Default holycaveman's scale 2.2 The Montana Outlaw 8)

Havn't posted a build in a while and since this one is alittle unique, I thought I may as well start one.

I have done ttc and 1.9rs before, so this time I went with a 2.2 scale build. Tough part was being origional an still scale. I was going to do a bronco, but even though i love them, there are some awesome bronco builds that would be tough to compete with!
So i found this body in the forsale section.


And while i have never been a land rover fan, the size appeared perfect for a 2.2 scale build.
Once I recieved the body and mocked it up, it confirmed my estimation, it was the perfect size for this build.


THANKS shambrick! After I saw the shipping costs he practally gave it to me!

So first thing i did is strip the body and sanded it down. Now this body is a 1/7 scale. So 5 in tires would scale out to be 35's on a landy, but i alwaus liked alittle larger tires than stock anyways.




Next I started on the frame.

I used 3/4 in square tubing instead of 1/2 in. Harder to bend but looks wise i think its better.



So since the type of motor I have spins very fast I descided to go with losi axles flipped upside down for now. You will under stand why they have to be upside down later
I went with a sort of z link rear, and a two link/panhard set up in the front. I wanted to stay away from the common crawler link for this build so i went with a boxed and pinned with bushings in the rear, and a torsion bar set up in the front. Its pretty dag gone strong. But took me quite a while.






Got my super swampers in! THANKS edge087! Little agressive for this build...
But i like the mud!
Also started a ladder for the back.


I descided to put the motor up front. Alot more difficult but in the future this will allow under the hood access and a full interior. The wb is 16.5 and with the motor up front i had to come up with a carrior bearing. I used max shafts drilled and pinned tight on all the outputs.

Carrier bearing.

Used three six mm bearings for the carrier.




And also today I got my tranny mounts done.

And the drive shafts hooked up.




I am pretty happy so far except for the shock mounts. I think i will change the upper mounts and lower the chassis about a 1/2 in.

Couple of poser shots.



Thanks for checking this out!

I will try and keep it updated regulary.

So far he hasn't explained.
But that axle looks flipped to me too.

Looks good so far Tom, but don't lower it. Your going to need ground clearance with that long wheel base. Also, I think it's pretty cool how you have a misterious twist to your build thread.

That does resemble a 2-speed tranny out of a T-Maxx...

I think the black looks better, but the silver does looks more stock.

I'd go black, those wheels are sweet. I too am curious about the axles being upside down?
