Default TH FoFF

Castle SV3
Castle 4600kv motor
Hitec 7954 water proofed
Blue monkey rear links
Aluminum wheel hexes
Modified Junfac rear drive shaft (Hurry up MiP)
Custom steering setup
Hitec shift servo with custom linkage
Metal geared trans
Ceramic bearings in the axles
500k diff oil up front (didn't like how the locker affected high speed handling)
Panther paddles rear sandpaws up front on axial beads locks glued and beadlock to keep them on the rims, taped the insides to stop ballooning
Upsized the wheel hex pins
Cut the spare tire and cage off the rear, the aluminum panels are just to give it some rigidity
Replaced just about every screw on it (stock hardware strips easy)
Losi silvers springs rear, green up front, kept the stock shocks they don't leak and seem to work fine
MERV long travel rockers

Still need to do something with the front axles and build some body panels.

With stock gearing 28t pinion it was faster than my brushless rustler and slash 4x4. It could backflip from a stand still. I've got a 19t pinion now for trail running and it's a lot more controllable. If you believe the traxxas numbers my rustler was geared for 60mph and the TH was beating it.

Sounds great just gotta play the waiting game and see if my wife gets the not so subtle hint for father's day. I printed out a 4 page list with pics Part # and price. For her to surprise me with. That combo was at the top.

It's working out nice. The front steering rack is still a problem I coated both halves in dry graphite lubricant and filled in the voids to keep the sand out. Got the derwood one on order so hopefully that's cures that problem.

I don't like the panther paddles in the rear they keep pulling out of the bead and the paddles are so soft there getting cut up fast. Going to order some more sand paws.
