here you go, I'm trying to find pics of it when it was new. I'm pretty sure it has been rebuilt atleast a few times. 4s, r2 tranny, fully built WK axles and 21t emaxx motor round out the goodies. I love it! This thing rips! sorry for the crappy cell pics but it is the only camera i had batteries for tonight.

Anyone know how to get a hold of aipohiku? He hasn't been on in a while, I'm curious if he still has the original body panels.those 2 threads were an awesome read!

I'm pretty sure JIA had the B-17 Betty panels when he received it. I seriously doubt he has them anymore though.

i remember jia had that up for sale a few months back. nice to see its getting attention.

i entered mine in my first ttc last year when i was seeing if the scale comp was something i'd be interested in. i just added a lipo cutoff to the super-rooster and wrapped everything in a condom.

while i lacked the wheelspeed for the pull and tanktrap and whatnot, i absolutely slaughtered everybody on the rockcrawling section. AND i was one of the 2 guys who didnt break.

Do you have any pics? Betty has a mmp on 4s (plenty of wheel speed) and really smooth low end. Now if I could find something stronger than xvd's for my wk axles I'd be in good shape

That's cool to hear. A reliable rig is so key to a TTC.
I'd love to see some pics of your rig in action hoopty, I still love that thing.
