Default Dlux utb18

Picked up a slider and got my Dlux order placed. Just built it. Greased all the gears. Steel TGH trans gears. Has Treal OD gears up front and TGH stock machined gears in the rear. Treal axle housings.

Just sharing some pics. Any questions feel free to ask.

Very Cool! I've had my eye one these so I'm interested to hear how it does.

I didn't like the rear drive shaft angle. it just didn't look right to me so I went back to the stock skid. I will see how it does over the weekend.

That does look like a pretty steep angle in the rear. Some angled skids use an angled shim to get the transmission to level out.

Assuming by the pics youíre running a Holmes 380 Revolver? What esc are you planning on using? Still deciding if I want to go with a Holmes 380 Revolver/Crawlmaster Mini V2 or the Furitek system. Mine is nowhere near as modded and Iím likely not going to push it to its limits very often. I did pick up some Zee 650mah 100c 3s packs that are just a wee bit smaller that the rtr 2s battery so wonít be needing to modify the stock battery tray. Btw, loving the tire choice! I almost went with those but got the class 1 3.93 JConcepts Tusks. Just waiting to order the TGH trans gears, motor/esc, and servo.

I am going to run a CC Mamba micro 2. I have some 3 cell 450 I am going to run. I need to print a battery mount somewhere. I might ditch the cab and run a body. I have a bug body I am going to paint up this weekend.
