Default My street bashing project.

I decided to build a car for playing in the street this summer. I'm not going to drive my race car in the street. I forgot how fun it was to tear up the streets and I wanted something fast! I chose a XXX-S because of the enclosed drivetrain and low maintenance. I got a good price through Storrmer Hobbies, $189 plus a free 3000 stick pack. Great deal. I'm almost finished with it. I wired up my GTB and a 4.5 brushless motor. This thing sounds like a turbine and I think I'm going to be scared to drive it. It's sounds scary fast! I forgot to glue the tires down and they all flew off. Anyway...I'm looking forward to a test drive when the roads clear up. Here are a few pics of my street basher.

Default Thanks guys.

Yea, I noticed my rear link locations were off after I posted the pics. I figured the my fellow RCers would be all over it.
