Project APEX - PT 5 - 1/16 Revo UPDATE -Wheels/Custom Mount/Lights/Painting

Project Apex Update- Proline Wheels, Custom ESC Mount, & Lights Galore!

Here's is a update video for everyone as to what has been going on behind the scene with project APEX. As some of you will see in the video I have moved back into an old location, and honestly it feels great to be back into a place were RCoverload Originally started!

With that said lets talk a little about what I have been doing to project APEX. First off I went a head and installed the Traxxas Summit LED light kit into the front and rear bumpers, as well as install a set of Proline Racing Trencher Wheels on Their Bead Lock Rims! What an amazing looking tire, It fits this vehicle perfectly! I have also been doing a lot of prepping to paint the Proline Racing Apocalypse 1/16 body as well as learning how to paint on a few plastic bodies! the last few things I did to this projects was water proof the Axial AE-2 ESC with some plasti dip and installed the 55 tooth spur gear.

So as you can I their has been a lot of work that has been done to this rig so far. But the coolest thing in my opinion is the custom ESC mount that my buddy Andrew over at Big Daddy RC Customs made specifically for this rig! what an amazing job he did! A simple design that saved me A LOT of aggravation!!!! 
Thank you Andrew for your help and contribution on this project!
