    *UPDATE* Sledgehammer/Custom Wheelie Bar

    ive been away from the hobby for a while, so now ive started restoring and upgrading all my R/C's... u guys scared me into not going brushless... LOL so I found an old esc and installed a New Titan 550 12T, and also bought a traxxas 8.4v 5000mah NIMH and all i can say is OMG... I had to built a Custom Wheelie Bar... LOL can barley keep the front end down... I had a Trinity Speed Gem 13T bf w/ this setup and i have to say the Titan 550 12T is way better way more tq! I just ordered a Novak Smart-Stop Auto-Detect Module 2S-4S, and a Traxxas LiPo 2S 7.4V 7600mAh 25C, CAINT WAIT to try it out and see what it can do!!! I also didnt cut the moter shaft to close the gear cover i drilled a whole in the cover instead bc i put the gear on upside down bc the gear nut doesnt fall flush on the motor shaft, i also cut the body posts 1/2 inch so the Body is 1/2 inch Lower and cleaned up the body & painted the rims. Here r some pic...

    Looks good, glad you're having fun with the truck. I still say you could have ran BL, though!

    Man the Sledgehammer was my favorite Traxxas from back in the day. I would spend hours taking it apart just to clean, and re-grease all moving parts. Takes me back...

    OP, you should patent your wheelie bar design, lol. You did a great job there.
