Default A Little Side Project

This rig started it's life as an s25 powerd savy. when i picked it up at a garage sale for $20 it was in real bad shape, rims and tires were junk, the ol s25 was blown, chassis was bent, all sevos were stripped, rear diff was stripped, front dogbones were missing, rear center dogbone was twisted, no pipe.

so i bought it anyway

i added 1/2 offset proline dish wheels, crimefighter tires, silverrado body, hpi lcg tvp kit, hpi polished tuned pipe, 17mm hubs, 3 speed tranny, x ss all metal diffs, bell crank sevo saver, robinson steel spur and clutch bell, savage xl sf5 sevo and sf2, xl heavy duty dogbones and axles, still in need of a motor, the one in truck is only for mockup along with pipe, motor has a cracked block, and body still needs to be lowered. btw this has gotton very stable you really have to try hard to flip it.

Feel free to leave any comments or sugestions.

Jeff.
