Default Started my 1.9 trail course on the property...

I found a pretty sweet spot next to the river where I am building a 1.9 scale course... Pretty fun!

Here are a couple photos of a friend and I driving this weekend. I will get some overall photos of the course - if you have any suggestions; please post em...

Man great looking rig. I think the 1.55 may look cool but also may be to small..lol For motors I love my 35T and would say would be perfect for your truck.

Thanks TAT... I agree. I bought some 1.55 wheel/tires. They look PERFECT for the body, but the axels and hubs just look wayyyyy to big. I will save them for the yota axels I plan to put under this EB in the future... Hopefully they will look more scale. If not, I have a contigency of getting a 1:14 scale LR3 for em.... Afterall, you cannot let a good set of tires go to waste - right.

Thanks,
Mike

Nice truck, and NICE COURSE. Looks like you have lots of "fertile ground" for scale crawling. Keep up the good work.

That is a great idea!!! I completely forgot about the FXR. I could really use the smaller sized ESC!!

I have decided to stay with 1.9's... I bought some 1.55's and when I got them next to the truck - nope...

Thanks guys!

Mike

Awesome! Are those delrin leafs? I have leafs front and rear on my jeep and they flex real well too. It probably helps that I have a all steel body and it weighs about 10.5lbs
