Default Bondo's 1/6scale Scaler/Monster Truck Silverado

I must start off saying this project is inspired by a forum friend some of us know well, "NickRummy". Thanks to him and his kind heartedness he supplied me with the SIlverado body and the TXT chassis.
THX Nick !

Electronics to be used;

Castle Mamba Monster ESC
Castle 10Amp BEC
JR 8911HV Servo (Torque: 470 oz-in (2S Li-Po)Speed: .12 sec/60 (2S Li-Po battery)
Summit Transmission with servo actuated 2 speed
Emaxx motor plate
DUAL 770 sized Brushed motors
3s possibly 4s powered depending on final gear ratio which is still in the planning process

I will be scratch building my own scale axles (Of Nicks Design)from steel and using Losi Muggy Differentials, Losi 8 buggy CVD's, Losi 8 buggy Front and rear axle carriers. The axles will strongly resemble the Blackwell axles when complete aside from them not being a true "top loader" design.
I also will be making a scratch build chassis and 4 link suspension, the chassis will be started on and based from a Tamiya TXT chassis.

Thats it for now, I hope to be starting this project soon. Replacing some parts on my air compressor and the weather turning a little more co-habitable is whats holding up the beginning.

Here's a few pics of the body I'll be starting the project with, I will be repainting it with Base/Coat-Clear/Coat with a wicked Red and Ghost True Flames(the plan so far?) I also will be adding a tons of LED's





Yes, thats a Losi XXL behind the body.





My Inspiration, Nicks Beasty in all it's glory

No way, it's already got Lambo doors!! Saves you the trouble of fabricating the hinges!

That body is nice, it should work out pretty good.

The axle plan sounds interesting for sure, I'll be stayin' tuned for that...

You sound like you have little faith in Fat Kid Engineering, i hope to have enough progress on a limited budget to make you eat your words in the next month or so.

If Jeff can't do this, no one can. I have faith in you brother, and if he needs any help he has me to suggest other ways to make it.

Thanks for the support Bill, always good to have another brain to bounce ideas off of especially when we're slamming beer's.

Looks like someone else is trying to build this monster too, I've been sitting in my garage for about a year looking at it and finally finished a frame for it, now I'm working on mounting the HPI MT2 IFS, but yeah its a challenge building something this large lol Definately going to watch you during the process.
