Thanks for the props man
tower hobbies has them there dubro small nylon hinges cat# 119
That's not a TCS box it's a RadioShack 2x3 electronics box with scale diamond plate cover I bent and made. Very easy to do I must say. It has my MMP in it and the stock axial radio box has the lighting,receiver, and BEC in it tight fit everything has been sealed with RTV.

I bought the CKRC mount but of course it didn't work with my setup so I bought a sheet of .030 Lexan and made another mount and painted it black. If you want to just buy the ckrc mount and trace the front and make your own. As far as the extending the bumper out I used aluminum rod and cut them 1/2" long and drilled the center out the use longer bolts. I will buy another body later and do a crazy paint job lol. Hope this helps

Kyle what hardware are you using for the Hinges, I have a set of hinges coming in but it did not come with the hardware. I also like the HighLift Jack I just ordered one yesterday also 1/10 scale.

I wouldn't know about the stock tires I built this bolt by bolt
But I will say after I cut these they really started working amazingly.

2mm buttons screws with nylon locknuts I got them from the stock 1/18 losi pro chassis after getting my mini juice chassis. they seem to be the right size.

Awesome Wraith Kyle!!

I have a couple of questions.

Who makes the output shafts your using on your transmission?

Where did you get the scale diamond sheet you used to cover your radio box?

Thanks

Thanks man

Crawler innovations makes them very tough to tear them up highly recommended

I got the scale diamond plate from CKRC it comes with two 9x11 sheets you can cut it with scissors like paper very easy to work with.

Well a trip to two Best Buys and thinking I would get just the GoPro hero and left with the more expensive GoPro Hero 2 and then headed to Sports Authority to pick up the BacPac LCD screen. RadioShack because we were at the mall and got mini HDMI cable to watch it on the big screen. Now where did I leave my 400 dollars oh yeah at the service counter along with the frown on my wife giving me the look LOL
