Default AX10 Fastback II

I bought a stock AX10 off a friend. I have tuned on it some to make a better crawler. Then I started looking for a chassis to upgrade too. And I found the Fastback II, I decided this would be a great platform to build off of.

This is how it was set before the chassis swap.



This picture shows the 4 link that I set up on it.

Talking Re: AX10 Fastback II

This was the last crawl I took it on before the new chassis was to be installed.



Here is a down hill shot on the same course. (This is my personnel rock course at my house)

Here is the build as of last night. I still need to do a good set-up. I just got it together and put it on the shelf till I can tune this thing. I need longer upper front links, I still need to put my new rear 4 link plate on to clock the rear axle, and make a new set of links for the lower rear links. I will try to find time tonight to get a couple links made. I am going for about 2" from the ground to the skid. So far so good. I really like how this chassis shows off the dig unit.

There is something missing here. What happened to your shock mount crossmember?

I am going to make one out of aluminum and not use the delrin cross member. Like I said I just got it together last night. It is far from being finished. This is just a starting point.

My kit didn't come with a alu or any thing for the shocks. and I plan on getting the battery on the front axle. And I am going to get a Holmes BR-XL with a 35 or 45 turn motor. The ESC on it now was just to drive it around my house. Yea tonight I plan on replacing some of the links(The plastic must go). I just threw what I had together to get a idea what I needed to do to improve on. This rig is far from done, just give it time. After I get a set of links on it I like, I will post the length of the links for a starting point for other to go by.

If your kit didn't come with it, email Juan.

Updates? link lengths? Pics? Considering ordering this chassis, my only issue is links. I'm no engineer, so any help would be appreciated.
