Yeah it really was, and it is always fun with this truck..
The only issue is that I'm too much of a photo and video-guy, so I use a lot of time to get to drive a little run.
At least yesterday I first had some pre-runs with two-handed driving, but when I'm filming with one and driving with the other, then I need to pick some easier lines because of the accuracy by thumb-steering, but hey.. I'm still learning!

I dont really know..
Some will say that they make the car vorse regarding the handling..
But I bought them for the looks and feel, I dont really think that much of how it effects the cars handling as long as it dont ruin it totally..
Lets just say, it's my cup of tea

Lookin good there sickpuppy!

I had a set of metal axles on my scx10 ii, didnt seem to hurt performance any. Kept it planted pretty good. Only real issue, n wasnt much of one, was on some rocks. Theyd catch a lil, but nothin i wasnt able to power over. I recently got a set of SSD diamond pro axles n love them! Nylon chunk with aluminum tubes, just enuf weight to plant it n the nylon slides like butter

So I had to order some screws to finish up the axles.
Yesterday they arrived and now they're done!

Pretty happy how they came out!


And the rear

Some time ago I also ordered the new Hyrax-tires together with dual stage foams and some beadlocks.
When all of it arrived and I was stoked to mount it all up I found out that the rims didn't fit around the portals.. :(
So I had to order some other rims, and landed on a set of Gmade 1.9's.
And WOW!! Just WOW!!!
I've mounted a fair bit of tires to different types of beadlocks the last years, but this wheels I think I could've mounted blindfolded.
I hate how they look, but MAN are they easy to mount!!
So I'm hoping Gmade is coming with some other designs in near future, coz' then I know for sure what beadlocks I'm going to purchase..

Thanks man, those were the ones I could find that looked ok-ish at least..
I guess they'll grow on me, and since they were so awesome to mount I guess I'll love them eventually..

I totally agree with you, my axle housings doesnt feel like they hold me back in any way.
But I am actually thinking of coating the bottom of these axles with some nylon or something, just for the freakin' fun of it..

Do you know of anything that would do the job?

Ok.. first of all.. R.I.P Defender v2.0
Today was a very fun but painfull day..
I was trying to drive safe to preserve the v2.0 as long as possible..
Well, I got my first scratch and from that point it was all in..
At least I got some pictures from the driving before it went south, more about that later..

BTW, this sport is not mine, it's a friend of mine visiting from my hometown.
