    Looks amazing. Did you do the paint yourself. Excellent work. Im a big carl fan. Maybe for your next one you could get the clear Kyle Bush truck body and paint up Carls truck series truck. That would be cool too.

    I can not take credit for the paintjob myself. I asked a friend to do it and he really did a great job with the details considering this is a 1/16 body. Also, locking the rear diff makes both rear tires turn the same speed. If one tire comes off the ground it will not spin faster than the other tire on the ground. It really helps with taking off in a straight line. Drag cars use it this way. Also drift cars are setup this way to help keep the rear end under better control. The Traxxas Part # is 7381. It replaces the gears inside the differential and locks them together. I used these parts to lock BOTH the front and rear diff's on my Mini Summit to help it crawl better.
