This is the only wheeling I've been doing since I moved to Woodland (Hi Peri) and one of many reasons I haven't put my D60 in yet!!!! I started it in August of 06 for my son. I built it stock for my his first crawler. He wasn't happy with the 1/2" of ground clearance, and how top heavy it was... So Dad set out to fix all that... tore it apart, stretched it, changed a bunch of stuff, and here's the end result.

Now for the paint... I figure Dean and Mike would appreciate this scheme!!!



And Vois Las (Sorry if I don't know french)!!! We have a cool rock in front of our house that reminds me of Lions Back in Moab, Southern Utah.

Then it was off to find the biggest dirt clod in the yard...








I will be building a front and rear bumper for it out of 5/16" .035 wall tubing and will post the results here.

My hat's off to all who build tweek, and tweek some more. I don't care how big or small the rig is, It takes a bunch of time to get things just right. But the satifaction when you actually get to wheel it is totally priceless.

I bought them with the Tamiya Kit those are the stock wheels and tires that came with this kit I think it's called the TA2 body/kit...what does the 2.2 mean? I could measure them, would that help?
