Default Crimson Rain (future work in progress)





"Future work in progress," because I won't be able to weld/braze it together for at least two months.

The frame is 5/16 brake line, and the axles will be X-Factors with inflated LSTs (hopefully beadlocks).

No real progress, but I did redesign the subframe. Yellow is old and blue is new. The old one was based on the X-Chassis while the new one is based on a 4-linked F-Toy.



And just some random renders of what I hope it will look like.
