I didnít get much done today, but did finish up the front axle. I started by making a servo mount out of 3mm carbon. It is held to the axle with 3 screws and red loctite.

Then I fired up the dremel again and made a battery tray for behind the motor. It will it will use a piece of inner tube for a strap aswell as get covered in velcro.

I also added steering stops to the axles using a 3mm spacer and button head screw which can be seen in the previous pictures. I figured out that a straight xr10 tie rod is an almost perfect fit with the Dlux knuckles and his proper ackerman arms. I put a slight bend at both ends to bring the tie rod closer to the gearbox and called it good.

After running lots of different shorter and smaller diameter motors I feel the weight loss isnít worth the low end power and control.

I totally agree with this. The set of Team motors i had Eddie at Brood build me are in standard size cans (i think?). I think smooth start up is the most important thing when crawling and bigger can are just better. Big cans and skewed arms!!

Oh, by the way...Have you tried the single bend links? If so, how are you liking them?

Iíve been running a really shallow bend (like less than 1inch vertical height difference) rear lower for a long time. My xr needs a double bend lower link though since the shocks and links are in the same hole. Iím going single bend front and rear on both this truck and my superlite truck which I still need to build.

The brass weight holders are actually supposed to go on the other
way, but you can probably get away with running them that way...
