Ever thought about breaking out the styrene and trying your own scratch body? I'm sure there are lots of people to give advice on the subject. Even if not making an interior so the big trans would be an easier install. Or even trying a different large scale depo Rc body to get the rest of it built before attempting a proper yota body, just to make some headway on this cool rig. Summit trans for sure with a front dig for 2wd/4wd ;) . I would think for a motor the stock traxxas 775 would work pretty awesome with a big 3 cell too. Anyways, hopefully this build gains some steam this year good luck!

Yeah I think you're correct, the axles are closer to 1:3.7 scale with the RC4WD ones at 15" and the full size at 55.5" and the motor is closer to 1:6. Cool build regardless, those axles are sweet. This truck is gonna be huge!

Looking at the diffs is hart breaking!!!!!
Breaking is the key word here folks!
I just ordered these axles and I'm sure that I will be looking to see what 1/8 scale diffs will fit. These look like total junk. I may have wasted a hole lot of money on these axles now that I see how the diffs are made.

Twisted....can you list the 1/8 scale diffs that might possibly fit in a Traxxas bulkhead? Only stuff with regularly available parts.

I can and will also be doing one very soon.


They are the losi LST, XXL diffs. The new XXL axles have the stronger Spider gear case. There is some Dremel work to make them fit. Also hot glue can be used to beef up the Traxxas Bulk heads that you will be re working.

Those diffs don't have an option for a spool. Do you know of any that have an option for a spool?

I quit using spools! Try silly putty! It is much better on your drive train. It's locked up but is more forgiving.
Try it and you will be very pleased with what you find. I ordered mine on line. I pack it full.
here is a video of the diffs pushing 40 series tires on 4s with a Leopard 4274 2200kv motor. As the video shows I push it hard.

This video is also why I'm scared for these 1/5 scale Toyota axles that I just bought for my Scorpion MK1 build that I'm currently working on.
I don't need another buggy I just love building stuff and seeing it work when it's done.

This. I use silly putty or poster putty "yellow blu tack" which is even stiffer, depending on the differential and desired hardness. In some diffs, poster putty acts as a locker, so I use silly putty. For it to work you need to pack the diff full as twissted said. Never broken a driveshaft on my 6kg 1:6 rig, it turns very sharp in the corners at speed without rolling over and I've never got stuck crawling. Best of both worlds!
