Default Dan's MST CFX Bronco

Hi everyone,

Wanted to share my build and upgrades of MST CFX Ford Bronco.
I picked the kit version with Hackmoto 35T motor and Tritronic WP ESC from rcmart, added gensAce battery, FlySky GT3C radio and PowerHD WP 23KG servo.
It was quite capable in "stock" mode, I have a short video showing some performance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-5pXkN_2RM

However, with time I decided to upgrade stuff, stock wasn't that satisfying after all...
So here are my upgrades:
- Tekin Heavy Duty 45T motor (Hackmoto died after a few runs...)
- Went with the smallest pinion available, 16t, as I optimized this truck for pure torque and climbing, final drive ratio by my calculations is 1:50~
- Yeah Racing PTFE bearings
- Aluminum beadlock wheels with steel weights (front ones are heavier)
- Pit Bull PBX A/T 1.9" tires with their stock foams
- Additional weights on chassis (mostly on front)
- Aluminum links (upper, lower and steering), changed wheelbase to 270mm
- MST steel drive shafts (all 3 of them), had to use SX90 against rust as I sometimes run it in water
- MST aluminum skid plate
- 80mm Aluminum shocks, medium stiffness springs
- Misc accessories: fuel tank on rear, led lights on top

Here are some pics:
