    I didn't know you had an RC Crawler! Did you just get this or something?

    I've had it for a couple years. Since I work weekends I can't do the comps. So I just do it for fun. I have a nice crawl area by a park near me and sometimes I'll go out to Frenchmen or Moonrocks if I feel like getting 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.

    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.
