Default My budget build Venture

Love these trucks! I’ve invested very little into it and it’s my favorite trail rig to date.

Upgrades:
Metal links
Tekno lcg battery mount
Knockoff 20$ servo
Rcscrewz (stainless)
1.9 China knockoff beadlocks
Hobbywing 1080wp esc
Pit bull rock beasts 1.9
Power hobby led front bar

Anywho, on to the pics

Looks good! I can't wait to start digging into mine as well. I don't think I'll do much to it either.

Apart from new servo and tires I've done nothing to mine, I think pound for pound they are the best truck out of the box.

Looking at the rod-ends, it looks to be the Crawler Central ones that I have.

I read a post from someone who stated that Proline K02s and 4.30" Proline Super Swampers rubbed on a HPI Venture. I assume this would be the same or worst with O.G. Rock Beasts? I can't tell from these pictures whether the body has been trimmed or whether the owner just ignores the rubbing.

Owner trimmed the front & rear fender flares. The O.G. Rock Beasts will rub. I know because I've been test fitting those as well. I like the way the O.G. Rock Beasts look on the rig, but depending on whether or not I want to cut the body... I may have to use a 4.2".
