    Great job on the truck looks great, I love the swaybars and shock set up, I'm kind of kicking myself for getting a clodbuster and not a smt10. I can't lie through I do love my clod

    Thanks!
    Yeah I had clod since since I was a kid, then I wanted a shaft driven truck.
    I am debating on if I should get jconcepts firestorm tires or just stay with stock.

    I have a set of firestorms in gold compound and they work really good but I think the softer blue compound would have been a better choice for me with the power I'm putting down (castle 4 pole 5700kv)

    Yeah that's alot of power, tires will last longer with gold though.

    I added a fuel cell/battery door from RHDesigns, I started to paint it red but didn't like it so went with black.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Truck looks great, the scale accessories are killer. I just picked one of these up and am planning on doing the CPE links & relocating the shocks/sway bars as you did. Where did you get the shock mounts? They look great. For the swaybars, does RH Designs have an online store? I can't find anything on them, just a FB page.

    I got the shock mounts from ebay just do a search for axial shock droop kit. Unfortunately the only one I could find came from China and took forever.
    RHDesigns only has a Facebook store, you have to email him and request a PayPal invoice for what you want.

    Looks great with the new wheels/tires. Which links are you using, stock wheelbase or short wheelbase? I see that CPE offers 12", 12.5", and stock wheelbase.

    I still need to get in touch with RH Designs to order sway bars, but dont have Facebook. Do you happen to have an email address for them?

    No problem, I understand about finding time lol I bought the smt10 in February and still working on it!

    One thing I wish I could change on the truck now is longer scale shocks bit they don't come in 120mm.

    Suspension works fine the way I have it just could use a little more travel.
