Made some more progress on the body.
Went simple on this one but it came out pretty cool. Took a gamble on the metallic purple but Tamiya color never disappoints! The metallic looks awesome. Some of my masking started to lift in the cold weather outside when I was painting :cry: so some of the lines aren't to my liking but I'll live with it.

That came out pretty good! :thumbsup:

I like how you have the esc right in the open like that. Should be good for keeping it's cool.

Thanks.
I like it so far. I'll probably put some of the decals on it and leave it be. On 3s power, it wont look good for long...

I actually didn't think about opening the bed up until i received the body and started playing around. Should work nicely!

Yes, the KK-2 is a work of art! Don't worry though, CPE makes some great stuff too!

I'd like to get some video soon. It looks so cool and realistic running without a body on!

You know it!
These are massive compared to AR60's.
I just started working on the front axle last nite and have and one axle cut and installed. Very cool. It''s going to be a bit of a slow build as I'm doing a lot of house work and my RC time takes a hit. :cry:

Some more progress!
I think I'm happy with where I'm at with this axle. The width is just a little wider than where I'm at with the AR60's without having to use a widener for the wheels. These are looking very beefy compared to whats on the truck now. :)

Some more work done on the Freestyle Axles. :)
Ended up going a little narrower on the width and kept it about the same as my AR60's w/17mm+ Brawlers. The rear axle is complete with lock outs installed. I used the leftover steering link as a tie bar for added support...and it just looks cool.

Also, an assembled Freestyle axle doubles as a club for self defense during a Zombie attack or if someone tries to snatch your Lipo pack.
(see below)

Finally got both axles done to do a mock-up on the KK-2 chassis.
So far, I'm pretty happy with how it's sitting right out of the gate. I may want to set the ride height a bit lower and re-position the shocks but we'll see. I recycled some old links I had from a Clod build along with some new Traxxas rod ends and made some lower links. This locks in the wheelbase at 13in dead. Also, I mounted the upper links one hole back for a small amount of positive caster. Finally, I installed some 6mm MIP outputs so I can use my current driveshafts.

On with some photos!
