I'm starting with AR60 axles, mip driveshafts, axial aluminum chubs and knuckles, VP servo plate, homemade aluminum links, losi 4" shocks, Holmes Hobbies waterproof BRXL esc, savox 1256tg steering servo, castle bec, and an Underground Crawler Fastback II chassis, I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff

Still toying with the suspension, need to shorten the lowers, make some chassis skins, install electronics, then go break it....

I am eager to see the finished project. I hope you can take some video of this badboy in action. (I am a little surprised by the angle of the shocks. It will be interesting to see how all that works.)

This is actually a really common setup for comp crawlers. Kinda like running your 1:1 shocks like this /\ it allows for more travel with shorter shocks and a lower center of gravity. Performs very well.
