Well after much messing with sub trim and end points the DIG is working fine (on the bench anyway)

Looking forward to giving it a proper test on Wednesday

Getting here late...

The front tire wiggle wasn't fixed completely by new bearings. It just helped a lot.

Shimming or possibly aluminum knuckles should do the trick.

Complete for now. I still need to add interior details and dash lights. Also a driver, does anyone know what size I need?

Check this out. I set a Baja Rey body on the GOM and the wheelbase looks really close. Does anyone have an Axial trophy truck body they could put on their GOM for a picture? I think the retro Axial trophy truck body might look good with the GOM's solid front axle. Imagine it with smaller tires...

I just bought a Yeti TT. I'll see when I have time to open it.

Took the GOM for a test run in the woods, it was fun.

It needs better tyres, heavier wheels and a little more speed but even as it is it handled everything I put at it.

Need to get the gear and dig shift a little more reliable too.

It would also be nice if the sway bar was adjustable in some way so that it could easily be set for crawling or speed without having to remove it but that may have to be a homemade mod

My replacement CVA set came in today...

They even sprung for fast shipping from Korea. That is excellent service. I'm on my second set before RPP has even stocked them.

Hopefully this set holds up. I'm going to go easy, but I was going easy last time when they bent.

I've added aluminum wheels and new tires including a matching spare.

I had to take a breather on the GOM. It was really turning into a pain. Nothing to do with the quality of the kit or it's parts. Just small things. Everytime I took it out something came up.

Popping a bead on a tire, bending a new cva stub shaft, stock servo horn stripping, shift servo screw coming loose.


And most recently my shift servo started moving on it's own. Randomly and very glitch like.

Any ideas for that one?

Getting to it is a pain and I've already done it twice this week.

Interested to hear how your new CVAs hold up. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates you being the guinea pig for this

Tempted with getting one of these as my next kit. I assume I need a 3 position 3rd channel. Does the DIG shift from 4x4 to FWD, so the rear is just freewheeling ? Can you shift 1st to 2nd whilst in FWD or does it remain in 4X4....trying to figure out how 1 shift servo could do it all...sorry for the questions its the first time Ive come across a DIG.

Was thinking of running this brushed and as a trail/crawler....would the kit with no upgrades cope with a HW1080/Traxxas 21T and 3S ? I have a bomber with brushless and a Yeti TT if I want to go fast....

If you set your end points correctly.. the rear locks in DIG.

Forward is high gear 4wd. Neutral/middle is low gear 4wd. Back is low gear 2wd with locked rear wheels.

Superb thank you. So if I only had a 2 position 3rd channel I can choose between 1 & 2 gear or 1st and DIG...:-)
