Looks good Dez. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to hear how it does on the rocks with all your changes.

Thanks, I have high hopes for the CC. I am a huge fan of the MOA/MDA axle design. I think that these axles along w/ the alterations and modifications I'm making will lead to a very capable little crawler!

it will be interesting to see how this pans out. dez, dont let us down !

Well I played w/ the CCZ for a bit this afternoon and I like the results! First I mounted my J Concepts Rock Steady body that I was using on my Berg, it look like it was made for the CC!



I then found another set of links and moved them to the location that 4xFord suggested. They fit great and look at the difference in clearance.



Little closer shot.

That's a great idea I wouldn't mind if we (MNRCRC) did something like that.

Yeah, we have a few guys w/ TLT axles that are not being used, and a few w/ the CC, so we decided why not do a smaller class?

With the Losi Mini Crawler also available, I'm sure we'll have a spec class for it as well.

So much for not having any options!
