well after seeing some of another members updates, i figured id do some of them and do some of my own

pics arent the greatest, ill get some better ones later

i changed out the springs for some shorter ones, makes for better articulation, but still gives it a little bit of suspension. i need to find my double sided sticky tape, or buy some more to mount the battery. until i figure out what i want to do for a better battery anyway. and i weighted the wheels internally. wont reveal what i used for the time being. still need to test it and see how it holds up ;)
well heres a few pics

I think it looks great! Is it super slow for crawling?

the stockers run pretty quick. neat mini's but i think it's a bit too pricy for one.
