yeah thats what i thought and also i'll probably never go through the process of putting anything else on it unless i get something totally whicked for it, but that would probably go on my next build, scale leaf spring truck in the future

More updates, but until I have time to type them all, let me just say this:

because im not knew to the hobby and especially because im a mud bogger not a crawler (dont need high articulation), I can run the stock tranny with dogbones. I would NEVER recomend it to anyone that doesnt want to spend countless hours of trial and error, or to a new guy to the sport. However if a person does deside to keep it really low cost in the area, then keep me in mind and feel free to ask cause I will have most answers as I've been through it and acually just got my own truck to the point where i shouldnt need to adjust anything anymore. But it took a long time for me to get there.

TO ANYONE USEING THIS THREAD FOR THE HEART SOURCE OF THERE HELP, I HAVE ADJUSTED ALOT MORE TO STOP MY DOGBONES FROM LITTERALLY GETTING CHEWED FROM THE TRANNY CUPS. I WILL POST WHEN I HAVE A MINUTE.

Few things have changed


Latest news is, chances are there is a scale chassis in site and this truck being turned into a leaf spring scaler!!! Not sure if this body will be used again or not. Let's see what X-mas gift cards bring for the LHS!
