    I base mine on offroad performance, not scale. If it will make it perform better on the beach, up hills, down hills, over thick grass, through mud, through water, I'll mod it. I don't need a skidplate because it won't make mine perform any better.

    Mine also has ball bearing steering. It makes the sterring snappy and accurate. It turns sharper also.

    I compiled a little video of it in the snow, it's like 2 minutes long. I was going to put it on RCpics, but it never finishes uploading. It's 12mb. It's sort of cool, it has on board ahots, a jump on it and some donuts, as well as running in snow.

    Also, most 4 link pajeros have the same articulation measurements, so boasting about a few mm difference is pointless, they may even be the same. I have not touch the front suspension, anything dremel out of it will reduce durability.

    Mine has a body lift so the tires look really small. But if you want me to show you them I will.

    You're pretty hostile over your truck.

    By saying mines better, it was just words to contend with. If I thought yours was better, I'd make it look like yours. I could have said yours was rubbish instead I didn't its personal opinion. No harm done.

    Stop trying to act tough in front of your friend on the internet. I have no need to argue why I think mine is better.

    How do you describe my car looking "gay"? Why is it gay?

    i reckon ya shell is to high off the chassi and the bigger wheals / tires look a bit odd.
    have you got any upper links on the back? can you tack a pic of the underneath?
    i DO like the spear wheel on the back!

    thats a nice looking truck you got there. is the chassis designed anyhting liek the old bruiser they used to make. if you ever saw one. it looked like a real truck and the suspensiona nd everyhting looked real. i want to find a truck that is realistic
