    Nice! And congrats on the new bundle of joy! For the record, I've owned a linked TF2 and found that I much preferred it leafed. Way too much body roll with that height of shock too.

    Congrats on the new baby! I have 2 girls, no boys. They are very different. Nice to have one of each...! Awesome news.

    On my TF2, I learned when converting to links, keep it as low as possible. Otherwise it'll just flop over every time you side hill, even just a little bit.

    In case your interested, you can have a look here.

    Not sure if it matters, but here are some notes:
    - I am planning to get the King Shocks for the linked setup.
    - G2 Front Shock Hoops installed.
    - Full metal bumpers and sliders installed
    - the truck will be fully accesorised (full interior, with a back bed full of items, roof rack, winch, etc)

    My truck, at the end of the day, will be HEAVY.

    My question is if I do go the route of the leafs, do I need to double up on my leafs (2 small helpers, 2 medium helpers etc etc) based on the notes above.

    Based on your thread would you say to go 80mm on both front and rear instead of my initial plan of 90mm? Again, based on what I plan to install on my truck as the notes above.

    TIA!

    As promised, I'm back! Since the last post, the RC hobby had taken a back seat. Down, yes. But not out yo!

    I followed my plan of doing the suspension upgrade but swapped #2 and #3 (see post above).

    I have since:
    Upgraded to RC4WD 90mm King Shocks all around


    Extended Skunkworks's wheelbase to 313mm using the LWB conversion kit by Boom Racing.


    With those things out of the way, I then proceeded to
    buy the new RC4WD MOJAVE II FOUR DOOR COMPLETE INTERIOR W/METAL DETAILS set...


    and also acquired a new Mojave 4 door Body Set.

    So hopefully, with all these things in my hands, I will be posting more regular updates.

    Remember guys and gals, Skunkworks is not a project I intend to finish in 2 weeks or a month. It has been 6 months since Skunkworks started and she is far from finished!

    Slow and steadyyyyyyy.

    Got all the colours needed to paint SKUNKWORKS. I exclusively use Tamiya paint as I have always gotten excellent results from them.


    Got to work on the interior.


    Going for the two toned look


    And here is a mockup.


    All that's left is to paint in the details and the metal details.

    Anyway, I need opinions from you guys! Do I leave it looking new or should I weather the interior?

    With the interior done, it's time to tackle the body.

    Originally wanted to keep the silver colour of the original SKUNKWORKS but the son insisted that it be yellow.


    Planned to keep it looking like a brand new truck. I must have blacked out because the back cab ended up looking like this.
