    no i had to admit dafeat the first attempt at the chassis and had Erin (Highlandcrawler) make the chassis for me! I just told him to do something different than an scx10 chassis and i told him to just do something know one else has had or seen before! Tell you what im glad i told him that because i really love this thing and im sure theres ganna be alot of head turning at axialfest at me this year!! Erin did a DAMN GOOD JOB on this thing!!!

    Highlandcrawler's work is really nice. About a year or so ago he was selling some of his rigs and I'm still kicking myself that I didn't have the cash at the time.

    I was looking at your brushless motor and ESC combo and was wondering who "Cheetah" was when I noticed the website SkyRC.com. They have some interesting stuff. I found their AA/AAA Bluetooth battery charger interesting:

    Did you buy your Brushless motor and ESC directly from them, of from a dealer?

    I bought it from a dealer! I bought that one and a speed passion motorr esc combo from rcmart.com!! payed almost 130 for both with shipping!!
    an amazing deal! Ive had a cheatah non sensored system in a different rc it was a 4700kv and damn that thing was fast as hell and never had any issues with it so i thought way not do it again!!

    I found bought these combo's from http://www.rcmart.com/ i got both setups for $140 shipped!! which is a smoking deal and the sensored system if you add 10* of timing you get a turbo mode if you hold full throttle for more than 5 seconds!! I will post a video if i can later on it!!

    Sounds like you like that power system. Is it torque or fast?

    The brushless system i got for it i was taking a chance but it has tons of low end torque and when i shift into second i have all the wheel speed i could ever want it will balloon the tires in second gear!! Im changing alot of stuff around because i found some issues with the truck i need to address!! Im getting to much body rub so i changed out to wraith axles also im really top heavy so i got some scx10 stock shocks and now i gotta get some new links made because the old ones are rubbing on drive shafts!!

    Sounds like you're going to have a rock racer.
