Thanks! I'll be sure to get pictures of the final rendition, this set is temporary for getting the body mounted.

This set is just a temporary set to get the body mocked up.

Done a little work on the grille last night. Filled in the headlight hole and removed the bucket portion to end up with this. Still thinking about lights, but have a couple of ideas.

Does the transfer case in the venture count for sorcca points?

Been slacking, but found a bit of time to make the final set of sliders/body mounts. Also had time to mount the new servo and build the wiring harness for the battery kill switch so I don't have to pull the cab to unplug the battery between courses.

Electronic layout, still need to shorten a few things, but it all fits. Nice place for servo winch on the passenger side.

Found a perfect piece to use for the kill switch, Axial gel-cell battery accessory. I removed the mounting tab from the inside and then modified the XT60 male plug to fit inside.

Awesome sliders, nice to have extra mounting area with balance. That kill switch is great idea and I'm really liking your use of cover for it.
Keep up the good work!

Long time coming on updates......First off, work got in the way and I couldn't make it to nationals so it got left on the bench for a bit. Only to be tinkered with here and there until I decided to try out the Deadloc under drive transfer case and mess with rear shock placement, not fond of the shock mounting on the axle side, at least on the rear.

The Deadloc tranfer case is a very nicely made piece and comes with a flat Delrin skid, link risers made from G10, hardware and full assembled and greased printed case. Transfer case can be ran in 1:1 ratio as well for trail running instead of under drive, which is very neat option by simply moving the rear driveshaft to the 1:1 position. The front driveshaft and upper link do run into the electronics box to the point of having to trim a 1/2" off to keep it from hitting, and for the link, using a offset rod end from Axial tierod. Changing the rod end is only because you will need to use the lower hole on the Deadloc link riser to have enough clearance between upper and lower links. Deadloc does have how-to videos on their website that are fairly detailed, it would be a good idea for not so savvy or novice builders because of the modifications needed to make a smooth installation.

Moved the rear shocks down to the link mount location to improve shock angle for a smoother operation. But with moving them, I had to use shorter shock towers to keep the ride height the same in relation to the front. So rather than just building some out of metal, I grabbed a set of front SCX10 hoops and drilled new holes forward from the stock holes. Works really good and now I have a place to mount sway bar links to in the old mount holes.
