Default Axialfest DC Blazer build

I am making it my mission to finish this Yeti and bring it down to Axialfest this year. Got a smoking deal on a DC Blazer body and found this yeti laying around the shop floor. No real inspiration on this build. Just shooting from the hip.

Parts list so far. Some on it and some on the way:

DC blazer body
Metal geared trans
HD diff gears f/r
VP locker in the rear
Currie centered rear axle
Ucfab swaybar kit
VP knuckles
2.2 VP rock stars
2.2 treps
VP trailing arms
VP upper links
VP turnbuckles
Gmade 103's up front
VP steering rack and double shear kit
MIP rear shaft
Dlux modded front housing

I always find myself starting with the sliders. Seems once those are done it gives me a good start point for the cage. My style is simple, clean, and tight to the body.

hmmmm I'm guessing this ain't yer first rodeo

I doubt my inexperienced ass could say or add even one thing of interest or relevance that would help or interest you...so I'll just say it looks like it's going to make mine look like a kindergarten hand turkey!

Man I got a set of those sway bars on the way, and I have to concur with your sentiment here: " SO Sick!"

Here ya go! Not exactly the original design I was going to do, but simplicity wins every now and then. I like how it turned out

I'm admittedly jealous and I might even be pouting just a little over here as my sad attempts at doing a nice lid seem to get thwarted at every turn....but it's nice to see yours coming along nice!

Would you make a kit and sell the sliders? Those are sweet and so is the body on the yeti.
