Yeah, crawl only. It probably will be geared for ~8mph. I'm hoping the torsion from the long outboard lever won't be too bad. The BP Custom servo on axle mount will probably help at the front, I wonder if some sort of truss can be made for the rear.

Also, my motor is sensored.

Project update Post #2

I received, built, and installed my new shocks, the other day. Gmade XD Piggyback, 93mm front and 103mm rear. I also went ahead and got some hard springs for them in anticipation of the weight of this truck when it's finished.



I also put 40w oil in the front with 4-hole pistons and 50w with 2-hole pistons in the rear. Suspension action feels very nice and I think I have plenty of up-travel with the shorter shocks up front. I also really like how the reservoirs peek out of the rear side panels.


A friend recently gave me a screaming deal on a 2-3 pack old Mamba X with a 1415 2400kV sensored motor, so I put it in. It should be great for 3s, I suppose. I definitely intend to go 4s, though.


And then it goes in this (along with 4s)...

As far as a truss team knk ar44 axle truss, might be a option, comes in brass or aluminum seen someone else ask about it so I looked it up.

Yeah, I've looked at the KNK trusses. The thing I like about the BP Customs mount is that it ties into both screws on each link mount. It seems like it would offer a bit more support. I definitely like the idea of the brass truss, though.

It's probably going to get mounted under the dash. I'm also considering putting it on the Wertymade winch plate if I can mount the winch further forward on the plate.

Slow progress over the last 2 months due to finances. Things should be back on track soon enough, though. I've got a new set of wheels, a slipper eliminator, and a bunch of scale hardware coming from Locked Up RC.

There's still a lot of money to spend on this project, and I think I have a name for it...The Bawleur. The "B" is for the Bomber platform, the "awl" part for the crawler-focused intent, and the "-eur" ending comes from bicycle building when someone builds a no-expense-spared bike and calls it a "balleur build" to bring in a French (as in Tour de France) influence.

Thanks! It's coming together slowly, but nicely. Sway bar is from J.E.C. Racing...same as the trailing arms.

I think he's been out of stock for a while. Try emailing him. Easy guy to deal with and I've got 2 pairs of trailing arms, the anti-roll bar, and rear shock mounts from him. I'm planning on getting some trailing arms for my Baja Rey eventually.
