Default HPI Wheelie King Crawler Conversion

I have been looking at crawlers for awhile and decided to go with an HPI Wheelie King and go through the conversion route to make it into a crawler. Has anyone else come up with a few tricks to make the truck more effective? I'll post pics ASAP!

You could get creative and make the links and chassis yourself. The links are 4/40 all thread covered with plastic ink pens cutu to fit, the chassis is a plastic cutting board. I basically traced the stock chassis but I cut off the lower section for more ground clearance.

I did use the crawler conversion from R/c Car, the exception for me was I left the servo in the rear of the truck so it helps to maintain the "scale" look. It crawls great, I need to get some softer springs though for the front. If anyone knows the softest available let me know! Ill get some pics soon.
