If I may offer one comment, in this latest set of pics your steering linkage looks bright powdery white on my screen, I think it stands out a bit more than would be scale-realistic. Aside from that this is an awesome build, rest assured that when we get the new GSR site up this will be the featured ride!
Thanks Brian! Looking at the previous pics, the steering link does stand out a bit, so I did some weathering on it. Should be a little more realistic now.


Update: JR Sport Hi-Speed sub micro servo!



Pic below shows the stock JR servo on left and modified LMC servo.



Had to take almost the whole truck apart just to swap a servo.



With the new servo installed, much smaller!



Still got the massive flex for its scale.





Also did some weathering on the steering link.

Update: Took it to Central Park again, will post up the video of it tomorrow, unfortunately the camera battery die out, so I didn't get that much footage of it crawling.

Thanks herman!


Update: After testing out many methods on mounting the canopy top, finally came up with one method that is simple and works well.
