I did not use the inner lock rings. All you do is strech the GT's on to the wheel. Its very tight, so no glue, cutting, or lock-ring is required.

At a certain point before a comp I stop. Unlike JIA who sleeps in his shop the night before a comp

The diameter of the Maxx wheel is larger than the diameter of a clod wheel.

Since the GT's are made for a clod wheel, they're a TIGHT stretch fit onto the Maxx wheels.

No glue, no slippage, no inner beadlock pieces.

Not really a carbon rod stick, but it does use carbon fiber for the skid part of the chassis as well as the battery and reciever trays. The day of the comp was the first time that I drove this truck, due to a back order on a wheel axle, so I didn't have any time to work out the bugs. In the first stage I learned that a 17 inch wheel base is not good for turning. I have heard people say that the longer wheel base isn't good, but I did not realize how much it really hurts. So during the time between stages I shortened my wheel base, which also increases my ground clearance. In some of the pictures you can see that the truck has a higher ground clearance and is shorter than in others. My "chassis" is basically 2 vertical pieces of 1/4" lexan (1 1/4" x 3 1/2"), with a carbon fiber skid and 2 short pieces of brake line used as upper braces. The stick part is made of aluminum and is actually in 2 parts, the front shorter than the back. Both sticks are mounted to the tiny "chassis" and the lexan has various mounting holes, so that the sticks can be angled or straight. When the sticks are flat, the WB is 17" and has 5 1/2" of ground clearance. In the next position (the one I used after the first stage) the sticks are slightly angled with a 16" WB and 6 1/2" of ground clearance. And in the last position the truck has a 15" WB and 7" of ground clearance. Sorry I don't have any chassis shots (no digi cam).

I have a lot of work to do on the truck, mainly with the suspension. I had WAY too much articulation, and I really have no clue of how to tune it down. Just something I will have to play around with i guess. I took a good long look at Jason's truck to try to figure out a way to do my suspension, so hopefully I can get it figured out.
