My High-Lift Build Contest Submission
 
Oh wait....no time for building, too busy wheeling.

-Raised the cab up by half an inch or so. Removed the rails. Plan to do a rear flatbed eventually but it works great like this. At the very least I'll make a battery cover.
-Shaved the lip off of the diff covers and it makes a huge difference in the looks department.
-Took off the stupid front bumper and put on the Savage brush guard.
-Still need to relocate the steering servo because it hangs too low now.
-Installed Narrowed Xtreme RC Geos on the RC4WD narrow beadlocks. (Zero offset beadlocks on order)

Now the only disadvantage to this thing is the low center skid. Once I figure out something for that this thing could honestly hang with most 2.2 comp rigs. I have driven it and beaten it probably more than anyone else has and I've only broken 2 minor parts. Servo saver and a yoke e-clip came off. I'm still extremely happy with it.

Thats a tuff lookin Hi-Lift, are you gonna do a tube style bed or what?

Later,
Jake

Is that real rock rash, or did you beat on it with a chain? Looks cool, in fact I think it's my favorite HL so far."thumbsup" You gotta do a flat bed, but don't even think you could hang with my 2.2 comp rig.8)

xjman 11-26-2006 06:17 PM

No, its real. There is a video of it getting rolled and beat over at tamiya club. That truck looks good. I've been working on a chassis that will lift the belly a bit, I'll let you know if it works out.

You obviously havent seen TwistedCreations trail truck.

One question about the lift, have you had any problems inverting the front shackle? Ive done it a few times and it is pissin me off, is there a way to fix it?

xjman 11-26-2006 06:31 PM

Exactly what needed to be done to make it trail worthy. It actually looks to be in decent condition.

dezfan 11-26-2006 06:38 PM

I took my bed off yesterday. And broke my bumper the other day. Then today I sized up a Savage bumper, and now here's your post. Sweet.

Well done!
