Looks good man. I feel your pain on painting, Im waiting for clear weather and free time to line up so I can finally get my Suburban primed so I can keep the bodywork going.

Canít wait to see what you think of it when you run it

Man this thing was a blast. I got out and ran it for the first time today. Itís basically stock, I upgraded the bumpers. Still need to install the metals sliders and finish the full interior. But I drove it for about an hour n a half with the trailer attached the whole time. Was surprised and happy with its performance

Looks great. That's one of those places that you can easily run out 1.5 hours and never even feel close to it. Would be for me. It looks great with those wheels and tires but body needs some dirt and rash lol.

Apologies if I missed it but what Crawlmaster Sport are you running - plus pinion gearing? Just curious because I'm in the process of replacing the RC4WD 540 45t with a Crawlmaster Sport 550 15t ( original 14/64 pinion). Seems like a drastic change so I'm a little nervous but that's what HH said would be a good performance upgrade.



Thanks

HPD, thatís for sure. Iíve spent 5+ hours out at that particular spot. Itís a lot of fun with a group of buddies. Iíll have to double check the gearing, but itís whatever came stock with the kit. Iím running a crawlmaster sport 540 can 16t. I had a 10t 550 in it and it was a little much haha

Looking good bud!

I wish we had stuff like that in FL. Biggest rocks we have are Aripeka and what's left of the abandoned Cross Florida Barge Canal project.

Glad to see it’s a kit and not an RTR. You’ll get to make sure all the screws are tight with thread lock applied. My Marlin RTR had loose screws and no sign of thread lock.

Leaf spring trucks are fun to drive and take the scale driving to the next level. Lovin’ my Marlin now that my leafs are broken in.

Following along to see more.

Agreed, love mine very unique with a hardbody and once tuned it crawls very well! Always puts a smile on my face too.

Read through your thread and looked at the pictures, I know it was one of first crawls with it and the leaf springs need to get settled and worked in, but looks like super stiff, if you've got the small coil springs inside the shocks, remove them it will crawl much better.

Thanks man, I actually built it without those installed. It did loosen up a bit but unfortunately I swap rigs like crazy and this things on the chopping block
