Level as I could make it. By moving shock towers back to stock position. Should help with your drawing.

That'd be great. Closer to where it's going to be will make it easier to understand my vision :-)

Are you planning on pushing it closer to the cab or is that close to where it's going to be?

Project going on hold for some time as the basement including the rc area is getting new flooring and wall insulation so progress is not likely to happen for some time. As everything is getting moved.

Thanks for your patience.

Small update.

Floor pans removed. Allows the Bullhead to sit much lower. But shifting servo keeps it from where I want it to sit. I'm going to try shimming the micro servo see if it will work properly. If that doesn't work I'm removing the 2sp option. Going to single and from there gear back up a bit to get a little more wheel speed back. I'm going to give this thing crazy power just like the real 1:1 Sneaky Pete rig. But since I trail more then anything I'll have to find a nice combo. 3800kv should be close enough or 2400kv range.

Removed rear shock towers, Floorpans and tire testing. Reason for the shock towers being removed is that it lowers the height of both the rear cage and rear of the body.

Basement reno's been pushed back so I'm doing as much work as I can on the RTT

Concept flex on the bench. Just sitting roughly where I want everything. Just because it is fun.

Also Need to go find some piano wires.

Magnets in place. Going to use E6000 to hold them. To body post then once bottom magnets are in place I'll separate the magnets with aluminum foil once payday arrives. And order a single speed conversion for the transmission making it a single speed. As I just drive it in low gear no longer need high gear.

Mounting beadlocks and new tires to see what rig I best like them on. Proline K02's 1.9 on gmade SR02 1.9
Like them better on my RC4WD D90 than the trx4 itself. Going to get a few different opinions. Let me know what you think. Between the Rockbeast XL and the the K02's.

Need more profile shots front and side but I think the KO2’s look cool.

Don't care for the tread pattern on the K02, but the size of them is gonna perform the better IMO. Not a big fan of big tires. 4.75 is the biggest I'd run.

Didn't have enough battery in my cell phone at the time of the picture. But good idea for next time.

I don't care for it neither tread pattern wise. I actually have a set of 2.2 MOABS from back in the day that are smaller than these tires. I won't go much bigger unless I build up my summit 1/10.

Experienmenting with GCM racing parts. For the shocks it's better than before. Now to test run.
Rear cross member for Vaterra Ascender. Maybe a lot more helpful than previously planned which is a good thing.

As basement is being done this weekend I'm working on the dining room table till I get a basement area to work in again.

Cleaning up the transmission and skid plate in preparation for a single speed conversion. And also allows Bullhead body to sit lower.
