    hahahha no turning back now. i do thanks pavementsurfer and cameron for inspiring me to build one. at that time i just cant make up my mind whether buy a DM-1 roller or a XO-1 build but then i like the revo platform and the suspension layout and i know revos better than any of the two.

    recieved some more parts today,


    few minutes later.....
    mocked it for body fitting and this is what i incounter with....
    front looks good..

    rear not soo good,

    looks like i need the short chassis or i can just cut this and make it a little shorter, after all i have the under chassis to put on still.

    not sure what an SO 3.0 i know the 3.3 is as close to a .20......you think your buddy want a longer chassis.....if so let me know maybe we can trade chassis.

    edit: looks like i got one hit at MP,

    What did you use to tighten the wheel set in the hub? My Traxxas 17mm hex hub tools doesn't fit in the hole, the space is smaller.

    funny how you brought that out cause still having hard time deciding wether go with white/black/dark metalic orange or black/silver/red, but then again i can always change my mind when i go to LHS and see what they have available colors.

    patra makes a window tint... paint # RC294 Window Tint
    VERY, VERY thin coats, you can get a paint run so easy...maybe two coats.
    or more if you want darker....back & side windows

    i think i remember using that long time ago and was not confident using it cause of what you said (paint run easily). i might try it again just to give it a realistic look
