Default Capra 2.2

I have had about 4 days with this beast, the platform is amazing the instructions and included parts not so much.

Working on the upload pics. Not sure if anyone else caught the missing Bearing in the rear axle tube, this and a couple Hicups in the destructions + a couple missing parts made this a process. I have been out of the hobby for a couple + years but what a transition. ALRIGHT enough with that, I have had in order Clod Crawler built full cage chassis, Bully MOA when the were the ride, some scale when everyone went to scale, but not my thing. When you are counting on a winch to rescue you in a toy truck WTF! I enjoy trying to build stuff and have fun making stuff better. Pic attached if it works is of the modded axle shaft to accept the portal inner bearing.
Let's see if this works

I was shorted 1- 5x13x4 bearing and supplied with 1- 5x14x4 bearing with the kit and did not get the dig servo base adapter to complete dig. I have got mine together will need to replace steering servo which should be here today and I'm missing one pair of tires which did not arive with my order. Let me know what you think.

If Iím thinking about the right part for the dig servo, that part only comes with the recommended Spectrum servo.

Apparently the online manual corrects a bunch of really bad mistakes. Spread the word.

I like that you turned the rear axle shaft down to fit an extra bearing in there. Seems weird to me that its not "supposed" to be there.

Great looking Capra, love the shade of blue!
What tyres are those, please? Look like the Good-Year MTs which used to be on Hummers.
Almost tempted to buy a Capra but I've already got a Bomber

Did not make any sense to not have one there, it can't hurt.

I got my hands on one of these last week at Scale Mountian R/C park, my first thought was Heavy? When I got my kit I found the culprit, Steel links well placed down low but had to change something. Made some rear links out of 5/16 delrin to transfer some weight forward

Can anyone see the other change, I made to this rig? Not the drive shafts.

Are you running your diffs as low pinions?

Yup. Complains about heavy links and then runs steel drivelines and alloy wheels...

The modded rear axles seems like a good touch, just hard to say how necessary it is with how new these portals are. The delrin links look clean, did you weigh them compared to stock?

Well to be fair if you swap the rear driveshaft out for the wildboar again, won't that be following the theme?

It'd help at least.

I'd thought about dropping a cheezberger trans in my capra and flipping the rear 3rd but that's as fast as that thought went.

Not complaining, just stating where the weight was. Please stop making fun of my toy truck.

Got to run it for a short time today, should have put it 1.9 since that was what I have ran at the spot but it did well. As did my first set of F9's
