    I have not yet touched the electronics since the car is pretty fast on 6s. But i am planning on a modification to the plastic chassis where i will enlarge the battery compartment to fit 2- 4s batteries after i upgrade the motor and ESC and servo.

    I am now designing a steel roll cage. I will post photos of that too as soon as i have something decent to show lol!

    wow, first time seeing those RPM shocks.
    Do you have a part number for those?

    I dont remember the part number but they are available in alliexpress. They have harder springs and if your car is not heavy you better use the OEM springs. Mine weighs 8.1 kilos batteries included and they are still too stiff even without any pre load. After i finish the steel roll cage i think they will work fine. They are good for jumping though!

    GPM is the parts he used, not RPM. I have some of those same parts from alliexpress.

    I just finished painting my Monster Energy themed new lexan body. I think it turned out really nice. I tried to give it a marble splash like effect on all three colors. It is not finished yet as i am still trying to find some silver colored MonsterEnergy stickers that will make the paintjob really stand out.

    today i finished my custom led light bar. For the casing i used a [ shaped aluminum bar, some aluminum flat bar that was laying around and a couple of screws. For the lights i used the inners of a led light torch. It had three rows of lights all soldered on a pcb which i cut with a dremel tool and reshaped the positive poles so i could only run 2 rows. I cut the reflector to match the casing, added a switch and a small resistor which i salvaged from the torch and the whole system is powered by a 18650 2600mah battery. The sides i made from some pla off cuts from a 3d print. I must say that it is very bright! I tested it in dark room and after, drove the car on a dark parking lot and it looks really nice but it is quite blinding when the car faces you lol. Since i had most parts laying around i guess the total cost was about 2,5 dollars...
