Nice set of upgrades @LunchBox! The Granite is coming along nicely.
Thnx @WoodiE I'll get some pics up soon...... My father in law was driving it at the park today and drove it right off the bridge it was upside down tires still spinning jumped in got it out and drove it off just fine...... Everyone around was lie owe man that sucks your truck is done and when I took it out and drove off they didn't know what to say! He literally turned it into a boat the water was about 3ft deep the tire kept it afloat!
[DOUBLEPOST=1464496248][/DOUBLEPOST]I also got some atomic racing shocks for the front of the BLX granite!

Ok! Well they have a group of guys that race on Saturday night, 132ft drag race! I went out there this sat and raced with them. I can stay with them speed wise but I couldn't keep the front in on the ground! So I think I'll be converting the granite BLX to a drag racing mean machine! Updates to come!

I got some Grpracing street tires and some 17mm hex adapters. Trying this racing set up out to see if I like drag racing! Also going pick up a 15 tooth pinion to get a little more speed off the line!

Try adding some self adhesive wheel balancing weights to the front bumper,that should help keep your front end down.

20170128_120310.jpg 20170128_120307.jpg 20170128_120318.jpg doesn't look like anyones posted a while. But new to forum. Been doing a decent amound of custom work but mines just a granite mega rwd. Have a proline c10 body, aluminum shock caps, a traxxis 12t motor upgrade on stock esc, and proline rear tires. Anyone know if theres a SC body that can fit on the granite ? Want something wider.

Hey man thnx posting nice truck! I was looking for this post the other day and couldn't find it! Lol!

I still have the same body but changed my setup around! I haven't been very active int the online community for a few months! I'll get some up date soon!

Reading back I also noticed I mentioned the traxxas hub carriers. They was found for the rustler/bandit and I didnt like the way the felt turning. It was really stiff and put strain on the servo so that was removed! No worries now they have strc and hot racing!

My granite BLX is a street racer now, she only see's the street 4 nights a month! My sons granite is being rebuilt for bashing retired from racing, due to lack of performance! I built him a nice traxxas bandit! I'll post pics of it if @WoodiE don't mind!

What tires you have on the blx? I don't get traction for my life with mine even on dirt because of the motor upgrade

Old school panther slicks to race! I absolutely love the proline trenchers, best tires I have found! That's what I going with on the re build of the other granite mega / BLX convertion!

I also prefer softer compound tires! Stock d boots are to hard also stock traxxas tires!
