    Nice color choice, should look great with the wrap on it! Look forward to seeing more.

    Thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to reveal it complete here in the next month or so. Really need to get some time set aside to work on it more.

    Oh updates! Pay attention!

    Been working on this rig more and.....it DRIVES! Test drove the chassis the other day, very pleased with the scale speed. There's hundreds of scale feet of wiring in this truck and still lots more to do. Don't worry, it'll all be tucked and decently pretty when I'm done. Started by getting the receiver and GT Power module mounted in a sweet custom bracket for easy access through the side door.

    Then I decided she needed some fender liner splash guardy things to keep some junk off the batteries and out of the box.

    Then the rock lights went in, controlled by an Axial 3-port H/O LED module.

    Tested the lights and sounds, all is working!

    Interior is moving right along as well, we have screens on screens on screens that will have detailed decals, 3 racing seats and a race steering wheel.

    Mounted the speaker box in the tunnel area and it fits like we did it on purpose.

    Also got 4 RC4WD Baja Squadron pods mounted in the front bumper cutouts, just need to wire them to the Axial H/O Controller and pray it works!

    Lots more to do including wiring the cab, which will receive 3 Pro-Line light bars on the roof and two amber marker lights along with some switches and a master power plug for easy removal later on if necessary. More to come!

    More progress! Got the ESC power and rock light switches mounted up in a bracket between the cab and the box. and made a power plug and switch panel in the cab to control the light bars, head lights and interior dome light and a wire conduit to conceal most of it.

    4 Squadron head lights working and they are bright! Added marker lights to the door and roof and they run off of an Axial simple LED controller hooked to the G.T. Power unit to light up when all the others do.

    Got seat brackets done up to mount the seats also, they will go in after I get the wiring all finished.

    Also added some small mirrors.

    Inching ever closer, still lots of small details to finish up before it is ready! The roof rack is ordered and should be here from Shapeways next week!

    It's nice Ty, but are you sure you've got enough lights?

    Definitely not enough lights. Still have 3 more light bars and 3 fogs to wire up!

    Still rigging up lights in this thing, got some nice LED strips to light up the inside of the box for display and show off everything inside.

    Also the cab-over rack came in from Shapeways and it turned out good! Mounted up the 3 Pro-Line LED bars and 3 Axial fog light buckets with grills. Just need to wire these up to the switch behind the driver!

    I also moved the servo down onto the front axle, I know better than trying to run a CMS with a 4-link setup, works like trash so this was the only other option to have good steering and as a bonus it moved some weight off the springs! Now it turns like it should.

    Wrap should be done very very soon and then it'll be time to make a video after I finish up some more scale details.
