    so for parts, here goes...
    1. Shining Star v2.5f chassis. seriously love it.
    2. Mamba X / 2650kv sensored running 4s
    3. HR Double up clutch, with 1 set Long aluminum pad, and 1 set short makes for a near complete circle around the clutch. love it!
    4. Tekno Big Bone Center shaft
    5. XO-1 Diffs from Jenny's
    6. XO-1 Diff housings from GPM. it was not easy finding an aluminum diff housing. but GPM, and Integy make them
    7. XO-1 Shock Towers from GPM. they have an extra shock-mounting hole which give me some extra ride height.
    8. XO-1 shocks with revo springs
    9. FLM arms
    10. XO-1 axles
    11. front XO-1 hubs from traxxas (soon to be switched to red GPM hubs)
    12. XO-1 Rear Hubs from GPM
    13. SP Racing tires from DeltaPlatic. seem to grip better than my GRP's
    14. XO-1 front and rear splitters. i had to dremel them a bit to make them work, but they fit really nice.
    15. Aluminum steering bellcrank. i think STRC...
    16. Custom Duff Beer Paint guaranteed to add 3mph.

    i think that's pretty much it. i have been putting down laps at a local track, and hope to get into some racing soon.

    also coming soon will be some Gold Plated screws. because 'Merica!
    cheers

    A perk of being a graphic designer at a sign shop is i can sneak all sorts of stickers through. next print run i am going to try reverse-print on clear using white ink, so i can apply them to the inside of the body. i drive upside down alot. i heard it makes it go faster.

    Thanks for taking the time to post!

    I just picked up my first Slash 4X4 (I’ve got a 2wd slash and a couple 4tecs etc) and am looking to do something similar to what you’ve got. Likely a street truck theme though
