Made some more progress. Seems that there is a lot of silver in the front and rear suspension. I really intended for this to be a more purple than silver truck, so Im kind of thinking about changing some things. I have a Purple emaxx chassis Im going to build and it would probably look better with more silver in the suspension areas since the chassis is a solid purple piece. Not really sure what to do yet, but leave feedback if you have any suggestions.

Thanks for the comments guys. I thought about mixing the arms, but didn't like the way it turned out. Got a plan though I going to try switching some things up.

Not sure what the power will be except something small to go with the small frame. Ideally it would have a hcr tranny, but I have only seen one in purple and its not for sale. Im on the hunt for one though

Finally decided on how its going to be. Had to do a lot of changing of parts and colors to see what looked best where and on what truck (building a purple emaxx after this one). Ended up sticking with my original plans. I do have a little surprise for wheels though, I can't wait. Here's new pics.

The tie rods are suppose to attach beneath the knuckle, not on top like you have it.

I'm glad you got the front and rear bumpers on the right end!

She's coming along beautifully! I am jealous!

Thanks Paralyzed. I never can decide on the tire rods, I just like the way it looks with them on top usually. Since it wont be run, it doesn't really matter I don't think anyway.

Your the first one to notice/mention the bumpers. I like the fronts best so I got 2 of them instead of the flat rear one.

Here is a few more pics. Hope to have more updates by the end of the weekend. Got a few parts on the way :nod:

I got a HCR silver trans today. Purple would be Ideal, but this will have to do until I can find purple. I've only ever seen one. Also got some new shocks. I need yalls opinions on if I should use the purple ones or stick with the silver Progressives.
