Well I installed locked up rc bearings from bumper to bumper and then hooked up a few drives shafts. The Holmes Hobbies ble came today. The brushless motor should be here wensday, so hopefully I can get a video up soon!

I got most of the hitch plate done. Best I could think of to hide rear shock tower. Sleeper is coming along I got a bed in it just need to cut windows and put roof etc.

Ok so I have to make a confession I had lots of fun figuring out how to get the rear tires to turn the same direction. I had to call in a favor. Thanks to SuperDrty and nerby.

So under the hitch plate is a rare earth magnet for helping me keep up with body pins. Super old r/c tip but when you change a battery the course always eats the pin.

I am enjoying building the homebrew chassis they are so versatile.

Here is a link to a short running video. It was raining and it just keeps climbing I'm super happy. I can't wait to get it out on dry rocks! I really do like the jconcepts scorpios tires. I have no weight in the tires just bmachinerc xr10 tubes.

Truck looks amazing, looks like it climbs amazingly well. Great job on the build and attention to details.

Well I owe you all the thanks for designing a super chassis it offers rock sold performance. I was shocked at how smooth it took the rocks today. I can't wait to do more testing.

Well if you watched some of my first running videos the magnets could not hold the bed on. So I used the stock body mounts and hid them in the bed of the sleeper.

I will eventually tidy up the sleeper and I'm going to have the wires cleaned up as well.

I just added a hot racing locked diff hub spool to the transmission that should help keep all those Holmes Hobbies horses inline for a while.
