Please keep the pictures coming!

Could you post a pic of the truck from the front view so I can see the track width with those tires?

They look very good on there... An interesting change from the clod sized ones and being lighter will certainly help performance!

Will do!

I've ran these on AR60's and the track is shorter mainly due to the smaller width of the tire vs clod sized.
But that's part of the fun!

@ Bloodclod
Here's a front shot.
Also, I use plastic beadlocks so the weight of the tire/wheel is fairly light.

Idea for the electronics layout.
I think this might work!

I'm still diggin the build!

I like that you added the brace to the bottom side of the axle. I do the same. I think it looks better.

A little more progress.
Found these cool limiting straps and bought'em up.
I'm liking the look!
Also added some CPE aluminum steering links for good measure. I realized that the Bomber AR60 steering blocks are much different than the Wraith. Had to mount then a little differently but should work out fine.

Looking great! I'm digging the look of those straps in conjunction with those shocks!

Finally got out for maiden run!
No fooling around, I went straight for the 3s lipo and let it rip as this esc/motor combo was originally intended for. The truck drove great and handled the power nicely. But, dare I say, it's a bit overpowered...just a blip of full throttle and it backflipped and the aluminum cage was like a shovel chunking out clods of my yard. :lol: Maybe 2s is a better choice. Nah. 8)
I'm still woking on a body so here's a few "naked" shots. Might have to hit Justin up for a wrap!

So basically... it's trying to be a clod-buster... :mrgreen:

Looks pretty good and glad to see it's taking the abuse. :explosion: :popcorn:

Looking good boss! Never back down from a 3s brick! :twisted: :lol: I can get you setup with whatever you need for a wrap. Just give me a holler! Keep up the good work, I've been drilling over this one for quite sometime. Someday I'll have me a kk2 again 8)

Thanks man!
Yes, 3s is best...

I might hit you up for a wrap but It could be for a SC Body for my Senton. :)
