Now I need to test and tune. I think the chrome wheels don't go too well with the red/black scheme. What do you guys think? We'll see how the plastic holds up with the HH 13t/3s combo. Maybe some VP wheels are in my future. I have to paint my homemade battery tray black so it blends in. I shoo-gooed the front light buckets together because I lost a lens and cover in the first 1.5 run(s) . The width of the axles and Rockbeasts is INSANE! I need to measure it. Also working on the links, ran out of rod ends lol.

This rig is a blast...I'm really having a great time with the build!

Those rockbeasts are awesome tires. Beware... They eat weak servos.

Awesome rig! Hope mine turns out half as good.

Looking good! Looks like it should be a pretty solid performer with the upgrades you've done.

It can but I moved it to the back underneath the interior (between the seats)

I'm with you on the chrome....way too blingy. Go with the black! The pitbulls look killer though!

Looking good young lady. You know what would make those blinged out wheels look good? Some aluminum panels. Maybe just a roof. Liking the paint a lot.
