Here are some updates for ya! I changed the chassis a lil so it sits lower and a little more realistic. Plus it now has a riding buddy too...lol!

looks good man!

to get a more realistic look.. take the body and wheels off.. cover up the interior and spray paint everything to do with the under chassis with flat black...

Good idea, just havent worked on it in a while. Been working on my super crawler. The last thing i did to the avalanche was open up the wheel wells more. And i am in the process of checking out light kits for it, Tamiya has a sweet hookup but i gotta check with them to see if it will work. Thanks guys for all the feedback!

Well i got some 2.2 Rock Stompers for this rig but ive noticed they are narrower than normal and dont fit my beadlocks. What wheels would you recommend for them?

OK its been a while since i updated so heres a little something. I opened up the wheel wells for more wheel clearance. Also i took some advice from the fellow crawlers on here and got some 2.2 Rock Stompers for this beast. And these just came in today...2 sets of 8 shooter beadlocks, one set(black) for the Stompers and the other(chrome) for some Losi's Claws i won at a comp. Will post some more pics once they are mounted up.
