Covered up the huge ugly holes I had originally made for shocks. Lesson learned if there’s ever another one in my future. Lol.

Haha! I wanted to keep the brushless holmes setup in it, so figured the rockjocks might handle that a little better. Been thinking about building another brushed one on the redcat axles now that I have those sitting around. Lol.

Shapeways servo mount for the jocks arrived, works great! Nice and solid! Need to get shorter upper links now and she’s golden.

Thank you! You just reminded me I forgot to upload the new driver and VPs in action haha

I guess that about wraps up this build, I learned quite a bit from this build. It ended up costing me a small fortune, but I’ll never get rid of it, So. Much. Fun. The VP rock jocks combined with the Holmes brushless setup and the built hot racing trans has made it unstoppable, at this point all I expect to break is driveshafts. The junfac shafts are meh imo, but they’re holding up.

Thanks everyone for hanging with me on this build! Hope to see yours soon!
