I am excited to see this build!

most guys in utah run the axial machined links and cut the long side down to the inside of the first hole and thread them for 4mm revo ends!

a couple others run custom stainless bent links or cut down STRC bent links!
always with 4mm rod ends though!

here is a pic of an original nino with the axial links!

its been a while but i had a few more runs on it and this thing crawls very well
i spaced rear uppers out about 5 mm.
then i countersunk tthe skidplate holes so theres less to hang up on.
siped all four tires.
all uppers and front lowers have been replaced with deliron links
i will be going to hobbytown on saturday for more tuning the rear is wayyyy to soft with the losi springs.
