I hope I don't run into issues. I did reduce travel on the rear shocks and used tons of AW grease in the diff. We'll see.

You probably eat those, considering your username.


Looking forward to pics of the Blackfoot, and more bug frenzy.

Congrats man! I was going to start the build today, but having just finished the Beetle, I started my DB-01RRR yesterday just to break up the monotony of repeat chassis build. Will get her built this upcoming week. Post a pic of your's on here if you can.
