OK, back on topic.

A package was delivered to the cave today.

RC4WD Hitman 2.2s


Clearance with Wraith hexes and Exo knuckles.




...and a more updated tool has been acquired.

It works well.

The soldering class I taught for the military used a similar set-up. Two clips on a stand for basic connections and repairs.

Once you learn how to manage them and place things, they're a real time-saver.

When you get the tires mounted I'm curious to see what your track width ends up.

I'll get measurements when I get the actual tires I'll be mounting to these on hand.

For now I stuck a couple of the Ripsaws on to see what it will look like with the Hitmans.

I like it.

Those look awesome. What's the outside width with the Ripsaws if you have a minute? I ask 'cause that's what i'm using.

Thanks

Front: 12 5/8"
Rear: 11 3/4"

That's with stock Wraith hexes.

I've got some hex hubs on the way to adjust track width out back.

Scale build, scale tires. Keepin the Ripsaws - they work so well.

I have rear steer. Width isn't a huge concern as far as steering goes. I do want the wider track for high-speed stability.

And I'm OCD.
