Default Big Oly is coming back

Not sure exactly what I am going to do with him in the long run, but got the axles installed, 3 link and pan hard working tire and wheels installed, tranny and transfer case installed.

the parts so far
- Punisher shafts
- Killer transfer case
- Axial Tranny with all metal gears
- Novak 18.5 with a Goat 3S for now
- HH BR-XL with a 13T Crawlmaster on 4S planned for the future
- HS-7954MG
- MS-645MG Servo Winch
- Pit Bulls
- Old Black Aluminium (Mayhem I think) wheels I had laying around

Probably going to media blast the chassis and go to black then with this paint job:

No kidding! Glad to see it in your hands, Neil, and I can't wait to see what you do with him.

Oh yeah, I'll go change my avatar now!

Almost tempted to move some parts off of my JK and run him in out next TTC, but hard to justify when I am winning with the JK. So probably make Oly my 2012 TTC truck. By then it will be an antique in RC Crawler terms.

When I finish my Class 1, it is going to look like the after picture to your Class 1's Before. I am going full out rusted Mississippi Hunting Truck with a 2 bay beagle crate in the rear.

This was my Brother-in-laws. He passed last year so I am trying to copy his old truck



I have only made it this far. That drop bed and opening tailgate was a bit*h.

So for now I decided to leave the paint. Maybe this winter I will blast it, fix a couple broken light mounts and have it Powder coated, but for now, I just did a rebuild with some minor changes.

Moved the tranny to the skid and eliminated the transfer case. I've had to much trouble with those drive lines. Moded the interior to fit the new tranny position.

it now has:
-Axial tranny with Robinson Racing gears
-Axial Axles with toobs, overdrive and all aluminum upgrades
-Holmes BR-XL
-Holmes 10T Puller
-HS-7955TG steering front and rear
-Axial Aluminum Shocks
-Montrucks Stainless Steel Beadlocks
-ProLine 2.2 TSLs
-Assorted Scale stuff
