Yup there will be a bunch in the rear for those huge shocks, possibly a full cage if it doesn't get too heavy.

Still contemplating the bed.. I could get more wheelbase without it

That's a nice build on both rigs. I especially dig the Cherokee.

^Thanks

Got some more work done on the chassis. Also decided to ditch the bed for some more wheel base - It's gonna look sweet all tubed up.



One of my output shafts came stripped and rusted. not sure how..

any ideas how to get it off? I need it on the losi tranny..

Sad to say it but the only way I can see is to hack up the drive line flange. If it were me I would leave it in place and just order new drive lines from Redcat. That way at least if you ever use the redcat trany the srive line is in place and usable. I have a couple spare redcat flanges if you need one. I don't have the drive lines but do have a few flanges with ball joint installed. Just pop off the drive line and use it. Let me know!

Give me a ring. I have a 90t that if we put on a 9t pinion and do a 59t spur it till outdo a 100t all day.

In that pic, the fenders are as is after applying the epoxy putty.

I am sanding them right now with 60 grit for coarse removal, and 220 to finish.

It looks too nice to wheel! Especially with how fast it is...I see it being on it's lid a few times.

^Thanks max, I made them up last minute, turned out nice

Here are some more shots of the trucks, they're taking a short journey to the sandbox. Seems like a good spot for a little track

You have a phenomenal skill level with the detail in these bodies. I've showed your Cherokee to countless friends and they were all impressed with it. Great job on both!
