1-LOSA4437 Chassis Guard Set
optional
1-LOSA9155 Quick Change motor Mount (a must)

Well I ran my first tank today. Handled pretty good. I need some oil changes I think.
One modification, where the skid plate mounts between chassis and diff case is not going to work. First double I took I nosed onto the front bumper and it pulled out. I cut off the entire part that goes between the chassis, Put on the stock buggy bumper and screwed the skid plate int the buggy bumper. This isn't going anywhere.

Here is the finished truck.

Sorry the A-arms are from the 8T truggy. Someone gave me the shock adaptors so I didn't need to buy the part and dont have the part number.
Sorry on the video also. New Years Eve was a little too festive and the next day I washed my good camera in the jeans pocket I was wearing. Total loss.

You should put the SC8 roll cage on it, because I think its the only reason my body on my SC8 has lasted as long has it has.

Nobody here is running the roll cage so I figured I would save the expense. The local dirt oval wants us to come out Friday night and run the oval. I thought that might be cool. They are across from Tampa Stadium and are having a Super Bowl weekend at the track. I thought it might give it some exposure. He has an unused track he used to use for monster truck events and is talking about making a true short course for these and slash trucks.

The roll cage is only $36.00, that's pretty cheap considering it save's your body.
Just my 2 cents
