Nice job man. I am thinking about using one of those t-cases myself.

got some more goodies in and got a little work done. grille is giving me trouble. the hood on this body seems to be a little to wide to make it look the same. im going to try solid rod and see if a tighter bend will help.

yeah 1.9 for this build off. was going to use the 1.9 rok lox, but may have to use the new rc4wd two face to fill up the larger body. after i give it to my dad, it will have 2.2 rok lox and rc4wd predator wheels. aka walker evans

got the hydraulic ram done, links sleeved, some more styrene done, gave the diff covers the proper treatment, painted the coils and added one super soft spring to the rears and delrin sliders on the shocks, and started the aluminum sides.

well guys as i kind of feared this just wont work with the 1.9s too big but thats what works best for this rig. i posted in the build off thread to have this removed from the competition and replaced with my clone xj build. but here are the updates anyways. still have to finish interior, machine wider hexes, and paint the links. i gave it to him on his birthday and he flipped out. stared at it for like two hours and kept saying it was over the top.

I'll get you the finished pics this week. Kind of forgot about this site for awhile. Glad to see it seems to be back right again.

Alright I got some pics while I was at his house today. Since last time I have built the battery tray and hinged the hood for access. And it's pretty much finished except for some tuning on the rear link placement and weighting the front wheels.
