Actually looking through this thread made me want to try some brass chassis building of my own for my trekker. Nothing as crazy as this yet, but def. want to give it a try.

Well its alive kind of
The monster motor killed the sumo t case real fast..So I made a new stronger one

1/8 music wire 4 bearings & some aluminum mod pinions with some delrin, this is what I got:





Its just a bit bigger than the sumo one but its alot stronger!




I need some more grub screws to double up on the traxxas yokes as one grub won't cut it for more than 4 seconds...




After a run to the lhs for some grub screws I will get a teaser vid up tomorrow...It will blow your mind, this biotch is a beast!
On 2s its nutty & 3s is pure insanity, I can't belive the power

My neighbor has my old hobbywing 18T and 18A ESC (it was silly in my 1.9 MRC Pro) exactly like yours in a Redcat Sumo Micro Truggy and it's stupid fast! Wheelies at any speed, and it'll do backflips on command from a slow roll. I can't wait to see what a rig that can put the power down will do!

Hey bro all I have been thinking about is how to keep it running The new t-case is holding the power but I have to enclose it to keep the dirt out it locked up at the end of the run in the vid

Its pretty zippy in the vid I used the sidewinder micro esc on 3s...I hope when I get the rally wheels & qlo's back on it will put the power down as the stock sumo rubba didn't...

Here is the first test run on vid:

Thanks bud! I like the 2 gear t case alot its holding up to the monster power!

Well I got a little more done, wheels fixed qlo rubba back on, t-case sealed, beefier outputs on the axles & ditched the rear steer for a solid axle...I can go back to rear steer with a easy change up of the tripple walled tubes if needed, but with the power it has I doubt I will.






Sealed t-case with the rally's & qlo's back on!

Sumo ball ends, aluminum tube bodies big enough for pen springs ran internally (3/16"?), mini late model or mini t top shock spacers as bottom caps, and servo screw shock rods? They look REALLY similar to what I'm working up for my mud truck...

Just noticed the MRC lower ends. So, that means you're using a 3mm shaft with internal springs?

What drive shafts did you use and did they mount with no modification. If so how did you do it. Awesome build!

Sorry for the late reply Bear...The are losi mini shafts & the mods are on some of my other builds...Just have to sleeve the yokes & extend the axle shaft on the axles to get a good bite..I turn down some 1/8 music wire for the job on sumo axles..Never had to run such a beefy shaft on a losi axled rig..



So I pulled this of the shelf last night & started adding some more brass...Front end starting to take shape:
