      finally able to get started on this build, ive been wanting to do this for along time. I believe ive done enough research and download enough pictures to get start
      like all my builds it wil be r/c with a working arm . ive scale this out to be a 1/10 which is really big, somt times I think I take in to much fumes . lol
      ive measured this out to be around 790mm, tires are 126mm using 2.2 rims
      theres going to be a lot of 3 steps forward and many steps back . im going in 1/2 blind on this and don't know what walls I will be hitting. im assuming around 400 hours ,
      so this will be great winter coming build . well enjoy the movie and lets get started

      ive cut the frame rail, I some what know where the axles go, I need to make the lower hull 1st. ive started by intergrading the rails in the hull, starting from the front

    time to work on the rear suspension, 1st I drilled and tapped some holes in the yota axles, ive added a ball end

    next ive add the ball ends to the belly and added 2x links, this will keep the axle leveled

    next Ive added a cross stabilizer

    drive shafts installed and a glimpse at it with tires on it

    It amazes me how quickly you build and yet you still come out with a great looking product. I am slower then molasses in December, but the bottom line is that we enjoy what we are doing.
