Lookin' good!

That body is like camera flashes at a sports event or concert. Walk past it and it just sparkles.

Can't wait to see it in action this coming weekend.

Thanks. I tried to show more of how one of these (in general, not specific to the K3) is put together. I know that when I was looking to do it, I didn't see anything close to this level of "dumbeddown-ness". Hopefully it helps other "newb's". After all, not everyone was born knowing how to do it. It didn't turn out to be that hard, but I hoped I could add something.

In order to avoid cutting down the body to much, or raising it to stupid levels off the frame, I had to restrict the shock travel. Each shaft has 15mm of fuel tubing on it. I still get a little over 4 inches under the wheel, and a little more when the tubing is compressed. So each shock has about 5mm of stroke.
So this might be more of a scale truck than initially planned.

im well into my K2 build as well now, its a beautiful chassis and with the msd servo plates i got, is starting to look good. Im kinda going semi scale with carson wheels and tyres from my old nitro truck (Carson is a German make many of you guys wont have heard of. The MadRat is identical chassis to your XTM blade). Im using 3mm threaded bar through 2 sizes of brass tubing. My bottom links to the same length as in Kaetwos build doc each weigh 14grams (is that too heavy for links?)I had to cut down the Range rover bodyshell i was ggonna use as the rear wheel arches were way out of linf, so i flat bedded it and now there are no rear arches to worry about, i will try and get some pics for you all to see, but not having a computer or digi cam ill have to beg and borrow

the back left suspenison suffers from torque twist, due to the torque from the motor twisting the axles, so they use a stiffer spring in the back left to keep the chassis from twisting!

Yep, heavier spring in the left rear, along with some 50wt oil. 30wt in the other 3.
Without the fuel tubing on the shocks, I was getting 6 inches of clearance under the wheel before any other lifted.
I'm *still* waiting for some decent weather so I can get a couple pics of it outside. Clouds aren't helping.
So far I've seen pretty much how slow it goes. I'm thinking of dropping an Orion Core Stock in it and see how fast it'll go.
