Shannon Campbell Ultra4

I've just finished this rig, waiting on rear lights and its done. I made sure I got a heap of pics before I run it cos this is gonna cop a hiding, its all good quality gear that I know will stand some abuse. The chassis is brazed steel brake tube with a flat steel skid.
RX8, Pro4 3300, Vanquish scale chubs& knucks, Beef Tubes, loaded Wraith trannie on 3S.

This is all 3/16 and 1/4 steel brake line , its cheap and easy to work with but still pretty soft . I dont bash or race my rigs so they do just fine. Check out Stock Car Steel for some DOM tube or cromoly , shipping to Australia is a killer so I use what I can get .
