Default Machete Enduro Build

Just wanted to make a thread showing off my personal GMRC Machete builds and to answer anyoneís questions.

Have 2 different builds.

White one started strictly as a swap over and was used mostly for the testing and development of the parts. This truck is basically used for comps now. Currently has a 2700kv stubby and micro x but swapping out to a out runner. Iíll make a more informed post on the progression and have more pics.




The red one was kind of a accident. I won a mamba x system at a local comp series with the truck above and did some trading for a capra. I hate working and wrenching on caged chassisíd rigs so decided to rob the axles our from it. This one is more of the trailing performance rig. Events like shred the ledge and such...



Granted Iím not running element axles I still feel like these are elements. Running the stealth x in both rigs along with crossmembers, mounts and some links. Way I look at it is itís no different than buying go axles for a 10.2??

I see, you cut off the shock tower but kept the panhard mount. Does that hold up good? Was thinking about a different chassis for my Enduro as well. Is it a significant upgrade in performance?

I ran it at shred the ledge for a good 6 hours straight beating on it on purpose...broke a rod end but the panhard did hold up. Itís definitely not the most solid setup but would get you by.

I have since updated the chassis so it accepts Team
Garage Hack goodies like the panhard and cms mount. Also accepts the Vanquish cms mount as well as the element ones out there.






As for performance, itís defiantly a increase. The belly on the stock rig is really high. A complete bolt over to the chassis using my flat skid I was yielding 60+ degrees vertically and side hills very well.




Hereís a pic of it with the stocker body for reference.

Thatís why you get multiple ones! Haha. If Iím out of stock just shoot me a message. Been a crazy few weeks with house shopping/buying.
