Ok, ill use the dremel. Nice 1/1. I wish ours was a rubicon. Why didn't u paint urs like the real one? Looks pretty awesome with the racks and scale stuff. Hey, what is that yellow sticker on the side of the 1/1? There is a club up here that you put one on your jeep. It looks just like it. And i keep telling my dad that we need a winch on the real jeep to match the rc body. He just says to cut off the one on the body, but that wouldn't be as fun.

Its hard to match the khaki color, so I went red with retro flare.

This build is pretty similar to what I will be doing this weekend. So I will be following it closely.

Sorry for the late reply. I put the reciever in two balloons and zip tied the neck off with 2 zip ties. Then i put liquid electrical tape on the cracks and wire entry on the servo, then just some grease on the output thing. ESC is waterproof, put electrical tape on all the connections, like battery, esc, and motor connections. Then just hope nothing goes wrong.

Here is a video i took a while ago showing that it really is waterproofed.

I see you appear to be using the Traxxas links. I have basically an identical vehicle with the tires, wheels(narrowed), body and chassis. I was having issues with flex, and finally thought to change the links. I switched to some SW2 Delrin links from one of the suppliers here and what a difference! I noticed the Traxxas links were very restrictive where the joint is. World of difference! The new ones can flex at greater angle with no resistance. I can see in some of your flex shots that your truck suffers from what mine did. It will likely be the best $30 you spend at this point. Judging from the pictures where you run, it would make it alot more fun too. I bet your tires come close to the springs when turning to. MSD's widener kit helped with that, along with narrowing the wheels.

Take care.

If i changed anything on the suspension, i wouldnt be able to drive this thing for crap. But there is no binding on the traxxas links for me. They arent screwed in all the way, but enough to keep the wb under 12.5". The only thing limiting the suspension is the tlt shocks, they fully compress before there is any binding. Ive been looking at some high clearance links but was planning on making my own.

But i am so used to the way its set up, i can do some pretty crazy stuff with it that i dont even know how its possible considering its using the most cheapo stuff.
