Default Wrecker's 2.2 Wreckluse

Well after many months of waiting to get this chassis into production I finally have one back in my hands. This one is going to be my performance oriented build while my 1.9 Wreckluse will be my more scale oriented build, but that will be a much slower build that might not start for a little longer.

Since I'm also in the process of building a berg, this chassis got everything from my SW3 Axial comp rig. So it will definitely be stout and extremely capable.

Here are the specs,

Production Wreckluse chassis
HPI Rubi hood/grill
Axial Axles with all of the RCP goodies
MSD wheels with Mayhem rings
M2 Flat Iron tires
Duratrax 4" shocks (still undecided)
Axial tranny with VF dig and 645 servo
35t Integy Motor
3S lipo/3S A123/4S A123 betteries (still undecided)
985MG Servo

Here is it quickly mocked up so I could drive it on the couch. The dig servo needs to be mounted somewhere else so I can get the interior stuff in and hide all of the electronics. Sorry for the crappy pics.

Was waiting for this thread.

I'm in the process of making templates for the interior of mine.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

I plan to do some interior work on this one, but the 1.9er will be my focus on the really scale stuff. This will probably just end up with 2 Recaro seats and a dash kit from RPP. Until I get the dig servo moved there isn't room for anything though.

Since I know this question is going to come up, I plan on painting the body white and having everything else blacked out, ...like I am doing on my 1:1 Super Duty.

Thanks guys! I'm really glad you guys like the chassis. I can't wait to see all of the build threads start to pop up.

For the hood/grill I am painting it white with the center raised portion of the hood in flat black, like the prototype chassis in my avatar.

I ran the claws for a while on the prototype, they work friggin good but look terrible. I'll probably through some on here at some point again to compare them again the Flat Irons.

That sucks about the FX-R, get that sucker fixed so you can go beat on it!
An all Wreckluse gtg would be pretty cool, the 1:1's used to that in Moab.

Thank. I'll definitely post up pics of all of the progress.

It's actually regressed since the last post. I've been spending my extra time building my berg. I just finished that tonight so I'll get back on this thing this weekend.

Got it painted. Still need some RCP stickers for the sides and some detail work. I also got the front inner fenders done and the paint is drying on the rear inner fenders and rear interior panel. I used .03" styrene for all the additional panel work.
