CC-JK

Well after not bothering with it for a long time, trying to sell it off, I finally decided to work on it this week.
Here are some updated photos of getting the body fitted up with the chassis.

Its turning out to be a fun little build. Not sure how crazy Im going to go with it after the body is mated up but we shall see.

8) I like it a lot and it fits the CC-o1 chassis really well. Remove the front block and you will be set. How does the rear end sit when the shocks are mounted?

I'm kind of a CC-01 nut so if you have questions, let me know. My build thread...

thanks alot. I was gonna slim down that front block but then I got to thinking it looked sorta like a front stubby on most jeeps. I was reaching on when I posted this to see if there would be yay's or nay's on it as I am stumped myself if I should remove it or not. I do think youre right tho it looks too thick for the front end.

I havent found a spot to mount the rear shocks yet. It got late last night and I thought I wouldve gotten some time in on it tonight but.......

I think I will need to cut a section out of the rear of the body to get the shocks to work. Im not sure if I have the body height in the rear finalized either. I need to work a few issues out yet to decide it fate.

How fast are these things and what is a good motor for it? I didnt want it to be too fast as thats only going to ruin the body. lol!

Thanks Spider! I just realized that link was to the contest thread. Glad you found it though.

The Stock silver can motor is really fast. I think on the 6th page of my build thread is a video that will give what it looks like on a 2s lipo.

I did add a HPI GRU to slow it down though.
