I'm having a hell of time trying to post some pictures of the mods ive done to strengthen the front and rear a bit.

Any tips on what I'm doing wrong , or is the moderator of the thread controlling the admittance of photos ????

I know I can attach a photo, but thats lame in most cases !!!

Default A few mods that I needed to do

Seen to many of these break at our track so I had an
aluminum made up. Weight is not an issue with me at this point.



Utilized the aluminum front shock mounts I saved from my veteq and they work great for the porsche type bodies and i can leave the bumper in. By adding the spacers (which are the tool that came in the 705 kits for the rear upper a arm ball installation) I can use my regular stratus bodies.

Default Garage Shot

Had to throw a couple garage shots up and I almost forgot that I doubled up the rear shock tower mount by gluing them together and then bolting them together with an unused shock hole.
3 of them have broken at our local track the last few weeks , and they were not that spectacular of crashes.

put on a trick little fuel tank lid thumb peice and a few other minor mods like the spring steel drive axles etc.. if anyone wants some photos let me know !!!

Outdrive part.
I notice that while using hard diff setting.
And the dogbones pin is worn either.

Thanks for sharing the pics JABRONI !

I actually do not understand that part about the Veteq aluminum front shock mounts you've referred to. Did you mean the front aluminum body post?

Also, how do you mount the aluminum spacers to mount regular Stratus bodies?
