Thanks for the comments/suggestions. when I painted it brown I wasnt planning on doing the rusting effect. bad move on my part. I was thinking about painting the whole thing White. but not sure yet. Im going to hit up the hobby shop today and see if they have some higher offset 1.9 wheels. Anyone got Ideas on a good looking 1.9 wheel with a high offset?

couldn't you get the stock car wheels with more offset? Looks like the ones you have are 0 offset.

Thanks.. Ive swapped the wheels back out for hummer rims for now until I can get some 6mm stock car wheels or maybe those integy aluminum 1.9 wheels they are adjustable offset arent they? I wonder how much adjustment they have.

Anyways the thing is a blast to drive got the r2d linkage hooked up it shifts from 2wd to 4wd flawlessly. I think I want to change over to a different motor though At the moment I have mamba max with a crawlmaster outrunner on a 13t pinion. Its just what I had extra lying around. way more power than it needs but I really want some wheelspeed. maybe just gear it up more? Any suggestions ? a 7t puller would be awsome but not available at the moment from hh.

so far so good with the axles. I havent abused them that much yet but thats all going to change soon. The seem to hold up with the mamba + crawlmaster on 3 cell lipo so far.

At first I thought those axles would be waaaay to small but man you sure pulled it off right. The Integy wheels are up to a 6mm offset I believe but the hummers look like it pulled your wheels outward a bit. Looks good, really great truck you put together. I like all the homemade link stuff you made!

Great job!

Um, on a lipo - no way! I am actually scared to throw a lipo on my 7T. These things are beasts even on 8-cell 1500's. Incredible motor.

im not looking to power down really just get some more top end wheelspeed. the crawlmaster is pretty low rpm. I geared it all the way up to 16t and its still pretty slowish. I like the idea of the 7T cause its got the top end since the truck shifts from 2wd to 4wd it would be cool to have some speed for 2wd burnouts while still having the slow speed control and torque for climbing.

It's looking great. I love the rust you did a real convincing job with it, the axles are really trick looking, up but they make a contrast with the aging you did on the body I would rust them up a bit to..

Thanks all for the comments.

Im not finished with the body ... im going to give it a few more scale touches as well as weather it some more. Im not sure I can bring myself to rusting up the brand new mini t rex axles. maybe once ive beaten them up for a while. I know they stand out under the beat up old truck. but for now Its going to stay that way.

To me, it looks more like ya bought the Yota, didn't give a shit about the body and threw some high dollar axles under it to go crawlin. Which is totally plausable.

This rig has been sittin on the shelf for a while.. I finally dusted it off and muddied it up. ..

now the stance is a bit wider with integy wheels im running the +5mm at the moment but may change it to +10mm. I also swapped out the tires for some cut n shut mashers for the mud .. the crushers were terrible in the soupy stuff.

New integy wheels that I put on the lathe and cut out the center for the hub to go through. there is a post on the wheel n tire section..



bored out to hold hub.



out havin fun..













got a bunch of vids im going to mash together of the muddin .. ill post them up soon.
