Default I don't fawk around.

Bought a bomber from a guido guy that lived on the Jersey shore and it arrived today. I take lots of pics but unless specifically asked to do a step by step I'm too busy wrenching to get more than parts and major assemblies. This will be no different, for now basics, later there will be write ups about parts and pieces.


The rig had some good parts on it to get the party started. VP links, ssd high ratio transmission, mips, VP stage 1 kit etc. It came with a Holmes hv500, roc 412 2300 and an mmp.






I've been collecting a few parts along the way lately in preparation for this rig. Dlux brass knuckles, Ti tie rod, aluminum hubs for the big 8mm stubs attached to FBA axle shafts. Picked up a 3brothers G13 too but that's for another day.




Rc3wd iroks on CI 1.5" wheels and 6" CI comp cut medium front/hard rear.

Nova's Ark, JENS and soze like this.

The axles are stock other than the stage 1 kit and vvds. Forgot to get a rock jock diff cover so I just installed the rear axle today since the rear gears were about shot and the silver diff had UD gears already.

I robbed this axle and slapped in ar60 tubes with creeperbob Ti axles.





I had to rewire the mmp & motor so while the iron was hot I added a jst lead and xt60 battery plug. That plug will become important later.



She's a runner so now the suspension tuning fun begins. It's a fun rig, I look forward to beating on it and doing destructive testing.

Them're some bad-ass parts, my man...

Especially the Dlux brass knuckles, 8mm stubs, FBA axle shafts, and Creeper Bob Ti axles!

Should be a nasty one.

Oh it'll be stupid alright. I have a 2350 1/8 scale 4 pole sensored motor to shove 6s into ig I wanna get really ignorant.


These axles are more of a stop gap until the new hotness gets developed. Should set the U4 and hardcore ar60 basher market on fire.

Nobody put a dash of dirty whore in anything now-a-days, it’s used more as a garnish. I want FBAs for my bomber, but I can’t decide on wheels...

Surprisingly enough the bomber jumped ok but needed an anti roll bar out back in the worst way. Also found a problem with a shock while I was refilling them with oil. Somewhere along the line someone must have over filled the shock, likely to prolong the intervals between the refilling process ( ) and then jumped the rig hard. There are 2 splits in the shock body itself.



Soooo I robbed the proline pro spec shocks off a project U4 I'm building for someone (2661 big horse were just ordered today for it that rig) and refilled them with 20 front and 35 wt rear oil and plopped a UCfab anti roll bar on it.



Suspension seems good, I'll find out this weekend.

I'm not seeing the split in the shock body, but that's insane!

Those Proline shocks are awesome. I have them on my SMT10.

That line just to the left of the glare is a split. There is another one that is in the glare above the adjuster collar. I filled the shock slightly too much and compressed it only to watch oil run down the side. I was confused for a split second and then I had to laugh. Rc3wd quality strikes again!

Ah I see it now. And I didn't realize those weren't the stock Axial shocks until you said it. RC4WD you dunnit again. Tell me why, again, that RC4WD stuff costs more than Integy?

You got me. It all comes from the same factories.


When I popped open the first shock (to refill with known weight oil so I had a baseline) I noted how thick the body of the shock was and had a thought of finding or having pistons made for them and keeping them on the rig since they looked durable enough. Turns out that thickness is needed to make up for the alumargerine they cast the bodies out of.

Had a minute this am so I ran the rig in the parking lot jumping a speed bump.

It jumps better for sure but the front springs are too stiff so the front end is at near full extension at all times. Poking around it looks like these are rather popular shocks. Guess about $50 in a big spring pack and m2c pistons will do'r.
