I really like the wheelbase and overall stance on this one so far. The 1.9's really set it off. Looking forward to seeing what you do next.

I was thinking about rod ends tied to the middle of the rear shock hoop but I'm gonna try to notch some chit so it looks seamless.

Also planning on a bumper reduction and a tummy tuck.

Good choice in colour, our 1:1 buggy & 1:10 are the same colour

Not sure if I'll keep this roof because it brings attention to a center bar that I don't like.

Suggestions on paint? Thinking black but I have metallic orange and alclad chrome sitting in front of me.

I dont have a better pic of that roof when it was shortened, but you can see the netting in the center. Might not be a bad idea

Cheering for steering

Still waiting on a reply from Hulksta about my smash plates so steering is on hold. Same with the rear upper link mount. Happy with the results so far.

Ok, your pictures have convinced me to take my extra parts and start a 1.9 build of my own. So I've gotta ask, what are your lower link arm lengths (eyelet to eyelet)? I REALLY like that stance & wheelbase.

4.25 rears
3.65 fronts

Gonna add .5 to the rear because the tummy tuck sucked the axles in but I'm happy with where the front axle is.

Total wheelbase is at 12" compressed and 11.8 at ride height

Wishing I centered the skid plate meow. Front drive shaft angle is fawked. If you're gonna tummy tuck put this into consideration.

Couple more pieces of the puzzle showed up. Wide hexes from a horizon stadium truck so I could clear the dlux knuckles with axial 1.9"s.

And a 3pk and micro rx from wild bill for a price I couldn't refuse

Playing with windshield supports to try to blend the roof panels.
