Hear is a few shots.

Deal on the wheels.



Very nice water proof case.

Did you take the shocks off for those first few pics?

Have you got a 1/10 to photo for comparison? How do the shocks seem, and what sort of ground clearance can you get?

It sits low, around 1" GC. Shocks are 3" in front 3.5" rear. I do plan on up-grade the shocks. Well most other parts as well.

Here's one next to my TB-01



Here's another next to a Slash 4x4



Overall I think the size is good.

Cool, so the body is just sitting real low. Ok for drifting/gymkhana rally I suppose, but you'd have to raise it heaps to go off road.

Nice! Digging the wheel/tire combo. While I like the Ford body, hoping HPI adds a few body styles... maybe bring the old subaru rally bodies.

It does droop out well. I think with some off-road tire it will be fun.

Well after work I raised the rear body post arm. I think it looks a lot better.



Here it is drooped out.







After work I took it to a local Baseball Field. I am in love, this has to be the funniest car I have own. The drifting in the drift was killer.
