Default What did you do to your Bomber today?

I can't believe this thread hasn't been started yet.

I got a package from RRP Hobby today. I got a Vanquish Stage 1 kit (knuckles, chubs, and clamping lockouts), two sets of Beef Tubes, Vanquish front links (upper and lower), and a KNK stainless fastener kit. Everything is now installed except the stainless fasteners. I'm just doing a few of those at a time.

I converted my Bomber to 3 wheel drive last Friday evening. I'm waiting on a set of front axles to fix it.

I installed my SSD front axle with HD gears and ordered a Mamba Monster X (thanks to Screamer for showing me more ways to spend my $$).

Hopefully my UCFab trailing arms and RC4X4 links will be here tomorrow so it will be ready for the G6 this Saturday.

Gave it to my 5 yr old son, since he kept saying how much he liked it


Cheers,

Is that just slid into the "Fuel Tank"?

Any more detail pix?

Swapped over a different set of wheels and tires. The combination of the wider offset on the wheels and the tires being a bit wider makes this thing much more stable. Definitely ramped up the fun factor.

Put some CI Dueces Wild foams in the RC4WD IROK's, now I can actually turn a corner without rolling over. The stock foams that came with the IROK's was so soft that every time I made a turn with any speed faster than a walk the tires rolled under and it would try to roll. I can actually side hill now too...

And I just found a set of Grip Fab ARB lockers and VP knuckles/CHubs that I will install when I make links... I also plan on a servo winch.
This is going to be a crawler... I need to decide on a powerplant.

Playing around with a HD bumper idea a bit. Made from solid 1/4" steel rod, and will use the stock mounting spots.

Just slammed a traxxas 775 summit motor into the beast. 18t pinion on 2s everything is ice cold. And almost twice as quick as stock.

My replacement front axle shafts came today. I have them installed and now my Bomber is ready to go again. I'll keep my Bomber away from the water meter box next time.

I will be installing Dlux lower front links and rear trailing arms this evening. I am tying to decide on power for it. Currently it has the Vanguard 3150kv from a Yeti with the Axial 2 speed and 43/13 gearing, but it doesn't go slow enough to crawl well without cogging and is too fast on the top end. Using 12/64 gearing currently.

Does that 10T motor crawl well? I was considering the 21T Titan motor as other reported it works ok.

It works pretty good, lots of torque and speed. And all the low speed control of a brushed motor. Just running it on a velenion esc, I would like a crawler esc with a little better low end control.

I did have to modify my motor plate to make it fit. 4mm screws and they are a little wider than a 540 can motor.

swapped out the 35turn for a 20 turn. don't know how long it will last, but a lot faster. maybe too fast to crawl. but she's a jumper now!
