Good one! I was really surprised at how easy it all fits together.

coming together pretty easy so far. Just need to play with radio tray a little to not hit upper links and continue on the rear end. Then figure out suspension not sure if I want to try cantilevers from a revo or just go the standard shock set up..

Front and rear gearboxes all mounted up with steering servo mounts and servos as well as the stock steering rods and pounder shocks for now.. Planning on putting traxxas shocks and custom rods.
