Ok,
my LST2 shocks came in after a 2 1/2 month wait. I installed them but I am not too shure if thats how they go but seems to work, but I havent road tested yet. I still need XL wheel axels, lets hope they are in next week.

This is how the build is looking so far, weighs in at 15.1lbs as seen.

Wow, I think I will have to copy what you did with the white marker, that looks excellent. And sending an LRP 32 to ERCM would be nuts. That's what I would do if I had the funds.

good choice on picking on the Trenchers, great for onroad, good on grass, okay on dirt/gravel. I myself got the Trencher X's.

K.. so I took her out yesterday and it was running a little slugish but ready for tuning. Had some good fun for a couple of hrs, during a speed run out of nowhere the truck locks ups and the kit goes cartwheeling down the road at 30kmh hits an 8" curb recoils off of a tree and disapears in my neighbours yard... Great, she just loves my savy, she wants to play baseball with it or play bumper cars with her chev and she is known around these parts as (crazzy plant laddy) and many stories this summer will include her like every other year. Today she was gone when it happened so it was an easy retreaval, i grabed my kit and started her up first pull she knows she is in enimy teritory and wants to bug-out. On the way out i tore up the soggy grass to let her know i stoped in to say hi and planed a drive-by of her precious garden... ... it did not go as planed, the kit locked up again did another cartweel but recovered just in time for the fr,L steering arm went and the savy pulled left into the garden, she had tones of bamboo here and there and it created a sanario i call (the savy pinball affect) smashing into everything tearing all the small plants to bits and peices, wondering why i had no control i relized the transmiter got turened off at some point... weird because it on the on possition. upon the second recovery i started her up on the third pull but drove off looking like it had a seisure but manage to send it off in my other neighbours property so i may use the u.s. gov tactic of plosible deniability... Turns out the sudden lock ups whas my front diff giving out and the steering arms are kaput...lol

Untill my next adventure T.T.F.N.

Ya I felt bad to. When she got home I told her what happened and she was pised but became happy as *censored* when she asked if it broke and I told her yes. I cleaned up her garden and took care of my mess   8)
