    Vids are very cool. I have a Q. the blocks between the axle and the leaf springs. Are those tripped up txt-1 axle mounts?

    Tha is. The lift blocks came with a kit from Jamie. I did work with Mike Hesse on modifying some mounts he had to accommodate the leafs. Get in touch with Mike and he can probably cut a set for you.

    What was your final gear ratio you used if I may ask?

    The spur was 66, not sure on the pinion. Probably about a 4:1, I think the pinion was 16.

    Sadly I don't have any vids of it running. The guy I sold it to was toying with the idea of selling it last I talked with him though.

    If this was the truck that Angel has....I saw he posted it on Facebook. When I got the money up to buy it he said he didn't want to sell it. I found a mint Jugg that I bought for the axles and Jamie had a frame left.......so I bought that and am going to build my own. I had one and sold it like a dummy....smh.....but this one isn't going anywhere! I just wanted to know where to start on my gearing. I am going with the old school brushed motors so I can run in the Retro classes. Thanks for the reply!

    I’ve been out for a while but I just bought this truck back. I need to do a little work to get it going - anyone with these trucks have a suggestion on a Servo saver?
