Cool

My Ridgeback is on it's way, and I think it will arrive someday next week. And if the converting from TMC to RTC goes easy, I'm able to post some build pics almost instantly after I get my hands on the new chassis!

Here are some more build pics

In this pic you can see how I mounted the rear upper links
on the rear plate by drilling some holes and mounting the ball ends
I also did this so that my links could be mounted on the inside of the plates


I also got the best results with the longer wheel base by repositioning
the front upper links by making a custom upper link mount this will be
available soon for those of you who would like to use it.
This also made it so I could mount the links on the inside of the plates pics
below.




Here is a pic of the extended drive lines in the picture you
can also see I made some custom Link shock mounts I did this because do
to extending the wheel base it put to much stress on the shock ends.


You can see the panels mounted and the roof panel. To mount
the roof panel you have to atach one side and heat it up with a blow
dryer or something similar and bend it over the roll bars but make sure not
to over heat the plastic or it will be ruined.

What did putting your rear upper links like that do for you? The limiting articulation factor that I've had on these rock crawlers has been the lower links, so I'm curious...

When I stretched it to 5.5" wheel base and tried to use the links the same as stock the axles swayed back and forth. So by putting the links
like I did they stayed solid.

Love the bottom end. Not a huge fan of the roll cage. Thinking maybe with an aluminum roll cage, changing the phillips for button hex. Bottom end looks
