...and how much is it valued at? That's NICE!

I like the out of the box thinking, no folds, yet nothing's flat.

$125+ like that in the pics with it polished and drilled, bent and braces and hardware..

He will be offering the same but not bent or polished for $75

It has a very space buggy look, but its the only one like it that I like...

So you are not looking to make a few one off parts for members but new ideas on projects to keep you busy ?

I'd like a cross brace slash fourlink mount for the top of my Axial rear axle.
I cut the 2 post off to make it look more scale and now want a top cross member so to mount things to as in a fourlink or tow hook and things of the sort.

How about a skid plate like alot of people are making so the lower links can mount inboard BUT also extend forward more to help protect the motor ?

Plastic of course.

I'll make one-off parts, but understand they won't be cheaper than off-the-shelf! And if there's an off-the-shelf available, I won't want to do a copy act.

I have the tools to make about anything, so why do what anybody else is doing...RC really suffers from "It's Been DONE Syndrome".

Are you talking about a skidplate like this?

Sort of... just longer in the front...

How about planetary gears at the ends of the front knuckles and rear lockout, not like that of the portal axles but a centered input/output deal. Anyone make something like this ? No trans would be needed...
