Well she's gonna be soft like tha with the shocks layed out like that sh when you get the revo shocks I think it will cure that problem.

Other than that she looks awsome mike exellent work yet again.

I hope so. Tuner was telling me today that he is thinking on converting his Rush into brushless from NItro. That would be interesting. Thanks for the support brother.

Finally some updates!!!!!!!!!!

Well I got her together enough to go out dial her in and set her up. She turns on a dime and corners very smoothly, while sucking to the ground. Hoped her off a few curbs, and a bumped her in the air off a couple little dirt mounds. Lands fine and does not bottom out real hard at all. I still need to try and get a set of matching 2.2 rims for 12 mm hubs, a 16 or 18 tooth 48 pitch pinion, a different ESC and a bigger battery. The ESC, I think it has a short in it. The car will run fine for a while, then all of a sudden out of nowhere it stops for a second or so. Then it takes back off. The receiver, steering servo and battery all work fine in other applications. The Kyosho 12x2 motor still has a bunch of meat on the brushes, so I am thinking I will need a different ESC. Let me know what you guys think, I am always open for constructive critisism. I am like a sponge, throw your knowledge to me and I will try to soak up all that I can. Enjoy the shots

No funds right now for the battery brother. Better sell that schtuff to someone else. Good lookin out though, I really appreciate the offer.

looks good so far mike and is that a msc if so that's prolly y the whole thing blows well that and you goota change them pos tamiya plugs out for some deans you'll also notice your car go faster if you do. but rly diff esc motor and batt and maybe a servo and you'll be set to go for a while.

well about time for a little update here guys. I got a different motor and ESC. Got them hooked up as well as a bigger battery. Got rid of the POS Tamiya and installed some Deans Plugs on the ESC, Battery and motor. I guess if there are any questions or comments, I will hear about it soon enough. I am hoping to go out and test this thing tomorrow, if time allows. I will have to get some pictures and more detailed info up as well this weekend. Hope you all are having a great day, and thanks for the interest.

well she handles great. Working out a few little bugs when I have the chacne. Rebuilt the front and rear diffs and got the Pede shafts installed. She runs great and turns on a dime.

I will be getting some comparison shots for you guys really soon. I have a Lamborghini Murcielago body that is getting painted Orange with a CF hood and rear wing comins soon. Once I get it mounted I will post up a picture of the finished project.

Well sorry for the delay in getting these pictures in guys. But here are some comparison pics of a Nitro 4 Tec to the modded 4x4 Tec. I have done a few other things to it since these pictures. Will try to get those pics posted soon. Hopefully here in a while, I can get the lid for it painted and show you all the finished product. It has been a really fun build as well as a great learning experience.

Looking at it I'm thinking you might want to make some kind of cover for the rear belts if you plan on running any dirt.
Man I'm telling you if you ever plan on selling it I better be first in line cheesygrin
