Exclamation Bender's latest FOFF Build

Here's a little sneak peek at my latest Formula Offroad build. It is featured in the 100th issue of RC Driver magazine. I will post up more on this build soon. For more info on this build now, grab the latest issue of RC Driver. A big thanks to Ty Giebel (aka Turtle) for doing the write-up and photos, there are some epic shots in this article!

Links to blog articles:
FOFF SCX10 in 100th Issue of RC Driver
Axial Racing - Rat Rod Formula Off Road Build

Basic Specs:
Axial SCX10 chassis, transmission and axles
Castle brushless system
Axial 2.2 beadlock wheels
Panther paddle tires
Axial Rat Rod body

Now it's time to find some sand and shoot some video.

I haven't even driven it yet.

Yeah, we need to scout a new location. It looks like Allred is being turned into Alton drive lately.

Don't kick yourself too hard, it took a fair amount of cutting to get this body to sit right. Then I had to cut clearance holes for the shocks, shock towers and steering servo in the front hood section of the body. It took a while to get it right. But, it was worth it to me. I love the overall stance of it now.

Yeah, that seems to be a much more narrow body than the Rubicon though. I'm expecting some cutting to get it to work and clear the paddles.

I will be posting more details on this build soon, here and on Axial's blog, as well as some video. I just need to find a new location to run it.
