Aight i'm back home.

I got the tranny TONIGHT. i opened up the package and what did i find???? the posts on one side of he case are chopped off :-(. Not COOL. the guy i bought it from forgot to mention that i guess.

oh well i'll order a new case from the local hobby store and now that i got the internals i should be able to keep going.

so here it is.

The pics are next to my comp crawler.









The chassis DIM's are as follows:
-1-5/8" that right 1.625" WIDE
-8.25" long
-3" to the top of the tranny.

and i got the motor mount idea from Don's build. everythgin else i did. I've been trying to come up with a WK comp chassis for a while. This one gets the weight up front ALOT.....I LIKE IT.

Aussie Nerd, check out www.crawlerx.net and www.eastendmachining.com for WK plates like the one above.


I like this build! IMO, the DNA-style motor mount is going to spur lots of people's interest in the WK again. This build is the 3rd I've seen using that motor mount design...I wonder if anyone is going to produce just the motor mount for sale (ahem...that's a HINT people)?

Thanks anyway

The motor mount plate is tied in to the chassis. I dont think you would want the motor to float like that without having chassis support. You would probably get to much twist and damage running gear.

I think the front mount plate is in the design stage. It will require modifications to the axle housing.

Just getting my shop cleaned up so I can start working on it with Kraqa again

the chassis might have to move further back. shorten the rear links lengthen the fronts.

i will post the pics tomorrow of the completed chassis and suspension.

Default Sombody robbed my train of thought...

I had the exact same idea for the motor placement in relation to the spur gear, but I was also thinking that it would further lower the center of gravity if the whole motor - transmission assembly was mounted on its side. The motor would be slightly off center, but that could be counter weighted somehow with battery or electronics placement.

What are other peoples' ideas on this concept?
