Okay, so this is first time I've actually read through your build thread in its entirety and I gotta say....I wanna' see this thing in person!

I'd love to be able to build a custom chassis like that, but I don't have the skill or resources necessary to do so. Any chance you'd be interested in doing another one to accept the Rubicon body?

It's coming out very nice. Keep up the great work. Your fuel cell looks very nice. Can't wait to see more.

Propane is also used to increase fuel mileage and burns cleaner but also just looks cool in my rig lol

Ok finally got my Robinson Racing 14t pinion gear from the last place I thought would have it HobbyTown they never seem to have what I'm needing there unless its building material. A Huge thanks to FastEddy for getting the bearings I needed sent in a hurry great customer service by far. Next ill be up front shimming the the bearings for the VP brake kit I've had on this thing since they came out.

Two words for ya (F-ing Bombproof)

Yeah....oddly enough....I've had really good luck with the Hobby Town in Plano. They were the only ones in the area that had a Micro Trekker in stock when I bought it back in March. And I've had better luck getting stuff there than I have at Mike's in Carrollton, which is close to work.

Need to see this thing run in person when you get it back together.

Mikes Is great but it's a short course place for sure.
Ours has a lot of axial vehicles just not any parts oddly enough.
Your not to far from where I live like 45min at best.
