    Let's go Off-Roading!!!...

    I was bored last night,and had my Summit torn down to replace some parts.
    Stuck my Summit shocks,and a worn out set of Slash tires/wheels on my KB.
    It gained 11/16" ground clearance.







    In my opinion,it actually looks a little more like a "Rally Car" now.

    As it sits right now...I can fully compress the suspension...and the tires just clear the fenders.

    Honestly...I don't care for the look...just did it for fun.
    Tomorrow I'll take it for a rip outside for a bit and see how it acts.
    Might see if I can talk my daughter into recording it with my phone.
    Then...I'll be changing it back to stock configuration.

    Well...I ran it today with a 2s lipo.
    Sorry...but nobody else was at home to video it for me.
    It did better than I expected it to...especially since these Slash tires are almost completely bald.
    My grass needs mowing in a bad way...and it never got stuck once...not even when going through the ditch.
    It flies off the ramp pretty decent.
    In tight turns it does seem to roll quite easily(I'm thinking probably due to the high COG plus the skinny tires).
    Good thing is...when it rolls...about half the time(or more) it lands back wheels down.
    I'll leave it like it is for now,and see if I can get some video footage later.
