Ordered an artec front truss, should have all my link parts soon, still Debating on what to do for link mounts on the rear axle. Time is getting close for this thing to go under the knife.

Parts list is coming together, got all my heims for my 4 links, link material, artec trusses front and rear, artec and ruffstuff link mounts, new parts to build motor mounts and skid plates, new radiator and fans, transmission parts, new body panels......

Hope to get it in the garage this weekend and yank the axles, maybe start cutting up the frame. Doing a front half out of 2x3 and a back half out of tube. Gonna use coils for the rear 4 link for now.... Getting excited
