Further Description/Back Story Started out as a set of axles and over the course of about 2 years collecting parts I finally found the chassis I wanted to run. Several configurations later I was happy with how it sat. Lots of time to pre plan what type of electronics I would run along with the rest of the drive line. The biggest hold up was finding the correct chassis and then I found exactly what I needed. A week of building and testing and I now have a fully functional monster.
