Default I did it! kit is coming

Well I bit the bullet and ordered my crawler kit after doing a lot of research here. I ordered the ax10 kit and a Novak rooster crawler/55t combo, oh the pain of waiting:-x

Thanks for all the great info the site, it helped me make an informed decision.

Way to go, building kits are the way it should be IMO. I got 2 AX10s one built the other for a later date. Half the funs in the bulding.

Not a whole lot to show, I managed to sneak out to the workshop and get my front and rear axles built and my link arms assembled.

If I may make a recommendation, if you are going to keep the Axial shocks order you some more springs because the ones that come with the kit are hard as rocks.

Thanks for the heads up on the shocks, I went to LHS today and no luck on replacing them so that will have to wait. I did however pick up a few things, some nice black chrome wheels and a mini bug to go with my 1/5 scaler.

I stopped into the LHS and they had the maxx shocks, so I went for it, and did the cap mod. I also picked up some springs at the hardware store which are the exact same dia. and length but are a touch softer.

NIce pics, I went with the same combo you did, ordered it last night. Any problems during the build or things you might have done differently?

no problems as of yet, everything went very smoothly so far. I did make a couple of changes already though, like mirroring the transmision and putting the max shocks on it. I also slipped some carbon fiber arrow shafts over the aluminum rods to help it slide over the rocks better. I still need to pick up a couple of lipo packs because I'm not happy with the stick pack location. I have also made a plate on the rear link arm to mount my speed control out of some blank circuit board material I had laying around. I'll be crawling by this weekend for sure although it will be using the stick packs for now.

Thanks Uni, I went back out to the shop and finished my rigging, and even gave it test crawl in the shop woo hoo . Now it will be onto the body.

Do you guys think three 1/16 holes in each wheel is enough or should I go larger dia?

Ok, so I laid down some paint. I'm not finished yet but I got a start on it anyway. I laid down an Indy silver base coat on the inside, then used the flat on the outside with the airbrush. I still need to do a bit more but I think it looks good so far. I think I need to lay in some darker browns as well, IDK?
