Looks good! One thing though. The spacers go under the rockers and you flip them over with the nuts facing down.

Thanks dude. What can I say? I am Polish, blonde haired, dyslexic, and a former Marine. Don't expect perfection the first time around.

I was thinking a stock RS540 brushed motor and twin six-cell 3300nimh battery packs......Just kidding. I am not sure what I am going to put in this truck. I already have 2 MGMs and a Quark 125B in my other trucks and I am happy with them but I'd really like to try something new and different. I still need to acquire:

wheels & tires
steering servo
receiver
body & wing


If the MMM combo is out like they say it is suppose to be by the time (hello...March is just around the corner) I get the above items then fine...I'll buy one. If not...I guess I'll go for another MGM/Neu combo.

Thanks. I really wanted some CVDs...but I also wanted 8mm axles...so I went with the 3.3 drive shafts and RD racing axle kit. We'll see how it holds up.

Dont leave out the fact that you are in West Virginia.


I've always admired your rides. This one is certainly no exception.


Looks like she's gonna be a tight ride.

Those arms, Flex Tek's right? Well as the name Flex is definately inherant with these styled arms.

Are you expererincing any excessive hing pin bending? If so I saw a guy make a plate, used a slightly longer hinge pin and captured the pins. Stopped beding ti pins ever since.

Nice looking setup. What do you think it's gonna weigh fully loaded?

Good point! I'm not a native WV...but who knows maybe it's rubbing off on me?

Thanks for the kind words.

I did something similar with my FLM Maxx w/Flex Tek arms to stop the hinge pins from bending....no problems since.

Not sure about the completed weight...I am going to use Axial Oversize beadlock wheels so it will be a little on the heavy side. Originally I was going to go with the CF chassis, but then changed my mind and decided to go AL.
