I have a piece of lexan I am going to put on to keep dirt out. I really does not need any more bracing. The alum angle is more than enough. Actually I may just come off of the angle and make a battery hold down to place the under the chassis. I am waiting till I have some more funds to figure out which lipo I want to get for fitment.

As for the arms, I had to do quite a bit of grinding. It was not that much $$ to do, I got the stuff off og ebay. I used the stock axles, but they are about too short. There is some custom parts I had to make. I had to make a spacer so I could use the stock axles with the Jato hubs,since I wanted the bearings. I made up some suspention limiters so the down travel would not pop out the axles.

Here are a couple more pics




I had to grind some off of the Jato axles back to make it fit, but they are too short.

Well the front shock tower decintigrated !!! but the shocks and turnbuckles are ok..... the 2 front tires are crumbled ,,well one was the other was cracked and both tires were chewed in half .... The sport tuned pipe was flat!!!
And the fuel tank got a hole in it !!! nothing was touched from 3/4 all the way back meaning my steering servo is fine !!! All in ALL I just witnessed an over all durability test (not the way I would like too) and the chasis bulkhead and all that heald up great .. I just lost control of it and it started doing donuts on the street and couldnt stop the guy in time!!! So pits for me !!! Got lucky though kinda... Not to much damage.. Plus I can get that AD2 pipe on it..
