Thanks Norm. Much appreciated coming from a great builder like your self. I sure could use a set of seats that are sized right for this thing and a rear bench. Pm me if you would be interested in making those.
Thanks
Clay

KILLER pics! This thing is looking badazz! I'm going to have to steal a bunch of tricks off this build. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... or something like that!

the boggers work great for trail running, not the best on the rocks but they sound like the real deal when trying to find traction. i have never ran the stock tires but i assume they are better than the stock compound, but i have heard good things about the r35 compound. dont have any video yet.

Hinged the hood and made new panels again. If y'all want the new panels produced let me know. they still wrap the front wall and these wrap into the rear, making a bed area.

Put interior back in. Added tool box in back just need to get some more scale goodies. Got lights installed front and rear. Sold the cage so now I have to design something new and different again.

Still figuring out what to put in the back. Wish the proline scale stuff was in stock. Started a fuel cell also.


I also swapped out the Boggers for the r35 ripsaws. Hopefully rc4wd will be putting their new compound on all the scale tires. Stinks to have such beautiful scale tires that can't perform as needed.

Very nice on the new idea on the gas tank utilizing the receiver box. Great job!

The Scx boxes work best for fuel cells.

Cage is bone stock at the moment. Got bored today and made the most expensive roof for a wraith to date, and it's only a half roof.
Aka copperhead.
