    Just a little side project, a simple build. Had it for a while but lacked the paint. Well I fixed that, it's a simple build going by Tuned High Speed specs, running 3.5:1 on bearings and fluorine coated shafts, 9mm rollers with 5mm stabiliser bearings. I also added the front underguard from the FMA just for looks as well as the alum wheels which can be switched out for larger wheels/tires if needed. I did enlarge the wheels arches after adding stickers just so the wheels could fit.

    I'm not sure what you guys do about gear stabilisation, I know the typical method isn't allowed, but what about stabilising the gears using tamiya tape? Not that it needs it, it's reasonably quiet as is already.

    Also, more bearings so I can get back to the amphibious soon, well I at least want to get it running, I don't know if I care to make a top for it.
