I just have to figure out which brushless Holmes to put in it, I am thinking about the Puller Pro 2700kv with the Trailmaster BLE... I am thinking that the 3500kv PP might be too much..

thats what I am thinking as well... 2700 on 3s with a ratio between 5:1 and 6:1 should be just about perfect...

If you change your mind, I got a 3500kv PP for sale. I'm looking at 2000kv-ish on 4s in my 6x6.

I got my Iroks on finally, along with my black gmade steel beadlocks. I think it looks pretty good now, plus it crawls better with the Iroks due to a softer stickier compound and better tread..

Back in my neck of the woods Iroks are the best all around tire I think.

I got the MMP installed and am waiting for the mail to deliver the 2850kv today. I cleaned up my wiring while waiting this morning and it looks like the mail wont be here before we go to our new property to inspect the progress. I will have to install it when we get back this afternoon. I think this will be just about perfect for this rig and it will allow me to see how well the new castle motors stack up to HH Puller Pros....

I got the motor in, I am lousy at documenting my changes with pics...too excited to get it done lol

My wiring cleanup didnt go so well, I reckon I will have to try again when I get into the new home with my new larger garage lol

edit: At some point I am going to have to make a better looking rear cab mount to replace the hacked one that is there now. That mount used to be a wraith front shock droop mount until I cut it in half.

I had some scale bits from a body/chassis I bought off the classifieds and moved them to the 6X6 while I build up the new rig. I may just leave them on this rig!

I changed the headlight bulbs to the warm white LED's I got last week and I like them much better, they have a more scale color like they do on the Scout winter project...
