Default New life for an old WK

So my brother went on a scale trail run with me last Sunday and needless to say he got hooked, I let him run my old crawler converted WK and he had a blast so now the WK will be his but we've made a few updates since the last run. Trying to get it done for this Sundays trail run, should make it as long as the rest of the parts come. Tell me whatcha think.

RC4wd steel transmission gears
Maxx Shafts
HPI Heavy duty ring & pinions
Hitec 645 servo
East End Machine axle servo mount
Losi Crawler esc
HPI 35t motor
Axial SCX shock hoops
Locked axles
Axial beadlocks and Flatirons
Ebay crawler motor mount
SCX10 shocks coming soon
RC4wd cvds coming soon
And whatever my Bro decides to add
4link the rear

Talking Re: New life for an old WK

WOW!! Nice work Kincer. I need to slow the Sand King down some and throw my hammer tires on and then we could do some trail runs.

I disintegrated the motor in my Backdraft 2day :( the magnet seriously exploded. I will send u a pic.

But yeah your build is coming along nicely. Keep up the good work.

Looks sweet. Gets me excited about my purchase. Now I am sold knowing I can convert it to a more scale look if I want to.
