As I make changes to the Mojave, I'll post them here.

First thing I did was switch to dBoots Katar that come stock on the Talion. They'll probably be permanent.

Next I installed TBone Racing Front Chassis Mud Guards and Rear Mud Guards

#10131 - TBR

Thanks crimsonfancy for reviewing the guards, I’ll be using some cheap stocking in the short term until I can source a Dusty Motors or similar bag.
How different is the offset on those wheels? They look a bit more inboard... are they? Handling change much?

I honestly don't have an answer. I stuck the Katars on there pretty much right away and it does seem like they fit a little tighter to the chassis than stock. Handling change I also can't speak to because I didn't pay much attention to stock.
When I get some time, I'll play around with both sets of treads and see what happens. The red wheels are still almost brand new.
Thank you very much for watching my video and I plan to make more about this truck as soon as I can. I like to improve and I realize that I could be more entertaining and informative by planning ahead and making better edits with more footage. I don't really know why but I'm feelin pumped up about the Mojave and wish to see what I can do with it.

What’s a good powerful motor upgrade? Went huge w the wheels now I can’t go back!! Lol. Belted rides like a dream! A lot of adjustment and heat gun work.

Not gonna lie, those look sick AF on that B

And I’m usually not a fan of those types of thin LP tires.

Dang, that looks great! Not normally a fan of those wheels, but they look like they were made for that truck... (y)

As for power, seems lots of folks like the HobbyWing 4985/Max6 combo.
