Thanks Indy
I might order some black to do the upper wires I am not sure yet or I might use up some of the red/pink I have. Hell I might even go with me red white and blue wrap. To soon to tell. Itís been a great build so far and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting one. Hey let me know about the axles also.

Wiring looks good! Nice and tidy!

Wiring has always been my worst nightmare. I've been struggling with the wiring in my PRO. It is a bit more difficult with the battery tray behind the trans. I too thought about using the rear fuel cell, but haven't made it work yet.

It could be worse...could be trying to do a clean/hidden wiring job inside a PC case.

Thanks B-Mow

I was getting fussed with adding extensions to the wires to reach the rear box. Overall I am pleased with what I came up with

Did you consider having them custom-made? There are plenty of people doing custom...could have them made in black, or almost any other color.

Yes I did consider that. I have a local guy that will make me anything I need only bad thing is I have to wait till he has a free day to go over what I want. He works with several police departments fire departments and emergency services with their vehicles. Me decals arenít that important for me to take time away from his work.
When I viewed the decals online they looked black but they still work

I like the red link look it gives something different other than the silver look

Yesterday was the first day out for me VS4 Pro. Went out to a local state park for some trails. Itís an awesome place to go to. These are just a sample of whatís there. It doesnít get any more beautiful than this to me.



The truck was great. I couldnít believe how well it handled. Very smooth and predictable. If you ever thinking about getting the VS4 Pro do yourself the favor and get it you wonít be disappointed.

Nice pics! Glad to hear the PRO is a dream to drive!

Those pics of your local state park are beautiful and remind me of a spot I go to in Northeast Ohio. It's always a great place to go run tiny trucks and clear the mind!

The truck was very smooth. The HH CrawlMaster 20T was awesome. Just enough wheel speed for me liking. Hell it was even ran on 2s with a full size hardcase. I feel for me the extra weight of the battery really balanced out the truck. Almost reminded me of me AE T6. The state park we were at is about 1/2 hour over the Ohio line in western Pa. If you ever make it out that way let me know can give you directions and possibly do some running

Took the VS4 for spin. Was a very good time. Just a little chilly some snow and ice but the truck handled it like a Pro.
Steep climb with snow in the tires no problem

Taking on some rocky terrain

Looks like a great day out on the rocks!

Like the way it looks with that paint and wheel/tire setup.

Matte finish roof and hood detail nicely done.

Only needs somethin' on the grille on the blank space to be perfect!

Or is there a little Vanquish "V" in the center?

Thanks for the comments buddy

It was a good day just a bit chilly it was about 31* out. It got cool really fast this year up north here. I am really pleased with how the body came out. Trimming the film was very easy and made for a good looking paint job. I did some black inside on the roof and hood and trim the film on the outside and sprayed with black and flat clear. There is a small V on the grill. I have thought about painting it but not sure if me hand is steady enough. You might have talked me into trying it though

Default Carpetfuzz's VS4-10 PRO

Getting the Pro ready for tomorrowís trip to Spirit Hobby. Should be a fun time. Which brings me to this little update. I have LEDS in the rear buckets not really didnít like how the shined through the clear lean. The stickers would work but wasnít the look I wanted. I came up with the idea of using some glass stain.

Hereís what we got before the glass stain. I just needs something to make it pop.


Here we have the glass stain on and ring back in place. I think it looks really good plus it still lets the light through.


All I did was puddle up the glass stain and let it set up for a couple minutes and then put the outside ring on and screwed it back into the buckets



Kind of hard to tell but it now has red tail light without the lights on

Made the trip north to Spirit Hobby in Pa. Was a great day of some indoor trails. The layout doesnít look very difficult at first but itís actually really tricky. Thankfully the VS4 was up to the challenges. Canít say enough good things about this truck. Itís the best crawler I have driven. The setup thatís in is working perfectly for me. Hereís some of the good stuff


The no vented tires doing their thing
