Default Echodawg's F-350 Truggy

Specifications:

Body: F-350 cab with custom truggy rear end and rock sliders
Chassis: K2-5
Motor: Crawlmaster 3014-1000kv
Trans: RC4WD R2
ESC: Mamba Max
Tires: Rock Crushers
Wheels: Createacrawlers
Axles: TLT Front: 303 steel axle, aluminum 2 piece knuckles Rear: straight axle adapter with straight axle



After tearing down my last build, selling some and saving the rest, I decided to start another build. I wasn't going to bother with another build thread but wtf. I just got started so there isn't too much to see yet.

Assembled the front bumper and just had to go with some more scaleoffroad emblems.


Started the chassis work so I'll get some photos up soon.

Got some more work done on the chassis. The cab is going to be left a primered gray but I wanted most everything else black. So I'm using a stealth black MFM chassis, to which I mounted a black R2 and of course a Crawlmaster. I also got the links all setup.


Messed around with the rear shocks until I was finally happy with their configuration.

After two days of constant tinkering I finally got my links correct. It is amazing how subtle adjustments can really alter the articulation one way or the other. I must have atleast eight hours into messing with the links. I also removed those darn servo mounts off the axle. I feel they just kill the scale look. Anyway, onto the photos.

I cleaned up the mount for the rear shocks with better bushings. Still need to shave that axle.


I got a battery tray mounted, low and over the front axle.


Tranny mounted on homemade mount. Had to be mounted standing up to lower driveshafts and to clear the links.


Link setup, as close to parallel as possible.


Link stand-offs to clear frame during flex.


Front servo chassis mounted.


Weighted front wheels.

You have half of the stuff that I want to use for a build right there! lol Looking good man, how high does the motor/tranny stan above the top of the frame? It doesn't look like its that tall. Did you widen the frame at all?

Thanks. From the top of the chassis to the top of the tranny is about 5/8. The frame is stock width.

Pretty simple, I just drilled out the crossmembers and ran the screws with some rubber bushings from the hardware store. Once I get some tires on I'll post some flex shots.

Since I won't be running a bed I wanted to fix the lower back wall of the cab near the doors and how it just ends abruptly. Out came the styrene. It's not sanded yet but you get the point.

You're right but I guess it will be more truggy/warpig, whatever the hell they call those things. Thanks for the compliment.
