Glad to see you sharing this build on rcc.
Do you have more information about transmission?
Reminds me of my scx10 ii Cherokee transmission.

I am in the process of cutting axle shafts and doing mock up installs. I will tear down and take pictures during final assembly.

It is some pretty cool progression for a comp rig. I can't wait to get it finished. Should be able to knock alot out this weekend.

Axle shafts built and axles built. Final axle tear down and assembly is next.

Could you show how it's inside portals and transmission ?

Had to cut axle shafts and do axle assembly first. I will take apart the transmission soon.

Correct, except axle shafts, gears and c-hubs type parts.

First picture of the thread shows those parts only.

Looks sexy on there! I’ll send another color if you don’t like the red motor hoods contrasting the red tranny. Matching reds can be tough

No biggie on the colors. Close enough for me, as the shapeways red varied from the color sample on the website to begin with. I grabbed this 16x 500 for intial testing on 4s for this build. I think my last shafty comp motor was a spicy 400. :mrgreen:

I wonder what the final gear reduction is from the pinion say a 18t to the final portal gear is on these rigs..

I am willing to bet a reversed gear portal losi axle setup would work really well with his trans setup.

With a 12t pinion on the motor, the transmission is 7.25:1.

With current portal gears.
Front axle is 7.72:1
Rear axle is 6.51:1

Re: Szczerba’s 2019 Comp Sportsman “Enigma” Build
 
Got the rear axle final assembled.
Rear has some negative camber built into the lockouts, so uni’s it is.
I have regular portal box covers but leaving these weight holders on for now, in case rear weight is needed.

was TT factored in on the side the driveshafts were choosen to be on?
awesome trans.


what pin to pin measurement is your axle width closest to on an axial rig? SCX? XR? AR60?


TSS building on road racers, and Shane building carbon fiber comp rigs.

Everything was "factored" into this rig. For example, there are only two adjustment points on the axle upper links. "thumbsup"

I'd have to measure the pin to pin.

I was hastily hand hacking carbon fiber comp rigs back in 2011 !

These are 9.3” pin to pin and AR60’s are 9.65” pin to pin.

Great build. How much was the setup from high altitude performance? Also, how did you narrow the axle shafts (what tools did you use?)?

Thanks. Just some calipers and a dremel to cut the shaft to length and to grind the flats.

Thanks. Been doing some testing and tuning, as well as waiting on a few final parts to arrive. Then I can mount the body and start really testing and tuning.

Thanks! A little slow going in the garage and heavy rain last week so kept me off the rocks.

Got to the final wiring tonight. Not the cleanest but good enough.

I'm curious about the rear camber, but it's different, and I like that.

The only thing I'm not such a fan of is how wide the chassis is...

Rear camber is for sidehill and uphill turning stability.



All of the components were/are thought out and have a purpose. The chassis is "wide" to get the upper links close to perpendicular to the axle mounting points without having to add mega spacers (weak point) at the chassis. Also, it relates to shock positioning at the chassis and the axles.



So, that translates into a car that needs very little tuning (compared to a setup with multiple tuning points) when it's bolted together and ready to run. It has two adjustment points on the upper links at the axle and an 1" or so adjustment at the chassis. Paired with the link/shock locations already designed to be "close" to great. Although, some may not like this chassis setup for their driving style, it is car that works super good with little previous knowledge of car setup. Just my $0.02. I haven't built a custom sporty comp crawler since 2012 and this car jumped me right to where I was in 2012 without the hours of hand cutting chassis and other components.
