Is this thing built to crawl or haul ass? Looks like it would be bitchin if it was a fast build. What drivetrain are you going to run?

If I had the fab experience, I've always wanted to build a desert type truck with an Axial axle in the rear and some custom arms or I beams up front on a tube chassis. I have yet to see that done though.

wouldnt be to hard to do... the HPI MT2 has the same gearing in the axles as the axial so you could have indy up front and straight axle rear pretty easy..

I plan on being able to crawl as well as haul ass! I will be using a tranny from a highlift which is a 3 speed 1st crawl and 3rd haul!!! I will get some pics of it all mocked up hare in a little bit.....stay tuned.

Sounds like yopu need to get started on a build you have already done the hard part,,coming up with an idea..
