nbcrawler ..

Your work seems very good .. [X(][X(][X(][X(]

Your body is now lowered ..[sm=thumbup.gif]

As you say, cut tires will give them a better aderant ground ..

You can install the motor 280 .. they are better than the stock motors.

Maybe you could install an antenna on spring ..

On my crawler MIX-CRAWLER, I already lowered the roll cage and remove the windshield.[8D]



These tires are for snow .. without spikes and with spikes ..[8D][8D]

With the 280, there is no cutting of plastic ..

The stock motor, are the 180 .. I think ..

Cobra69 can probably answer this question ..[8D]

The installation of the 4 th gear is a job long enough but not too difficult .. [8D]

The ratio would be 184 / 1 ... with a 34x10 in each differential ..
