Default Twisted - My old TLT

Well this was my first TLT, I bought it in 04, so it's seen plenty of miles, it some how ended up going from trail rig to comp rig last season even though I have newer TLT's. I had planned on replacing it with an Axial, but than I waited on the ARTR kit and now I'm waiting to see the losi.

So I decided I'd rebuild the TLT to keep it going until I get a new comp rig.

I went with a TVP Bodiless design, this is the second proto-type and has done well, I need to make a few changes but nothing critical, I'llwait until I can test it at our next comp before I make any changes.

At the last comp my lipos hadn't arrived in time, so I had to use a EVX and 2 mini-t packs. I faired well but the lack of brakes and the constant glitches from the old batt packs were killing me.

Anyways my lipos came in the day after the comps so I got it all wired up and started testing in the backyard.

Stats:

R-97 Assault Buggy Chassis

MGT Shocks

Custom Beadlocks

Mashers M3

3s lipo

I love the old TLTs. I have one myself. Nice looking build you have there, very creative in using a chassis and building a roofline with it.
