Default !!! The super shafty back yard basher !!!

all right folks, i've been wanting to build me a monster truck, bash around kind of rig for a while now. so after talking to rick he said he may have something i would be interested in. after some back and forth i finally got my hands on this prototype chassis from www.supershafty.com and boy was i impresses in the quality of this outfit! i plan on taking a lot of pics and asking the "old pro's" for advice since i have never built anything like this before. photo bucket is acting up right now, pic's to come soon.

seeing this stout axle come together never gets old

now i plan on running two short sides and here is a couple videos from www.supershafty.com that will show some of the assemble of the axles. first is the straight axle tube adapters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlNAL2tclUs and here is a video on cutting down the axles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qWuuSVe-7E now im not going 2.2 on this rig but this is good info when cutting.

first pic shows where i had to cut

now after i made this cut and got everything cleaned up i noticed that the hub carriers fit a lot tighter in the cut side so i had to do a little sanding on the hub carrier's to get them to fit, after that it's good to go.

i still need to take the front axle apart and put the shark fin on and mount the servo mount. but that's all i got done so far. here are a few pics of what the rig will look like once it's done...i hope

DROOL.

V84x4 did a fine job on this one!!! that chassis looks awesome.
this almost looks like a KOH chassis!!! it could also be worked into a foff as well.

Yes he did, and it will probably have some foff encounters! Not sure on the wb yet, but since it wont have rear steer im thinking the shorter the better.

I can not take credit for this Chassis rather
the design & concept comes from SnoopMaxx back in 2008!!

I was browsing threw hundreds of threads one day when i came across this:
Formula off-road "Wild Wheely"

I Thought that this design would be perfect for a BYB, so i contacted SnoopMaxx
to see if he would share his drawing to test with and possibly go to production with it
and he was more then happy to allow for this... Thanks SnoopMaxx

After some tweaking & reworking I had the Protype, that Buggy has now.......

Great work Buggy......

Chassis is sized for 14" to 18" wheelbase
I agree with you Buggy on "the shorter the better"

We will have to wait and see What buggy thinks as he builds and adds his personal touches
to this chassis, but i beleive that this chassis will be 1 of 4 other chassis
that SuperShafty.com will be selling soon

Regards V8
