Well I've had this thing almost 2 weeks now and im loving it. Haven't run it as much as I've wanted to as it started raining pretty much the day I got it, but I've got 3 packs in at the house and a couple packs in at the local track. The track is better suited to 1/10th scale so I can never build much speed, but with my 6500mah liHV 4s batteries I'm getting between 15 and 20 minutes of runtime. Anyway, since last week I've added the aluminum diff cans to all 3 riffs, a couple extra bodies and wings and I grabbed a set of the Proline 3.8" Super Swampers as they dont balloon nearly as bad and work better on the street than the Trenchers do. The Sweep "dirt" tire is amazing on road, but the sidewalls are so small and stiff that they seem to transfer a lot of shock to the truck when I'm blasting down curbs or hitting the driveway lips etc. Anyway, on to the pics. The crawler is my Traxxas TRX-4, which is hardly Traxxas anymore as the frame rails are about the only stock piece left...

@Supradude26 that body looks mean man, I like it! Is that chrome or gray?
Thanks! Of the 3 I've done so far I like this one the best. I've got one more body coming Wednesday and I'm doing a white theme to go along with the white spoiler and a set of white truggy wheels I have for the track.

The silver part is the Tamiya semi gloss aluminum. Goes on pretty clear then when you back it with black it turns into near chrome. I did another body with the SpazStix chrome paint but some of the backing bled through a bit in spots so it didnt turn out as good as I would like.

I just finished a raptor body that I fit on the truggy and I used the chrome paint for the bumper and it turned out much better... every RV I've ever had I do multiple bodies. I've always liked painting them..
