Yota is used a lot, swimmer rig



The bully has changed chassis twice, but has never seen outdoor rocks, only what we made in our porch. Its a two hour drive to a decent rock formation and been kinda busy with work.

I am serching high and low for a large enuff body here in denmark to fit simmilar axels, witch i will order about 5 miliseconds after i have secured a useable body.

I have found some interesting bodies, but the prize the sellers ask is insane.

I proberly have to take a insane pill 1 day and "just do it" as the Nike comercials said back in the 90ties

Opened up the axles last weekend. They weren't locked so I decided to try and see if I could just jam it up with metal application epoxy. Here are some pics.







Screwed two smaller screws into the smaller gears to stop them from turning then added the epoxy.





Also got the servo for this rig. I laughed when I saw it's size. I keep on forgetting how big this is going to be.



sitting next to a normal servo.


Going to pick up the chassis when I get back this weekend. Hope they made it right.

I forgot, this is going under the hood. I just hope it doesn't fall apart while trailing. I put it together last week as well.

Looks good bud but the big block looks a little to small compared to the axles maybe you could make a motor an stick you electric motor in that or go for an rc4wd fracture v8 in it
