better when attached to the body.

Weight? Track width? Come on man, I don't know that.... I am a scaler guy trying to play in the crawler world...lol. But kidding aside, I don't have a scale and I am still playing with the hub selection to clear the knuckles and etc. I will post a update later this week. BTW, no worries on the foam info.... I more put it in the build thread so I can review it later and remember what I used.....hahahahaha.

Thanks! Yeah, the over head light I am using for my scale garage was a little too bright while I took those pics.... lesson learned.

Nice rig!
Can't you put the FXR up front, close to the battery?
It would be in a better position (front and low)...

If you turn the mounts for the servo around so the servo sits closer to the axle housing, pull the c hubs off and clock them 1 spline further back and drill new holes to secure them you will gain a good bit of steering and be able to remove the balls spacing up the tie rod.

Great pictures and a good looking rig!
What do you use the tray behind the BEC for?
You could place your electronics there or the battery and improve your CG...

It's been on the to do list, always a work in progress.

Justin: It was a old lipo tray, just left it after I put the lipo on the side to help with sliding.

Justin: Na, I don't mind my FXR up high, I am not a national champ... just drive for fun....lol. I just think it helps me keep it out of the rain a bit too.
