    Added some more scale goodness. I also had a problem with one of my head lights. Luckily the pack I bought came with four of them. I have it wired up and am testing it out before reinstalling.

    Got my sliders made and mounted up.





    Also got my new motor in. It's a Losi MRC brushed motor. I am using a MMP to run it. A little overkill, but I have it in in hopes of one day finding a descent brushless motor that will fit.





    Here's is the maiden voyage. Still need to tweak the shocks, but it looks promising. I was surprised at how well it turns, especially in concrete.

    Already broke two of the Integy driveshafts just driving in the basement. Luckily, I finally found two sets of MIP ones. In the mean time I made a small tapered mount that gives me a better angle for the shaft.





    I am also lowering the ride height with spacers in the shocks. That will make it look more scale, lowers my COG and give me better angles on all the shafts.

    One set of MIP driveshafts came today. They really look so much better than the Integy ones. Much more scale looking. Besides they are a lot beefier than the other ones.







    Was able to modify the Integy ones to replace the temporary short shaft between the Trans and carrier bearing.

    Spent a few hours today tweaking the rear links. Wanted to move the middle axle back a bit, which required all sorts of tweaking.

    Here are some shots of it in the snow.

    The only recommendation I can give for the Integy driveshafts is don't waste your money. Just broke my third one driving in the snow. Hope that other set of MIP shafts arrive soon!
