Unlike section and FROADER i opted for the Ready to Run model, so mine came with plastic suspension links and tie rod and a pre-painted body.

Got my new body in today :D

Its the Tamiya midnight pumpkin body, need to figure out how i'm going to mount it and i'll need to relocate my battery, and shorten up the wheelbase a bit.

Also have an aluminum driveshaft upfront (broke the u-joint on the rear) and the stock plastic one out back only broken front driveshafts). Also have a skid plate up front now too.

I plan on lowering it abit tomorrow to fix my rollover problems. I think i'm in need of some 1.9s

Yes!! Good thing you didn't get the '56! :p: That's mine!

Lookin' good. Set your budget now. Otherwise you'll spend too much $$$ on these things. :)

I don't believe i understand that word. :p:

But i know what your talking about, i need the frame extension kit to come out so i can move my electronics up, battery onto the rear axle and get an interior, also need to figure out a way to lower this thing big time, i shortened the wheel base.

You can get some SERIOUS travel though without springs (note the almost vertical axle) :D

Drilled the holes for the body mounts and got it mounted. Need to make a holes a bit bigger though because whenever i want to switch bodys i need to pull the mounts out.

I was planning on making this thing a scaler but decided i'll make a scaler outa something else, i'm just going to do a scaler/comp hybrid type... thing.

Nothin much really, trimmed up the new body some to lessen rub and then hit it with some more coats of paint. Also got some MIP shafts on it now. Been trying to save money to dump into either the Lightning or the X.
