    Alright guys, I finally enough done to make it post worthy.

    Let me start off with thanking Patrick at Locked Up Rc for making this a reality
    Also a special thank you to Cory (Stang Killa SS) at The Scale Shop for designing a custom chassis just for this build, and getting it to me so dang quickly

    Based on the Axial SCX-10 G6, well sort of.

    Parts and Upgrades - All can be purchased from Lockeduprc.com!

    Axial OD/UD gears
    Axial Universal CVD's
    Axial metal transmission gears - complete set
    VP Zero Ackerman High Steer knuckles
    Axial 8* adjustable C's
    Holmes Torque Master 30t motor
    Holmes BRXL mini
    LURC FI Spools front and rear
    LURC OT 2 Straight axle shafts
    LURC 1.9 Adversary 8L wheels with 1.9 Agile rings (my absolute favorite set of wheels ever!)
    LURC Scale hardware everywhere - all done in MC Zinc
    LURC Scale Pro Hubs front and rear
    LURC RTR Servo Winch with LURC winch hook
    Tires - not sure what to get, or just run the Treps.....need suggestions!
    Duratrax 32p, 54t spur gear (because I tend to eat weaker spur gears)
    32p, 10-12t pinion
    Custom front tube bumper with LURC winch line fairlead
    LURC Super Blue 200lb winch line
    RC4WD Rear tube bumper

    __________________________________________________ _______________________-

    Chassis - Custom designed by Cory (Stang Killa SS) of The Scale Shop
    Aluminum Scale Radriator V2 "Ultralite" - super easy to install, very light and looks fantastic!
    *Warning* - once you go custom chassis, you can never go back:) It makes the entire build so much easier.

    __________________________________________________ _______________________

    This is my class 2 entry to this years SW Scale Nationals.

    Brief description, then pics...

    Body is a New Bright 4dr JK with some modifications that include trimmed front fender flares (still need to be painted) and completely removed rear fender flares. Ive decided to run it with the entire roof intact, as I just love its profile. Also, I plan on running the color as is, no painting required..bonus!
    Custom made sliders, made from very thin galvanized steel to save on weight. Decided here not to mount tube sliders to it in order to keep things extra clean. Ultimately, it might be nice to have them as those are a useful point to wrap winch line through in the event of a rollover, but hey, it'll never roll over
    I made the front bumper to be class legal, and as out of the way as possible. I managed to mount the winch line fairlead between the two tubes to keep it out of the way.
    The body is held in place with super strong magnets up front, and for now at least, two body posts in the rear to help align the body, and gives me the option of using a body clip should I feel the need for more holding power. I do plan on using two super strong magnets to hold the rear down as well.

    So far, during my initial living room testing, the suspension and steering geometry seem to be very good. There is zero bump steer, good but not ridicoulous articulation, and I was able to mount the steering link and drag link on top of the arms, thanks to the custom chassis.
