The brown cheby had a major upheaval yesterday morning.
Between my computer totally crashing..while trying to download the sounds on the usb thingy. Ugh, I still need to down load and install a few more programs to fully up and running. Then hopefully an update.

Thank you. It's getting a new look for sure.. Something a bit more forgiving for the terrain I drive on.
I received the Dick C's tires too. I wasn't to happy with them as my trucks are heavy and the side walls are supper soft. They really squish out and look flat. Not sure what I will use them on now. I may try and get some foams out of some 1.9's and see if that helps them.
My wheels are 1.55 not 1.7's I found out too.

Well as soon as i get a few more things installed on new computer, i'll be sure to update ..more soon.

Yeah the fun countrys are stupidly soft. I have been thinking of stiffer foams also but not tried yet any.

My truck will be heavy also so someting needs to be done to the inserts or I may try shoe gooing the sidewalls from the inside to try to stiffen them a bit .

Let me know if the shoe goo works, that's actually a really good idea.

Great if I was helpful.

Thanks guys.
I'm using a stock 4 channel RX and TX that comes with with the RTR TF2.
This sound system is really good for the money.
I was worried about it not being in time with the Movements, but it's actually very responsive. They have a ton of vehicles to chose from and their free to pick what set up you want. you can also trick and expo the the functions out too. Just use the provided USB thingy download, and plug in the module.
It comes with two sounds already installed as far as I can tell.
Hope to have everything buttoned up by this coming weekend and get some Vid of the beast in action.
