Default My STRC LCG SLASH

Hello, here is my LCG-Slash using the STRC LCG-kit and a Rustler chassis. Motor is Traxxas VXL fed from 11.1 volt 3-cells Lipo.
The body is a Parma Ford Raptor made for the Slash (a bit out of scale re width, but OK). Color is white metalic. The car runs on 1/8 buggy rims and tyres fixed to the car with some adaters (don't know the make).
Front skid and bumper is RPM with light buckets, rear bumper is a cut-off stock Slash bumper.

This how it is now, while waiting to fix interior and some other stuff:

So does the truck really handle as well as they say it does with the low cg kit? I had a slash with buggy tires on it and it was nice but still a bit too tipsy for me

i think the buggy rims/tires really take away from the look of the truck, but the new Raptor body is NICE!

With the LCG kit and the Rustler chassis its a complete difference from the stock Slash: It is more like a Blitz to drive exept it turns quicker. The STRC LCG kit combined with the Rustler chassis put the CG nearly 50mm lower.
As it is 70 cm snow here and nearly 10 celsius below zero I havent really tried the wheels yet, but similar tyres worked well on a Blitz I once had - so why not on this truck. Look forward to summer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here in Australia it only snows the mountains, in the winter.
And we don't have many mountains.
But summer daytime temp is somewhere between 32 celsius and 42 celsius.
You get sunburnt very quickly.
