Default Trophy Truck V2.0

I have been gathering parts to build another trophy truck but this time take it up a notch or two, more scale and better suspension. Got this lovely box delivered today containing a aluminum centered beefy rear axle done by Metal Concepts RC (check em out)...

You running the Slash 4x bulk head or doing a custom tabbed mount setup? I was checking them out at RCX last weekend. Best looking stuff out there by far. You running the "new" link mounts out back as well? Because of the tire selection, I'm guessing you are not building one with the Axial TT body in mind. Correct presumption???

I am going to do something custom for the front bulkhead but will use a stock one til I get it made. The rear link mounts I have are from STRC yeti set, but not sure if they are what I am going to use as of now, I will be using the Axial TT body and figure out the wheel and tire combo later. Just gotta start building and address the issues when I get to that point. I generally don't have any draw out plans i go off of just kind of wing it as I go...
