Very cool build. I saw the video for your 6s build in the Mean Truck thread, also a cool build. I'm not much for 2wd but they're both awesome, the 6s build is especially nutty. It looks like it could use some thicker fluid or another way to tighten the diff. The truck bounces side to side because it's unloading and ballooning one tire more than the other. The truck is so nutty it's still going to be a real handful but tightening up the rear diff should make it a little easier to control. Very cool builds.

Both car are up and running. Durango DESC210 suspension on all 4 corner incl bigbore shocks. Durango CVD are cut, and extended 3mm and rewelded by my friend. The trucks are mindblowing to drive, the handling is awsome
