Default 8X8 Tatra 813 Kolos

Well I now have somewhere to post this build up.
My take on the Tatra 813 Kolos
I started this 1 month ago but have kept it pretty much under my hat till now.

Specs:-
4x Losi Crawler Worm Axles
3x Losi Crawler Gearboxes
8x Rc4wd Militant 2.2 Beadlocks
8x Rc4wd Mil Spec 2.2 Tyres.

Some Styrene Metal and a Hammer

Started with 2 steel rails

Then cut out some Steel supports to mount the links

The 2 Centre Axles will get there drive from a Losi CC Gearbox that has had the Slipper removed and also the front cover which gives me a Transfer Case.

The plan is that This will attach to another LCC Trans that will send the drive to the Front Gearbox and power the Front Axle and the other ouput will transfer the drive along the Chassis rails with a Propshaft down to the Back Axle.

If my Calculations are right all the wheels should! Turn in the same directions.
Time will tell.....

So Chassis Sorted and this is what I have come up with.

Finally got a Rolling chassis Click the image to open in full size.
Couple of my temporary springs are a little wonky i can adjust that later.

2 Steerers up front

Got the Grill on and most of the roof details

Tamiya Tundra Spot lights are as good as the right size to be in scale

Skinned the edges of the bed and then got to work on the underside

I saw the fake leafspring on another site so decided to do the same to fillin the gap between the rear axles.

Shot the Cab with some bluey green paint and gave the bed a dulling down with some very watery black acrylic and this is where i'm up to at the moment

Update time on the 8x8
Got the Headlights in and Wired up
Click the image to open in full size.

Front Windows are in and I Stripped the Black Paint off the wheels
Click the image to open in full size.
Fabricated a Box behind the Cab to put the Electrics in
El cheapo ESC I don't need anything fancy as the axles are the Drag Brakes
RC4wd Bec to power the 2 Savox Servo's.
Axial 20t Brushed Motor.
Everything turns the way its suppose to which was probably more luck than judgement!!
So technically it is actually a runner now but i'm not taking it out to video it till its finished
So you'll have to stay tuned.
