    That is amazing. R7k isn't a lot for something like that if you look at similar toys.

    Price is not bad at all. Not a big fan of Traxxas, no specific reason.

    With the vast amount of available goodies out there I am sure there's alot that can still be done
    I focused on getting as much weight down low as possible, to try and offset the top heavy setup of the bodywork.
    I also tried to get her to run as slowly as possible for scale crawling.
    Most certainly not a fast vehicle, but very capable and fun to drive.

    What worked wonders for mine (Twin motor crawler), maybe you have done it already, is placing weights on the wheel hub. I used balancing weights, got them for free from a local tire dealer. Cannot remember how much I gained, but the weight causing so low center of gravity, made a big improvement!

    Morning Leon

    You can contact James at B&B Importers on 011 794 5253 (they only open at 9)
    He'll be able to assist you with a TRX4 chassis kit, and then a Killerbodies LC70 body kit.
    Then it's several hours of lekker building!

    Shout if you need more info.
    Regards
    Justin
