Default Starting my Capra build today

I am starting my Capra build today, I downloaded the new instruction manual and I was hoping someone could point my to a solid video that goes over the other problem spots in the build, axle bearings that aren't there, DIG issues and anything else I need to move ahead. This is my first Axial kit in 8ish years and I have and am building several other trucks, Tekno, Baja Rey re-build etc...so I am no green, just haven't built an axial crawler in ages and I know there are some issues with this on. Thanks, E

This one is helpful.

I’m almost done with mine, just waiting on electronics. The updated manual is pretty clear.

One thing I’m not sure they fixed is the scale of the parts on the left side, so just be aware when your picking up screws.

Just go over the Manual and start building. Easy install if using the recommended dig servo. Assembly of Tranny and Portal is kind alogical, but night be a bit challenging even fr the experienced with the new design. Anyways, post-up pictures as build progress. -- to appreciate, give and receive comments, suggestions, and share Good Idea. Cheers!

Or, if using TapTalk, you can upload photos directly from within the app.

Star members can host their pictures on RCC .... Non star members can post pictures using links from other hosting locations.

Tapatalk users can post pictures being non star and star members because they are hosted on Tapatalk servers.


Hope that helps.

Have fun with the build edjo69. I'm getting ready to start my build very soon too.

Just to be sure, this manual on the Horizon Hobby page is the most up-to-date version to use, right guys? It has a revision date of 10/19 so I'm guessing yes.

Glad you brought this up. I was kinda wondering the same thing myself. On page 31 G5, it seems they indicate the wrong screws for attaching the light bar and firewall?
