Ace of Spades (Kraton 6s V5 build)

My Ace of Spades Kraton 6s V5 build. I had an absolute ball disassembling and rebuilding this truck.

General RC Information

This is my Kraton 6s V5 Ace of Spades. I had so much fun with this build. The majority of the work was spread out over approximately 4 months. I will list all of the upgrade parts here with a short video of the custom hydro-dipped body I finished it off with. Shout out to the good folks here in the Arrma forum who were an invaluable help along the way.

Challenges Faced
Many challenges - beyond a stripped screw here or there (Thank you MIP for fixing that). Hands down, the biggest challenge was installing the new 7075 chassis. Learning the 10-screw method for removing the entire front clip with steering assembly in one shot was my biggest lightbulb moment, a real life saver.
