You should have seen the auction for the one halfway completed. I went up to 370 bucks and said fuck it. Just getting this to the point of that auction is gonna be a lil bit more expensive than that but I can build it up slowly. The running gear is gonna be a Wraith kit.

I just ordered both sets (long and short w/b) of aluminum linkage from the Honcho. Whatever doesn't work for this is going on a different crawler.

I liked it, plays like absolute shit but I didn't buy it for play-ability.

More importantly I have my shocks!

I'm gonna try and go water proof with it so I can do all the cool stuff I see in the crawler vids.

When the body is finished you'll see why I did it.

I had enough time to get a functioning chassis done. It's just loosely thrown together and I still have to get the Pitbull 1.9's on but it's getting there.
