The jeepin dougs look great. I was just worried about wear over time being metal to metal.

Aluminum and tin skins look sick as hell..no doubt...but...they absolutely suck on the rocks...they get marred up and then get "sticky". Lexan panels or some other plastic panels will have far better results on the rocks than metal ones. They look cool and look even better with realistic damage but then when they get you stuck where other rigs pass by youll see what Im saying. For guys building bashers and play rigs tin skins are fine...but...if there is any plan at all to compete...dont do it...even some basher guys have ditched the tin skins due to how bad they grab.

Ahhhh yes.... To Craigslist... That's how I got my dingo, honcho, traded my tmaxx for my creeper, an then traded the honcho for my wraith... Now I'm ready to get the wraith gone... No time for it.. creeper build an soon a scx-10 cherokee build..an my wifes 1:1 cherokee build.. by may 5th... Ur creeper looks awesome! You will deff enjoy the honcho, they are very capable! The stock scx-10 can do big things, an the honcho was a full blown comp-able rig.. so many options.. can't wait to see some building on it..

Yep, Craigslist is the shiz at times. The Honcho is still my brothers so parts will be his choice, but we'll work together on modding it. I think first mods will be custom made links, shocks and later will come fabbing up a roll cage.

Never knew there was such a great spot to crawl so close to my house. I can see me spending too much time here now..

Went out again today and managed to get a short vid in action.
Had a traxxas driveline end the session early though, these things are just too weak for my driving style. If K get in a bind I'll usually try everything to get out before picking it up and the drivelines give too easily. Ended up fixing my aluminum 3-racing ones and putting them back in.

Yeah it was a pretty good bind, had the left rear caught under a rock and was rockin it back and forth to get out. Almost had it out but that gave.
I gave em a shot but they're just too weak imo..Throw any power at em and they just twist up, same thing in the Traxxas vechicles.
