Looks pretty sweet! Where did you get the extended TVPs and battery boxes?

Finally got the lower skid done, very time consuming but I think it turned out good. This was it with just stock skid



After cutting and fitting









Every screw through center goes through a piece of 1/8" Kydex above skids with locknut

A Leopard 4092 1480kv is very comparable to a 1717 at much lower cost. Now if you have the room and budget for 1717 then it's the better motor. If not use the Leopard

thanks, really considering the 1717 but thinking twice because it's no longer in production if my info is correct.

It's no longer produced under castle, the traxxas version is still made and in fact I just got one replaced thru traxxas. Great motors, I use it in my xxl 2.

how much did you extend the chassis over stock? Do the stock center driveshafts still work?

Close to 3" and no, both center driveshafts get replaced with the same 80 mm slider shafts that's on all four corners to the wheels. Stock Nero has 3 different size shafts, after this they have one size shaft for whole truck

Slow progress due to surgery on my ankle but was able to play around today

Ok lots of pics but it's making a transformation. Nice extended 24mm hexes from Mikey















And I had to try these
