Default Hybrid Build Thread

I''m re-starting the build on my AX-10 for the season. I'm one comp late but should make the next one right on time. I started this build last year around this time, but never really got anything done. I guess I'll start with a parts list:

Harley's Hybrid Chassis
DNA Dig
Hitec Dig Servo
STRC Aluminum Bits
Axial HD Gears
RCP Lockers
Axial Universals
Losi Shocks
Delrin Links
Eritex Wheels
Losi Claws (Probably soon to change)
Airtronics Servo
Holmes Hobbies ESC ( If it doesn't come out in time a Tekin FXR)
Spektrum Radio

The Work Station


The front axle sits how it was built last year


Chassis and tranny.
Are the replacement HD dig parts worth it?


The back axle. How do I shim the side-to-side movement on the straight axle?


Lastly, i'm trying to figure out a steering setup. My tentative plan is to just run VP high steer knuckles instead of BTA. I may even try a homemade BTA. Any suggestions??
Thanks for looking

As far as a BTA setup goes, I would mock up the whole thing suspension wise and se how much space you realistically have. The shocks become the primary issue. If you decide to keep the 3 link up front, I would go with the axial BTA since it comes with everything but the cvd's.

I think i'm going to mount up the STRC 4-Link plate with VP high steer for now. But how are you guys fixing the slop with the straight axle? No updates til Sunday though. Going to SEMA!

The bearings on the outer housing, are they optional? The reason I ask is that I disassembled my wife's tonight and there are none there.

I'll be watching this with great interest. I got a brand new hybird chassis just last week in a trade.

Those bearings are from the knuckle. I think thats just how the STRC straight axles are designed. I've got more parts to finish this build coming in the mail this weeks. I hope to have it rolling by friday.
