    1/16 Gravedigger Custom build

    I recieved Mine in yesterday and Last night was fun. I converted it to brushless with the 380 and 3m esc. I took out that 27mhz reciever and threw in a 2.4ghz high output. I had most of the parts for the 4wd conversion but my half shafts from my rally were a tad to short. Im ordering traxxas cvds and proline mashers soon. Im building it for my wife to play with me. We are also getting rpm wheels to dye pink. Lol I know. The digger body will be for when I drive It. I cant decide on a different body to put on it for her custom paint job yet though. Any thoughts?

    Stock Summit in pink wouldn't look that bad... plus they are super tough due to the exo cage
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The Mashers are probably going to be too big... they are WAY bigger than stock summit tires. I can dig pink for a wife. I respect that.

    Yeah the mashers might be to tall. It may cause it to be unstable. I did not realize how big they were. I guess I will get some summit tires.

    After I mounted the Mashers on the truck, I did have an issue because of their size. I installed a second stock servo on it. The single servo would barely move the tires if it was not rolling first. I installed 15mm extensions on it and it helped out a lot with the stability. I also just installed the hub lockers on it that Traxxas just released it and now with all 4 wheels locked it plows through and over anything. It's starting to act more like Big Brother every day.

    Heres a pic after rpm arms and traxxas cvds. Looks pretty good. Probably need a different color for the toe links.
