Wow! I am impressed with how it turned out, I mean the stance and the color, sinister is nice. You did an excellent job. It'll be interesting to see which body you choose. Perhaps you could use some thin Alum. sheet to cover the cut outs, and double as a scratch plate.

Thanks for the positive comments and advice guys! got a plan in my head for the body, just have to see how it all shakes out. I have a pro-line hardcorr body ready to go.

Took it for a test drive finally - just a quickie shakedown run in the driveway. Everything worked perfect! Good news is nothing fell off or broke, but it needs a lot of tuning. Bump steer is a concern, and the rear suspension is a little stiff and needs a swaybar, but a good starting spot. I love this part of a build.

vid is coming, loaded on my computer i just have to edit it and get it posted.

As a matter of fact, i do!

Quickie vid, nothing fancy. Runs good, i was barely giving it any throttle, i was terrified of flipping it without the body on yet. no worries, ran great!

I though the music choice was rather witty..

started hacking on the body tonight and finally decided on and ordered some wheels..I have a set of epic beadlocks, but they must be the most frustrating beadlocks to assemble i have ever had the displeasure of owning. I ended up launching one across my backyard in a fit of frustration .... Then, i calmed down, took a deep breath, and went to pick up the pieces.

"That's a negatory on the price of this automobile there GhostRider. You might say I went down to the factory and picked it up. It's cheaper that way"

I used baby powder on my epics to help seat them. I put the screws in halfway and worked the rubber before sinching them down. Ya might try that. Besides....when you throw stuff outa anger you're suppose to throw something heavy or sharp.

Thanks for the tip. I'm so turned off to these rims at this point, i picked up a set of revolvers instead. I'll try the powder though in the meantime and avoid heavy sharp objects jsut in case.

chassis looked smooth and predictable

Can't wait to see you ''open her up'' when you get a body on it.

I liked the fact that it lifted the left front so easily, When you get the body on that little fact will make it look even more life like, Great work.

yeah, it torque twists pretty badly..just needs some tuning! rather have it squat evenly in the back than twist, just have to tweak a bit once i get the body on and get the final weight settled out.

i have to hustle, i just scored a NIB TLT to go with my Xtrail and juggy body and am dying to build another scaler for my new course out back. It's calling to me from the shelf.

Haha I might have been the only one to notice but the lolbeat smiley was in perfect timing with the song

But the chassis looks killer, looks like a fun drive, even on the limit (can't wait to see that bit) and if you look at 1:1 trophy trucks they lift the front wheel in the turns and on the first bit of the straight.

I planned it that way.... lol j/k

waiting for parts...i have switch tires on epics for the moment, they look pretty good. I ordered revolvers too, for either this truck or it's 2wd brother - want to see where they look best. Also, picked up another pro-line light set - i think this puppy should have some lights on it somwehere.

Parts hould be here tomorrow!

coming bro! Got the revolvers in, they look ok....better then the Epics, that's for sure but not great. have some spacers coming for the rear axle - way too wide with the existing 15mm spacers, and way too narrow without. Have pics, just have to get them loaded. Other than that, not much going on - burned out a bit and took some time off (built a TLT in the meantime)

basicially.... .
