Default LimpshoT resurrection build

Been put of the rc hobby for 30 years, got back recently with a redcat rtr gen 8 and decided to get a mud monster build going. Going with axial scx10 2 builders kit. This is inspired by Harley designs monster truck build he did a few years ago.


Axles are built, have a lot of parts coming in later today.

I'm still working on sway bars although with the shocks set up like I have theirs not much torque twist. My suspension is pretty stiff and works great for the weight of the rig.

Got a few more parts for the build last couple of days. Reef triple 5, and Holmes puller pro crawler 3500kv. Lift kit install took me a bit there was one hole on each side that needed to be drilled.

Had some time today to fab up lower front shock mounts. Need to figure out how to get sway bars in the front.

Got it up and running! Went with mamba x esc and spectrum DX5 rugged transmitter. Just tweaking the esc to get it just right. This thing hauls ass on 3s!

Body is painted, 4 cans of corsa Grey, 2 cans of black, 1 bright silver and 1 flat clear. Truck is solid, hit a few small jumps. On 3s it is plenty fast. Got a few details here and there I will add soon.
