I'm not aware of any pre made but they aren't hard to do. Haven't had much time to wheel this thing lately so I'm not sure how well the Velcro is going to hold up.

Got some wheel time with the growlers on. Not bad but the shorter wheel base definitely has a disadvantage in the climbing department. Wants to flip over pretty easy. Time for more weight in the front.

Bolted on some tf2 takeoffs I had sitting around.




Got my stainless rod today. Made my links up and mounted the body. Now I'll slowly acquire motor esc servo and another receiver for my radio then I can run this beast. Unsure what I'm doing for wheels but I'll be using the mini rock beast tires once they are available. And some quick poser shots

Hey what was the wheelbase before you shortened it to the correct length

I totally agree on the like button! Most of the stuff Iíve done on my crawlers Iíve done because Iíve seen someone on here do it and wanted to try it my self. Research and determination.

That is a really NICE looking Blazer!! I would be scared to scratch it. Good job! how does the Velcro hold up when you do roll over ? Did you do the paint job? If so, Wow! Jealous.

I still haven't painted it lol. And I adjusted the wheelbase so it fits the body better. And I don't use velcro I use traditional posts

The Velcro was ok. Iíve since done two other things with body mounts. 1 I used industrial Velcro which was real solid unless you took a decent tumble. 2 Iíve now tried using ring magnets and those work pretty good on a scale truck. I have rolled the truck theyíre on too hard yet but they seem solid so far

Maybe itís just the picture but looks like you could scoot the body forward a bit and it would be center?
