Default Traxxas Bullet based Blitzer Baja Thing...

This is a Traxxas bullet that i recently purchased on Ebay, mainly for the wheels, that are on my Wild One Project. I was debating on whether to sell it, keep it or fix it up and sell it, so that's where it's at now, fixing it up, making it look nice, and selling it.

The hard part is done, narrowing the front end, shortening the wheel base, cutting the rear fenders and mounting the body, which proved to be the hardest part. All that's left, is to cover the body mounting holes. Paint it, JB weld the wheels to the hex adaptors and a few finishing touches.

DON'T WORRY the Sand Slinging Slasher is Awaiting a brand new Painted Monster beetle body, and is sporting new wheels and tires now.

Onto the pics:

I narrowed the front about 2", so it stands at about 7 1/2 inches wheel to wheel, which is narrower than my Sand Slinging Slasher(frog) , the rear is 8" wide wheel to wheel, and i cut out the rear fenders, cause they would rub when the suspension was compresed.

Besides, I cant go narrower on the front, the arm mounts are side by side.

Thanks for the compliment by the way

Nope, haven't run them yet.

The Bullet won't be run, cause is on Ebay at the moment, if it doesn't sell, I'll be tempted to throw in a 19t motor and having my way with it.

Hopefully it'll sell.

The Frog Based baja, it's my daughter's car, I'm just waiting to get my Wild One up and running, so that we can have our maiden drive at the same time.
