    Some upgrades

    Locked front diff & removed servo. Samix shock towers. Proline 78 Chevy cab with back half cage. Made a hinge for the rear and magnetic mount up front. Glued rock lights to frame rails. On/off via aux 4 on receiver. Added diamond plate. Just waiting on light bar for the front and spot lights for the back cage.

    So far it's lookin good, love the half cab.

    Does removing the diff lock servo from the front do much? I can't see that tiny amount of weight effecting much.
    Jumping: maneuver and pray it won't break.

    Not worried about removing the weight. I never unlock the fronts anyways so I thought Id use the empty receiver slot for my lights. I wired a switch using a old servo so now I can control my lights from my transmitter.

    If I can answer. Mine with the proline dual stage foams are so nice, soft, grippy
    And the foams done overly distort. Night and day difference over stock.

    Hydrax are great on rock. They tend to get mud and dirt stuck in them when trailing. Just a little wheel speed cleans them out. Paired with Crawler Innovations Lil Nova firm inner medium outer in the rear and soft outer in the front works great.

    Also added a bumper light and a little more diamond plate.
