    This looks very nice! Well done! Now that you have it completed, are you going to do any mods to it?

    Welcome to RC Sparks you'll find all the info you'll ever need out here just ask someone for advice if you get stuck. You also have a great truck and build there are you going to make any mods? I'm just finishing my first build off as well and found this site so valuable.
