Default Dezfanís Horny Old Goat (HOG)

DEZFANíS Horny Old Goat!



So I picked my Capra up last week and of course my schedule went to Hell the next day!

Got super busy and Iíve been traveling non stop.

But I had a few hours this afternoon to get started on my HOG! 🐐

Iím not going to do an in-depth review as Topher, Jato, and others have already done it. Nice work fellas. Made it easier on the rest of us. 👍🏼

Just going to document my experience with this new Axial/Horizon offering.

I started with the shocks.

I used an 8mm internal spacer I measured and cut from some PVC air line to shorten the Shocks to 90mm overall length.

The new shocks are a massive step up from past Axial offerings. Big ups to Axial on these new shocks.

Not quite as smooth as my Enduro shocks, but still very nice!👍🏼

I used the included Red springs with zero preload (minus the 8mm they are already preloaded from the internal spacer).

Only ďissueĒ I had with the shocks was overlooking the installation of the black O-ring that goes in the shock cap on the first two shocks. ☺️



Next I moved onto the front axle.

Went together quickly and without a hitch.



Next I built the rear axle. Again, went together quickly and without issue.

Iím really liking the new plastic Axial is using, leaps and bounds better than their old Flubber recipe.



Started on the links next, these new links are freaking BEEFY! The new rod ends and stainless(?) pivot ball are another huge improvement over recent Axisl offerings!

Once again, great job Axial!

About as far as I got with the HOG this afternoon.

She don't eat meat, but she sure like the bone!

The shocks should have also had o-rings around the bleeder screw IMO. Other shocks do. I'm concerned this will be the weak spot of the otherwise good looking shocks.

What a mangy gaggle of horn dogs! 🤣

I agree on the O-ring for the bleeder screw Jato. 👍🏼

So I had a little time (and energy) after dinner, so I headed back out to the workbench.

Completed the remaining links and got them along with the servo mount and shocks attached to the axles.





Again, pretty much a strait forward build to this point. If youíve built a kit before, you should be ok with the Capra.

I say this, yet Iím dreading the transmission build. Hopefully everyoneís prior experience will make it painless.

More to come...

Easier then figuring out the gear setup on a XR or Bully for sure lol. Depending on your manual print just remember there was a picture error on the spur shaft.

The trans build was a piece of cake. Just watch for the error that everyone has already seen and pointed out and you'll be fine.

Snuck in a little build time after dinner.

After reading up on a couple build threads and paying close attention as I went, it came together fairly effortlessly.



Working on my other rigs as I have a GTG tomorrow, so the HOG will have to wait until tomorrow for any further progress.

Well our local GTG was a bust.😡

So I went home and reorganized my garage and worked on the HOG. 🤪

Installed a Hackamoto 5 Slot 16T motor with the included pinion. Iíve used this motor in my Marlin Crawler and really like it. Smooth power delivery and good wheel speed.

Got the dig servo installed as well using the recommended Spectrum micro servo.



Built the drive shafts using the updated Axial build sheet available on line.

Sharing it here to help anyone who might need it in the future.





Then attached the axles to the skid.



About that time the mail was deliver and a new set of bead locks showed up. 🤩

So I took a break from assembling the HOG and started assembling the new bead locks.

Now I have multiple choice for tire/foam/wheels to run on the HOG.

Combo one, RC4WD 4.75 Wrangler MTRs in the X2SS compound. Iím using Pro Line single stage foams as the included RC4WD foams seems to be to firm and narrow.

Mounted them up on a new set of 1.9 Injora wheels.



Combo two, Pro Line 4.75 BFG Krawlers in Predator compound. Using two stage Pro Line foams in these and theyíre mounted on another set of 1.9 Injora bead locks.



Combo three, Pro Line 4.75 Hyrax in Predator compound. Using two stage Lil Nova comp cut foams with a soft outer up front and a medium outer on the rear. Again mounted on a set of 1.9 Injora bead locks.



Combo four, 4.19 Nottsix ChooDoo MTRs in ďChexĒ compound running stock foams and mounted of the stock Capra bead locks.



About as far as I got before my back started hurting.

Damn old(er) age anyways! 🥴

What is your opinion for on the Hackmoto for reverse applications? Do you happen to know if it has any timing advance? I want to order one but could not find any specific info this. Thanks.
