I'm sorry, couldn't help myself. Guess ZoSo was right... I'm havin too much fun! Was gonna say something bout his foot hangin out the floor too. :ror: But in all seriousness, That's an awesome job on the cage!! "thumbsup" Can't wait to see the finished product.

Got the cage and body painted, windshield and hood hold downs and jerry can added. Still working on the working steering wheel, floor, and driver. I wanted to do olive drab but the closest Rustoleum Home Depot had was satin hunt club green.

Great Jeep
 
I love the details to the body. Looks great! Keep us posted on your build."thumbsup"

Update! Going to the beach for Christmas, so yet another revision for this Jeep. I've had a set of Panther Maxx paddles for ever, and setting the Jeep up on em the other day got me thinking.......
So I ordered some Maxx Maximizer wheels, yellow because they were only $15 a pair direct from Maximizer, and a couple Turnigy 25C 5800mah 2S LiPo's to go with the E-Revo motors/ESC.
After putting the tires on I see I'll have to lift the body a bit and put some tube on the shocks to limit up travel. Trying to get the steering working good was kicking my arse, so I've decided to just have a servo per wheel to keep steering linkages simple and level.
I'll be locking the front diff and going 4 wheel steering, I already have all the parts to convert the rear to steer.

Looks cool! Be sure to get some video of that!

DonsATV 12-12-2009 09:43 AM

Holy Smokes!!! :shock: You gotta get video of this thing in action!! "thumbsup"

Thorsteenster 12-23-2009 11:51 PM

Here she is, all set up and ready for the beach!
I had to make a "body lift" to give some extra clearance for the tires, and steering is dual servo, one per wheel lol. Easiest way I could come up with to get good steering with tie rod clearance.

Who'da thunk those tires would be too much for such a small drivetrain? Snapped CVD's and unlocked my locked diffs. I had to make some body repairs, straighten out the steering, and figure out how to widen it a tad for the Slash tires to clear the steering. I ended up using some Re-Frog stub shafts I had along with brass bushings. Widened it out just the right amount and looks better under the body.
Had some old seats I got from someone on RCC a few years back, to mount it I just drilled a few holes in it and zip-tied it to the cage and chassis and then zip-tied Barbie in, as well as her hands to the wheel.
With the 4WS it turns super tight! I don't think I've ever driven an RC with such tight steering, and with the rear servo reversed it's fun too.
I'll get some vid of it tommorow, was trying to get a little night run but didn't work out too well trying to drive, film, and actually get something on camera.
