Chassis prepped for cerakoting by a guy in AZ. Will be black.


Did the front axle.






In front of the other axle I did in 2012

Scx comparison

A little wider than rear yota axle

Inching along towards final assembly. FYI, Cerakoting is awesome.

Saw em on a LaserNut buggy a few months ago. Wanted to make this a somewhat bare-bones build like alot of the the 1:1 F-Toys, so the clear panels will fit well with that theme.

Propane sorty thing I made. Styrene seats and foam details. Waiting on seat belts.

Thanks Eddie. The rebuild isnít going as fast as I would like but it is working out. I am finding out that staring at it a few times each evening looking where to fit all the pieces to the puzzle has kept me from rushing to slap items on it. Which, is usually my MO. I really want it to have the detail but also want the bare look of a weekend comper.

Bought some pieces and modified some of them.

Seats mounted but not complete.

There's so much over the top detail going on here. Might one be spending a plethora of hours to add said detail? I think so. Very good sir, very good.

Thanks. Just cobbing it together as usual.

First outing last weekend and nabbed 5th in C2. Not bad for a full leafed, 4.19Ē tire truck in C2.

How do you like the SSD transmission ? in general and noise ??

It will be a while until i can get to run mine, had to delay my own projects due to other people needing my assistance with their ( non RC ) projects.

Still exited about the SSD gearbox and i will probably have to get one of those motor / motor covers for mine too.

I have been contemplating making the hood open on my Power wagon body as that would give a cool view of the motor, but i have dropped it again as i think it will weaken the body too much in the front, and not least since i drive my rigs like i have stolen them.

I love the looks of the transmission/t-case. Adding the scale bolts dressed it up a tad too, as well as adding the shifter setups I made.

It does have a "whine" to it a little but it doesn't bother me. I fully disassembled and greased it as well. Had to do that to swap to scale bolts. There may be a way to reduce the noise some but I am not worried about it. I am about to buy another for a new build.

Haha i dident even notice you dressed it up.
I am used to the sound of the TF2 transmission, so it should be fine in this regard.

I have a lot of Sq inched of 1 mm alu sheet metal i have to cram into mine, i like stock or street legal by Danish standards ( which mean you cant do much to your truck )
So i will form up the ALU to act like a bottom that will support the Dodge PW running boards ( no sliders )
And prevent branch penetration ( we get that wheeling in the forest )
Inner fenders will also be made up in ALU and so match the shock towers i will also fab up in that material.
Though all the ALU will be given a black powder coat to aid the fact i will have to glue ALU parts together in some places.
Cabin and so i will probably use 1 mm styrene as that i can work on home in my apartment on the living room table.
Like you i will probably have to stick some levers to the transmission too, as it will be and are exposed too in the old Dodge car, and its not rocket science so why not do it.
