Well, I got my Berzerker chassis today :D

Just waiting on a few parts from TTR before I start to assemble my gearboxes and such.

I just hope I can assemble the Bezerker onto the gearboxes correctly ... it is quite complicated looking :lol:

I am impressed with the craftmanship and engineering that's gone into this chassis ... its really quite amazing 8)

Update
---------
It's been awhile since I've had enough free time to myself to finally start putting together my Berzerker race truck (I've had the parts sitting on my work bench since April and I just started assemblying it today :lol: )

Here's a few pics of what I got done so far (bear in mind that this is my first time building a Clodbuster and all the aftermarket parts going onto the truck has made my build progress a little slow :wink: )....

Still have lots to work on (having loads of fun building) ... I'll keep ya posted :)

Apparently, I made a renaming change to one of my folders in my website directory that screwed things up a bit :oops:

Updated the URLs ... you should be able to see the pics now :)

I got around to painting the body this evening.

I'm no airbrush master but I think it looks decent for a couple hours worth of work (it's all airbrushed except for those two little decals at the rear of the truck).

Nice truck!!! Doesn't waiting for all the parts to show up Stink? Thats where I am at with my builds. I also noticed the extra TLC you need when custom building a truck with tons of aftermarket parts. But when it hits the road It will all be worth it :D
Life is too short to be in a hurry Slow down and enjoy the ride!!!

Well, my truck is 99.9% completed .... just waiting on the OFNA servo saver so I can steer it ... hehe

I had it out yesterday testing (dead stop accel) and adjustng the ball diffs .... it hauls :D

I had to take it apart 3 times before I got the diffs adjusted just right ... what a pain that was (I definitely know how to tear it down and put it back together in a speedy manner now ... lol)

The Trinity Speed Freaks 12x2 motors are awesome ... if I hammer the throttle from a dead stop ... it shift the weight to the rear of the truck and the front wheels spin so fast that I had little bits of rubber from the Imex Pullers hitting me in the face.

The Team Orion Platnium 4800 Li-Po battery sure supplies the power. I had to remove the plastic casing to make it fit the Berserker chassis.

I post some finished pics once I receive the servo saver (might install the limited rear steering later on).
