Default IFS Scx10

This is a project I've had in mind for awhile, been collecting parts for the last couple months and this is where Im at with it so far. Front end is made up of Tamiya CC01, TL01, HPI, and Axial parts. I know an IFS is not the norm in a hard core trail truck, most cases its an SAS, but I wanted to try something different.

It does look like a great job, there are quite a few people on here who would like to see the build for it or at least an idea of the parts you used, so body off pics please.

This is plain gorgeous. How does the ifs treat you? Does it handle pretty well? I seriously had to go back and look again to make sure it wasn't a 1:1 :thumbsup:
