one thing to do is remove the bumpers on the axles. they hurt your approach angle when crawling

well the bumper is going to be attached to the frame so it till look more scale

and by the way most of the street legal jeeps doesnt have 90 of approach angle and well i like to use a bumper for the winch and here in venezuela EVERYBODY HAVE TO USE A BUMPER so.... the bumper stays

The titans are 23 turns I think. Also 14.4 is the maxx rating they will be fine up to that point. I have that same body. I found it too little for my liking with 2.2s.

ok some updates


make a winch from a traxxas 2055 servo
lock the pede tranny, cut it and sand it

make a chassis from alum and metal but its to wide so i have to mod it!

also make an order for some tlt axle spare parts, alum knuckles, decals, rims , tower pro 945, axiom 35t motor ... etc

all my rc stuff are on storage because in less than 15 days because i am moving to another country (brazil)


mockup with 1.9's





i use 80 lbs line



so since i dont have shock oil ...i fill my shocks with this



the body work will be later first i have to repair my chassis and drive shafts angles

and i think i will stick with 2.2 mashers

thanks for looking

Looks good so far! i would consider reinforcing the chassis a bit more. It looks like it would flex like crazy.

those tires are way to big.....1.9's would look hella lot better with that body

other then that every thing looks good.

thanks cammok

*****************

thanks chaman maybe i will ... but let me tell you the chassis fells really strong


*************

cjkranwin i know the tires are really big but the 1.9's i have (tlt ones) doesnt perform good... and buy new tires here means more than a month and more $$$

i prefer performance tha scale look for know since i have just one rig .. so when i buy another rig (WK maybe)i covert these to a real scaler and the other to a real offroader and rockcrawler

for now it will stay with the 2.2's
