Nice! Lots better than my first Maxx crawler, thats for sure.

What I would tweak if its going to be a serious crawler...

1. Lower it an inch or two.

2. Run one motor. No need for that much weight that high up. It'll kill you when you climb. I ended up cutting half my motor mount off and laying the transmission on its side to get the motor as low as possible.

3. Upgrade to Revo shafts on your axles. You'll break those TMaxx shafts quick, trust me.

It's not a Pro-line...it's an HPI.
