hell yeah! I would think it would be cool to split panels up especially if they followed any angles in the tube of the chassis, im pumped your adding those features and think it would be the move to keep the hand brake for use of locking the rear tires. is this going to be your only crawler? or are you planning on maybe eventually making another one? I know its a ton of work but a portal axle buggy would be mind blowing local builders around me are producing these cars and there amazing! but above all keep up the killer work about time somebody produced a killer buggy!!!
