Here are a few pics... The paint is not perfect and I had to glob on the glue for certain parts but I wanted it to be functional not just pretty.

Hope you all like it and feel free to comment!

you should add lower links to the front aswell. it looks like you got some axle wrap in the front.

Yep, I agree. You all beat me to it

I am working on some bent links for the front and will bend the links in the back for a total of 4 links. There isn't enough room for 4 in front and 4 in back even if i wanted to.

I'm also trying to soften the suspension. Possibly taking out the leafs and putting some shocks in??? I'm not sure... any thoughts??

Shocks are extremely long and you would lose your scale height. that and you would have to run a 4 link. you might want to experiment with a 4 link and springs? http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/att...1&d=1314149588
