1st test completely stock... Very fun rig out of the box...
Suspension is a bit firm but with some basic mods its gonna be just fine...
Other then that, I really enjoyed my ride, fun and capable rig...
Irok tires amazed me, they are soft and grippy but easily hold the weight of the truck!
Looks stunning in the rising sun!

Love the pictures, looks like a good place to run on. Pretty sweet to have two of the same trucks. How did the stick tf do against your modified tf?

Pretty impressed i must say... It pretty much follow the the same lines... The shorter bed is a must and it have a very good approche angle...
Since the rig is completly stock, the suspension is a bit stiff and have less flex then my links tf2...
But honnestly, its a very capable rig out of the box and will get better with some basic mods and more runtime...

So... Sold my 1st Marlin because i modded it way too much... This rig is a natural performer...
So i bought another one and this time, stick to basics
- o-ring mods
- took off the smaller leaf springs
- took off the springs int the shocks
- better/stronger motor: rc4wd boost 45t
- stronger servo: 23kg
