Step 2 & 3: Transfer Case and Frame Rails

So far really impressed with the organization of this kit. All the parts are all well laid out. The "QC Passed" sticker really means something. No extra parts left over, no missing parts. Someone must really be inspecting these parts.

I live in a community with a nice dry rock creek (no water).

My kids are bugging me to take them to the park. This park has a creek and parts of it is dry.

Yes, I've been happy with the one I put in the Ascender so far. Bought another 23kg WP one.

I ordered a K2 servo from ebay. I am going to try that in the Sawback.

It's good. I like the quality of the plastics and the organization with which the kit is packaged.

You can check some of my build videos out.
