Default Hittman's mini

Here goes another one... Little back story first.. I had bought a rtr mini crawler about two years ago and was very happy with it. I eventually made changes and I was extremely happy with it... Well, one day I decided i didnt want it that much anymore and sold it. Three or four months ago my buddy was selling his and i got an urge for a mini crawler again, So I present to you the mini rockshow. He had it fairly stock but it still worked great. I added my touches here and there and now it is fitted much better to my crawling style. I am hoping my club will have a 1.9 class this year, and as of now it is looking like it. So, I am anxious to see how it will do in a comp situation. Now, onto some specs:

Chassis/ suspension:
T1e mini rockshow chassis
Stock mrc shocks in rear with 20wt oil
Mlm shocks with cap mod up front, 20wt oil
Stock T1e lower links
Stock T1e front uppers
Axial 60mm post rear uppers

Front axle:
Mrc Pro axle with metal lockers
LCC knuckles, C's, and Cvd's
Custom tie rod and drag link
Stock T1e servo plate

Rear axle:
Mrc Pro axle with metal lockers
Stock T1e rear 4link plate
BWD bomb proof shock mounts

Electronics:
Novak mini mongoose system
Cheapy 2.4 system, soon to be futaba
CC bec set to 6v
Savox SA-1283sg servo
Hyperion 3s 240mah lipos

Trans/ driveline:
Stock mrc driveshafts
Stock Mrc Pro trans with metal lockers

Tires/wheels:
Custom 4.25" mini rovers
RC4WD dc-2 wheels
1.9 Pit Bull foam in rear
Proline flat iron memory foam in front

Now some pics:






Link and shock position:





Front at 7 5/8"


Rear at 7 3/8"

I am so glad some one talked you into them wheels! They look sick! Tires look like balloons! Nice clean wires, good looking rig Christian..

Now.. the flex shot, two pics up, on the foam.. Is that a hole from shaving the sidewalls too much! You better get that guy that made them, to fix that...

a pretty as the blue screw in the servo is, i would definitely recommend against having an aluminium screw anywhere in the steering.

It holds tight actually. I run all aluminum screws in my sporty and that servo has 500oz of torque.. and I have never had a problem. Lucky i guess?? I will be changing all the hardware in this over to aluminum soon, but if i have problems with the steering I will change it out right away

Thanks man, They definitely changed the look of it.. I dont have the exact weight on hand. I will try and get that over the next couple days. I do know that the rears are unweighted and the fronts have 1.5oz, but i am not sure of overall weight.

Nice! Did shaving the sidewalls help that much or any at all?

Yes, It does make a big difference. When you are sanding you have to be careful not to go through the rover sidewall because it is already a thin sidewall. If you are not comfortable sanding, just cutting the side lugs off really makes a difference too
