Can we see a pic of the front and rear drive shafts? Some of the past pic's look like there at an extreme angle which will bind if not addressed.

Great looking rig bro.

ya, the front was really bad. but i was able to fix that when i clocked the C's.

i think the rear will be ok.





rear, sprung in first pic. compressed in second.













not much for a update. i got the receiver bypass adapter in the mail the other day, from Chris_The_Battery_Man.

was able to clean up the wiring a little more with this.
