the muscle, yup, making all of it myself. I would say the tube frame is about 90% ready for being brazed. Yesterday I narrowed my wheels. Haven't been able to put too much time into recently because of mid terms.

you need help child.
Links are very simple to make with threaded rod and metal tubing and do-bro link ends.
as for drive shafts traxxas stampede shafts work. you may need to slightly modify them, but it is easy too.
hope this helps. i live close to you in El Cajon, I'm in North Park.

Just finishing up work on a TLT crawler to go along with my TXT. I am ready to hit some rocks. Glad to lend a hand and any spare parts.

raul duke, lets see some pics : )

i think the biggest weak link i have seen on my tlt is the chassis plate i use to bolt in the tranny. It's essentially a piece of scrap metal that you can buy in the roofing section of home depot. It seems strong enough, but because it is so thin, My screws hang out and will be really easy to get snagged and what not. What are you guys using for your skid plate? I've heard about the delrin, and perhaps i will do that if i cant find a better alternative and my current stuff dies , but i think the biggest issue for my roommate (who is also building) and i has been finding a decent chassis plate.

i like to use cuttingboard for skidplate. It is thick enough to countersink your screws into for a flush fit.

and Kmoore, age is relative. what is old?

i am using the stock chassis. i think you should be able to build a capable beginer crawler out of it even if the belt slips and all. i just want too have fun right now. i have the pede tranny waiting for a chassis when that time comes.

Don and I spent the day racing our t4's in my backyard, it was a blast.
My TLT "the borrego" is still waiting for the motor can to come back from Holmes Hobbies before it is ready to go. My TXT just needs to have the servo installed for rear steer and it is ready. And the other TLT I'm building is coming along nicely, it is a complete roller today.
Tomorrow I'm going surfing.
