Default Ugly Betty. First crawler

Not sure if this is where I should put this, but:


I started with the obvious stock Axial, and begin to find little things to help it. Lot of info found on the web, and subtle tweeks to my personal preference.



I mirrored the trans first thing. that helped greatly in torque twist. the next day, my X-trail chassis would arrive, so I tossed everything on. My ultimate goal is to have a trail rig without giving up too much for capability.



Not entirely pleased with layout, i moved some things around..







Not quite at full extension, sitting on a coke can is no issues with the x-trail, and without nasty axle "steer"


in it's current state,.........for now. More light, and a Rubicon body are on the way.
