Here it is with the slash below it.
Sidewinder/vxl combo
32p gearing @ 16/56
Quad rear shocks with traxxas xxl ultra shocks
Locked rear diff
Smaller spacers in all shocks for more travel!
Get switch tires with axial beadlocks for the rough stuff because the stock tires are bald!!!
Front aluminum hex's, stock front hex moved to the rear for no rub!

Let's see yours!

Bro just get one!!
yes it is to long,to heavy,to narrow,under powerd,has little suspesion...and when you drive it on a track you mite as well be driving a plank of wood with wheels... wheels that its has trouble staying on around corners with that lovely thing called traction..you will not have any control over what it does in the air and the chassis will smack the ground over every single jump whoop and dip.the scale skid/bumper likes to find the knuckles of landings like you wouldnt belive and its also fun to try and persuade it to turn in hard whithout any crazy steering input if your trigger is at anything but the neutral position...


But for some reson its the funest truck in the world to drive.
it mite be because it will make you feel like a drift king
or a pro driver cause you you will be pinned on every strait and sweeping corner
and once you learn you have to scan-flick this little piggy around the tight turns the fun has just begun...my favorite thing about this truck is the look on guys faces when this little plain white truck in stock trim is being flung all over the track doors first trew every turn and chassis is slaping everthing and they look at you like WTF!?!? then you get door to door with one of their $400-$500 trucks and beat it round the track thats the best.trust me if you can drive it rite it will perform
chupacabra and 7car7 like this.

Changed/removed stickers, modded lights, painted inner body black, detailed hood lines & vents, a few new sets of rims & tires, quad shock mod (Blitz rears, removed shims from stock shocks as well for more height) & cut out windows/added window nets & drew on some trophy truck-style taillights (because it looks better than stickers LOL)
