Be interesting to see what a master tinkerer does with something that supposedly "fully upraded" already.

Another small update,
Added some electronics, weathered some SSD wheels, and some new tires.





I like the look the new wheels and tires add.



The body and wheels continues to rust. When I want it to stop I just need to shoot a little clear on it.





Still need to add the rest of the electronics and program everything. Not my favorite task, so I always procrastinate this step.

What happen with this build Ernie? You ever get it powered up? Was really enjoying watching it come together.

I put the Hammer body back on it and it went to Arizona.

Can't believe I just now found this thread!
Ernie - does the front end mod help the steering angle?

Been thinking about another TH to make a ultra4 trail rig out of.

It did improve the steering and the handling of the Hammer. It would be a fun mod for you to try! Go for it!
