Default Harley's Wraith #2 - Built for Vanquish


Finally getting a start on the next build! I know my Wraith isn't done yet either but I need to get moving on this rig as well. Going to try something new and do a video build series. I'll still do regular pictures and updates but the videos will allow me to get a little more into the details.

Video #1

The parts list is sure to be impressive. I still have lots to add to it, as well as modify some of what's listed. I pulled most of it from my thread.

So what are these new brake kits? Just that rotor look or an actual functional brake?

They are for scale appearance. There is no point in adding a functional brake kit to a 1:10 electric car with the electronics we have available.

Hope to do the weekly video tonight and have it up tomorrow. I'm trying to think of it will be on. Since the metal work is what I'll be doing first I might go over the process and tools I use for that.

Hoping to get down to the shop again tonight and work on this. If I can finish the metal work tonight I'll be set to do tomorrow's video on assembly of the axles and bolting it all up to the chassis.

I ordered up the MadDogRC 5" light bar for it as well as the SuperShafty top shaft and Robinson slipper.

I need to put my final list together for the parts I will need to wrap it up. It's the little things that sneak up on you.
