That looks awsome, I used to have the Subaru Brat, when I was little, then the Midnite Pumpkin. Now I'm wrenching on a 2.5 T-Maxx.... no crawler, but I like your style

i gots a 68 bronco body for it! (its a bit beat up as i ran it on the stock clod buster before the tear down, it was a decent crawler from new but the 1" of suspention and 20 pounds of plastic is what made me do the custom one!

took it out today for the first run, no carnage, but the shocks are way to soft, also need some limiting straps so the back end dosent try to run over the front!
