Sorry, should have included this in the last post:

A photo from the front of the axle to show how the linkage connects to the arm. A ball stud goes into the original lower shock mount, and another ball stud in the sway bar arm.



Then a link I made by connecting two ball sockets with a 1.5mm all-thread. That link connnects the arm to the axle.

That's awesome, believe it or not I was just thinking about what rear suspension tweaks might help that situation...

Glad that could help. There's lots of ways to do a home made sway bar, but at least we now know a way to do it with the Losi LMT sway bar.

Unexpected change: since I now won't have too much flex at the rear axle, I removed the internal limiters for the rear shocks returning them to 100mm in length.

I'm still using the springs from the 90mm shocks with the same pre-load settings so my ride height stays the same. And since the sway bar is there, the extra down travel only really kicks in when the truck is airborne or at least very light on the suspension.

I've kept the front shocks limited to 90mm.

My Bronco won't keep up with your Element on the rocks, but it'll toast you in the desert!

Well, I finally made the jump to brushless. That's because I took the Bronco out for some crawling, and after several torque heavy situations, my Bronco had smoke pouring out of the front fenders. Fortunately, it was just the stock, 35t motor finally dying.

I drove from the crawl spot to my hobby shop and got the Spektrum 2 in 1, 2300kv system.



Since the 10.3 came with that ESC / RX 2 in 1 unit, that meant I also needed a new RX. In went the Spektrum SR315, 3 channel RX. Since I was already buying a new brushless system, I didn't also want to buy a new 4 or 5 channel radio.



So my new electronics layout has the battery centered between the chassis rails on the rear tray. The RX is on one fender, power switch on the other fender and nothing on the sliders.



After it was all back together, I finished the crawling session the toasted motor cut short:

The end of the video will hopefully show you that this Bronco is NOT a shelf queen.

The Bronco has held up great! 2 years in (I think) and I've never broken anything on it, except for toasting the stock motor eventually.

And mine spends a lot of time in 2WD / 2nd gear. The suspension is tuned to look very scale (10WT oil), so driving it is quite satisfying. I spent 2 years adding scale details and driving it. I thinks you'll find it to be a fun project truck that's great to drive.

And to justinart24, I agree. I think it's the most scale looking truck Axial produced. And they gave us everything with this model; roll cage, inner fenders, full interior, lights... I was always surprised that it didn't sell better. But everyone who waited and scored them for $300 lucked out.

I'll post a few photos eventually, as I have made a few changes. Most notably, a winch.
