    So it has begun. We found a nice Qc to make into a killer family machine since we have out grown the Bad Snake

    I got it home and spent a few days cleaning the paint, and swapping over some of my carbon fiber stuff stuff from the Rc

    I sold the Oem bed cover, its not really my style.
    I removed all the badges from the truck but the left the viper powered on the oem hood.
    I installed new head light and fog lights.
    I swapped over my other grill to see what it would look like.

    When you swap a rc rear end in to a QC and use the QC drive shaft you will need a 1350/1410 universal joint

    The mounts come as a kit that you put together and then weld up. Thanks Charlie

    Hello Badsnake, I noticed you have a Hotchkis Rear sway bar. Can you provide me with a part number on that part as I would like to add that to my truck. Thanks again.
