yeah or neah?

So....how is it?! I'm interested in getting one myself and was wondering what motor/battery type you are using and how the overall performance is.

Took it out last weekend and popped its cherry, I love it. Took it around a local jogging/dog walking park and had heads turning and people just watching in amazement. The tires suck and need to be replaced ASAP and some wheel weights are next after tires. I'm running a hoby people 2200mah 3s 20c with a mamba max pro and 55t axial motor.

Awesome! That's what I wanted to hear. I really love the look of the R1 & plan on making that or the RC4WD Bully my next rc.

I'm running it both front and rear in the sprung position but I'm going to try the rear in to droop position as I hear it is more capable that way. Its shelved for now because I must have missed a driveshaft set screw while going over it with loctite and it spit it out all well $5 later and I'll have some axial pins that go all the way through the output shafts instead of the 2 on each side that only go about 1/4 the way in.

Oh yeah, I'm using the junfac hardened steel shafts.

I was wondering about those double grub screw shafts. Good idea switching to the axial screw shafts with a little bit of blue locktite. The full length pin should be a bid more durable too. Nice rig set up so far, its making me salivate!

Got the axial pins last night, threads fit but the pin itself is larger so I had to drill out the output shafts/pinion shafts a little. I didn't have any metric drill bits but a 7/64 did the trick, the pins measure in at 2.42mm. I used the axial part #AXA0175.
