Oh the lid looks like it went through a war. Sending the motor out tomorrow. Here sooner or later looking at getting a set of VP zero ackermann, either GTR shocks or another set or long Sportwerks and using Lsoi whites all the way around. Thinking of getting another bug body and drill the holes where I have the body mounted now. This way I don't have a bunch of holes in my rig.

I'd like to, but chances are good I'm just gonna beat the crap out of it! I do plan on adding alot of lights to her for those late night trail runs .

Super, your rigs are lookin' good (as always) . Anything new with the kid's rig?

I'm gonna try the TSL's on my Wreck, might need some taller shocks though.

Thanks for the kudos, Chuckinator .

I don't believe I've ever seen her run, so you get the first piece of cake and two scoops of ice cream .

I finally got the chance to drive the Dingo at Redgranite for a few hours before our first comp. It's basically stock with some Rox Loxs and an Axial gear cover added. I had the most fun driving it up and over some random rocky sand piles. It just seemed at home in more of a desert setting .

I like the truss, too.
I realize this might be a mid-mockup pic, but with the links as straight as they look to be, do you run a panhard bar that I'm not seeing, or do you just let the axle sway?

No panhard rod, the triangulation and tight fit of the links seem to do the job. Lots of nice, controlled articulation too. The upper rod ends didn't fit in the inner notches of the truss, the Revo ball ends were too wide but it still seems to work well.
