Looks pretty good. I Like the color, it contrasts well with the aluminum.

That's pretty sweet. I couldn't own something like that. It'd be a wasteful shelf queen.

well i worked on getting the pede tranny in tonite . i want to lay it down but it was just no way to do it . making the mounts was not hard. I used 1 1/2" alum. angle . I used the holes in the frame that was used for the stock tranny. it was still a very tight fit had to remove the ears on the tranny and set it abit to the front but it worked. now it look as if the frame was made for a pede tranny. i will try and get some more pics of it up soon .

i got the sliders done and the steering links made . i narrowed the wheels and put some of Unimoger's Rock Rings on .i got the batteries mounted . i put 2 on each side in the middle of the frame alittle bit closer to the front stacked on each other and 2 across the front axle end to end behind the servo. the super rooster looked out of place in there it was to big . so i got a novak XRS on the way . anyway a new pic for everyone .
