What I'd love to do, but figure out how is the paint a muscle machine type clod doing a wheelie with huge nod bottles strapped to it. That would have to be a decal though and I don't know anyone that can draw that great. Lol

I didn't even think of NOS!

Now that makes great sense! Do up some fake bottles with the NO2 symbol, I think that is the symbol for NOS.

Now your thinkin man!! Only way to go! (Do the music anyway)

I won some axles on eBay that came off a project clod. They have thundertech cvd's, one has a locker in it and rear steering locked out, the other has aluminum steering knuckles already installed. I believe they had upper 4link mounts also. For the price I think it's a pretty good deal at $96 shipped

I wasn't going to, but that's all the axle upgrades I plan on doing with the exception of aluminum axle tubes and adjustable motor mounts. It's about $300 worth of parts for less than a 1/3 of the cost. Plus now I can order the stock aluminum bellcrank steering kit from CPE and I'll have my stock chassis clod running for my daughter to drive once the zilla is going. It'll have 4 tmaxx shocks, rear lockout if needed, knuckles trimmed for better steering, aluminum steering bellcranks and links, and an evx2 with Titan motors. That truck should be more than capable for my daughter to run.

The carbon fiber I got looks really nice. I think it'll be really strong and look good once I figure out what I'm going to do. :lol:

Had a busy weekend, but I was able to get a couple hours to work on the clods. I got the axles off eBay torn apart and to my surprise, it looks like there is a CPE locker in the rear, hot racing aluminum knuckles on the front, but the two nice surprises were thundertech cvd's front and rear, and an Integy ball diff in the front which looks identical to a thundertech ball diff the new axles are missing some bearing and the axle supports so I robbed those off my zilla to put on the stock clod. So now I have one axle mounted and ready to go on the rear off the stock chassis and so hopefully next weekend the stocker will be running. I also got my new shock mounts that I'll get pictures of later. I also got the new rear steer lockouts from bigjeepzz installed. Things are coming together nicely on the zilla. I'm hoping it'll be done by September.
