I have a Ripper7777 steering link system (cant remember if it is over the axle or behind the axle). New in package. Search rccrawler for it.

Its got delrin tubes front and rear + xv6 axles ?? I need to call the police - u stole that !!!

EDIT: Just saw the For Sale POst - tell ya what - looks like your rear axles are light weight PLUS you have the Delrin tubes.

I'll trade you the steering package for the lightweight rear axles if replace with the Delrin tubes .

IDK if the ripper 777 setup will work with the clocked front axle. We'll see when the axles and parts come in. Can't believe I picked everything up for $70 shipped. We'll see when it get's here, almost sounds too good to be true.

Looks like Nacho is getting the axles off of Slant Belly. The new axles are way to light to be under Nacho :lol2:.

Nacho will have a body. It's going to have the fowwling : The chassis you gave me:thumbsup: (ran slant style) and the my old blk bead lock rims(along with some CA glue to help clamping duties), Losi comp tires, my old bully axles and Slant Belly's electronics.

I'm not happy about running them again, either, but all my extra money is going towards the servo.

You can say that again, also the chassis being so short I have to really long links. not sure this chassis will hang with slant belly, we'll find out soon.
