We had a good run together but after 12 years I had to put ole girl down. After 6-7 cracks and repairs the frame finally gave out and took the cases with it.  This was the second time I had cracked cases due to frame flex so here we go.

Here's some of the damage a bad frame can do. You can see the first repair also.

I picked up a new lsr pro peg frame last month after not having any luck at all finding a good Arens  frame. Everything I found had either cracks or broken motor mounts and I didn't want to go through this again so I just bought new. At least this way I know what I have.

Fast forward and this is where I'm at today.  What started out as a frame swap has turned into a full rebuild.  The red is from Columbia coatings  super mirror red.

I like the way the graphics look on the black plastic.

Thanks guys I really appreciate it.  Here's where im at today,  got most of the chassis wrapped up besides brakes.  I gotta order brake lines and whatever else I can think of.
