Default Kincer's Sawback

I picked this up a while back as a roller and put it in the garage and got it mobile this week, added the roll bar, new bumper and winch. Got some deep dish wagon wheels on the way. Running Axial electronics with a DS3218 Pro servo. Have a few more upgrades on the way, wish the TF2 was as good as this on leaf springs lol. Not too familiar with these so is there anything that needs attention on these?

Basically just a trail truck, want to get a driver and scale out the body with some goodies and just run it.

Probably ebay, Amazon. I'm not sure of Sportsman Warehouse sells them anymore. It took me awhile to find Hunter Ann (the girl) kinda pricey.

Sweet Sawback! Wheels and tires are perfect.

I love my Sawbacks. They are so fun! I suggest the GMade anti roll bars, or you can make your own, if youíre as hard on leaf springs as I am.

You can also move the tie rod up for more clearance like I did in my thread.

Iíve also been using Hunter Dan as my driver for a long time. Heís originally from Cabelaís if I remember correctly, but they were sold online as well.

Thanks Jato, I did the anti wrap bars front and rear, also moved the tie rod up, found both Hunter Dan and Ann today on ebay lol, I'm guessing the plastic trans gears hold up as I haven't found metal ones?

Youíre welcome. Iíve never had a problem with the gears. They are loud, but durable in my experience. My first Sawback started off with a 17.5T brushless system. Iíd even jump it. Only ever had to replace leaf springs.

Well done! I do like an old flat fender in red...just something about them. The stock look with the white rims is perfection.

Someone did a super scale version of one of these with a canvas top an all...can't seem to find it now.

I know it's a little late and my knit-picking nature is coming out, but I think your gas tank sticker should be higher. A 3D printed gas tank filler insert, would be a perfect addition. It wouldn't even be too difficult to scratch one out of styrene.

It looks terrific over all and should be a lot of fun.

Thanks man, I like the rims but I'm swapping them for some white wagon wheels right now, I'll have some new pics up shortly, I'm not done with the body quite yet that's how I bought it, been focusing on the drivetrain first, have a bunch of stuff on the way, including a driver and passenger. I may go back to the steel rims not sure yet.

Changed up the rims, I think these work out good for this rig too!
