Looking good. One suggestion for now. What's the wheel base? 2.2's are generally 12.5" max. If you plan to compete, it'll need to be 12.5"

Ok, another one. Upgrade those tires. Moabs are so 06. Get some Losi claws, Panther cougars, HB rovers, or PL's new chiesels.

the wheelbase in the picture was 13, but i changed it around now its at 12 i think, but i need to make a new chassis cause the shocks are too low making the truck sit to high with the 12 inch wheelbase, but i workin on a design for the chassis right now, and yeah ill get some newtires, and how is a good way to set up your tires? with foam? no foam? weights?

You can use fuel tubing inside the shock (under the shock piston on the shock shaft) to limit the shocks to get a lower ride height.

Definately use foams in the tires.

For weight around 4oz. front and 3oz. rear are good starting points.

Sounds like you are going in a good direction.. Hope to see you at HRCC comps soon or GTGs.. also check with http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=135 for any upcomming comps or GTGs..

BTW those TLT/Hi-Lifgt axles are a bit narrower then Axial or Wheely King axles.. I'm not saying that its a bad thing but it is narrower.. I do have a set of aluminum bead lock wheels by Meyhem with the TLT offset that will bring your track wider that never saw rocks or dirt.. see photo.. Only mounted tires for mock up and to see if it holds the bead.. LMK

sorry man, cant afford them, im sure there pretty expensive, i only spent about 150 bucks putting this thing together, but xtant thanks for the shock tip, it helped out a whole bunch, now the wheel base is just under 12.5, and its not too high.

I've heard the M2's are too soft. A friend of mine runs the M3 and his truck climbs well.

You have it backwards. M3 is softer than M2.

Hot tires now are hotbodies rovers. Proline chisel G8 compound.
