Well I just thought I would share a few new photos of some of the changes made since the last time, I have installed a Mamba Max ESC w/ a CC BEC upgraded the steering servo to a Hitec 7995TG, I think I finally goy my ride height where I want it sitting at 2 3/4", running two stock Axial spacers in each shock with 35w oil and some shorter traxxas springs because I was getting two much preload wi the stock springs and two spacers, I also picked up one of fast eddy's spacer kits and let me tell you it is sweet, and since i had it I decided to space my shocks and lower links apart a little, I alsp picked up some TCS Delrin axle plates to mount on the rear axle, not sure what I am going to put the yet but it gives me place to put things and I like the way they look, and some Axial aluminum rear lock outs. Here are some pics

yeah its just right there on the verge of being an all out comp rig!!! as cool as alot of the comp chassis are that are out there, as long as the stock axial is setup right you can definatly use it as well as a comp chassis imo, doesn't mean its as good as some of the comp chassis' but if you set it up great and are a good driver its so comp capable....again great job on your rig curtis!!!
