Hi everyone,

I threw this together last night. Thought you all might get a kick out of it.

Hey, it looks good. Will it make you stay on the track:)

Highly unlikely, but my constant explorations into uncharted territory might look a little cooler. It still has the Atomic 11mm +3 offset dish wheels on all 4 corners, but the wheelbase is shorter, so who knows what it will do for handling. We'll mess with it tonight and see how it does.

Good to see someone put it to good use ! :D

By the way, did that board ever get going for you ?

Oh, also... here's a little trick... those leftover MR02 kingpin spring seats fit nicely inside the shock housing once you trim off the flange, it lowers the truck and also gives you some adjustability by backing off the screws inside the shocks. (eyeball the tires so they are level)

I'll have to try that out.

The board works awesome. I have a little trouble now keeping the battery wires in contact with the chassis. Those little teeny tiny screws seem to never be tight enough. The car will just die, I'll tighten the screws, and then it's fine again. I'll probably just replace the chassis.

Yeah this body is great. I beat it up a bit on my racers, and then thought it would look great as an OL. I raced it around a bit last night and think it might be my new OL racer. It has almost no traction roll.

Also, I love those custom H/T plates you gave me. They are so soft they drop the butt of my Murci so it's almost rubbing. The car handles great too.

Thanks again!
