    I think that could look decent on the 'pede. Very "open-wheel-baja" feel to it.

    Thanks for the compliment Glypse. I did get a answer from one of the forem members about the shims. If I remember correctly, the shims are for the trans case. Not anything inside, but to shim how the case sits. Something like that.

    This is a 2"REM chassis with a bajr body I did a couple years back. I liked the looks!

    Protrac, vxl, modded 2.2 badlands, (back in the day), lol 2.8 badlands were soon ti follow.

    This will give you an idea, but I did cut alot of body away too.

    Just a little update, but a big step towards finishing my build. I have been struggling with the front body post due to the big nut from the losi shock mount being in the way. Well my friend came over yesterday with his new mt4-3g. As I was looking it over I noticed the front body post was a two piece design. Each post is secured with (2) screws. I really think they will work, and for only $7.19 on eBay its worth a shot. Well that's about it. The bajr body is in a closet awaiting a paint job. Time to get this thing rolling down the street. Peace

    Opps. I just remembered the shock tower is angled back. Oh well, as long as they pop through the body. I might be able to live with them with a slight angle. I hope so!

    Are you using the stock front body mount or the monster jam mounts? I have an REM front tower kicking around here and wanted to see for myself what the issue with the mounts is.

    Hey Baldy, thanks for your input. I have tried both traxxas post. Mj and stocker. Check out this picture. The losing shock mount nuts are my problem.

    I'd have that puppy trimmed to fit around the shock, mounted on the back side of the tower, by drilling it out to use the same bolt as those shock mounts use, held on by the nuts. You could have the lid on this afternoon!
    Lol don't say it! You'll get yourself in trouble.

    Dread, I understand what your saying, but the shock mount isint long enough to capture the shock mount. Oh and I did run it two hours ago. Used a spc 2s lipo. Man was it fun. Had to get use to turning it though. Since the chassis is extended it drives different than stock. It sure was a blast to drive. Everything worked well, except for front left wheel. It won't tighten up all the way. I am using stock axels and have the spacer on back and front. Need to figure that issue out as well.

    Holy hardware batman! Do you need a 10mm wrench for those nuts? Lol. Looks like you got yourself into a bit of a bind, since i recall you saying that you had to drill out the holes to fit those stand-offs. The only solution i can think of that will allow you to use this setup is to grind down the bottom edge of the stand off to allow more threads to come through. This will shorten the stand off a little, so youd have to adjust the bottom mount accordingly, but at least you'd be able to mount the body posts.

    Or you could drill out the aluminum stand offs that come included with the REM tower to allow for the use of a larger diameter screw thats long enough to also mount the body post assembly.

    Thanks Baldy. Those are all creative ideas you have. The problem is I lost my creativity. Every time I get back into this build and get my creative juices flowing, then work calls. Work just called and I have to go offshore in the morning. Hopefully I can quick fix the problem out there and get back home. I will figure this out. Just need to have no distractions. I guess you read above that I ran it earlier today. Man I really like the way it handles. Long and mean. Thanks for your help.

    OK I did it. Please don't laugh at the traps. It is sturdy. I drilled hole in mount for nuts to fit in, then made two grooves on top for traps to fit in. I also drilled hole for tyrap to go through bottom of mount. I am still waiting on those mt4 body post I ordered to come in. Either way I think it will be good enough.

    Hey Don. Lookin great man. I love it. Question on the front MJ mount. Why not use the screws on the tower? U could use the one the MJ mount needs, than any other for ur front shocks.

    Very much looking forward as I have LOVED your build. Think you have done a fantastic job. Lookin great, and keep it up!

    Check out my new Winter build when u get a sec too. Holla

    Got the body painted. This is the most two tone paint job I ever attempted. Would have been easier if the light outside would have been working.

    Thanks Baldy! 10 min before my batt was finished charging it started to rain. Has not quit since.😠 I am itching to do some speed runs and try different gearing options. I am going to have to get a GPS now that I got a new phone. Not taking a chance with this phone to clock speeds.

    thank you Loot! I have really enjoyed this build and because of you and several other members, I can see myself building another p2de. I learned a couple of new tricks tonight while reading your new build thread and I want to give those a try. Peace

    Well I was outside making a few speed runs. The green hornet was flying and sounding great. Until I flipped in a ditch full of water. It was upside down in the water. Not fully submerged but the whole chassis was. I ran to it and disconnecter the battery. The ESC was still beeping its powered up status. I do have two holes in the receiver box but not a drop in there. I took the battery and 2400 motor and put in a bag of rice. I had sprayed my ESC with konform coating. I have the. Chassis and ESC in the sun. I think I will put the ESC in a bag of rice as well. As far as the Servo, I don't know. I had painted the servo so it might have been sealed enough. It wasent in the water for long. Man this sucks, but I have high hopes!

    The esc is already splash resistant, so with the extra coating you applied im sure you'll be fine. With the power to the esc is when you have to worry the most, and since it was still working when you unplugged it, it should be good when its all dried out again. My castle element esc has been completely covered in snow, water, mud and everything in between while running and still works perfect.

    Dirty, the truck looks hot! I like the black / lime ice combo. The sunlight treats the green really well

    But I'm sorry to hear about the water incident. Ive done the same thing and it all dried out fine. How are you liking the extended chassis?
