Default badgravity's buggies ...

Since i like driving safaries with my gf. and my clod based stick crawler's were morally outdated.
Because we like look of scale trucks but prefere the good driveability ( excluding anything axial )
We decided to get two complete R1's with some goodies and with some detailing start from there.

I usually dont build according to specs ... so some first small modifications were made to both of them:
new lower battery trays, winch, interrior, electronic under hood and some chassis mod's.

First safari 2010 ( more pics here )



then i somehow year later decided that the stock form has outlived it's life ... and i dont drive stock ...
so i made new frame for my crawler leaving all other parts mostly same ( shocks, links, gearbox etc. )
And what could be cooler than Tim Cameron's former "Fat Girl" ?



But it didnt go well with my gf. .... so i had to make her buggy as cool as mine.
So after some web searching she decided that Doc Nazir's Blower Buggy would be perfect ....
so on with the same recepie ... leave all stock and build just the frame:



And here's the first safari 2011: ( more pics here )


Buggies specs are:

Gmade R1
Gmade bent links
Gmade beefy tierods
Gmade metal driveshafts
Gmade Rear steering kit
Rc4wd killer transfercase
Proline TSL 2.2
3Racing winch
Mamba max
Traxxas tx/rx
Hitech 645
integgy 35t
2s Li-ion 2200mAh packs only

feel free to ask any pics or specs ... and i will keep you updated with new safari pictures

Completely awesome!

The blower buggy is killer. Do you have a problem with articulation with the axel mounted servos hitting the chassis?

Thankyou No servo will hit the frame because sides are not actually identical - on the servo side the frame is raised to fit the servo.
And both rig's are on droop shock setup.

Thankyou

The green one was almost stock ... with some bars cut out and some interior with driver figure.
Also the electronics was underhood.

Since both buggies are on the heavy side ... these shocks lack the adjustability. On droop they bottom out and almost same on the normal setup.
Also they leak ... so there will be upgrade to rc4wd coilovers someday.

And i'm not sure about Novak brushless 550 setup anymore on the F-Girl
