    I traded a roofrack to DBJ a few weeks back for a RC Krawler, and I am still learning what it has so atm all I can say is it has front and rear steer, two 1500mah 4 cell battery packs, and I just replaced the front servo and prop arm with one CKRC recommended. I have been tweaking it little by little to get it to where I like it. It came with a Green TJ Rubicon body but I got a few bits for it (body, paint -candy blue, and silver, servo, frame rods) as a late Christmas present. As you can see in the pics, painting isnt one of my greatest achievements but it didnt come out horrible either. I painted the candy blue coat first and did the rims with the same color, then hit the body with the silver which as you can see I taped off the flares so they would be silver and I painted the rock rings silver. It also has an LED rock light mounted on the front axle but I need to make a different setup for the battery holder cause it likes to fall out.

    Ya, I moved the frame side upper and lower ca mounts, allowed for about 1/4 spin on each of connecting rods, moved the CA and shock mounts inboard on the axle side, and put the frame side shock mounts leaned farther back. So now it feels pretty loose but flexes good. The guys at CKRC said it was looking good as far as flex.

    these scale crawlers are sick. I showed the pic to my wife, told her it was the last Reno4x4 run and she had no idea...till I pointed out the legs in the background! I'd love to pick up one of these once the 1:1 is done.

    Finally got the rear lockouts and steel drivelines. Had to hand cut the drivelines and still had to stretch the wheelbase in the front for a good fit. After using the body post spots in the front for shock mount extensions the orange shell just didn't fit right. Didn't want to drill further holes in that poor old body so I used the cage that was just sitting around.

    The heavy rain forced me to put a new top on my workbench, finish cleaning up the wiring in my kids berg and put some new panels on my berg.
