Actually that would not be a bad idea. I would like to get one of these chassis cut if that is possible. I can pay by Paypal and dont mind waiting a little while. I just got my old Pede back and it is broken sooo guess where the tranny is going. Twisted Evil

also upgraded to RC4WD juggy leafs. steel ones. they wont break i hope.they are stiff though.removing some leafs from them.probably run mono-leaf on front.

Hey

Would you say switching from TLT tires to mudslingers is the same improvement as switching form stock pede tires to Moabs? Or is it not that big of a difference?

i would say there is a difference. kinda like you discribed i guess. they seem to fit better and are about the same height as the tlt tires.they dont drag as bad either. still have to mount the rear new leafs on it.

another thing is the steering is alot easier.that 995 throws these.
