That's totally cool! I'd love to see more pictures as well, without the body. I like the low ride height. She'll be a screamer for sure. The shocks looks a little silly leaning the opposite way, but if it works, run with it. How much did that chassis run you? I wouldn't mind having one like it.

Thanks. The chassis run me about $250.00 without links. The shocks work fine I'm getting about 11.5 inches of articulation with no binding. I have been working on this truck for over 6 mounths and still have not run it yet. I will keep you all up dated.

real nice, out of all the tubers i've seen people with of his, yours is by far the most realistic one that i've seen yet. it's probably cause it's more of a "full" tuber, rather then the shorter ones you normally see that he makes. this one has that more "real" like monster truck tuber look. nice truck.

Okay, that's seriously become my new favorite TXT-1, two speed project truck. Very, very nice.

The steering lock-out and servo plates, are from Xtreme carbon fiber products, right? I have got to get me some of those! Also, where did you get the mounting block for the lower axle suspension links?

Thank you all. Yes the steering and lockout plates are from Xtreme carbon fiber products, and I got the lower link mounts from http://www.hobbyetc.com/ They are GPM racing products.

I have run the truck with a 14x1 trinity D6 with 9t pinion and 72t spear and the one motor is just fine for my taste. This is a heavy truck but it has quit abit of power with one motor. I might add another later but for the test runs the 14x1 is great so far. I should have more parts in next week sometime and I will take more pictures too. Thank you.
