Only problem is that a tiny 2mm circlip got bent and I do not have a replacement. Seems like it was made out of tin foil! So I gotta find some, maybe at the hobby shop. Unless I can bum one from one of you guys.

I also added some bling, a set of blue anodized shocks that are oil filled instead of the stock spring only shocks.
Oh hek yea I remember that cool little truck..It ran for ever good and fast..I was really impressed with that Ironman Truck...I will look threw my tool boxes and if not I will see what Robins or Raceprepp has....Blue looks good....

Hey Prop'er, turns out the e-clip needed is only a 1.5mm! Sheesh, that is tiny. Luckily, it is a common hobby item. Associated, Duratrax, and others have them listed.
