Default SW3 gets an update

Here it is, my 2.2 for the Colorado winter series

Info and all that jazz
BENDER CUSTOMS SW-3 prototype
Slugz Racing INC signature double triangulated links with arched rears
AX-10 axles
Pede transmission
Holmes Hobbies Revolver Black (will be going back to a 3013 if drive shafts hold)
Quark33 from Holmes Hobbies
Hitec 645mg
G-made wideners
2.25 inches GC at ride height
about 3 inches GC max
articulation is barely one 12 oz can

So far the only thing I do not like is how high the battery is so I might have to build a custom pack

Are you worried about spinning the driveshaft pins in the input shafts? Seems to be the question with maxx shafts and the Axial axles.

Yup, I can't drill these things to save my life so if and when they do not hold I will look into something with metal yokes

Still no beadlocks.

Looking good slugz, it looks like there might not be any tlt axles left in CO at this rate.

Do your top links not bind on the chassis?

I may have TLT axles but I'm not competeing with them, except rock racing. I really do not see what you guys see in these Axial axles. They are sloppy, brittle plastic, weak dogbones, and well I better stop now.

I disagree with everything but the sloppy part.

There is just enough room for issue free articulation. Maxx rod ends rub a little but revo ends are the ticket.

Cool slugs, it looked like they would.

Wow like 11 months more!! I have my opinion and I stated it, and good for you that you have yours! And I will clutter Slugz build as I please, if you don't like it delete it!

And Slugz I am not sorry for cluttering your build thread!

OH BOY!!! where is that popcorn eating smiley???

I think I'll be trying the Jato rodends if I actually get to build mine up Are these shafts tougher to drill than the TLT's? I think on my last rebuild of the TLT's I got some Hi-lift pinions by accident...those were friggin' tough.

I'll vouch for 666 and his opinions, no one on earth is harder on RC than he is and he has broken more crap than I have owned
I just want to try them out and see how they hold up to MY driving and if the ring and pinion lasts longer than two comps I will be sold!

Good to see you back wrenching and posting again Slugz, it was mighty quiet from you for awhile. Are you using your 60/40 set up with your new axles. The rig's looking good.
