make a bumper or skid for the rear....otherwise that nice motor detail on the body will get messed up. I know, Ive had that body on a ruster and it didn't take like with wheelies to ruin the rear of the body.

Ride hight is very excessively high for a high centre of gravity chassis... U will get better handling and the axles will last longer if u lower it..... My 2cents worth

I have a lot of travel to make it look real and plan on some big jumps.

Cool fair enough... Hummm can't say I've ever seen a baja buggy that high... Longer springs won't help a whole lot with jumps ur best bet is is playing around with oil's, I dare say by the looks those rear springs are way to stiff, so u might run into nose diving problems when launching of the lip of a jump...

Meh who cares right, still looks like fun. Be sure to get some videos up.

hot with finger is not a good measure....as a brushless motor can run 160 degrees without issue....130 is to hot to keep your finger one.
what KV is the motor?

Nice action shots!

Are you running 2s or 3s and what's your gearing? And btw, that thing is SICK!

I am running a 2s with stock gearing an 86t spur and I forget what the pinion is but I know it is the small stock on
and thank you. I am looking for a wheelie bar for it.

That motor should be ok. But I'd get a temp gauge for sure and maybe even think about an aluminum transmission casing as they act as a huge heat sink and make it look cool too.

Thermometer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Non-Contact-...item53f76f7e8c (similar to the one I have)

Tranny casing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Golden-Horiz...item460ae0d38c (I had this on my Rustler and it worked great)
