I can't wait to see how you run it. At least selling you my old comp chassis forced me to finish this build.

Very sweet Green Hornet build! How are your RCP servo plates and linkage working out? What setup did you settle on?

Well went to play at Dave A. shop. Came home with a skid plate and strong wheel pins, drill bit thanks dave.

Now on to the titanium skid plate. We changed the design since we found out that .025 titanium sheet can't be bent 90 deg or it breaks.

This stuff is really hard to bend.

Well this what we came up with.

I left my links on the top because they are level that way. I'm running mine a little bit more forward than it should be.

Thanks, I decided to run mine on the bottom with my stock Axial chassis....they were more parallel and geometry looked better that way. I'll find out tomorrow.

Well it all ready for the comp tomorrow. I don't have the new painted panels done yet so I just sprayed the outside of the old ones and bolt them on.


The titanium skid plates first rock rash from my little pile of rocks.

Thanks Nathan this was a fun build and I wanted it to stand out. Selling my other tuber just forced me to rush this one done.

The Titanium skid worked real well helped it slide over the rocks easy.

Dude, could those Pic's be any more out of focus. Whats up with that: twisted:. What I can see, I relay like. Nice job. The test video is real cool as well, Made that SW3 look bad....

Yeah there was only one or 2 trouble lines for the low ground clearance. But the sw3 is gone and you have come to the hustler side.
