Default Fubar Skooter build.. AWCC Tested!

Since nobody really knew who I was at the AWCC and I received a few inquiries as to what I was running and where was I from. I figured it was finally time to do an "almost completed" build thread.

Considering it is still my rookie year driving and this chassis was put together the week before AWCC, I didn't go into the comp with any sort of expectation. I was shocked at how well the rig did! The chassis walked away with a 3rd place finish in Pro. The link geometry really suits the terrain that is common out here in AZ .




Specs:
FXR
45T Integy's
Rovers
Custom Foam Set-up using stock Rovers and some cheap mattress foam
7955
50/50 Droop-Sprung
Eritex Wheels
KK Steering link
Integy Links
DX3R
Usual Stuff...

Here are some pics from Awcc courtesy of the Rcc live coverage





Considering I received numerous comments that this rig looks like it got beat with an ugly stick. I decided to contact briansbodies about a new lid.




Body off shots:




Thanks again MtHead for the awesome chassis and Brian for the paint!

Thanks for looking

Man I didn't even see that you were running that there. Great driving.

I'm getting ready to put the skooter on my berg also. And retire my old chassis before it was the skeeter.

Thanks! I was suprised... 1stockliberty took 8th with another one of these Skooters...They definately held their own.

The narrow setup works well, are you going with the outboarded links?

Lookin good. Nice job at AWCC. Are your beadlocks missing screws or are they just stainless and I can't see them?

Looking good Kolby and congrats on your WCC finish. I usually catch hell for only running half hardware in my wheels but it looks like a real man only needs three screws per ring Can't wait for the rocks down your way cool off...
