Thank you for the complements sir!

A lot of time & patience has gone into finding all the parts for this build. But its been worth it, as it truly is a work of art! I love the idea of how much engineering and machine time has gone into all these parts. And the quality is next to none...purely awesome stuff! I'm very fortunate to have had the opportunity to build this truck.

All I'm waiting on are some center dogbones, and electronics. Then this beast will be ready to run!

Grabbed some 5/16" aluminum round stock and made some body posts for the predator. Mcmaster Carr supplied me with the 5/16" bore aluminum set screw collars.


The round bar fit a bit snug at first, but after some sanding and polishing they fit quite nicely






Forgot to drill holes for body clips so still need to do that.

That will happen, don't worry! As soon as I get a charging setup and some Lipo's, it will be game on for my FLM truck.

I keep getting distracted with buying parts I find for sale that I seem to think I need haha

Got some UE Slot 8 wheels a while back that needed some polishing.


Now they're all polished up, and IMEX tires are on. Just need glue!
