The Black Cherry was awesome to drive, it has a really low belly and it shows on the rocks. The low CG drives really stable through rough bumps and uphill/downhill climbs. Some of the things it needed was firmer springs front and softer springs in the rear I also want to add a sway bar for more stability on the rocks but it SNOWED in East Texas so of course I took the Black Cherry for a drive in the snow. I changed the Tires to Pitbull Rock Beasts XOR for some better snow traction and recorded a video.



After that snow fun I took apart Black Cherry and cleaned it. I changed the front springs to a firmer rate and changed the rear springs to a softer rate.



While Black Cherry was apart I Welded in a rear sway bar and made a thin steel plate to cover the V in the exo-cage. I installed the new springs and put the Rock Beast back on and added some stickers.



The sway bar links are hot racing and the sway bar I made with some rod.

I drove Black Cherry and the spring rates felt great and the sway bar helped rock crawling and going fast but the hot racing sway bar links were to short so I made my own sway bar links out of some steel square bar.






The steel sway bars I made Are Amazing better than any other sway bar I have tried. The steel bars have no give and truly keep the truck planted! I have driven a few battery packs on Black Cherry and the Cage needs more bracing so I welded 1/8 rod gussets. I also welded a plate to cover the front servo/frame.

I changed the motor from the Tekin Pro4HD 2600KV to a Tekin ROC412 2400KV with an 11 tooth pinion this really helped Black Cherry to rock crawl better. I will take some pictures of the sway bar and the axle mount and post them. The Black Cherry Weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces RTR.

Some of the things that are on my to build list for Black Cherry are:
Front fenders
Aluminum sliders
Lights
More Tube
Paint

I then give the blue permatex time to set up before the green sticky grease is applied. I can only guess folks are having issues with spool hardware due to improper assembly... I just like the idea of your solution. The spools for the 10.2 are cheap enough to toss when the ring gear has served its life sentence...

Nice, I have broken 5 AR44 Locker/ring gear bolts and can say improper assembly was not the fault for the bolts breaking but rather good traction, torque, weight, and drive time destroys these three bolt lockers.

Well Gavin, if you beat on anything long enough you will have failure.. I have seen many complain of premature hardware breakage and this is why I use 12.9 for the super tiny hardware... I use your pops foams in every tire I run and only run sticky rubber.... I gear down so I am certain I know of this traction thing your talking about...

That is true.
Thanks for the foam support and build thread support.

Gavin and I (Edmundo Ayala) will be driving and filming RC cars on February 2nd at these locations. We will have a practice course or two set up for Activated Outlaw. Consider this your formal invite to stop by, drive your RC car and meet other hobbyists. This is not a competition or full blown event. This a get together with focus on driving and visiting. I hope to see you there and possibly get your RC car on camera.

Alright I let this build thread get quiet.

Time to revise, revive, and reinvigorate Black Cherry!
What has happened the past 7 months?
Black Cherry in true Toyota fashion has been reliable, ready to run at any time, requires minimal maintenance, and is fun to drive.
During July I drove Black Cherry at Barnwell OHV on 3 different trails for 3 4s batteries, 4 hours of trail time, it was warm Texas weather and the motor did not get warm.
I have been impressed with the reliability of this build and I have plans to finish Black Cherry which includes:

Add sliders
Add front fender wells to keep debris out
Add Motor fan for max cooling
Lights
More tube
Paint chassis

1.5 XOR Pitbull tires stretched on a 1.9 VP wheel, with C.I Foams.









I have worn out the Sway bar that I made and have installed a VP Currie Swaybar which has been holding up great! I want to film the progress of finishing Black Cherry But if not I will keep the thread updated.
My Videos I post to Youtube/ AyalaMetalWorks
