we will see

Ok, the roller is done - lower links are made from Ti, the upper links are made of CF:







And the overall weight of the roller incl. the servo:



968g are about 2.13lb - not bad i think

Are you planning to run the servo without the bottom case like that?

Front upper link geometry looks a little crazy. Seems like simply driving forward will squat the chassis down until the shocks bottom out.

Good progress, otherwise.

Hi,

I am not convinced… if you add the weight of various of missing elements : motor 300g (10.5oz) + liPo 100g (3.5oz) + ESC + Bec 150g (5.3oz) + body 100g (3.5oz) + paint for body 30g (1 oz) + wire 80g (2.8oz) + and what I forget 50g (1.8oz) = 1780g (3lbr 14.8oz). it's largely more than the 3lbs envisaged You will have to stop…



F***ing nice work!!

You need to check your weight estimates, Steph! Motor is max 175g, lipo is 50g, ESC and BEC are probably much less than 150g etc.

Couldn't agree more Tomi
My puller 500 is only 4.3oz no where near 10.5
Battery 2oz
Esc/bec 2.5oz with wire
Body 1oz
9oz is what I see being added plus whatever knuckle weight
Which I don't see much being needed on this amazing rig

So yes it will be over 3lbs but who care what he did here is just awesome

Nah, I can still see this coming in at just under 3 lbs even with an ounce each side for knuckle weights. Time will tell.

It´s happened! The roller is now full electrified and RTR



And now, let us check the weight from the RTR rig:





I would say - goal reached

But for sure, if i add some knuckleweights (and i´m sure i would) - maybe i´m over the 3lb - but that´s not important any more

I hope i can test tomorrow the Shafty, if all will work fine i will shorten the wires and will post up some pics of all the details!
In the front i have to use a bit longer shocks, then also the upper front links will fit how the should

I´m so happy!

Top job Gerry. Great to see the mix of NCD snd your own creation. Goes together like it was ment to be. Cant wait to see this in action. Im sure there are many guys who will want your axels not to mention the guys already using their NCD SuDu's

@ Tomy, chevotafun and Oz Bruiser
I had hoped that the nonsense of the weights that I announced (like 30g - 1 oz for paint for body or 80g - 2.8oz for wire), would be understood like humor.
But irony of my post to disappearing with Google translation Promised, I did not try any more to make humor

Looking great Gerry! Nice an light. Perfect setup IMO.. Light rig, then add weight where you need it. I can't wait to see more, and hear how it runs

I think that rig is to light for the 2.2S Class. You have to start at 1.9



...but normally it's not a to bad work on these


Hope to see you soon on the rocks

That, or I take things too seriously.
