When detailing the small stuff like the lettering. Sharpies are your friend.

Yeah I did that with the radiator cap and it made it like a faded black. I do love sharpies though they really make a job easier. Get that rig of yours on all fours already lol. Love the beadlock rings you got going on there btw

I only use them on the really small stuff like lettering. You can also use paint and tooth picks for really small stuff.
My chassis should be done this month.

Thanks man it's a long build don't think I'll ever be done with it.
Rogue Element Components is not making them at this point in time but he said eventually he will make another run of them.

Got alittle surprise after doing a shakedown on the new setup. Seems that RC Screws bearings don't like high speed setups or the locker bonded the axle up by the two set screws. Fast Eddy bearing will be replacing these thank god I bought them two weeks ago.

I just cut the axle ends shorter and then shaved the VP wheel hubs down to
fit the Rogue Element Components hub nuts. The reason being is the hub nut runs out before tightening the wheel. Then after that you can't tighten it down all the way because the tool doesn't allow to go past the VP hub adapters. You can shave down the tool instead but I shave my VP hubs instead.
