Default Redcat pics..trucks and buggies

Lets make a folder for all redcats. I would like to see all the modded ones. Different bodies, parts and such.

Nice body, like the lights, looks real scale, just need to change the rims (chrome w/spinners) and you would have a winner. lol

Again...WOW!...thats quite the elaborate setup you got going on there (thanks for the extra pics btw)

a little bit of both the light in the rear were there shing on the sub woofers but i put the blue leds in headlight and bumper and cooling fan was me i figured i would try that to see how it works before i go cutting more holes in the body for air to flow through dont know yet for sure how well it will work keeping cool cause its only been about 30 degrees here in montana so i keep my fingers crossed for a hot day

hey guys thought i would share some pix with ya'll.... futaba radio system installed, shocks rebuilt, and refilled with team associated oil and put some shock spacers on the rear shocks for ride height, my MONSTERCLONE "project" that wasnt ever functional anyway, but it was still cool. a tuned exhaust is on the way along with a venom smart temp failsafe. enjoy guys

buy some screws from a hardware store. make sure that they are similar to the stock ones.
you can either buy four screws for each side (front rear, make sure that each screw is as long as the stock ballhead screw so you 'll have enough clearance) or buy four big ones for each pair of shocks. you can pass a big screw al the way through the shock tower and use a couple of nuts on the other end. the shocks I used are these:
