Default another scx6 ram newbright build

☆ i came up with a name for this rig 8m not sure why but im calling it project highschool ☆

I picked up another 1/6 new bright body the plan is to make this one a performance first type of rig im gona run a 1/8 scale motor and a momba monster x i want to be able to crawl and hit 40-50 mph im gona run the steal alloy ar60 axles on a custom frame its gona have a forward mounted motor and im gona try to keep it as light as posable im gona start trimming the body down and build some light bumpers and some simple sliders and a role bar the batterys will mount on the sliders

Thats the plan right now it might change in the year or 2 its gona take me to finnish building it anyway heres some pics as it sits now

I delatinoized the body i like it i had plans for a role bar but im liking the look with out it and just the tool box in the bed its simple and clean so i might stick with this look im not sure ill see what it looks like with the new bumper before i decide to make one or not

Thank you yo I think im gona rob the drive train from my wraith and convert the wraith to a 1.9 and use the ar60s on this rig i havent decided on a steel frame or some light weight plastic rails the metal frame would be easyenuff and i can weld right to it the plastic takes more work to attach stuff to it and not as.strong but its lighter easyer to work with and might be better for performance

I decided to go with the plastic chassie its simple but kinda cheasy reminds me of the strc wraith monster truck kit just alittle streached lol i still need to play with the ride hight and i need to make the front and rear bumpers i left the front wild so i can mount a metal bumper and i want to do a simple 2 tube rear bumper
I am getting a spoiled high school kids truck type of vibe from it simple but lifted as high as he could aford lol i might put some kind of sound system in it to complete the vibe lol

I got this thing together enuff to do some testing i ripped a old motor out of a crapsman drill its a 550 sized can motor the thing flamed on i blew the flame out and it still runs i have no idea why that happend oh well i ran it some more it seems fine ill just have to bring some water with me when i go out to run it lol the truck is still lighter than the wraith and with all the wait down low the its real stable the tire inserts are to stiff so i will have to tune them or run a differant set up im also gona add thicker oil to the shocks and install a sway bar i still need to make the rear bumper and sliders and clean everything up and install them that will add some weight and might help with the stiff tires im hoping to get some video this weekend i should have my work truck up and running also so maybe i can run them in the same video lol

I got my suspention mocked up and bolted on i had to change a few things but i think it will work
At full drop theres about 3/8" under the front diff and at full lift its looks like a normal truck the suspention is very narrow so it tucks up inside the wheel wells i want the body to sit about 1/8" off the ground and install a flint holder harbor freight sells a large flints for starting fires so i want to mount those so if i drop tbe rear and leave the front up it will through sparks out the rear end on pavement lol

The tire is hitting the body at full drop so i wont be able to turn i can narrow it up a bit but that still wont leave much steering and the narrower it gets the funnier its gona look i was thinking about something along the lines of the grashopper style front arms or a.ford twin i beam that way when i tuck the tires the tops will lean in alowing for more stearing but will hurt the performance alot im not sure what direction i want to go from here maybe ill just build it both ways and see what one i like better i can alway build another one if i like both lol and im also not sure if i want to go with scx10 1 axle or scx10 2 axleit only matters if i go 4wd or not the front end right now should work with 4wd also i just need to flip a bracket and install the other half of the gear box and add the front drive shaft to make it 4wd and move the shock mount lol most likly though its just going to be 2wd but i like having the option
