Looks good so far. Are you going for a 60/40 weight split? I only ask because of the way the chassis is cut. Cant wait to see more pics of the truck.

You could call it "skywalker" since it's a brainchild of Vader...

Default We get by with a little help from our friends

First off, I want to thank Eric for entrusting me to build up his chassis. This is my first try using a Pede trans, they're a tight fit. I'd also like to say thanks for all the comments, the ESC tray works nicley where the stock resistor went.

It's up to you now Eric, you must complete this crawler as your final jedi test.

that should be really stable, with not much torque twist, because of how much the rear shocks are stood up. thats how my next rig will be. rear shocks stiffer than the front. should work decently.

sounds to me like one of your shock shafts is bent. you should check em out. but the stock maxx shocks are a good idea anywho. i have em on mine and with no oil they work supernice. very smooth and linear feeling.

no its not bent idk i think the shocks i have on it are stampede shocks and i just want max shocks cuase the pede shocks make the truck sag and sit low and stay low once it has been pushed down...
