To those of you that already build the truck, would it be too hard to glue somekind of receiver box next to the servo? I know theres room between the servo and motor mount if not possible
Thinking of something like this:

I don't think it would be hard at all. Depends on the size. You can also mount the box to the side of he servo mount. All depends on how big your stuff is.

Overall it went together very well. I posted some build notes a few posts up. I don't think any of the screws are an issue - I had one screw strip on the servo mount that was my fault.

I did get the small shock bottoms - those took some effort and I hacked them up pretty good, but as long as they work until my next shock rebuild that's fine.

Other tips - plan out your wire routing carefully. I ended up shrink tubing up my servo and transponder wires and then zip tying them to the mud guards. I reamed two holes in the sides of the mud guards to anchor the zip ties.

I wouldnt say they are a problem just something to be cautious of. Fit and finish for the most part is beautiful.

That you do try!!! And try well!!!

It's not as much a "problem" as it is an issue being experienced by newbies (first time kit builders). Thus it can come from anything as simple as using Allen wrenches instead of hex drivers, not having the proper sized hex driver (standard instead of metric), not taking the time to pre-thread thread most fittings to ease assembly, to not being patient and trying to rush assembly.
Experienced builders aren't really having any problems.

Otherwise, read the last few most recent pages as most thongs have been covered at least twice already. Have fun!

Default Wiring

One thing of note when running wires, please keep in mind the way we milled the chassis, it leaves room to oute your ESC to rec wire directly under the servo so it stays nice and neat and out of the way.

Thought I'd try to lighten the mood a bit and share a story; it's FRIDAY after all people! lol Coming home from a long day at work last night and spot a UPS truck in front of my house. Could it be? Maybe my 2.0 parts are here.....???oh man this will be great....

BUT no it was something for the wife. (Trying to keep hope alive here). I didn't think it affected me much but ended up having a dream of racing to get the last kit in front of a cornucopia (like in Hunger Games ), I got it!, get home and its a friggin empty box!!!

I guess you can say I'm *really* anxious to get my parts lol. Funny how dreams manifest from your reality. I'm super envious of your guys with the kits. Keep up with the feedback and have a great day!

This is the 2nd time the newbie comment has come up. While this is likely true in some cases I have built well over 15-20 kits from 10th-8th scale. I use quality tools, the right size tools whether metric or standard, and take my time. The diff screws or holes in the diff case are an issue in my opinion regardless of skill level. 2 out of my 3 diffs had issues. I needed screws to replace the stripped ones, hobby shop didn't have them so I was forced to buy two complete TLR332001 hd diff assemblies just for the screws.

You shop doesnt carry part LOSB3591? Should ask them to but I would also contact CS and they can send you the screws.
