Off the bat, the packaging was awesome.
The instructions were easy to read, mostly picture's.
Braceysdad could build this truck.

I love this new tranny and tranfer case. Having a 2 speed will make double the fun.

Lucky monkey bastard... What motor/esc you goin with?

If that tranny/tcase proves to be durable, it'll be a viable replacement for the morbidly obese summit tranny.

The gears in the tranny and transfer looked beefy to me.

The tranny has a Internal ratios:
1st 3.47:1
2nd 1.27:1
I hoping the 27 turn still has enough torque in low gear. I think it will.

Have you ran your 35t yet and how does it do.

The one thing I liked was how well it fit together, thats a machined chassis, it has a notch for everything.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then there's these notches that don't have parts for, makes me think RC4WD has something coming out later for this chassis, The notches are on both sides.

I saw somewhere a mention of a 4 link kit coming. Maybe link mounts?

The more pics I see of this thing the more I like it. Please keep us updated on how it performs and durability-wise.

4 link is my bet.

If there is a pic of anything you want to see, just let me know.

Here's what I got so far on the paint. I couldn't find the shade of pink I wanted so I went with this. I still got to sand it down and I'm going to put a flat clear coat on it.
