    Nice to see some serious customization here!

    I love those slomo shots, it really shows how the car handles the dirt.

    Thanks @James and @Unusual for the kind words. Yesterday i did some tarmac runs and it flys..no need for the 4700 motor .

    Next is to deanodize the rear tower brace from black to silver. And order carbonfiber to make some new braces rear and front and chassi sides.

    Very nice!
    Does this car have the Durango shocks in the back?

    Problem with longer than default (98mm) pitch shocks is that the dog-bones can run into the drive-cups.
    Even my default shocks had this problem with my Mojave BLX.

    Since I run 95mm Fastrax that seems to be not happening any-more.
