I could definitely tell a difference, not as tippy and much more clean articulation. I canít wait to get it on some dry terrain with the new wheels n tires. Hoping the wheels give it a slight wider stance, and I may consider going a bit wider if so.
Super happy with this thing so far though, Iíve got some knk spacers coming to clean things up. The transmission held up and didnít chew the spur gear but I know it could be better.

Hereís the moment youíve all been waiting for... fleabay wheels showed up today. Love the look not stoked on the wheels themselves. Also I may have gone slightly too big on the tires lol!

This makes me happy. Amazing what a change of shoes can do.

The tires are big, looks like the rears almost touch each other lol.

Thanks Phildirt! Iím about to take it out so Iíll report back with a performance review. Yea... thereís a gap and they never come in contact so Iíll run it and see how she goes. I do know the axles are closer together with this chassis, because if you run the stock pass-thru it requires you to shorten the already very short driveline lol

Got to run this thing a little yesterday, and within minutes I could tell the tires were the best thing I could have done for this rig. For being as long as thing thing is, the lines it tackles doesnít even make sense. This thing continues to impress me and I donít even think Iíve scratched the surface of its capabilities.

Iíll be switching it over the the castle 2850 slate, the hobbywing is great, unreal drag brake, but the low end control just isnít there for me.

I think it looks perfect. Not too big IMO, bigger the better.

They are the 4.7inch Landmines correct, not the class1 4.19inch?

Hey sorry guys, I didnít get any alerts for this. Thanks for the compliments! Savage, correct theyíre the 4.7 landmines with stock foams for now.

Soze, that it is! My buddy was struggling hard on a line with his brand new Brazin atl pro truck and this thing took a couple attempts but ended up going right up. It continues to impress me.

Bbeck006, thatís the East fork Lewis river up near Yakolt in Washington state. The spot is called Lucia falls and man is it a fun place to wheel, especially later in the year when the water levels are down and itís warm out.

Idk if this will turn out, but hopefully it does and youíll get an idea of how many people were out there.. too much of a crowd for me personally.
I did have a guy ask me if it came out of the box like this lol

Idk what do yíall think? Iíd paint it a different color. The best part is, 2 screws and a couple zip ties to swap between the cab and the Umg body

I've been trying too get a co-worker/fellow driver to take a trip out there, might have to show him your shots. I live up in Blaine, WA. Not much to drive on in my immediate area.

Definitely looks like a great place to wheel!

Iíll have to try and get out to the South Santiam river near where I live in Oregon sometime this summer.

Iím still tinkering with the cab, Iíll need to design a mount if so or definitely a flat bed.
Even thought about seeing what the Umg bed looked like mounted up to it.

Smc, yea it would be a bit of a drive, but if you could make a full day or even weekend out of it I think it would be worth it. I drive a little over an hour.

Bbeck where about are you? We wheel at northwest hobbies and the Lebanon dam down that way.

Hit Lucia falls again, got a solid hour of run time in. This rig impresses me over n over again. I didnít get a chance to swap the motor, Iíll be doing that this week and ordering some softer springs, along with a Holmes V3 servo sooner than later

Small update, got the castle system installed, I swapped to the traxxas yellow springs, the truck sits lower now and I hope itís less bouncy. I also swapped to 70wt shock oil which I can already tell is too much for 2 of the shocks, not sure whatís going on there but Iíll likely get another pair or set.

I did the high pinion swap for the rear axle, driveline angle was definitely improved and worth it IMO. Did some shimming on the trans and that seems to have solved some issues there also. Taking this thing out again this weekend so Iíll report back on the changes
