Thanks TC, there's a few things I need to change like the front upper link mount (needs to be higher so links sit flat), drill a few more upper shock mount holes, add a delrin chassis skid, streamline the chassis plates, etc. It'll work for next weekend though.

Don't worry ILRCRC the E-maxx stickers are gone, Traxxas is still there though it's got there shafts and tranny.

Thanks yoda316.

I knew I was forgetting something, the mandatory flex shot. I'll try to get some flex shots up.

Very nice looking rig. You guys amaze me with some of your scale jobs. The body is really nice too, but that black beater body makes it look like it's ready to whoop some ***!
