Luckily, I can swap the mount that I made and if that doesn't work, I can always make new mounts. Thanks for the tip.

I know that many have done so, but I didn't want to do that since it makes it easier toget stuck from axels when crawling in the rocks.

3rd day in the garage and the broken servo horn is now fixed
Seriously the remaking of the LEDs was easier and harder than previously, wires and soldering was easier and I'm happy with the outcome, but to get everything neatly in place, especially the cables in the receiver box, that was hard.

Btw, those are some damn bright leds, whites are 40000mcd and reds are 50000 mcd, whites are cut to 50mA and reds are cut to 20mA with resistors.

I left one open connector for upcoming light project, but it could be that there just isn't anymore space for the extra male connector in the box...

Cutting the gage was fun and I like the outcome, even tough it is rather common mod.

I could really feel the lowered CoG when quickly spinning out in the grass.

Next probably surfing and planning of 4WDS with CMS, has any one done or seen that done?

I replaced those originals shifters with switches that control the ESC and the other one is reserved for upcoming light project.

I really like the switch idea! What switches did you purchase for that?

Your wraith looks great!

Thanks, the switch is from Clas Ohlson (Miniature Toggle Switch - CLAS OHLSON | Clas Ohlson)
I just used heat shrink tube in it.

So tidy. I like how you did the LEDs, no hanging wires what so ever.
How are the reservoir shocks working?

Thanks, I can't tell, I mean the speed I het from my orion in stock gearing, it really isn't that much that I could tell the difference in shocks.

I actually wonder how much speed I should get from Orion vortex crawler 21.5T 3S setup? Does anu know what KV is for that motor.

I found out how to embed the youtube videos, here they are again if you missed those before:





You have to put the code in the quick edit, if do with advanced edit, then it doesn't work!?

I've seen that video. Some people were talking how they don't even fill their shocks the right way, so I don't find that video to be so good.

Just ordered needed parts for 4WDS, including the VP Panhard, lets see how easy it is to get the rear servo CMS...

Just learned that my motor is probably between 1200-1800 KV, no wonder it feels bit slow, even with 3S, compared to those arund 4000KV motors, might try 4S at some point.

Thanks for the nice vids, beautiful area to run! Must be some good mountain bike trails there too. Anymore pictures of the area?

Thanks, the sandpit video is actually shot in ski-resort that serves as a freeriding/downhill biking centre in the summer more info (Calpis Bike Park), the first one is shot at my parents summer cottage

The one that I have started to shoot is in our home town and yes all of those places have some really nice trails for biking as well.

Switch to a Tekin Redline 13,5T or even the Tekin Pro4 3300KV you won't be dissapointed. I have the 13,5T for now, but might go for the Pro4.

I've seen few videos w Pro4 and the crawling capabilities didn't convince, I'd like to be able to crawl properly.

Looks like a great place to do some crawling. Nice rig with your own personal touches added to it. Very COOL!!

Finally got the lightbar installed, it was bit tricky, while I was trying to minimize the number of wires running in the roof.


I also got good use of extra piece that I cut from the cage

Not yet decided if I am going to use the roof or not, kind of like without.

Now waiting for my 4WDS parts to arrive...and need to find place to purchase CC BEC, preferably in Europe.
