    Slowly building the rig... Chassis is all together, just waiting for the time to finish wet sanding the body, and get it painted... Switched to Axial Revolver bead locks, because the stock PG4S wheels are a major pain in the ass trying to get the Pitbull Rockbeast II's mounted...

    Painted the wheels silver, with blue bead rings... Because black wheels suck, lol. The Pitbulls are grippy as fWONk. Lol. Also, a fair bit larger than the stock tires...


    Upgraded to metal gears in the transmission, and aluminum steering knuckles.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice build. Cross Rc has a nice setup.

    Trail rig, if it holds up, lol, otherwise dedicated crawler if it can't handle speed.
    There's some surprising weak points, but otherwise it's pretty good so far, based on the build... Plastic ends on the driveshafts, is one, lol

    Primed the front bumper and grill.... Tomorrow, prime the body, and sand the bumper day after, in the morning, before hitting it with the black/chrome/clear[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Got the box liner done! I know I should have done the body painting first.... But I didn't want to risk the masking failing while spraying the box liner and wrecking the nice paint, lol. [​IMG]

    Thanks! This airbrushing thing is pretty nice, but takes some getting used to, lol.

    Hopefully the candy blue turns out good on top of the silver... And hopefully I can do a good job making it for the red stripe, lol
