Chassis is cut. She is going to be narrow! I like it! Hmmm, should I post a side profile of it, which will give a lot of the idea of the build away or should I wait till Monday....? Hmmm.

Upside down is retaliative I guess? I say its right side up. LOL. It will bolt between the frame rails. If you take a look at the trans pic, you will see the cross braces that are mounted.

I have so much time and effort into this already that I dont think I will give it up. Also, things are working out so well that I am not frustrated with it, like every other sporty I have touched. Its amazing that everything is fitting and working the way I want it to. Weird. I guess you change a couple of key features of a standard crawler and it can do that, huh?

So those are SSD centers on the axles, correct?
If so, is it Delrin?

Oh I see, well in stock form the SSD Pro axle uses the nylon housing and steel tubes. DLux makes his own "SSD_lux" version using the housing:

Good, your last sporty was a shit show.

You're thinking way beyond the bun on this burrito that's for damned sure. Glad my stupid ideas could be of some influence good or bad.

Nice

I think I can see some holes where the transmission could be mounted

Are the bolts tight?

That front cross brace doesn’t look very square in the chassis

I’m pretty sure looks that way because one of the chassis Plates is taller than the other

I bet this thing is gonna have cantilevers in the back with some sort of atrocious axle truss up front. We can call it the labradoodle wheelbarrow.
