I really applaud you for trying the IFS conversion on this body! ****ing stoked where this goes now. How is the track width; did you use wideners?

Thanks Gula,

Track width is 10.5" and I used the wide hubs provided with the Axial Method Ifd's...

Seen in this picture...

This is going to look so good with the IFS up front! It would look even better with a Chevy 1500 body, because you know, Chevy does IFS. But definitely still awesome!

09 F150 > 09 Silverado. At least as far as 1:1 goes. I love me some Chevy trucks but the 07-13 were an abomination.

I 1000% agree, I was just saying it would be cool to see an IFS underneath a Chevy body.

No servo in place yet, I have not decided on its placement just yet. I need to adjust toe as it seems to have too much at this point, and my only other comment is on the bump steer...seems to be a bit in there.

Ifs under a Raptor is def the thing needed, also keeping the tires under the fenders...

I would think since it's ifs, I would try to mimic traxxas slash servo set up side of the frame or mounted behind IFS on floorboard...
hope that helps..

the location provided in the ifs kit is behind the assembly, right in the way of a scale drivetrain layout... I am planning on getting a scale trans in the near future and thinking about putting the servo up front.

Do you think it's possible to swap out the rod ends from the steering onto the suspension arms to widen the track width without using (wheel) spacers? Im thinking I may get one of these to try out.

I am going to try exactly that... need to find longer M4 set screws and I will space out the stock rod ends. The stock rod ends are already long.

If you need i have 25mm and 30mm M4 set screws i can send if you cant find any. So do the rod ends recess into the suspension arm, how much if so?

Thanks... Yes, all the rod ends are the same except the two servo links. They sit in pockets in the A arms, I plan to make some spacers making the rod ends flush with the ends.

Ok... I attempted to use Jato rod ends, to bring the track width out 1/2". I had to drill the arms out to 5/16" They work, but reduce travel by 1/2, both up and down and driveshafts are no longer working. I tried Vaterra twin hammers cvd's but they are also to short, need to find something 1/2" longer than Vaterra TH cvds.

What length are the stock ones? Know how to braze? Pictures, pictures I need pictures. You do a left stock, right stock/modded comparison ?

I did not adjust the steering, so there is some major toe in...
Also I found a rod end twisted, thus binding, thus limiting travel...

Arms level...
from center
R, 4" to outside bearing face.
L, 3 1/2" to outside bearing face.



Arms drooped



Twin Hammers cvd up top, stock on bottom.
2 1/2"
2 3/16

So I gave up on waiting for a SSD complete rear axle, and ordered a Scx10II kit axle. A day later, the SSD came into stock...

Anyway I built my new axle last night without directions and bolted it onto my Raptor. Now I have matching gear ratios, instead of overdriven rear.

I also mounted up a new set of Rc4wd Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. Measuring @ 4.75" tall they fit perfectly. and fill the wheel wells like they should. I will post pics later...
