Default 'Dawg's MT 8.5

Big. Ugly. Fast! Built from parts I already had laying around, except for the C.I. trans upgrade. The stainless steel chassis was given to me by a crawler buddy, which worked out well for me. There are some CKRC and Integy alloy upgrades, Axial trans, aluminum skid and light buckets plus an old Clod body with some mods. The plan was to sand her out and give it a hotrod flat black primer paintjob, but I couldn't resist taking a few pics of the weathered and beaten look. A Novak 8.5 Bl system on 2S lights up the tires, and the cop lights give it some style . Obviously there's more work to do, but so far it's been a fun build.

Thanks guys, always nice to get some feedback. I put 3 5000 2S packs through her today and mechanically it held up just fine. I was not gentle either. The old Clod body took some hits, took out the grill, lower valance and tailgate...this thing has some brutal horsepower .

Sorry bud, never pulled out the camera cuz I was too busy having fun! It's already glued and patched up ready for more. My TF-2, Dingo and SCX-10 Comanche never left the trunk of my car today....I was all about wailing on the MT . Next time I'll snap a few pics.

Thanks for the kind words, guys . It was really just a "parts laying around" build, and the beater look of the body revealed itself after some sanding. The upper links are some Integy units I bought a few years back when the WK first came out. Being mostly a scale/trail rig guy, I almost forgot how fun it is to have a truck that really rips! The 8.5 feels almost like nitro, very addicting.
