That appears to be a different angle from when I took a photo of your RC. I still think you should have traded it for a Segway.

nice looking vehicle. I got mine finished, just need to paint the body and I'll be all set.


Has any had ESC mounting issues? there isn't enough material to get a good mount with my Tekin G-10 Pro+ so I am thinking of making some sort of mount plate to put it on and then mount the plate to the vehicle.

Some things I did were to get rid of the center steering link and go with a turnbuckle and ballcup setup. By going with this, I was able to get alot more steering throw than stock. I'll see how it holds up but it appears to fit well.

For the rear dogbones to get more droop, I put an oring in each of the axles to slightly push the dogbones into the outdrives more than how they are stock. This allows for more rear droop. just make SURE that you have no binding though the full motion of the shock.

By the way, are we supposed to get black shock bladders or the clear kind as the black ones don't fit that well.

Hi

I would suggest getting the pro-shock set.

:-D

I have the pro shock set which comes with the clear bladders for the rear and ordered what parts were needed to make a pro set for the front. I really like the shocks, I just wish an option was available to have them threaded. This would really be a plus.

Hope to do some painting today and get this body finished. Tomorrow, some driving.
