So, anyways, I've learned in my Mini-T endeavors that power is nothing without control. This is common sense, of course; but, when you're building an RC, it's always fun to make sure that it's ridiculously powerful before you start dreaming up the suspension to handle it.

This project was meant to be built on a budget...seeing as my last big Mini-T project costed almost $800. So far, this one's got $275ish wrapped in it, i got everything for a decent price.

Here's the list of mods:
Carbon fiber chassis
Carbon fiber front and rear shock towers
Carbon fiber servo holder
Carbon fiber front bumper
Carbon fiber suspension plates
60t gpm spur gear
15t Losi alloy pinion
MIP clutch
MIP differential
Losi oil filled shocks
Venon Fireball Motor

Electronics will remain stock until they fry.

The beefy battery pack helps out with the center of gravity and it sits pretty low for a Mini-T. Future mods include a metal heatsink for the motor, tighter turnbuckles, new reciver, servo, transmitter, and a carbon fiber brace to go over the bulkhead to stiffen the front end.

Here's a teaser pic. New wheels are in the mail and I'll get better pictures of the body when i get the new wheels/tires.

Nice truck... I like all the CF, maybe more pix please. How do you like the CF bumper, I usually keep the stock plastic one on all my RC's... They flex and take the impact, where the aluminum and CF bumper actually sends the impact through the chassis because it doesn't flex. Have you had any problems?

Looks great, Suicide! You need to post this one up on BYT, I'm sure they'll love it as they did to your aluminum one!

Update:
Pics of chassis and new alloy wheels.

@XXX: My offroad Mini T has a BONZ plastic front and rear bumper kit and it does a great job, considering the truck is a basher. The CF and Aluminum are more for show, expecially this CF bumper, it's more of a skid plate than a bumper.

I love the look, the body was cool but those rims just makes the whole thing pop. Very sick, can't wait to see the upgrades stock up.
