Default rs10 wild build

hi everyone,
i'm rather new to crawling but i think i've done well here.
i'll be posting pics soon
so i'm building this rs10 to be a multi purpose truck, (basher that crawls) here's the part's i've choosen

chisel 2.2 tires
aluminum steering arms
hardend steel gear sets
and hardend drive pins
(need to replace) but i'm using and older pair of futaba ball bearing servo's
hobbywing programable 35 amp brushless crawler esc
zippy 3s 5000 mah battery
and 2 velineon 380's

i will be attempting to run both motor's off of this one esc, (as seen on youtube)
i did have to bore out the pinion inorder to fit the velineon motor.
and the battery is no longer removable. as i had to disconnect the upper links to install it.
i have choosen to stick with 4ws cause i love the turning radius. (when needed)
but tonight i was able to test it with only one motor, having removed the front motor to allow the axle to freewheel (steel gears=alot of dead rotating mass tonight)
i found that after reprogramming the esc 3-4x i dialed it in to allow easy slow starts and it did well crawling.
but when i opened it up on the road it looked to be doing about 50kmh.
i'm more than impressed for the $400 i have into it.
although clearly it has some major stability issues at high speed!
i may consider going to revo tires (not so good for crawling but will fix stability issues)
i will be sure to complete this post and add a link for a video, as soon i complete the truck.
thank you for your time
