Nothing amazing, just thought i'd share my MERV journey so far...
Bought it wrecked off eBay, and sold some of the extra bits i didn't need, in the end it cost me £80. It already had TQi tx and RPM a-arms all round:
Then the work started. New chassis (dyed black), dirt hawgs on desperado wheels, some bearings, TQI receiver, stiffer springs and 80wt oil, RPM knuckles f & r, tarted up the body a bit, new wing, Hi-tec servo (86w) and hey presto:
Next was my recently painted body, wheelie bar, and some temporary lights:
Still to do:
fix slight range issue
thicker shock oil
shim and re-oil diffs
oh and actually drive it!!!...

shaping up pretty good!
Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot
Body Color/Rim/Tire combo just looks awesome man, great work!

Lookin good! Those are the same lights I use for my truck. I tore mine down and wired them up and epoxyed them in the front grill...But def like your idea of what you did with them. Just need a red marker for the light in the back...
