    Komodo xl 2.2 mudding truck

    Well my dad recently bought a Komodo xl and he didn't like it so he sold it to me for $50!! Lol so I'm going to be selling the electronics other than the reciever and radio cuz I'll waterproof that. I'll sell me and get a traxxas xl-5 and a 2075 servo. I will be making a mudding truck.
    Pics below






    Thanks for following!!!!!
    I think I've been in the hobby now for 3 years exactly next month!!!!
    So I can say on August 20th will be 3 I think.
    So yaaaaaaaayyyyyy

    Haven't got the electronics yet but I'm going to be doing brushless!! A Velenion 3500kv a vxl3s a 2075 and a fly sky remote and receiver!
    So far I've done 1.55 tires on it.
    Who likes the body now??




    Now when I get electronics and all I will be ready for mud!
