Ahh I see what you mean about the chassis being a pain in the a** to mod. I have a mt2 that I converted to electric and put on the ckrc s/c chassis kit. but that front is pretty wide. I'll probly just stick to plan A and use the rustler front end I have with a custom chassis plate. But I will be using those rear lateral arms on my build cause they are cheap and look great. but thanks for the pics.

What kind of welding did you do? Brazing? Welding?

This seems to be the hangout for Trophy owners. All I did to mine was install a brushless setup from my Exceed Driftstar and the Axial wheels/Flat Irons off of my crawler. Just thought I'd share that changing a stripped spur gear isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Remove plastic driver torsos, remove 4 screws holding diff cover on, and raise/slide back the whole mess and let the driveshafts fall out.

Stripped spur was from when I forgot to tighten the inspection cover after checking the pinion setting and dirt got in there during some fun bashing. Once I had the slipper tightened up this thing took quite a beating until the spur stripped. Fun truck!

I'm currently cutting up some aluminum sheet for bodywork. Blue tape for patterns.

I just found the "other" thread in the review section. Sorry if I crapped in yours!

Mine started life as a 1st gen MTDT RTR, with the 15T Firebolt & stock electrics. Currently not running, but modifications in process. New HPI Ford body, Axial 1.9 beadlocks (hub carriers filed down for clearance), metal pivot balls & full adjustable turnbuckles all around. Upgraded HPI F/R driveshafts & universals. Axial Exo light bar kit & radiator (radiator is just a placeholder for a pair of functioning fans). Front & rear Blitz OE shocks, with Integy piggybacks added as a bypass (GMade diaphragm & piggybacks to replace all 4 corners soon). Axial Exo rear lightpod, cut down to the center two lamps, and full LED kit are sitting on the bench.
