Well it's finally time for me to build an Axial, not sure why I have held off on getting one, now that I have one I could kick myself for not buying one sooner.

Yes I love to organize.




and a couple hours later....




The mock-up using a HellCAT R49.






I'm actually quite surprised how well it went together, it's almost like Axial designed it for my HellCAT.

and the Lexan proto-type, keep in mind the yellow is only the template and the final version will have aluminum rails, I'll keep the proto-type for myself.

is this anything like the WK hellcat? I got one of those like a year back and love it, my only problem is now i want to switch over to AX10 tranny and axles, any way to get my hands on one of your transmission mounts? Or is the mount from the AX10?

Looks good Ripper. Have you decided on what body to run yet?

Looks good other then the ENORMOUS goofy shock hoops. They knock everything out of scale.

The frame has a nice flow though....

You'd be best building up the WK-7 and selling it, the hole pattern is completely different on this chassis.

For the record, this is a thread about kreaky, I appreciate the chassis questions, but I don't want to break any rules, as soon as I get the shop setup online and off I'll be getting a vendor star.

I'm going to start with the Power Wagon, it's just sitting there and needs a home.

Agreed, they are a bit tall but I still like them and prefer full shocks too droop. I had a hard time with the shock hoops and the laydown tranney, but the goal was to use the stock gear. The good thing about the bolt on shock hoops is if say I decided to run half droop or shorter shocks I could make some new shock towers. The key thing when designing something using kit parts is performance and I like the performance of the full shock, it works for me, but a removeable shock tower makes it easily modded for anyone. But because function should come before form, I use the term "Scale Appearance".

Oh and thanks, I appreciate an honest opinion.

and on to a few more pics, I was out all day running the router, so lots of aluminum chips but no real progress on the truck.

ok, so now I'm wondering what the next plan is with the holes cut in it.

I like the chassis, form and function designed in with modding possibilities. So there is a lot different than the previous ones. Guess that means I'll have to watch this thread for more umm, news.

I'd replace those shocks with standard big bores and you'd have a class act truck. Maybe include removable shock hoops.

Ahhh I like the AX10 stock shocks, this build was about using the Axial kit parts, as always better parts would be better....LOL

The shock hoops are removeable.

Sorry for the crappy pics, my cannon has gone haywire, so I'm having to use the first ever digital camera....LOL

More styrene and More Styrene, this is really an experiment to see how well styrene mounts to lexan and how well it holds up.





Gotta have door handles.

Well I added the winch (non functional) to the bumper and changed the front grill. Almost ready for primer.

Don't you just love it when you spend good money on quality paint and it just peels right off. This is the last time I buy Tamiya Paint, I know plenty of people swear by it, but man I have had nothing but problems with it. This was Tamiya Polycarbonate and not only did it not stick at all to the styrene, but it's not sticking to the polycarbonate and I degreased it and hit with 600 grit, this kind of kills my hopes of using a poly paint as a primer, now I just have to hope the primer/filler and top coat can handle the abuse, pactra only for polycarbonate for me.

Oh and I have had major problems with Tamiya White, Tamiya Black and Clear for plastics. JACC is being repainted because Tamiya Clear pealed and fogged. I'll go back to duplicolor.



Primer/filler, I hope this hardens enough to resist some rock abrasion, I doubt it, but it was all a learning lesson and I'm still very pleased with the styrene lexan mix.
