love the clayton kit, one of the few things that i wouldn't even have to think about whether to do again - i don't think any other kits come close to the full-beaf-flavor of clayton

Those lights will be the entire size of your rc, Rick.

I wish my rc would show up.

rc-lights.com for the led's and circuitry, there is major discount code on the RPM site (where i got the light bar and rear buckets from). you could use the rc-lights.com stuff but yeah GraKee is right, the RPM buckets would dwarf your rig. the trekker is fun eh? i had the micro crawler which is very similar till it got all taken apart to work on a micro scaler - super fun to just throw ***** on the floor and make a random obstacle course!

The exceed crawler 1/10. It is one of the cheaper ones but I don't have 500 to throw on a rc. And there are a bunch of upgrades a company makes for it so I can improve it some. It was 130 so not bad.

sounds like a good deal, to me a hobby is meant to be fun, there's no need to get crazy with money as long as you are having fun with what you got

Nice! Is it a specialized hardrock?

I am about to get mine out and start tuning it. Snow is melting here so riding season isn't to far away.
