Looking great bro! I really like the flexed out shots. I'm getting right at 3 1/4" outta my little comp crawler that's with the opposite tire being on the sidewall.

That's impressive but for this build i didn't want to go overboard with flex and cut more from fenders and put back cage higher.I still like scale look more over max performance.On beginning I was toying with building ultimate crawler but I decided I love scale ;)

That operation is not for feint hearted.First you need couple of longer screws (easy part)and second thing (do it on own responsibility)cut inside lip on tire not all the way just enough material to mike it possible to squeeze assembly together.I hope it is making sense.

Is 95% done.I took off back cage leaving bed and back window guard.Now probably I will add some more scale touches and maybe hunt down miclo tire to make spare.
Now is time to make something with yota axles and rest of the parts I have.Definitely I want make trial rig.Hopefully soon I will start working on it and start another thread.
Cheers micro maniacs.

I need to apologize for "95% done",it's never gonna be over hahaha.I didn't like how bed was looking specially side panels.I cut and bend some sheet metal , cut bed flat and bolt some scale diamond plate on the top.I'm not super happy (could be little bit more clean)but it is better then before.

Bumper upgrade! I'm little bit disappointed on rc4wd craftsmanship but I decided I don't want to send bumper back and who knows if next one would be any better.I like it regardless of imperfections.I can't wait to put everything back together and get it on the rocks before snow.Definitely I like a weight of it ,my rig needed some on the front.

Yes i like scale also, nice little HotRod, regarding the bumper. Looking at it, are you talking about the mold seams. Supposed to look round but does not?
You can accent the round contour, with 180 sand paper. Glue some on something flat, so it sort of represents a file, work it over. Just need to knock down the parting lines. Will not take much, do not try to get it completely round as the face and rear are. It is a visual affect you are after, not a true measured round.

Yeah the long screw deal is the ticket for tire mounting
