Anyone have a manual that they want to get rid of/sell? I'd like to buy it.

A big thanks to Jonny5. I was looking for some yellow wheels that NO ONE had in stock. He purchased 4 sets and sent them to me on his own time.

A true ambassador to the sport.

Thanks again.

Looking for a bit more steering any thoughts or hints. Don't really want to add weight at front

Thinking shock oils

I am no guru on setups, but if you need more on power steering reduce droop.
Less caster or looser diff too.

I was able to mount the bulldog body on mine, but it didn't fit right (like the finisher above) and didn't look all that good.

Notice the extra height of the body and the nose of the body is further back than it should be. That darn rear shock tower....

Not the DEX, but the DESC and the ST are the same.

yeah was just curious, im not a fan of the whole cab-forward thing, so the stock body will have to do!

Whats wrong with the stock body? I think it looks great!

The ONLY thing I did not like about the stock body is the window masks for painting seem to be masking tape. At least Jconcepts uses a nice translucent film that leaves a really clean line and stays down during painting.

Stock body is decent. Shock tower limits options on other bodies though. I like a cab forward design personally, but I am not sure we will be seeing any aftermarket bodies...

Well I bought a new body in hopes of making it work. The first one was badly chopped in the front to make the body posts work.

So here how it sits right now. Rear holes are lined up perfectly



But here is how the front ones look like



I m moving the front body post back and forth numerous times, trying various positions but it doesnt sit well. Any ideas?
