yea that's the big problem with the body over the wheels the whole truck collects dirt like a dump truck.
In fact its so bad i refuse to drive the thing when the ground is anything but bone dry.
Ive been pondering a way to make wheel wells like the full size corr trucks have.

Just installed the little aftermarket cover that goes over the pre-filter. Makes a big difference. Also, installed the sway bar kit which makes this truck handle 100% better in dirt and on street.

I've been looking for one but not enough people here to make a class. Well that didn't stop me from buying a sc8 either. Oh well. Opening day at the track here for 1/8 stuff and they will be racing 10th scale and stock slash 2 weeks from today alternating each week.

They are the ones off ebay...they are GREAT! 1000 times better than stockers. I used a soft spring up front and a stiffer one in the back. I've been launching my slayer lately and I gotta say, this thing takes off. Only thing that has happend is the engine got knocked loose and pulled away from the spur gear. 5 mins later I had it back and running. Anyone put in the smaller spur gear yet for more torque? I'm thinking about it since this baby is allready too fast.

Love it!!! I found a fix to the terrible axle problem. I bought a set of new ones and used heat shrink to wrap the pins. Supper secure now...no problems. Looks clean too!!
