Really nice, thinking-out-of-the-box rig!

With the servo turned sideways, you would need to use some longer shocks and jack the rig up, otherwise the front axle would bottom out the servo on the chassis rails.

I started a CC01 chassis proj a couple weeks ago. I had an f150 body from a Nikko that fit TLTs and wanted closed-out fender wells.
I ended up cutting the CC01 in half right down the middle and adding in 0.75" in the middle. I used some X-trail rails I had and bent them to lay inside the CC01 formed rails.

Keep going -watching to see where this goes

Default Sparky goes to the seashore

Took the CC01 on vacation to the northern California coast, here's some video at the beach:

Default Steering Servo Re-Relocation

Didn't like the way the steering servo hung down in front so fired up the Dremel:

Well, since you mention it, I got a set of RC4WD Rok Lox yesterday, and they're BIG! It does climb a lot better, at least on the brick pile in my yard. It's starting to look like a monster truck! I took the spare off the back, it looked tiny compared the RokLox!

Awesome mod! I'd like to do this mod on mine, what did use to glue the ends back on? By your video's, they look pretty strong.
