Bearing kit, shocks, wheels, and wiring completion are all that is left and most of that is in the mail. Everything else remains stock and plastic and what needs replacing from the new power will be figured out as I break it. Updates to come

Very nice indeed. I run the mamba micro pro/4000 0808 in a mini 8. Four pole power. Its enough to do a standing back flip. Surprised me! Can't wait to read more about your little beast.

Ok I got the car up and running and have a noticeable grind coming from somewhere. Motor spins free, spur / pinion alignment checks good, and no visual damage to diffs. Got a bearing kit ready to go in which I am hoping will help but decided I might as well upgrade the front and rear diffs while I got it apart in hopes that the bearing/diff upgrades will solve my noise. I have seen many options spread out throughout the forum. I would like a little advice on the right set up for the diffs. There are so many options and methods
My plan is to install the bearing throughout. For the front it is to install a new RC18T standard diff and in the rear a RC18T ball diff. OR Maybe just all standard diffs with metal gears and metal front and rear driveshaft assemblies? Am I barking up the right tree??
I had the ball diffs in my Rally, and they lasted about 2 runs with the stock power system. The balls got flat spots on them so quick you would think that they were made of ice. IMO, I would wait to upgrade the diffs until the metal ones from the Teton become available.

looks like an awesome but tiny build lol will we see a new body
I actually got super good at paintin bodies some how lol. I love my last job on my 2wd slash
Here is the video of the test drive on the finished product. A little fun indoors then I head out to my only option at the time to open up...my crappy road. The road outside is rough with lots of cracks, rocks, and little chunks of ice floating around. The car took a beaten and my shiny new body and wheels are no longer shiny lol. You see 3 flips from cracks and rocks but there was a worse one off camera. I am happy to say not one single thing broke and over all I am happy with the way it worked out. Looking forward for the snow to go away so I can find a nice tennis court or smooth parking lot to really run it.
I need to get one of these for the winter time in my house.
My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
Um sir....that little car is a beast. I've only had mine 2 days and already have parts coming in. I'm looking forward to more metal parts for these.
