Looks good I think I would go with the older hot rod body though..

crawl187 02-13-2011 07:59 AM

That thing will go way.... better just by addin the Jeep body...:mrgreen:
Lookin good man. "thumbsup"

ecoli 02-13-2011 08:41 AM

Liking the pattern on those wild dagger wheels. Are you planning on dyeing them, or just leaving them white?

66sprint6 02-13-2011 08:46 AM

Looks good, like the fact that its all from different parts slapped together, will def. be unique and if you keep up the good work itll turn out awesome!

Almighty Malach 02-13-2011 11:08 AM

I like it better with the rat rod body, but you could always just build two with all those parts:ror: You going to make the first ttc event with it?

Rivas Concepts 02-13-2011 12:03 PM

Looks like a cool build. I like the jeep body better, but thats just me.

STANG KILLA SS 02-13-2011 02:16 PM

Currently trying to figure ot the driveshafts.. i ordered teh MIPs that dorkstar used - with where i mounted my tranny - its not going to work. the shafts are too long for the rear and too short for the front - so i am back at square 1 for the drive shafts...

then, i still have to finish the tranny mount

then, figure out the shifting servo for the tranny

then some body posts

then lights

and front bumper and a winch

this is where the front end sits rigth now after a trip to the band saw!

family is thinking about coming up tp the TTC at Dans shop on sunday - truck wont be ready but it is still a great time to watch and maybe get some video!

oh - i also have to rig up a pull point for the tow test....

Almighty Malach 02-19-2011 01:49 AM

*sigh* ghetto fab at its finest.



























:flipoff: I love it! Bring it sunday, I wanna see it:ror:

HillbillyCrawler 02-19-2011 08:35 AM

I like this thing.love the ifs .

TwistedXT 02-21-2011 09:29 PM

on the way home from the local TTC comp 1 - had to roll by hobby town to check out the clearence section! picked up a 1/8th scale winch which is ironically the exact same size as the lexan one on teh rubicon body from proline.... also got some titanium bits - looking to mount the tranny and get the front driveshaft figured out very shortly....

next thing to find is an outerwear prefilter to keep the crap outta the motor - a couple of guys had thier motors quit at the comp on sunday... figure on of these will just be more protection. need to get this thing done so i can get some testing in and get it all dialed in before the next comp in 4 weeks.

TwistedXT 02-26-2011 09:33 AM

so - ive been scratching my head over the front driveshaft.... finally figured it out! Stock slash driveshaft adapter - summit drive shaft coupler - old hinge pin - titanium drill bit and a drill press and this is what i have!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_G...223_203709.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_G...223_203725.jpg


now - this has to be directly in line with the front driveshaft which is no big deal.

All i have left is the rear driveshaft, tranny mount, and a front bumper to house the winch.
