    Scale. I tried shortening the wheel base but I think I got the links too short. I got the CPE 12 inch when everyone was going with 12.5. That 1/2 inch less makes it harder for the shocks to contract because the center driveshafts (MIP) don't have too much room to contract themselves.

    I might have to go back to the stock links.

    you could make a steel plate that bolts up to the existing 4 link tabs to move the mounting points out a tad, i did that on my wheely king for awile

    That's an option. I'm not too handy with steel though. Did you drill the holes?

    You should wait for the updated SMT10, no idea when it may come out though

    Yeah the updated SMT10 might take a while to come out, if at all.

    Care to give us some clues about those "secrets"? I really hope an updated version of the SMT10 comes with bigger tires and the trans/motor/shafts necessary to run such tires. I've spent nearly $300 just to update mine to those specifications.

    They look cool. If I already didn't have so many RC's I'd get a cen. Speaking of having too many RC's, I just scored this Tamiya Bullhead for only $8 from the local thrift store.

    I still can't quite believe I made out with the Tamiya for only $8 lol. Technically it was $6.99 before taxes. It will need some things like new electronics most likely, maybe the motors and of course the radio but even then at I bought it a roller like this I could sell for $150-200 easily. I will be frequenting this store every weekend from now on, maybe even go back to it tomorrow lol.

    I have more RC cars than I can count. Lots of Mt ones. Most are currently in storage until I can find a new place.
