its monster assault..i figured id steer clear of the normal green monster because thats common among crawlers..the panels are made from cans

the panels are made from a can! thats an awesome idea!

hmmmm... I can't really suggest any thing regarding wheels but axial beadlocks. their cheap and they hold their bead! I would use somrthing like them unless you are running a narrower tire.

can't wait to see this thing put together! I love tube chassis's!

You should go aluminum or delrin for your wheels. Itll save you money at the end.. Check out mayhem, vanquish or CAC. They make very good wheels!

or..... you could buy a set of wheels that are already narrower. Something like proline eight shooters would do.

I would just go with a set of Eritex beadlocks last I checked you could get a set for $65 there not really any more expensive then regular plastic beadlocks.

the front axel isnt hooked up all the way..thats why its sitting wierd in that way..but besides that it still sits weird

ok so heres what i have. and its not pretty. im pretty upset with the results. the shocks are way to stiff. it sits very oddly. and the wheels rub. idk what to do. o and the pede trans doesnt fit into the tuber. evil:

maybe shorten the front links and lengthen the rear, the rear shocks are to verticle lay the down some and make sure your pinion is at a good angle once you put your tranny in
