Yea the build thread is there, a guy on here saw my link and said I should post it on this forum for the guys to see,

I just read that the losi LST diffs are very strong and they are dropping them in the emaxx/revo as upgrade, I used the same diff in my Cralwer. glad to see I picked a strong choice


Some more pics of the build

Thanks man, it was a rush job as I was leaving for Rubicon trail trip in my 1:1 and needed the crawler for the RC crawl comp

Everything is a tight fit under there, Mamba max, Axial Tranny, DIG servo, stereo amp circuit board and lots of wires
