Came out nice Watched a few vids in the beginning. That thing does verticals pretty nice. I wanted to do leafs but couldn't find the ones I wanted and did want more flex. My old 1:1 now my buddies has since gone to 4 link too Not wanting to jack your thread but here is mine. After I ordered it from Brett it sat for over a year before I put it together. I went to 2.2 and added 4ws since I've got too many 1.9's BTW the aluminum panels sound almost like the real thing on the rocks

I think those tires AND rims look like a perfect fit. To me they just look like they belong on that rig.

Looks great. Something about those F-Toy's. I really wanted to run the leafs. They will be staying.

You misspelled my name.

Have you seen this guy's RC room? He has wheels and tire combos he hasn't seen in 6 months. Just helping him out. Not to mention the 10-12 bad ass scalers. All sorts of rigs to rob parts from.

And ROLANDROCKSHOP got about 15-20mins of video of this rig too. With the PitBulls.

Thanks for the filming and editing Josh. Video is great.

I need to slow down my crawling for that leaf spring setup and lower the drag brake on my BR-XL

The rock out there at Pinnacle is a crazy mix of jagged traction and slippery gravel. Not to mention the steep uphills and downhills with some good wide open runs.

Yep, Josh knows what to do when he's filming. We were crawling for longer than the video. He did alot of edit work on it to cut it down to something cool.

Yea, That was a steep area with lots of loose rock. Traction was tough and it was a chore trying to get past that climb. Kinda worked out good.

Thanks. Wait til the new wheels/tires come in this week.
I got a set of 1.55" wheels/tires and another set of 1.9 tires. And some yota front locking hubs.

This was my first real crawling session with rocks I wasn't used to. Kinda clunky driving but I'll get better at driving the leaf spring setup soon. Adjusted some drag brake, motor brake and throttle curves this evening.

glad you liked it!

the yota does quite well..

i think id try the red leafs from rc4wd..
for slow crawling they work very well.
i was very suprised with them when i had my h1 on them.
super flexy and stable driving.

I have the red springs in the parts bin. Might swap 'em out when I change wheels and tires tomorrow. I need to pull the axles and inspect the gears as well.

Just got in some

Aisin front locking hubs
1.55" Voids
1.55" Stompers
1.9 MTZ's
MTZ Foams will be here tomorrow. Ordered some Lil' Nova 1.9 Dual Stage 4.25T Foam Pair (2)
The MTZ's are really soft and tall and will need more support for sure.

Stomper stock foams should be fine. That is what I ran last saturday.

Both sets of tires are ultra sticky!

1.55s is the like too.

Got the Lil' Nova 1.9 Dual Stage 4.25T Foam Pair (2) in yesterday and got them mounted. Forgot to take pictures after I mounted them up.

Soft outers up front and medium outers out back. I didn't like the way the outers were going to go in the tire so I trimmed about 1/2" off them. Much better. Just need to drive them and get the foams broken in. Touch firm right now but will get better as I use them.

...

Also, I cut down the rear leaf spring wedges and then turned them the other way. That flattened out the rear pinion angle and pretty much killed all rear axle wrap. Tried the Red RC4WD springs all around but removed them from the rear setup. Too soft, even with the smallest Hilift help spring. Kept the reds up front for now.
