Default 1:6 CXT Build

This is my first build in a long time. I am on a budget so no high end parts for now. The frame and suspension links will be made from Carbon Fiber. The colors I have are Black,Red,Blue,Silver and Yellow I don't know which one I will use. The truck is to big for Rock crawling so it will be a little Rock crawling and truck pulling like tractor pulling with a sled. The parts list is small but its a start.

I will use one of these Carbon Fiber color's for the frame and suspension links.

Can't wait to see how this goes. But if you really want it to be a crawler then it is very possible. It all depends on how capable you want it to be.

I am open to any suggestion. The frame will be more to scale like the Bruiser. I am going to start making the flat sheet of Red Carbon Fiber. The sheet will 3-ft. x 2ft. and 1/4-in. think, that way there will be enough to make the suspension links.

Whered you get that truck from? I wanted to buy one for my little cousin since we saw a 1:1 version of that the other day and he got so excited..

I checked e-bay and a few online stores and couldnt seem to find it..

Thanks!


P.S. Looks like its going to be a good build!

Take a look at the k2 chassis those are scale chassis but you would have to make your own. Since there only like 12" and 16" or you can make a simple ladder chassis. do you want it to be a crawler,trail truck,or a puller? it all depends on what you want the truck to do. that will determine on how you should build the chassis.

As big as that truck is and with the size of the tires, have you thought about using a droop type suspension so that your COG and ride height would be lower. I cant wait to see this thing finished with all the carbon fiber details.

I want to build it some what to scale, but if when I cycle the suspension I find that it needs a sub frame I will. Keep in mind I would like to do some Rock Crawling with it and truck pulling with a sled which is my next project.

i dont think a 645 and servo saver are gonna be very good at turning those tires. but good lukc with the build, a droop suspesnion would be awesome.

I looked around to see what every one is running. I found almost half of the people using the HS 5645 MG and this servo saver with big tire. The info I got was from the sticky in the Clod section. Is this info out of date?
