Talking Team Zig~Zag Slingshot


After much deliberation, I finally made the switch over to axial. I decided to go with the Visionary Fabrication Slingshot for this build. So far I like everything about the chassis. I used Revo rod ends for the links. This gave me a 12" WB. So what I did was swap out the rear chassis side rod ends to Jato rod ends, that set me just over 12 3/8".

Specs.

One more thing, quite a few poeple have complained about thier digs from VF. When I first assembled it, it wasn't quite as smooth as I had hoped. Talked to Don & he gave me some things to check. I found I had tightened the case too tight. I dissasembled it & since it was open I sanded down the brass pin on the drive cog. Now it's as smooth as butter, as they say.

Nice build, It must have taken you an hour to type that parts list with the links and all.

Thanks.

Just got home from crawling. Seems to perform very well. It's definately not the same as Fat Cat. I do like the center clearance, it seemed alittle more tipsy than AFC. But I think that's because that was what I was used to. More drive time & I'll have it dialed in. The suspension was very smooth. I need to try the Badlands as they sidehill better.

you can get the vf chassis with the links. either straight lowers or bent lowers and the bent uppers... nice build. i have yet to take mine out and test it yet. it's been built for the last few weeks and time is short so it still just sits on display. bummin'...

He's had none of that this year. How's rydefab handling the desertion? But seriously, I'm actually a little concerned about Sunday.

Thanks, they come with the chassis. looks like madmaxxed beat me to it. I really like the GC & the look of it being slammed.

Thanks. I figured since I didn't do a build thread for awhile, I'd do it right. If someone's building one of these & needs to know what to use, it's all right there for them. Just clickity click.

Complimenting your build in a very roundabout way.

How are the 2/3A battery packs holding up to the 5T Cobalt? Whats your gearing? Do you like it? Are you considering lipo's? Pros - Cons?

Reason I ask is seems like most people "reccomend" lipo's with the colbalt puller motors...
