Thanks again guys. My apologies on not posting more pictures, including how the chassis is mounted. I went for a run this week and proceeded to hurt my foot :lol:, so I haven't had chance to get the pictures taken. Maybe today after work...

A tip on the chassis, if you search around, you can find the tuber chassis for a MUCH better price online than what is posted at Tower. I'm a Tower fan, but on this item, you can get a better deal elsewhere.

You take pictures with your foot?? :? :lol: Sorry, I suffer from diarrhea of the keyboard sometimes... :lol:

Avoid the Nike Shox. I bought a pair when they first came out, but they killed my back after the first few runs. :|

:lol: :lol: That is some funny stuff there! Good point, but it hurts to put any weight on it. I'm 41 and falling apart. I used some relatively cheap shoes and I paid the price after 3 miles. Now, the arch on my left foot is a mess. I'll probably buy some kind of arch support until I have money to buy better shoes.

Anyway, yes, more pictures are coming, I promise!

Hi guys -- here are a couple of outdoor shots from today's initial run. I was pretty happy with it, although the EZRun system would have performed much better with LIPO rather than the old NIMH batteries I was using today. It seems to be durable as I bashed it fairly hard with the only failure being a ball joint popping out (install error on my part). Needless to say, it's not as clean now.

It jumps well and goes over just about any terrain with the Pro-Line SC wheels and the Blitz tires. Yes, Willy's eyes are creepy, but in his defense, that could be the result of bad painting! :lol:

Thanks guys!

Doug, I know, I know. :( I'm sorry. Life has been a bit hectic and I totally missed taking pictures of the chassis install on Sunday. Anyway, the whole thing is fastened to the B2 chassis -- which has to be cut down -- by two bolts (one bolt on each side joining the tuber chassis to the B2 modded chassis). That's about it. The front shocks are attached directly to the tuber chassis using holes I drilled. To be honest, the front needs more rigidity, because other than the shocks and the two bolts further in on the side pods of the chassis, there's nothing else keeping the front in place.

Diggley, you're too kind. Thanks man! That means a lot. There's so many ultra talented people on here -- much more talented than me.
