Default No Name comp buggy pic added

Well I've been sitting on some 3/16" Cromoly tubing for a while and today the latest RCKJEEP creation was started. I've got some pics taken but don't have a way to upload them here so you'll have to wait. It's a small buggy with function in mind. It'll be filled with a 45t lathe motor attached to a stealth tranny. I'll use some front associated truck shocks most likely and will sit low. A WB is yet decided but probably 12.5 inches. Once it's done We can figure out a name for it. What was the other dogs name from the Warner Bors. cartoon. There was Ralph and ? Anyway I'll try and get some pics up soon. Now I have to decide which rig to dismantel for parts the Rockstar chassis or the truggy? Hmmmmm

I'll try and upload the pics today. It's not much currently but I'll let you guys be the judge.

EDIT: Of course I can't find my USB cable to upload the pics. Man moving is frusterating. I did how ever order another 6' of tube to finish it off. Hopefully it'll get here before the weekend so I can finish the chassis.

So I may trade my clod roller for some RC4WD narrowed beadlocks which I think would be sweet on this buggy build. Here's a pic of them

here's a mock up of the WB and would be ride height. The front end is definitely getting cut off.

so here are the stats I'm shooting for.

Cro-Moly tube chassis
Stealth tranny
TLT axles spider gear locked and shaved(ooohhhh shaved)
Inet Knuckles up front (when they are available)
Masher 2k's on narrowed HPI's or narrowed & dyed Pedes with Rock Rings
12.75" wheelbase
2.25" of GC
Driveshafts are still up in the air depending on how I adapt them to the stealth tranny.
Shocks will be Associated 3.5" truck fronts most likely
