if you can pair the transmission from a trail trekker (or whichever of the newer models have the same transmission) with those redcat axles then you'll suddenly have a rig that can go fast. I mounted a brushless motor to it and ended up with this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoJweT8G_a0&t=4s

I think those miniqlo tires would make it pretty bad ass and still be grippy. either way, I'm excited to see the end result of this build if you do finish it. I love unique little micros.

That's"stupid"fast �� o man my chassie and tires wouldn't handle setup like yours.I understand 3s is a main reason of that speed.I agree sumo axles and trans is slow AF I have upgraded motor in it ,still slow but torque enough to crawl nice.
Hopefully tonight I will test drive chassie check how steering working and from there I will start on body.Up date soon;)

Great looking rig! I didnít know you could get them to a more scale look based on the original configuration.

I have a problem:( I believe because steering linkage flex between left and right side is different.Do anyone know what I can do to at least make that one side little bit more"relaxed"?

hmmm. not sure why you're seeing difference in the flex. is anything binding anywhere?

also, my guy was running on 2s. I'm scared of burning up my electronics with 3s. haha. I just used a cheap hobbyking esc and brushless outrunner motor and it barely even runs hot.
