What's next in your driveline? 1:1 transfer case, 2 speed transmission, or straight shaft to rear wheel drive? I have mated 4000kV motor to 2 speed WPL gearbox and it is a bit too fast with no low speed control. I kind of wish you did: your motor->1:10 reduction-> 2 speed -> 4WD and tell us how it drives. But I dont think you have room for that.

Right now I plan on going into a 1:1 transfer case. I will hopefully have it driving in the next couple of weeks. If it is too fast, I'll move to a 20:1 transfer case.

Default Cantilever Rear Suspension

I scaled down this design from thingiverse to make a rear cantilever suspension. The shocks are from aliexpress. It works pretty well.

Default Radius Arm Front Suspension

I used a the plastic tie bar from a HG P402 crawler cut in half to make the links for the front suspension. They are super glued to the WPL axles. I would have loved to make them bolt on so I could adjust the pinion angle but there isn't much space in there. The drag link and panhard bar are from aliexpress. The front needs a little but more work. The pumpkin hits the panhard bar at full compression.

I am going to wait until all the weight is in the vehicle before dialing out the stink bug stance.

I used this RC / Water Gun motor with a 10:1 reduction box while waiting for another brushless motor and gear reducer to come in. It resulted in a decent top and the motor didn't stall when I was climbing about a 30 degree incline. It ended up spinning the metal axles inside the plastic end caps that hold the wheels so that will get repaired and I'll go back to testing. I am hoping to have some running video by next week.

Default Interior

I sectioned the bench seat from the WPL Toyota Pickup and used the Toyota steering wheel for a simple interior.

This runs fine on pavement but I can hear clicking when it gets hung up in the river pebbles outside my house so I am installing metal gears in the axles. The wheel adapter fix in the earlier part of the thread won't work with the metal hubs so I 3D printed some adapters to work with the 5MM hubs and 8MM wheels.
