Yah. I only pre-ordered two pairs or it would have been sooner. Haha. Got a third pair from supershafty.

Thanks JRH. I have a 2200 stubby here that should be a good motor for it.

Indeed. Indeed.
I wanted to use a set of the 2.2 Hutchinson TSS wheels but the offset is too great. Thought about cutting them up and TIG’ing them back together but they probably wouldn’t turn out clean looking.

And a yeti MIP rear shaft fits perfect, without any need to cut and reweld.
Full bump

I wonder how long those 3D printed portals are going to hold up after dragging on rocks. Do you have any previous experience with them?
Portals hold up just fine. Been running the first set for months with no issues.

Thanks mang. On vacation now but will get back to this soon. Lots of small detail work to be done or made and I am inching along.

Just another crawler! Haha
Bender is a working prototype from a friend.

I did get the axles all built and greased and the main components chassis of the chassis done.

2.2” wheel under the axles. Tires ~5.25” on 2.2 wheels

Not really. I have figured out the custom battery layout and made an interior floor template. Right now, my 2 year girl and 5 month old boy are alot more fun and entertaining than finishing up this build. haha

Got a wild hair to work on this some more.
Not a ton to see in pictures but lots of chassis fabrication.
Threw on some taller tires just to gauge proportions. Probably won’t go this tall but could be close.
Need to weld tabs for panels
Dismantle and finish building the custom transmission
Make an exhaust
Finish build axles
Make front driveshaft
Make custom lipo
Decide on motor
Paint
