Default MST CFX... Out with the old in with the CFX...

OK, sold up my Vaterra. The engineer in me really liked the transmission on this little rig- even though it is hidden from sight.
Few build pics, but guess you've seen those before. Was going to fit the Jeep Rubicon body, but decided in the end to go with a Loops Pajero... Axle mount servo is a bit er, poo. Catches on the chassis, stops flex and vertical upward movement. Home made CMS, got a better one to fit yet...
Undecided on whether to get some 10mm longer shocks and run it in droop more, but with the highish motor, maybe less flex is more stable. and TBH, the stock shocks are half decent- not leaked yet...

Nice! Can't really tell how you chassis mounted the servo? Did you use a 3D printed bracket?

Nice job! I like the MST platform. Exclusive RC makes a CMS kit for the CFX-W that also fits this chassis with that transmission.

Its actually the normal mount drilled into the sides and longer screws through the shock tower. It is admittedly a bit ropey! but I do have a better one- although the Exclusive RC one sounds good as well...

Infact, just found what looks a real good CMS bracket on Shapeways... Lets see how that does!

Went on Exclusive RC site and could not locate the chassis bracket.
I think i know the one you talking about on Shapeways(see below), but wasn't this one or the Dinky one also listed below would work with the CFX as the trans might be in the way??

Also the Dinky one does not look to have panhard like the Shapeways one from Bedroom RC. Is a panhard necessary for this type of setup?

That is indeed the one from Shapeways, it may need a bit of fudging... But we shall see!
I dont have it currrently setup with a panhard rod, but you do get some bump steer with a fourlink setup, so I will be changing my setup to panhard to eliminate this.

Wheels finally done...

Obligatory flex shot,,,

Got some better shocks on order, will have to make some new chassis mounts for them, slightly longer to run more droop. And a 35t motor to fit, paint should be done later this week hopefully. And then out for its maiden test on 30th...

Does that servo mount work on the CFX-W too?
