    some optical and technical changes

    Changes for the durability and for the scalig-look.

    - Front Skid Plate Cover from New Era Models
    - Rear Skid Plate Cover from New Era Models
    - Roll Cage from New Era Models
    - Berarrings for the Rocker





    The window look is great and it helps cool down the Elecrtonics

    no, thers not from Traxxas. But you can find them everywhere. Just look for the right size: 4mm x 7mm x 2.5mm

    I bought them online in Switzerland

    im not a fan of the slash at all to be honest, but the cut-out windshield replaced with mesh, and the cut-out window replaced with a grid of what looks like zip ties ( ? ) ..... it looks awesome! great mods! they are both technically functional, and somewhat realistic to the real truck.

    again, great mod job!

    Thanks for your feedback. The thing that looks like zip ties are from an old Bicycle Tube. Cut in small strips and glue it to a net :-)

    adding bearings to the mix will make the motion of the rocker smoother and it will have less friction when in use

    The 'rockers' are the gray plastic pivots that connect the shocks to the red links that go down to the a-arms... The rockers only have plastic bushings from the factory, creating excess slop/play in the suspension movement -- replacing the bushings with bearings makes everything smoother and less sloppy....
