    I've been following on insta as well. This is awesome, glad to see a proper build thread for it.

    I am probably 50a while back of the 30k on Instagram Jonny. Very interesting bit of R&D. I had done one but with HPI - RS4 parts and always wondered if a kit for the masses was doable. Any test drives on the system yet? Sure looks very well conceived.

    No test drives, I'm waiting my my wheels. Also these are just prototype parts done on a poly jet printer, the material isn't good for usable parts but it gives me an idea of how everything will build, I have actually already redesigned the entire suspension geometry and im waiting on new parts. The next couple weeks will be slow with updates because ill be out of town the next two weekends, but this will happen!

    Here's what the new updates look like I doubt anyone will be able to spot the differences, but a lot changed

    I saw this on instagram myself. Very impressive.

    I always wondered why at least one of the manufacturers do not offer a kit like this as an accessory to their existing platform. If RC4WD made a drop in kit for their Trail Finder 2 they'd sell thousands...

    Keep us updated!

    Maybe nobody thinks that there is a market for this...

    Totally awesome design and build project mate I'm completely gobsmacked
    Your "V2" lower wishbone that fully encapsulates the lower shock mount looks way beefier as well. Keep up the good work.

    Well you did quite a marketing research and I bet that big boys are already busy making their designs. I started following your ig somewhere around 15-20 followers, and it was about a week ago I think, and noticed that now you have over 1000 followers, talking about market and organic growth are you planning on making the final version from aluminum or will it be 3d-printed from nylon or hips etc?

    Amazing work!

    So many possibilities with a bolt on kit like this!
