Default Fricker08 builds an Rc Speedy Project $2K22

Iím a little premature.. but man Iím super excited about this thing. Iíve wanted one of these since the first time I saw one. Well Iíve made some room on the shelf and in my wallet so I figured what the hell.
Rc Speedy fab C2 setup for a vs4-10 pro/ultra
I ordered the chassis yesterday and thereís a 5-6 week lead time. I went with stainless tubing over the titanium rod strictly due to the cost. I will drive it but like my other rigs it wonít get beat.
I canít wait to get this thing in my hands and show it off. Iíve started gathering some pieces and I may have a trick or 2 up my sleeve pending the chassis allows it. Stay tuned!

Well since the chassis showed up, I figured Iíd go over the build list.
It will be sitting on vanquish D44 clear axles with some cerakoted vanquish bullyís finished off with Scale hardware wrapped in Proline Km3ís and PL dual stage foams.
Vfd twin transmission powered by a mamba x and 2850kv slate motor. Holmes hobbies shv800 for steering and some low profile servos for transmission shifting duties.
Proline pro scaler 90mm shocks, may get swapped out later.

The quality of this thing is impressive.. so far all the fit n finish has been great. Iíve got the transmission mocked up, axles installed seats and panel mounted, receiver box fuel cell and bump stops mounted. Next Iíll be working on the sway bar and getting the transmission mounted for good before working on getting the servos setup.

That is some beautiful cage work. Is it designed to fit a particular set of panels or will you be making them to fit?

Thanks guys!
Bama, this is my first set of cerakoted wheels and these are a little more intricate of a design so there is some flaws but overall they should look killer mounted up.
Smog, it comes with a set of aluminum panels. You can get the optional 3D printed panels which look better imo but theyíre expensive.. mainly because they come with a stainless backing plate. But I will likely try to make some panels myself and try to save the aluminum ones.
For the base price you get the cage, panels, suspension links which the rear lowers are trailing arms, welded servo mount and removable grille. So all in all not bad, itís when you start adding in all the options when the price goes up.

All I can say is wow! This thing looks killer.. I canít wait to get the build started. Hopefully Iíll have a rolling chassis this week. Then once this oneís done Iíll start in the 2nd oneÖ wait what!? Well speedy said theyíre discontinuing this chassis and had 2 available so I couldnít help but buy another. The vs4-10 pro I stole.. figuratively speaking.. should make a great donor for that one.
