You will need to change the video setting from private to public before people can view it.

So all in all after running the p401 I would say it's capable. It's not perfect out of the box but I haven't seen a rtr that was. Since my run I have removed the 2.8s on it and replaced with axial ripsaws. They are about half as wide as the stock ones.should allow a bit more suspension travel without rubbing the body or snagging the bumper. And im working on a Panhard setup for the front. It loses a bit of steering to front end shift. But it showed it could get around just fine.

Well I'm hoping to get the 401 out this weekend. I did remove the huge rtr tires and downsized to axial ripsaws. Like to try it out. I think it'll cover the fender and bumper rib
