Nice looking rig. Too bad it needs the arms beefed up. I'm sure you'll get that taken care of quickly. I love the color. Don't mess with it. LEDs would be a welcomed addition to the head, rally and tail lights. You could even do the reverse lights on this one and make it totally street legal with turn signals to boot.

Thanks guys....

Don..I have the LED kits to install on it but, this thing already eats AAA's like crazy.
I haven't been able to find any rechargeables locally with a mah over 900.
What arms need to be beefed up???

Home Depot carries Energizer 2450mAh AAs, you should consider switching over. AAA batteries traditionally don't hold much of a charge. AAs last a lot longer. Or, consider the Ultra batts I got from CompUSA/TigerDirect.

If you are stuck with AAA due to design limitations, there are some 1200mAh AAA batts being sold on eBay.

The arms I was discussing were your shocks... they look like stock spring ones.
