Bad Wolf 8S Big Buggy

My Journey into Arrma 6S parts bin building. Goal for Bad Wolf was to Speed Run Over Grass Fields. Sports-fields, park grass and light rough bashing. Speed and Power! ~ Jeremy Clarkson

General RC Information

The start of my Journey after getting back into this hobby after a few sub-lifetimes it seems. I watched lots of YouTube video, read read read and after finding build logs on this site and some on YouTube it was clear this is by far the best way to learn outside of first had experience. I wanted to document my journey. I love to Learn and Teach when I can and Share and Show Process and Discoveries.

This is the 1st of (2) 6S-8S cars I've documented in this Build Log:
