I bought this a little while ago. It was pretty "experienced". This is my first rc. The price was cheap, the boss helped with the initial cost and told me to make parts for it and run a company sticker on it.
So I played with it for a little while to see if it was something I could get into.

I broke the plastic knuckles so went to aluminum. I didn't like the plastic bushings in them so turned some out of bronze

Today I was bored so I headed to the shop and drew up some 3 piece weighted bead locks. The wheels on it have half of the bead lock bolts broken off in the wheels.
The middle piece will be steel, the outer pieces will be aluminum. The middle piece will be the weight and hold both beads to the lip of the wheel.

I had enough computer time and didn't feel like setting up the lathe to start tuning so I started playing with some
