I would love to be able to work on my TXT-1 Crawler.. I have the following parts new ready to be added:

Hitec 7980 Servo for front steer
Custom Front servo mount
TTR CVD's
Savage Shocks


Since I probably won't be Snowmobiling this winter as the snow up in Northern NH hasn't really been good... I might find time to work on my Crawler ready for the Spring

They were custom made on a lathe years ago, but I think rc4wd or maybe crawler innovations is making them now? I did a quick search and could'nt find them, but I'd swear I saw them not long ago.

Longest MIP shafts ever! They are extended with the same tubing I'm using on the roll cage, and TIG welded.



Also got the steering linkage on.

NICE!!!!! It's great to see some progress on this build.

Looking real good. Your skills are very strong youngblood.

If there was ever a build I would really like to see finished (and with my own eyes someday hopefully since I'm not too far away from y'all) it's this one.

More!!! I want to see this one run!!!

I'm forming the body panels the same way I did the hood and cowl. The lexan goes in the oven for 5 minutes and then its formed over the molds I've made from wood and foam. It hardens back up in about 1 minute.

Here is the start of the drivers side panel.
