Gonna build a scale rig.
Decided I'm gonna try my hand at builing a scale rig. Got a New Bright Avalanche off ebay for a pretty decent price. Now the 64 dollar question is does anybody know width and wheelbase of the body? Trying to decide druvtrain and axles. Tlt axles or Wheely King axles? Thanks for any help."thumbsup"

san antonio! texas i am assuming?? YEEEHAAAWWW well what scale is it, 1/10 is probably tlt's. way more aftermarket support too. after i get done we should get together, if you are infact, in san antonio texas. :thumbsup:

It's listed as 1/6 scale. I know several people here have beuilt scale rigs with the same body so I was looking for info. And yes I am in The Lone Star state. Is there any where else to live?:lol:

i would say there aint.if you need one ive got a brand new pede tranny going up in the FS section. ill knock off the shipping for you. those bodies are pretty cool cause you dont really see them runnin round on these boards. its all fj and cj's blah blah blah.

Heres an avalanche...

Obijuan I'll definitely keep that in mind.... Haven't quite decided how I'm going to power it yet.... I've got a Tracer chassis kit coming but I doubt it will fit this... who knows? I'm also thinking about a sick twisted version made from a Wheely King with the transmission laid sideways.....Ahh the wonderful madness of it all!!!!!
S-dog... I saw that build earlier....I'm thinking as stock as possible body with some Bushwacker style fender flares, rock rails and a nice big chrome roll bar with big lights... Lemme see... if I give blood every few days at ten bucks a pop.....:mrgreen: Looks like it's time for Ebay.

OK I'm tring to get this started.... Gonna use WK axles. I'm probably going to use stock suspension set up with stretched chassis mounting points (does that make sense?) Wheels an tires are still up in the air. The 2.2 look a little small but Maxx size is too tall and will end up being to big. I'm looking at Moabs or Geolanders....
What do y'all think?

Ok what did I do wrong? My pictures don't show up.:x

tolofrhr 03-25-2007 02:45 PM

Well I give up..I've done it this way before but I guess it's not gonna work this time....Lemme try something else.

tolofrhr 03-25-2007 02:56 PM
