    And for those wondering, yes I did have an SCX10 D90 build too, I decided to sell that to a good friend, along with my Wraith, seeing as they weren't getting used, then I just started missing a slow crawler/trailer, so decided to go the G6 route this time :D
    I just love building and tinkering with 'em!

    Well, here she is... This is just the basic build complete, pretty much stock, aside from the rims.
    Axial 27t motor.
    HobbyWing 1060 brushed ESC.
    Hitec 646.
    Zippy 5,000 2s 20C.
    SSD-RC 'D' hole steel rims.

    Oh and also, the lighter was just to test how the DIY bungee's stayed in place, I'm making a few as I'd like to perhaps get some tools in the back somehow, stuff I can actually use out in the field... Add some scale looks and saves some weight from my back pack haha! :p

    Thanks :) today I did a little bit more, just raised the shell at the front, both to make it look better (in my opinion) and also give more clearance for the tyres, so now they don't rub at all.
    I've also now ordered my front bumper as well as rear, I just can't find a nice pair of rock sliders that I like :(
    I've also fitted some 'netting' to the cage, it's actually not mesh or netting because I didn't want even square holes, so I opted for some non slip mat that I had laying around, so now I think the rear looks a little bit more complete and less plain.
    Would really value some opinions on the build so far :D

    Had her out for her first trail today, didn't last too long because of the big puddle in the last picture, it was a bit deep and got the BEC wet (only bit I forgot to Plastidip :( ) it didn't even occur to me it was the BEC as it was still lighting up, so assumed it was the ESC, and I came home.
    Still happy though, truck ran awesome, absolutely loving it.
    Felt like the kind of truck I'll keep in the boot of the car with the tx just in case we ever go anywere I can use it for a bit.
    Now sadly, I dropped my tripod and trying to avoid a pile of dog mess I stood on it and snapped a leg off, so couldn't do any video, but I did get some pictures.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the positive feedback :D
    Yeah I'm surrounded by fields and woodlands for miles, so I have my pick of trails and stuff, all right near to my house, I'm pretty lucky that way.
    I received my winch today, got it all working AND I didn't get stung by customs, BONUS!
    Just awaiting the arrival of my new BEC then I'll be back out in the mud!

    Wait until the BEC is in there and she'll be back out to get dirty.
