Quick update

I've been chasing an shifter problem it doesn't like high gear first issue was the hole was machined wrong and dident line up I fixed that then the shifter cog would seize up if it wasn't shifted nicely so I ground the gear slots out so they dont bind anymore it still feels like there's sticky points but I won't know till I get it back together I picked up a dirt cheap ESS setup it works good to mask the outrunner noise it sounds like its supercharged now lol and I mounted the speakers in the bed for a scale look I just need some scale speaker grills
I started some simple bumpers the back came out nice but I'm not sure on the front yet
I have a driver on the way I picked up some plastic epoxy to stiffen up the role cage I have some spring steal I'm gonna epoxy inside the role bar so it holds its shape better then I get to tear it all apart and paint it

The spring steal wire going in to the role cage



And the bearing on the back of the steering wheel and servo horn

I made up some really simple bumpers and sliders I finished my he front one its now ready for he winch and its not perfect but from 5ft away it looks great the sliders are welded up but still need paint and I still need to weld up the rear bumper but it will work for some testing
While chasing slop in the steering I found my front axle is about 1/8" off aperently i dident get the housing ground down flush so one leaf pack is sitting kinda sideways so I need to fix that I got the wheel offset I wanted
My driver is in the po box right now so I'll pick that up soon then make his head turn along with the steering wheel
It still needs shocks and some under body protection that will tie in to the sliders and hide that uglyness

Lol 3 years since I started this build lol but hay life happend 2 moves and a new house that needed a lot of work still not all the way moved in and still have a lot of work to do and some were in there I had to do a engine swap on my diesel tow pig so I can finish moving but this rig is getting close to being done now lol



I actually took it out to the rocks for a test it turns out allthread turns noodle soft if you don't sleeve it lol i fixed that then noticed the servo mount isent up to the task so I need to build a solid mount THIS RIG WILL STEER some day lol

The sound kit really helps with the noise the revolver makes gives it that supercharged sound kinda lol

As soon as in can come up with a camera I'll get some video of it in action



My first impression of this rig is good it feels well balanced and it climbs good the wheel speed in high gear is awesome and the torque in low also is awesome in my 10min till my all thread noodles cooked it felt great

I'm not sold on the Holm's hobbies servo just yet it feels week but even struggling with these big tires and a vary heavy rig its not even warm nether is the motor so they will!probably last longer than the rig itself

i got out and did some more testing everything worked realy good except for the steering im gona try and tighten it up some more but theres almost zero slop but it dosent seem to hold its position vary well every little rock pulls the front end every witch way looks like a drunk going down the trail i might try to mount the servo on the axle and see how that dose but then i would have to move 5he motor back not to big a deal but i would rather not
anyway heres a quick video out on my backyard test trail

i decided to mount the servo on the axle but space was limited so i mounted the servo on the axle tube nice and low and that seems to be working out it dose hit the transmission but i dont want the springs to compress that far anyway and it dosent limit the articulation any so im gona leave it and moving the servo makes alot more room for the shocks to sit
the micro servos came in so now the steering wheel and the drivers head move i have a servo reverser for the driver coming because he looks right when i turn the wheels left

the body is taking a beating so i think im gona make some body protection pannels ans some tube work on the front i dont want this body to get too beat up
and the new ssd output shaft is on its way so it will be 4 wheel drive again
