I'm pretty sure there is a Traxxas set that fits, though I'm not sure which one. I've already bought some Tamiya steel ones (front and rear) from an eBay seller in Japan for $44 + $5 shipping. Now I play the waiting game.

It really got me upset because I had a bid on a set for $21 but somebody jumped in there with 3 seconds left and got me by a dollar I was using the eBay app on my ipod touch and I nearly threw it across the room

I used to skate around the years of 1988-2000. That was well before DGK though. But I got the DGK sticker with one of my Tech Decks so I stuck it on there. I have like 4 Tech Decks. I just picked up a Paul Rodriguez, the type that looks used, to go on the roof rack of the FJ40.

Now I'm probably too fat to skate I've still got a couple old decks from back in the late 90s early 2000s in my mother's garage.

New parts.

STRC axles and lock-outs









So I end up with two high strength Tamiya axle ends that I'm not using and also have two extra bearings now.
Tidy rear axle though. The amount of screws and nuts holding a CR01 axle together is just ludicrous On a good note, the inside of the axle was pristine and the grease looked perfect. This is after a year and a half of running in the dirt, mud, beach sand, submerged in water, etc.

looks really good, i like the trimming of the rear servo bed, i trimmed it but not to that extent, i must admit, it looks good, still strong? no flex upon full articulation?

I noticed that mod myself, I think that'll have to be my next tweak. I like those lockouts! Really cleans up the rear. Sadly they will not work with my portal setup.

Thanks! Thats a nice place to run, Mohegan park. There's about 5-6 individual places around the park to run and you can trail drive to each.

Hey I just saw a plate like that last weekend. Is that the new style NY plate? Going back to the orange/blue instead of the white/blue? I couldnt tell if I was looking at a different version of an older plate or if it was totally new.

Yes the new NY plates! They look cool (Old). Now I do not have to track down a set of 1956 NY plates for my Willys since these look old. I did not want to put on the White plates on it. HA!

They had me confused when I saw them since it was the first example I've seen. It was at a car show last weekend.

I don't know why but I just love the CR-01 cruiser. It's just a thing I can't stop loving. For me it's my favorite crawler of them all.. I love the looks on yours though it is just superb.
