    Thanks benny, I'm taking it to a BMX track in Albury next week to see if it can fly and landf on it's wheels, lol. I have now fitted losi XXT truggy wheels and a have very good ride height. I've tubbed the wheel arches/cut them out and I had to make a carbon suspension extender for the rear tower due to the pinion and to allow better movement from softer springs. I am making a carbon battery box as I'm sick of snapping velcro on heavy impacts, if your thinking about it, do it. You can follow the lines of the plastic to angle grind the plastic chassis peices allowing the wheels to spin/balloon and turn. For extra strenth I used both the carbon and alluminium upper chassis braces and I will make a alluminium skid plate to protect the under chassis, not that it'll touch the ground, the arms arnt long enough, lol. Proline badlands will be on the order list along with RPM arms as I've broken a few stock arms now in the same weak spot(just above the pin at the diff housing)
    I will update with some new pic's when I get home, I'm on the road now but it looks a lot better with the new mods, the wheels sit outside the body a tad, makes the following pic's look a bit silly.

    No slipper and no center diff driving on dirt should throw some great rooster tails. Cheers to dirt and rocks in your spur gear.

    Thanks, the grass comes through the duct and gets caught on the motor, I'll make up a filter with some outerwares material to cover the entry and still allow airflow. This thing sure does leave a trail with those wheels but I'm yet to have any mesh issues from rock yet, the first time it happens I'll make something to cover the area. I'm in the car on the way to the track for a few days testing with the truggy wheels and a few new mods, I'll beat the snot out of it, get some footage and if it holds up and is worth typing about I'll update.
