Just in case you missed it, I had my favorite truck pimped out by a member in RCC. It still needs a few details but here is how is looking lately:

that is awesome! I love the foglights as headlights (if Im not mistaken..)...should put a small set up under the front wheel wells..
I love that interior, so did you have to install a second battery/alternator for all those electronics in the interior? :)

With 2 more 1.9 rigs on the works, I decided to throw some 2.2's on the Taco so I can run it on Class 3. I went with Flatirons on Proline wheels to keep the low profile looks and keep the CG as low as possible. I also mede some changes in the suspension by changing springs. I was looking to minimize the droop as it was sagging too much. When sidehilling, the weight was shifting abruptly(due to the droop) and flipping the truck to easy. I also added a passanger and a pull pal(thanks Shon). When you drive like I do, you need all the points you can get in the scale department. Still need to test the new set up but I think it will work better. Here are some shots:

Got some aluminum wheels and hubs for the Taco. Last thing I want to do is upgrade the motor. Still running an Integy 55T.

What wheels are those? They seriously bling out the truck - in good way.

The Tacoma is working a lot better with the stiffer springs, here is a little vid I shot yesterday at Cibolo:

Oh noes' you rolled it. It does maintain it's composure really well, though. I was hoping to get out to the creek this weekend, but my rig is in too many parts right now. Maybe we can set up a gig next weekend? Derek? Shown? Daniel?

You said that you had stiffened up the suspension a bit. What springs are you running now?

I am running Traxxas reds (stock that come with bigbores) in the front and Axial greens(medium) in the rear. I will try the Traxxas reds all round next time, seems like it could be a little stiffer in the rear. Just say when and we'll get together!

Thanks for the info. On my rig I'm running Losi whites on the front and Losi grays on the rear. Much lighter load than what you're carrying (no tube on mine). Works pretty well, but I'm moving up to Losi yellows up front (slightly heavier). Nice to hear what other people are running. I tried running those Traxxas reds, but they were much too heavy for my needs.

To me, the dialing in of the suspension is the most fun part of this hobby. Still building my spring collection. I have a couple more combinations to try.
