    And I've been using my teeth lol. The build looks great! Your blower fan is backwards. Since it's an induction fan its most efficient working with the forward motion of the car. In all honesty the fan is completely unnecessary for a vehicle of this weight. I would have gone with the Traxxas 7075 aluminum towers since I have bent those 6061 strc towers. I hope you don't experience that on your build though. I really like those 2.8s with low profile street fighters. I'm going to have to use them on my P4de truggy.

    LOL on the teeth!

    Thanks, I thought long and hard about that fan, in the end I went with the backwards Firebird Trans Am look because I though it would funnel less crap into the fan area. That's my story and I'm sticking to it

    The STRC towers came with the Roller so, here I am... I also bought a set of STRC for my Ultimate so I guess I'm double screwed

    I hope the wheels look proportioned to the Ford Focus body. They look a bit big on the Trucks. With knobbies, not bad, but the low profile really accentuate the wheel diameter.

    Thanks BEvan! Who would think a Traxxas Rally might end up being a garage Queen? . I have a few more pretty parts for it but really I'm anxious to see how it goes with this power system in comparison to the MM2-2400kv in my Ultimate.

    Yeah I'm getting use to all the color on both chassis now


    A small update, I got the ESC mounted as I received the Traxxas mount today. It's the one in the background

    I had sort of wanted to try these Integy steel drive shafts. They look solid, time will tell how long they last. I noticed the suspension action is not as smooth as the Ultimate with the Traxxas steel shafts, so I may end up getting another set of those. These can then be spares in my parts box. we'll see how well they work.

    Here are the Integy Shafts on the Rally







    I love the Traxxas ones I installed on the Ultimate!

    The action on the Traxxas ones are really smooth! The suspension has never felt better!
