This is some high quality work @joostin420! Everything looks manufactured, it’s clean and fresh looking. Awesome job! I can’t wait to see it painted!

Thanx. will have a running video for sure of both the x-bug and silver tomahawk Kraton. I promised myself I would not run the Kraton either until this project was finished also :p

Of course no sticker set for this custom body... had to measure out and cut my own windows. Had some black vinyl wrap left over from an auto head unit bezel I did 2 years ago. The vinyl is way easier to work with compared to the normal stickers - able to get all air bubbles out super easily ;)

Redesigned the battery tray plates and cut the chassis to fit the graphene packs laying down versus standing on edge.

Thanx man. I don’t know the exact speed but it is fast. my tomahawk Kraton is faster for sure by far.

I guess I’ll have to get a GPS now

Waited a couple weeks for these wheel hexes to arrive - 2 of 4 have malformed splines on the insides :cry:

Installed the 2x good ones on the front. I didn’t think going from the stock 9mm to the aftermarket 13mm hexes would be noticeable, but seeing the difference in width of the front track compared to the rear it was worth the $20.
