Default 8-454's Numero dos! My take on the Sucker Punch

Well I didn't really plan on building another sportsman rig just yet, hence the #2, but I got the opportunity to build The new 5th Dimension Sucker punch and put my foot in my mouth when I mentioned bringing it to Nats......running.

So I'll do my best to keep everything updated as I've never been real good at maintaining build threads.

The run down of the goods I got so far:

-Sucker Punch chassis
-Negative Space wheels
-Ti links
-Narrowed AR60's
-Wraith trans(its all I got)
-SCX shocks, mini springs
-7950

And some pics:

Chassis and some super cool wheels

Narrowed AR60's with
-OD/UD gears
-Rowdy Racing top mounts
-Wraith knuckles
-CDW Chump levers
-Modded D-lux knuckle weights





Sweet little pieces from Rowdys shop!


And some more knuckle weights just in case its too light of a truck.

Trans installed. Check.




Looks like there's just enough room to run the factory dig for the pro class.

Thank you Don! I'll be sure to ask if I do.

But don't worry, I haven't retired the machine.

Yeah the threads take so much time: you should be fine though.

The truck should turn out pretty light too. I just finished installing the electronics in mine, slapped a 450 in and threw some rovers on blitz wheels on top and it was at 3pbs 12oz. That's still minus a body but pretty much a runner

It's not too bad.

So far it seems like it'll be a light weight. If its heavier than my current S-truck @4lbs, I'll definitely be hunting for the hidden weight.

Whats the motor plate you got in there? Is that an eMachine specialty?

Im sure you'll do just fine getting here going & going well. Look forward to seeing em all crawlin the AZ rocks in a few short weeks.

Thanks for all that you've done for The 5th Dimension E!

Got a little more done today. I was able to get some lower links worked out. Rear uppers are temporary, but they get the pinion close to where I want it. The front uppers will have to wait until I figure out a servo mount.

Blurry stance shot


And some closer ones
