Default Getting back into RC - My TRX-4 Build

Hey y'all. Been a while since I've done anything RC related. I moved across the country, and life got a bit in the way. I'm finally having a chance to relax some and decided to put together a TRX-4 Sport based cheater rig.

Parts for the build (not all pictured)
- Sport axles and Transmission
- Deadloc Frame
- 45/10 gearing
- Holmes 13T Magnum
- Holmes BRXL
- Hitec 7955
- CI 1.0" 2.2 wheels
- 4.75" hyraxes
- CI foams
- .225 SLW hubs
- Proline 4Runner
- STRC brass portal boxes, front and rear
- 4s 1300mah turnigy graphene

Looks good! Do you happen to have a link to the Deadloc frame?

Thanks! I don't have a p/n or link. It's not on their website or on FB. I found it at my LHS and is actually the reason I started this build. Wish I had some more info, this is the only one I can find online... I will say body selection is going to be limited. None of the truck bodies I've tried so far allow the rear to sit anywhere near low enough.

Minor update. Body mounting in progress, all of the brass is on. Should be spraying color and wiring by the end of the week!

That chassis has a lot of up travel clearance for the axles. Almost looks monster truckish, lol. The lower links are completely parallel to the ground.
