Hey, thanks for response! I'm having to slow things down I rushed in and bought things in error :-( ! The main mistake was the wheels I bought Duratrax 2.8's Six Pack Mt which would have been fine for the project...mistake was that I bought wheels for the Gas Powered version so the wheels don't have hex's!!!!! Gutted, so have to buy replacements now! Hopefully can shift the others on eBay!
I did strip the truck down to bare chassis, removed all stickers and Rit dyed black which came out great! Building back up slowly and just swapped transmission to a Aluminium Integy one which looks great!
