    Here's my build so far. I started with a used .21 or .25 not too sure but she's a whole lot better now! I have before and after pics. This is what I've done so far.

    - IRC 6mm front and 1 inch back lcg kit.
    - flux big bore shocks(temporary)
    - hitec 7955 steering servo
    - vanquish aluminum servo horn
    - aluminum bulkhead's
    - roto start system
    - 3 speed transmission (on way)
    - silicone exhaust deflector
    - shock towers and skid plates fr and bck
    - went back to stock throttle and brake linkage
    - on/off switch
    - switched from junk 20% nitro to O'Donnell 30% race blend.
    - 3rd gear upgrade (on way)
    - bellcrank and servo saver
    - dual fiberglass disc brakes.
    - fs-gt3c tx with fs-gr3e receiver

    The truck had quite a few things already done to it. I just put my own twist on it. it had the k5.9 in it with 18mm offset for the tires so it was quite a bit wider already. Had a Robinsons racing cb and 3rd gen spur gear. I'm trying to figure out what set of shocks I'm going to go with... I love the look of the lst ones but I don't really think it's needed. I switched to the flux big bores and man I think those are amazing compared to the bent ones I had. I still want something better. I'm open to opinions on shocks! I'll be adding more with the build as I get parts
