I stripped out the stock servo horn and one of the shock retainers collapsed . That was the tool box that fell out in the video .

Ahh... okay.

Oh and I fixed the preview window on your vid for you.
No sound though, was there supposed to be?

No sound for me as well. Fun little course though and your truck likes to lean in the corners. :wink:

Painted the chassis braces true blue pearl . The wife got a little upset when i put the tires in the tub to wash them. The boys helped me scrub dry and put some tire shine on.

Got some more paint and put a couple more coats on the bottom side of the chassis plate. Their are a lot of deep scratches . Picked up some decals aka(stickers) and the boys chose this one . The plan is to put several coats of polyurethane over it in hopes it wont get ripped off too soon.

Got Overkill cleaned up and finished painting the roof rack . Boys made me put their trucks in the picture since they helped clean Overkill. We have been cleaning him up for 2 weeks off and on in plans to have Overkills picture put on a t-shirt. The wife thought it would be cute for a fathers day gift but he was covered in mud at the time.
