how well made are the parts? Did they use a good quality aluminum?

I have a set of "steel" axles for my bomber and its cheap pot metal at best. With that said, its better quality then the factory plastic set.

Nice, thats a good looking body.

On a another note, I picked up some xtra speed beef tubes that are trash but I look forward to your finished build.

That really is a great looking chassis! What did it cost you?

Are the axle internals shared with anything (like Axial) or are they Xtra Speed's own?

240$ plus customs! :P

For what i know this is Axial, but made right! :P

lol
Don't have a clue if they are or not!
It will take a while to build this... to much rc's first to finish and to little time for fun.

But will be finished and used someday!

Thanks!

I own one before , but in the end I sold off. The stock shock is crap , totally cannot work.
Is nice for display only , end up I get the scx 10 II.

Well i still haven't tried it.Can't confirm nothing.

But if stock shocks are crap....there is always a gazillion from aftermarket to choose from...

One thing I like about this truck is the receiver box and the battery tray.
