Hey Boys, I got this Axial kit back when they first came out. Well I finally got around to building it. This will be my 2.2 comp rig for 2008. It is pretty much stock. Only exception is some repositioned links and what not. I can wait to run it.

Thanks guys, Still have a few things on the way. I have a set of aluminum knuckles coming. The stock plastic ones look pretty weak. I also have a set of the aluminum top link mounts. With the stock plastic one the ball pops right out under load.

I am thinking about going lipo. But after Renes fires I am not sure. Maybe an on board fire bottle is needed. Anyhow I need a battery. And she will be ready to go. I hope to be at the first comp. If work doesn't blow up and get busy.

Did you bend the links or buy the bent ones?

Any plan for a dig set up?

I bent the stock links myself. They actually bent pretty easy. If I have time I might make a dig setup. It will also depend on how many times I get to run it. I may only get to compete with it a few times this summer. We shall see.

Me to Bro, I liked your Losi body better than mine. Looking at it kind of makes me want a beer.

He is calling it the silver bullet. So you understand where the beer reference comes from. It is simple , but the colors go together great. Hopefully he will post some pics.

No that is the Ghetto Graphite look Nick. I used the toolbox drawer liner trick. Spray a little silver over the mat. Then black it out. It was a quicky paint job.

Just a cheap brake tubing bender. They are pretty soft aluminum. So they bend pretty easy.
