Agreed. I didnt want to say anything negative, not knowing what your intentions were.
Glad its intended to be 1.9's. This is going to rock.

Yes sir it is.







Frame was lengthened about 1 1/2 inches and the body mounts are bolted on.



MMMMMMM, spare parts that were cut off :twisted:



The SCX-10 just did not go with this body sssssooooooo I picked up some RC4WD Toyota axles. I know these axles will help tie everything together.



Another thing this project needed is a MSD Quicksand winch. I think it will look right at home on this build.
