Just basically finishing up this 1/7 hybrid buggy?!
My take on a Xl Typhon!

Letting locktite set and going to try to figure out best gearing for this thing

Mainly sharing this because my son painted the body
And I thought it came out great!
Would have came out almost perfect, if I hadn’t “scuffed” it up a little to much 😂

Maybe this is what i'll do. I'm trying to figure out what to put a super baja rey powerplant in that would be absurd :ROFLMAO: made a stretched mojave "1/5" typhon already and may do this with the infraction body next.

The Stretched Mojave? that’s a custom chassis right

That thing looks sick!

I love the xlwb rigs
So much lighter and nimble tan the 5th scales

I’d love to see how that xxl chassis drives!
What do you think about it ?

I like it, i haven't driven it off road yet. It had 1/5 grp's on before. it's fun to drift around in parking lots. Hit 74mph on the straight away at the high school track on the 110m hurdle side.

Nice!
I’m thinking that thing has to be so planted
How was it 75, pretty stable?

Nice to have that track to run on!

I Been thinking about getting the jbi adapters to try some 1/5 tires try on some of my Xl builds

Would you recommend?

Hopefully jbi is having a black friday sale! 😂

Appreciate all your help kind sir! 🤛
Hahahahaha. i don't think he will, he's going in for surgery wed and will be in the hospital through friday. Not sure if he's got anything set up for sure.
