Low CG with portals

Starting with a builders kit and making a short wheelbase setup.
I added a metal trans and an RC4wd 27 turn motor and hobby wing 1080 esc.
I added metal portals. And to lower it I did the pen spring mod to the shocks. This drops the CG 10mm.
The body is an Ambush . I did the paint job so it was sorta like a seventies mussel car.
I am going to add SSD slots and 4.19 class one tires. Not sold on the tires till I get on the rocks. But want to try them with portals.

This is the inspiration for the paint job Unfortunately my painting skills are what would be called subJosh.

I got a set of aluminum slots with smaller tires to complete the mussel car theme.
The smaller size tires combined with portals and the pen spring mod to lower everything down is fantastic so far.

Kinda changed direction. The small tires and portals worked OK but I decided to put the portals back on my UMG 10. With a single speed trans and pen spring mod it now sits lower and performed better than it did before.
I changed this to metal axles and brushless motor and added some Rockbeast tires. Not sure how they will do.
I also upgraded to stronger links.
