Re: Aluminum Jeep body on 4 linked Bruiser Axles

OH, forgot about the aluminum windshield frame that has a thin layer of lexan in it to resemble real glass. Hinges work on the windshield too.

Re: EVX in Clod

You could always turn the rear axle around so it faces in the same direction as the front axle. I've seen that done on some of the racing clods. All depends on what you intend on using it for. If you spun the rear axle around you wouldn't have to worry about reversing the timing on the rear motor.
