This is my other stocker truck. This truck truely is stock with exception to the bearings and the ESC.

I left out a few screws here and there and left others loose to soften things up a bit. I also cut the top "snap together" portion off of the stock shocks to increase travel to 1" of compression. To counter the bouncy suspension, I increased the size and number of holes in the rim so the tires will deflate quickly.

These are the plastic wings I'm always refering to. Notice the missing screws.

This body damage, including the lack of grill was done about the 3rd run after painting up this body for the truck. That's why there's a battering ram now in place.

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Nice idea about leaving the screws out to help it work.

That battering ram is very nice. Maybe you sould throw a grill guard on it to help protect it more. :lol:

The battering ram came after my g/f took out the stock bumper INCLUDING the mounting brackets (sheared off the chassis ) and then the grill and hood were toasted! LOL Since I installed it, there has been significantly less damage to this truck! LOL :D

I like the 4400's because of the long runtime, but they are very heavy for anyone concerned about overall weight. These are a "D" sized cell, not the sub C of a standard stick pack. With this truck I probably get about 30 to 40 minutes run out of a charge. I forgot to mention that this truck has the SG2 Sapphires, Modclod still runs the stock cans.
