While I'm waiting for a replacement idler gear i decided to mess about a bit with my OL :)

I increased the stroke of the shocks, not the normal way using the rubber tube etc. but by extending up the threaded hole in the ball cup :) seems to have helped a fair bit.

Changed the bumper a little, to me its alot more pleasing to look at, still needs a gloss coat and polishing.

Description of the images:

Not sure what the max attachment size is, will see if this works...

Very nice "stock" OL, mine started out that way too, but then I got bit by the bug and the rest is history...........after a lot of time and considerable amount of money, my OL is now about as bullet proof as they can get, the only stock parts left are the chassis and diff

i like to think of it as super stock

like the super stock clods i used to build

what i find fun about the car/truck parts of the rc hobby is making parts myself, or modding the stock parts, imo far more fun than throwing money at it :)

at least, thats what i'm sticking too till i have enough spare cash to throw at it ;)

Not that i dont like your truck, i do. very shiney, and gotta be real strong. Great body, But how much is you handywork?

Anyway, thanks :)
