Default "Eleanor" Wraith Build up

Just traded my SCX10 honcho for this Wraith.. I don't have to many things in mind for her yet other than just building it up and doing some rock crawling.
Here are some poster photos of her and I'm going riding tomorrow so hoping to get some action shots.






Specs:
vanquish links, steering
strc hubs and knuckles
integy 45t motor(temporary)
RR steel gears in tranny
proline titus wheels with 8oz in each one
87/16 geared
Proline Titus 2.2 beadlocks
Super Swamper TSL with Sedona foams
Losi Springs F/R
Stock servo(temporary)

your rig did real well out there..
i did notice you got ALOT of torque twist in the rear when i was
watching the videos i took.

slightly stiffer springs in the rear will help it out some.

unless you swapped the spur it's an 87t spur.
also has mip driveshafts
as for the torque twist it's running losi comp shocks with losi white springs in front, axial super soft red springs in rear.
i don't remember if i told you or not, but i swapped the ring gears around in the axles so the motor turns the normal direction now. i bet you figured that out tho!!

Well changed out the red soft springs in the rear for a little bit heavier duty losi spring.

You know.. honestly, I didn't even know that there was a coleworx buggy named Eleanor but that is one hell of an idea.
I might just have to look into getting something built up like that.

Well fried a BEC and my ESC somehow.. and now she is stripped and ready for new paint and new electronics!




I'm thinking as far as electronics:

Tekin 13.5T Redline
MMP ESC
32P 60/15 geared
HR swaybar kit(maybe)
FlySky FS-GT3B Controller and RX
Maybe 3S Lipo

any other suggestions? See anything wrong with that combo?
