    Nice ride man. I do like the looks of that bumper. I ended up getting the rpm bumper for now. It seems to be holding up better then the traxxas slash one. Especially since my son wanted
    To play chicken without me knowing and smash head on collision me at full speed and him I'd say half to 3/4 full. I'll prob get a T bone down the road

    Thanks bro! Rpm is awesome also. Minimal but great protection. My son has had both slash and rpm and rpm is the way to go.

    Well after 3 days of trying to find how to mount and low enough my new raptor body before painting. It's finally done. I just need shorter shocks. In the back the ones on now are too long causing the bones to pop out. But here's the body





    I did forget to put the window film on the side windows. That's first time I did the blue grey black style paint. It came ok guess each coat didn't dry much like I thought it did


    Oops I thought I posted this. Instead of 2 same pics

    Thanks bro. I am loving this truck. I got a few minor parts to replace (shocks again) but it's ok. After that I think it'll be complete with all and everything I want on it

    Ok shocks will be here today. I ended up getting some gtr. I'm trying to figure oh the numbers of stiffness actually mean. Ex 1.6, 2.3 so on. Awhile back I got a set if integy springs red black and orange. Orange to still for my truck. I would think the black ones would be good they are medium they are on my sons sl4sh. And seem alittle stiff for it, the red are softer and they are on my other sons p4de. Those seem to be the best bit his is all stock Since my truck is heavier then both of there's. I can't find anywhere on what this springs are rated for. Even on the package it doesn't say. Would anyone know the answer to the ratings of red black and orange set springs compared to gtr springs.
    Thanks in advance

    Well shocks are finally on the truck. But will taking them off only to change the springs. Ones now are way too stiff. I'm gonna have my lhs order some softer ones since he didn't have any in stock. So a recap on things that's in the truck since I've changed a lot of it
    Here goes

    Raptor body and c10 body
    Dyed black chaise
    The following is Xo-1
    Alum Steer knuckles
    Alum rear hubs
    Alum front caster
    Xo-1 tekno hybrid drive shafts all around
    Alum front and rear shock towers
    17 mm adapters
    Front and rear diffs
    Gtr blue shocks all around summit/jato/xo-1 5460a

    Protrac arms all around
    Tekno center big bone
    Alum bearing adapter
    KH motor mount
    Revo slipper clutch
    2.8 trenchers mounted on 3.2 revolvers
    Rpm front and rear bumpers
    Sway bars front and rear
    Hobbywing sc8 with a 2650kv motor overseas running 15/50, 16/50 and 21/50 Works pretty good btw
    Well I think that's all I've done and prob gonna do. Maybe next yr ill do 2200kv or 2400 kv. I dunno yet

    And I want to thank all those that's helped me through this build. On what works good and what doesn't. Hmmm maybe I'll start working on my sons trucks now hahaha

    Thanks man. That sucks your parts are still back ordered. I am having a little issue with the shocks though. I thought it was cause I was using 50wt oil in them but even with 30wt oil they do the same thing. So I've changed rebuild both stock and traxxas big bore shocks before. And after I've filled, bled those shocks I'd test them simply by pushing piston in and letting it rebound itself. Depending on wt is in it either out fast or slow. But always comes out all the way or over 3/4. These shocks I'll fill, bleed and test they only come out 1/4 inch. Like I said doesn't matter 50 or 30wt oil. Sooo I'm wondering if that's how these are or if the holes or way to small. They are the biggest holes that comes with the shocks. And there's kit out there I think has the same concept as the rpm shocks 2 holes to 4 holes it's tra5461. I'm thinking this is what I need but if anyone that uses the gtr shocks have or had same problems and knows why they do what mine are doing I would like to hear some comments about them thanks

    i wouldnt go with a 2200 unless for some reason you wanted to run 6s, which i wouldnt do unless its for speed runs only. that 2650 on 4s would be a beast.

    I must say jconcepts bodies aren't as strong as proline's. Finally made a ramp for the house and body has extra holes in the back, rear fender bent out I was able to put fender back in place though.

    And a small crack. Might have to make ramp wider and get a proline body. That or make my own. I seen someone do it on YouTube just use thicker plastic hahaha
