I like it. I'm running tamiya onroad shocks but I have some duel rate dingo shocks I would like to use. They look better. I want a lil more flex cuz it's very shallow at this point

I went the short shock route, then slighty longer shocks and finally settled on the 3.5" shocks. I've been happy with them.

Body came in today. It's a little small. The axles are a hair to wide but I guess that's what I got to work with.

I have the stock ones. I have to work all weekend so while I'm there I'm going to tig on some shock towers. I think the stock one will be fine.

Nice build so far,Have you give'in any thought to useing the stainless steel clocked axle C's from Jones'in RC,They will take some of the angle out of the front driveline,That's also the weakest part of the tlt axle housing.

I'll look that up when I get home from work. Sitting here with a thumb up the bum in my shop so I put some shock towers on. I'll put a cross member in and cut them down when I know the right length I need for the original tlt shocks.

I got the front rods done. Busy day tinkering with the track behind my house, shooting paintballs at my kids working on this thing and going to work at 6 this morning. Now me and the kids are going to watch john carter.
