So nobody cares? I guess this may as well be a journal, for all you guys care
No offense intended, but this is a forum where we are free to reply to anything we wish. It would appear (only guessing here) that you are asking for pity replies, and not genuine replies from people who are actually impressed with your work. It's somewhat irritating on your part if this is what's going on, but as I've said before, that might not be what's actually happening. We don't have to enjoy what you are doing for you to enjoy it. Keep that in mind.

Enjoy your new upgrades

Thank you for putting that out there. I belive the same thing is happening; people will post when people want to. I get that you want more attention and feedback, but you cant force people to comment out of pity. Your project is evolving well, so keep it going! Just dont expect a comment after every update.

Yeah, I here you guys, I'll put that into my mind as common forum etiquette that should always be heeded.
I am really enjoying myself. The pics are all on my new camera, and I don't have a computer here with me to upload them to photobucket.


But.... on to the build itself.
I don't have a soldering iron here, so my monster motor won't work until I'm home again.
The wheels stick out of the senders a little, but it still looks realistic, like one of those redness mud trucks.

I'm heading up to pa for my friend's birthday so there I'll finally be able to purchase the shock rebuild kit that I've been needing. I might even buy traxxas big bores, to alleviate my problem of shock oil seeping through the shock bodies.

Well until then,

Well, I'm going to kill two birds with one stone.
By buying the e-maxx big bore shock set(8 rear shocks).
That takes care of my friends birthday gift, and my want of long travel front suspension, albeit without my psuedo-wide mod set up.

Well, with 17mm hubs, I would be unable to fit my 2.2" wheels+tires. Or my Sc tires as well
