Got all the wheels mounted up and I can say Iím still as happy with them as I was when I first seen them.

Found another cracked chub, but I grabbed a spare set of HR chubs and knuckles from another awesome member on here!

Only a few things left to do! Clear body and cvds. If they donít release any soon Iíll be doing the ascender cvd mod for sure.

Just picked up a venture last night! It’s in transit as we speak. Can’t wait to get it running.

Initial upgrades:
Hot Bodies 4 link suspension conversion
Esc will be switched to the hobbywing 1080wp
Will run the stock motor until it dies.
Servo is a protek 100t
Lcg battery mount

Unsure about a tire/wheel combo. I got the charcoal body and I’d like to stay away from black wheels as it already is dark.

It cracked behind the screws (closer to the inside of the axle, I will take a picture of it once I swap it for the hot racing ones.

Some photos of the HR chubs and knuckles swapped on.

The chub broke right it in lol it was only staying in place because of the knuckle. Shouldnít have to worry about that too much now!


Broken





All swapped out with new parts
