Thanks.

Tamiya makes some aluminum upgrade shocks that might work well. I'll have to check some out.

The camera is a Nikon D40, most of the shots were taken from far away with a 55-200mm lens.

Oh yeah, I remember that.

How about these GMade ones on the junfac site

Don't know if anyone has had a chance to test them and give an opinion.

Hi Guys, just browsing around, nice looking rig and great pictures. By the way, we make threaded shock bodies/collars/retainer upgrade kit for the CR01. Please check it out when you get a chance:

Those look really nice, if they have a good reputation, I might pick up a set of those.

Now with trail/rock content!
New wheels finally on and 6oz in each front now, here's some pics from this afternoon between rainstorms



























































The weight really helped, big difference from when I did this on the original wheels unweighted. We'll see what happens when its dry!

First i want to add that your truck is amazing in these photos but im sure you heard that already. Ive been looking at this thread for a while just scoping out the pics and I had a question on your swaybars, did you ditch the front or no cause in one pic I can see the rear but not the front. Thanks.

Thanks,

I have no sway bar in front. I feel it gives more flexibility, while having the softer bar installed in the rear prevents torque twist and give stability when climbing.

New stuff from last week. I think this is where I stripped out a lower link causing a cascade of new purchases to address the problem.

Thanks!

Heh, lots of tipping! Some of those shots it was on the verge of going over. It takes a lot of getting used to. I can predict pretty well now where I can go and where it will roll. It still surprises me though

The only pic I'm not fond of is the sunset pic, because its too dark and also because its the one place where the truck didnt actually get to on its own. I just saw the sunset on the water so I set the truck out on a big ass rock in front of the water to take the pic.
