    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!

    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
