This has come along quickly! What is are all the components based off of, Traxxas Slash?

Looks like it will be a screamer, but must be hard to change out the batteries.

It is based off a slash, runs a slash front end and rear end, and well as of now it is a bit hard to swap them out, but im planning to set up a quick change system with on of the side pannles so you cna lift it up and slide the battery out don't quite know how i wanna hinge it yet but ill get there, and im hoping to throw a Tekin system in it with a 8.5 or 10.5 motor, should rip!

I LIKE THIS! I have to say... who needs a Tamiya Wild One when you've got something like this!
I know you mentioned you are painting this in a scheme for your girl. That's totally awesome.
My little girl is still a baby but if she's interested at all in trucks I am looking forward to the day we get to build one together.

Agreed,! haha this is my second tube chassis buggy, my girl wanted sompthing like me to drive to im going to make it happen, i run a RC4WD Desert Storm buggy so now we can go have some fun at the track with these, (she already likes to drive my Associated SC10B) plus im gearing it mild to get her into the whole steering and driving without obliterating the vehicle.. shes done a number on SC10B before :explosion: ITs deffinetly a fun thing to do though,
