Bulldog looks alright. BTW what tires are those and what surface do you run? Thanks,

Yeah, better than the finisher
Although, I'd still prefer a regular non-cab forward body.

Those are worn red losi ifmar studs, silver losi ribs front. Loose outdoor hardpack. Run on wet, sticky dirt (with river clay mix I think). Gotta scrape through the top to hit the hardpack. Rarely gets clean enough to form bluegroove. Closely packed pins like calibres gunk up within a lap. After a race or two (or if the track is cleaner) I switch to ifmar pins, then to aka impacts. I run crowbars on the front in 4wd.

I've been putting these underneath my lipos lately. Serpent p/n 600479. foam pads. If I want it thicker or only want strips the xray xb4 strips are nice and thick.

Here's Her Wiring Ugliness: mine - then again, try to fit stick + old-gen controller with MM without making a mess. Although, granted, it could have been better... one day, maybe, I can wire a car properly

Hey, at least, it fits, which wasn't granted from the start...

That is correct....I need to shorten my kyosho a little bit more and round it off and it will be perfect. I am making another set up with the k strap, gm post, and gm screws to sell.

It is so easy to do. I added a 2mm gm washer under each post per Brandon and it is perfect.
