Here's some from the run that killed my Super Rooster...............

Drivin' in to each photo..............and more importantly, driven out also. No posers shots here.............................









EDIT by Griz:
The wheelbase is currently sitting at 15.75", and seems to work well for most sittuations. The chassis is designed by myself, and is fully custom.

9T/10T front/rear pinions
Mag Mayhem motors
ClodMod Racing motor mounts
Super Rooster ESC
Hitec HS5945MG steering servo
rear steer locked out
Modified Stock Clod chassis
High clearance, steel over aluminum lower links/ aluminum upper links
ThunderTech upper link mounts
Integy MSR4 aluminum piggyback shocks
Losi LST's on RPM offset Clawz
HeydCo Wheel adapters
