Nice machining! How do you like MasterCAM? We just purchased FeatureCAM at work, and the demo looked pretty promising.

Mastercam is awesome. I have only been using it for 6 months now and taught myself on it. Of course I have a background in other software but this is my fav thus far for programming.

Default Crawling pics added...DUW

Finally had a chance to take this thing out for some more testing now that the rain has given me a break. Still more mods to come but overall this thing performed great!...especially considering I have yet to replace the stock tires...have some masher 2k's at the shop to put on once I get my new wheels cut.

Thats a good looking buildup. Like the way you did the upper 4 link mounts on the axle.

Default Update...new shoes and stuff!!! (wheels and tires)

Well I have now swapped out my servo mount for my new design, shortened the w.b. so it can compete, and finally got around to making my wheels and mounting up some new rubber. Each wheel with tire weighs in at 13.7 ounces with current foams. No extra weights needed.

Now I desperately have to start updating my electronics (especially since I fried my ESC this weekend at the Disney Comp.)...wires will be neatly tucked away upon the installation of the new go goodies. Also, my comp truck will be receiving a new skid plate and transmission transplant in the very near future.

More to come...

I really like those rims. Are you planning on making any of those products available for purchase in the future? Thanks.

Torque twist is minimal (due to stiff springs, some fuel tubing, and some 100 weight shock oil). Thanks!
