I got the frame cleaned up i realized i dident line up the rear spring hanger very well but i ended up leaving it lol i droped the skid mount down and that smothed out the front driveshaft painted it up with some rubberized undercoating and wired up the lights with a recever relay so 5th channel lol only 1 more left maybe ill do a light bar on 6 i still need to take the rack off and finnish it up and clean it up the new front shafts should be here tomarow so ill do the xrmod and get those on i have some new driveshafts coming i killed the last ones im almost ready to put the body back on again and hopefully wont have to take it off again till i get some people in it and hopefully i wont break anything for a while and get some good run time on it

The lighting is realy bad on these picks sorry but sho7ld still give the idea

Your link and driveshaft angles are too steep! I'd drop your link mounts and tranny by at least 2 inches, or shorten the shocks. This will resolve most of your suspension and driveshaft issues

I already eliminated the driveshaft angle issues it was a axle shaft that broke nothing to do with drive shaft or link angles the axle shaft got tangled up in the chub i was trying to just turn output shaft a hair not run the motor all the way around my point was the axial brand axle shaft just snapped like a tooth pick on 2s with just a hair throttle there is so much torque that shaft dident offer any resistance

This truck is so long lowering the skid anymore just isent posable and there hasent been any suspention issues unless you count the rear spring purches are a bit off there isent any driveshaft binding issues its got about 5mm of more traval before it binds

Heres a short vid of it crawling in the snow you will notice the front right wheel stoped turning making it a 3wd and that was the first run on the brand new boom racing universal joint there must have been a flaw in the shaft cause the replacement is holding up good

9after my last run i noticed a crunching sound i figured it was the gear box it was but not what i though it was it turned out i striped the gears so instead if ordering new gears for the questionable jug gear box i got to fabing up a new motormount / gear box / simulated motor / heatsink

i traced the jug motor plate on to some cardboard for mock up then transfered it to some scrap aluminum and cut it out bent it up and i now have a duel motor mount and the aluminum works as a heat sink and looks like a motor block so win win win i used a 68t spur to keep the gearing down but its still gona be higher geared than before but still be geared low enuff to crawl in low but still fast enuff to be fun on the trail

jug motor plate that i copyed or uh i mean designed my self in cad lol


cardboard templet


transfered to the aluminum


cut out and bent up


in the chassie


motors and spur mocked in

motor set up is complete i did a little bit of testing and i think i found the sweet spot with the gearing low gear is still realy low but now high gear is just a bit faster than walking pace fast enuff to bash around a bit lol







i just need to clean up the wires fix the upper holes in my motor plate there not right at the moment and cut down the output shaft and put the all the bolts in the spur gear and use the right size lol

all back together i dident realize that with the leaf springs when th3 truck leans over in a turn th3 turning radius get tighter and which is nice when turning dough nuts it dosent realy want to role at speed i guessing it will but it seems pretty stable ill have to keep a eye on the temps though the gearing is alot higher and this rig is heavy so a few packs should give me a good idea

i got this rig out on the trails at proline by the fire the gearing is to high in high gear it bogs down with any resistance ok for flat ground but sand or anything i have to down shift
in low gear it dosent have the torque i want
im thinking ether smaller pinions or bigger motors the bigger motors would keep the speed with out bogging and would give me my torque back the smaller pinions would make it so i dont have to make any changes
one other thing not realy a issue of any kind but the gear noise is realy loud kinda siunds like a real motor lol

ive decided to rebuild the jug trans the new gears are on there way and upgrade all the bearings then step up to cheap brushless motors i think it will be geared low enuff to not get any cogging with a non sensored set up
