i am interested in how you do the steering.

thats what i am working on right now as well.

w/ that chassis, you should be able to build the model engine like i did too!
I am gonna mount the servo in the Frame Sort of like a "hand Bros" style??

Hey Mr. T, If you haven't guessed I'm stalking your Micro threads this evening.

This is a jaw dropper man.

I have hooked up the electronic's & just drove around for 10 minutes or so? I didn't see any Axle wrap occurring during my little run, I will keep a eye open to see what happens when everything is finished.

I have been out of town last week & plan on finishing this up this week

i had axle wrap bad w/ leafs only. but my leafs are not the fancy machined delerin ones from Blade.

the springs on mine were really light, so i made panhand bars out of paper clips.


its a real easy fix, if you have that problem.

O.K. So this is what I am thinking for the sterring. I havent seen anybody mount thier servo in this position. It is the same orientation as the "Hand Bros" for the scx10, only mounted in the middle of chassis.







It appears like it should work good, Nothing hits the servo when suspension is compressed. Also the body sits on top & you are able to close the hood of truck flat.

Good thinking on mounting the servo, I would prob put another cross member on the other end of the servo to avoid any flex since the servo arm mounts towards in inside. You could also try flipping the servo around and using a shorter servo arm.

I am gonna use another crossbrace eventually, If you turn the servo around the arm needs to be super short.



Been messing aroung w/the interior.


Did real wire mesh for the grill.


Re-soldered the esc/rx with 20g wire, alot more flexable than the hard wire Losi uses.

Allright just to show that I haven't forgot about getting this one done. Here are some progress pictures, Still have sanding, paint & some detail stuff left to do.





It's hard to see but I managed to get the Rear View Mirror in there.

WOW! That looks awesome T-buck! Nice work on the rear cage, it all ties together nicely, and MiniQlo tires look great on there as well. Ill definitely be watching this one to see how it turns out.
