    Looks awesome, I like the green/white scheme.
    The kits are pretty cool with all the metal parts, the TF2's that I have are pretty sweet also

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    Ok....drove it for the first time today and I can tell you the drive shafts are in fact junk....i knew they were a weak spot but firs time out the metal yoke ( not the plastic piece).fell apart....so now there is a komodo yoke on the rear axle....seems to be holding up....note to self get decent drive shafts for the landy

    Yeah that's what I was thinking .....the punisher shafts are just way to expensive....pretty much double what a set of mip shafts would be

    hahahahahaha........are those shafts really that much better?.......i have a set of junfac shafts on my honcho and other than being sloppy they have been pretty reliable...ken has a set of mip shafts and i can totally see the difference.....the punishers look like an all metal version of the kit shafts....are the punishers worth the money?.....

    I don't see a performance/longevity benefit over them, just looks, MIP's would look doofy under my Mack
