    Hmmmmm....I'm at it again. This time I'm preparing an MS chassis to pair with Night Hunter shell and Wild Mini tires for an off road car.
    Another suspension build xD

    I've done the cutting and trimming, including inside the shell where the battery holder has been trimmed to allow the fit.

    I've rescued the frp sections from a previous suspension build which were just sitting in a bag.

    I've used the large spacer along with silver/hard spring and capped off with lock nuts.

    I'll probably finish it up tomorrow, still need to make some long axles.

    Pretty much as you see, I've added a front bumper and a rear wheelie bar. I'm having a little issue with the axle mounts I've made into suspension, they keep rotating just a little causing the gears to not mesh properly, so I'll have to look into that, that aside, it's finished and ready for outdoors.
