    I've used white lithium before as well, I just bought a tub of the red stuff last time, I'm not 100% certain but I believe white lithium is what Traxxas recommends.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your finished product.
    Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.

    Orders some Duratrax Pickets. I also liked the Trenchers but wanted to try these and something different.

    Wow! Awesome Build! That is a really clean build you got going on right now. I really like the green too. Perfect timing too. I'm getting ready for my own slash build and this is perfect inspiration. Hope you don't mind if I copy a little off of your build.
    And sweet tires. I recently bought some Duratrax tires and I really enjoy them.
    Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Yeah, the Duratrax Tires look awesome and come on super cool rims.

    But as for mine, I haven't planned it too much. So far, I just have plans of the doing like caster blocks, a-arms, chassis, and a brushless system. Plus, I don't exactly know what a Flux Compacitor? As far as research has shown, its something from back to the future. lol.
    All I know for mine is I'm looking for a rally/off road look. So like a Pickup body with some rally type tires. Its going to be an interesting build..

    Thanks will do. The servo is the upgraded 2075 and I have the STRC steering parts. I will have to look at the 4x4 parts.

    I got what your saying. Dang it I wish I would have known the Bellcrank 4x4 setup worked on 2wd. Oh well Iíll replace it after I get her running. Being I spent money on the aluminum setup and added Avis bearings it will work for now. Thanks for the heads up!

    The metal gear 2075? If so then get a stronger servo mounted saver and your set it will work just fine. If its the plastic gear servo stay with the weaker saver to protect the servo gears.

    Aqualungs Slash build

    Itís been a while, but I started working on the project again. I cut out the Pro line Bronco body. It looks like Iím going to have to cut the body to get the bumper and rear bumper to fit. Thereís about an inch clearance until it hits the mounting posts. I tried to look up another thread, but could only find a few, and saw they cut about and inch into the body where the front a rear bumpers come in contact. Once I do that it seems like Iím gonna have to cut around the tire wheel wells especially in the front. Any help would be awesome

    Iím also debating on selling this roller. I really donít have the money right now, so either itís gonna shouldnít sit on the shelf for a bit, until I can afford the motor/esc combo. Or I may put it up for sale. A lot of medical bills this year..

    The color is a little darker in person. Just have to do the hardtop black. Finish with a bed line then tint the windows. Then comes my favorite part.. lifting off the plastic and stickers!

    I run them in both my 2wd Slash rigs; just something to consider as there are many options for the truck.

    The 2400kv Castle is the same diameter as the stock motor ( maybe slightly wider with the fins) but a bit longer.
    Here's a picture of an older nonsensored motor with the rpm motor gaurd, I believe all the new ones are sensored but should still be the same dimensions
    Just my .02Ę.

    Hey Billy, itís been a while since we talked motor and esc. Iím looking at the Castle Creations you recommended or a Hobbywing equivalent. I have a 2S battery and would like to get a 4S battery. This truck will stay on pavement for a while.
    Might pick up a set of Duratrax Banditos too.
