Glad to see the old girl on the trail again..
So was she passed on to a new owner?

......Also, I am not the owner. NvGhostRider has honored me with the first video. He is also candidly driving the beauty too.

Was having some motor glitches and hard starts in the vid. After shortening the dead band I noticed it was still there. Turns out the RX antennae got mixed in with the ESC and servo harnesses. Much better now. Thanks Scott for shooting so I could drive.

Dang, I miss that truck... And it was absolutely made for AR60s! Glad someone is still enjoying it.

The ultimate combo for that truck would be center pumpkin AR60s front and rear.
The offset pumpkins of the AR60s caused issues I didn't think of until it was too late.
The front lower links were a NIGHTMARE. It took me some time to come up with something that didn't hit the driveshaft or cause crazy suspension issues.
I had it all set up for a 4-link in the rear, until I tried to put the driveshaft in. Ended up going to 3-link...
But I thought the truck worked well with the 3-link front and rear and I REALLY wanted to put a servo in the back for 4ws CMS style.
Thank you for the video..

I'm really loving the hell out of it. Aside from some taller/firmer foams and some aluminum upgrades there is little else to do other than to drive it.

This got me thinking about that truck.
