Default TXT Build up

I think that my TXT is almost done. I think that maybe refining a few things and minor performance enhancements should do the trick.

I would like to thank JasoninAgusta for the GD-600.
Many Many thanks to AZVader for the links and the *****en servo mounts. This guy does grade A work.
Sean in Vegas for giving me ideas on how to stay a step ahead of him.
The many posts offered on this site.
The Crawler store for some of the parts and easy instructions on the TQ3

I picked up the body at the hobby shop yeaterday and painted it last night. I like crawler bodies. Less to paint and more fun to cut up.

This facet of RC is so much fun. Can't wait for my clod to show up.

Let me know what you think.

Very Nice. I really like the look of that tire. I have a set of TXT 40's and I'd like to mount up some Moabs on them. Is that the wheel you are using and if so did you narrow them?

Looks good Franky. I like the way you left the bed area of the body unpainted. The question is wheres the vid of it in action.

Yes it is and I narrowed them about 1/2 inch. Not much but it helps.

I really like the clear bed and the cutout RCCrawlers logo is a nice touch.

Default Nice !!!!

Very nice rig Ken. I dig where the battery is mounted, waaaaaaay out front. Let's see some w/o the body. Which is way cool, I'm a sucker for a Shelby stripe.

I'm glad you liked the mounts, I hope to see it in person some day.
