If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples,then you and I will still each have one apple.
But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

Pretty neat, Rik! That does look like fun! And to say you built it yourself, too. Chris

Well I worked a bit more on my little buggy

I mounted MIP on both axles and replaced the SDI with Rok lox
A friend of mine cut for me the wave beadlock rings even.



Steering with maxxed out MIP



And the dremel and file works on the clocked "C" and knuckles





here's dome action shots
http://scale11.altervista.org/forum/...540#post238540


Then finally the FXR arrived and I completed the rig.

Here's a styrene battery tray under the hood











Rx is now a little assan 4ch.



And the FXR is the dashboard



Who could be the driver of a rig called X-91?









I have to say this little crawler is funny as hell
NOW i have to paint the frame

Do you like it?
