T-buck's SMC 5.5 EX
 
I have been lucky enough to recieve a new SMC 5.5 EX Chassis.

This new chassis has an adjustable wheel base of 5.5 to 6.0 inches. 1/20 scale seem to be the perfect fit.

With alot of us "Micro guy's" that strech the W.B. & see how much better your rig performs I am really looking forward to this size chassis.


A Picture of what everything in the package look's like.

This is the Model Body I am gonna use. I have some different ideas so of course won't look like that when finished.

This is just a shot of the Body proped on the SMC+ to show the size difference of the body compared to original SMC chassis. The W.B. of truck in photo is 108mm(4.25)

With all the options for model bodies, it makes me want one. You'll have to bring it along with you when you're done so we can all be jealous :mrgreen:.

There is always a chance, Doubt that I would bring it to Indy though.

Looking really damn good, much better with the extra length.

Now get cracking and finish it up!

johnnyh66 03-04-2011 12:40 PM

How does the width of the chassis compare with the width of the body?

Thanks Norm. "thumbsup"


Still working on the body & interior. Did some messing around w/the steering. Wheel Wideners from BWD showed up today, So of course the first thing I did was throw the Mini-Qlo tires on. :mrgreen:

Finished up the Drivelines.
http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/u.../Dlinedone.jpg

I am gonna use the 1mm(.039) Music wire to make the steering links.

Lowered the body a little more.

The more I look at this the more I want to make my own scaler. I will def be watching this, I have a feeling it is going to turn out damn good. The stance with the qlos and wideners is sexy.

R/CMaxximus5.0 03-07-2011 02:36 PM

Lookin good T-buck"thumbsup" I want a micro now!:mrgreen:

BEELZEBOB 03-07-2011 02:47 PM

Freggin Schweet!

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!

stroker613 03-07-2011 02:53 PM
