    I just stripped my entire chassis down. I am going to dye my chassis, rockers, pushrods and toe links tomorrow.

    While I have the chassis in pieces, I am going to add bearings to the steering and to the rockers. I will also take my diffs out and shim them.

    Actually, they are glued with some ''ultra-glue'' like ''crazyglue''. But also, i run a 19/50 ratio, and shifted gears in the tranny...

    Thanks! I can't stand that gray.

    I think its going to look even better once I add a few touches of aluminum. I will probably pick up the Traxxas red aluminum toe links and push rods tomorrow.

    Well... AFTER deciding to re-build my shocks and use green slime on them to get them to seal.. I noticed the chassis was broke under the front shocks, and the upper shock mount was broken.. hmmmm
    So, I sniped a new chassis off the bay, then ordered a T Bone Skid, a new wing (it has seen better days) and some aluminum shock mounts. So, Ill be tearing down and building soon

    if youre using the stock shock bodies, youll have issues with that 100wt shock oil! Id put heat shrink on the bottom caps to help hold them on!

    Took it out this morning to test the new suspension settings with the new shock oil alone. A step in the right direction. Runtime was only about 15 minutes with the factory battery, is that normal? I've never bothered to time my first few runs. This pack is on its now 7th cycle.

    15 minutes is actually a bit on the long side.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Oh. Ok....Awesome. My only point of reference with this is my older 18th scale R/Cs.
    My old 2wd Stadium 1/18th truck got about 25 minutes and my old 4wd 1/18th Truggy got about 20 minutes. Those times were after hop-ups.
    I know this is a bigger vehicle so I was expecting less, just didnt know how much less. Know how long a single Lipo pack lasts?

    learning how to drive at the local indoor clay track. landed square on its back end from about 6 feet up. I didnt realize clay could pack down the way it does. might as well be concrete
