    looking awesome. I like the action shot of the truck over the crush cars.
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    iv got good news and bad news.
    good news. i just ordered the paint i need to paint the lexan body.
    the bad news, idk if ill get it painted for another 5 weeks or so. im going on vacation in a few weeks and idk if it'll get here soon enough for me to get it painted before i leave.

    more good news! keep your eye's pealed for another build thread in the buggy section. i jumped on a deal that was to good to pass up. that's all im saying, you're just going to have to wait to find out what it is.

    been neglecting this a bit. iv put a little work in. im now putting in more work so i figured it was time for an update.
    because i run lipo batteries i added a novak start stop to avoid running the packs down to low. mounted it right next to the receiver and mounted the LED light on the back of the chassis so it's visible under the rear bumper.


    and im currently in the process of fabing up new shock mounts to give the truck a little bit of a lift. im going to switch to axle mounted serveo's and wanted more clearance. so i made a template today out of fiberglass. ill give that to my dad and he'll make some out of aluminum for me.





    once i have the aluminum mounts ill start work on fabing up an axle mount for the servos.
