Is the rear axle guard still on there? If so, get rid of it. I like the torsion stick design, how is that working out for you?

I took off the rear skid plate. I needed it when I had it as a 2.2. The tortion stick has been the best I've used. Used it on my 2.2 stick all last season with no problems. I have only had 20 mins of testing, but it did great... and I dropped alot of weight off of the top too so I can only imagine it doing better. Heres a pic of the body I painted.

Nice rig and I like the paint, it's different.

Those stickers look really familiar for some reason

I like those axles. Are they clod? They look skinnier for a clod.

Clodstall:
Those are a 4/5A Elite 2000. The SC cells don't fit with the beadlocks unfortunately.

Stallion1967:
Those are just plain ol clod axles. I run a much narrower wheel base for the gates and the only thing mounted on them is the servo.... not much else on the front axle. Just an optical innusion.


Thanks for the feedback guys.
