Looks good, I am not positive but I think you have the chassis backwards, I think the longer side is supposed to go to the back.

Nice work, the body really looks good.

Do yourself two favors:
• Upgrade to Vanquish motor plates before you run it.
• Swap out those plastic upper links for aluminum. They flex really bad and make the truck unpredictable.

You should have modified the motor plates so that you don't have to pull the axles in order to remove the tranny

VP and BWD make great wheels. Eritex and Mayhems are also really good. But you can also narrow the stock wheels so that they will work with the Vp knuckles. I am not to sure but if you have a look in the wheels and tires section there should be a thread on Narrowing the xr10 wheels.
