A short video showing my first test of the screw drive system I'll be using for the rollback feature.

Also got a set of shocks to try out. I really like the small diameter and the resevor adds a nice look but they are a pain to bleed. Still not sure I did it right. I bought two pairs but I'm not sure I'm going to buy 3 more.

Thanks.

I don't have a link but you'll find them on ebay if you search for xtra speed 70mm piggyback shock.

Just so you know I'm not happy with the shocks and will be getting something different. The reservoir diaphragm has no seals so it leaks. Plus getting the tube to stay connected on each end is tough. I ended up putting some heat shrink tubing on the small nozzles so the the tube had something to hold onto.

I found some pretty neat 70mm shocks on feebay for like $22 for 4 and they work pretty well. Unsure of the name but they're blue

More work on the rollback mechanics. Pretty much complete. You can see the white delrin blocks that the channels on the underside of the bed deck will slide on.

Also started thinking about the transmission options. I have a GRU I might try. Do people have any issues with these handling brushless power?

I personally wouldn't run a Novak brushless motor since they can only run 2S. That, and I don't think they're as smooth as a good brushed motor on 3S. Personal preference.

I believe the novak can run on 3s since it was paired with a goat 3s esc originally. As far as a brushed motor being smoother I have had a similar experience but a good sensored brushless does pretty well.

I let the smoke out of a Goat 3S a couple of years ago. I had the system on, not moving or under a load, because I was setting end points for the steering and it went up in smoke. Since then I've been reluctant to put 3S on anything Novak even if it is rated for it.

I've had issues with their esc before (hence the motor) but the motors have always run strong. That being said I'll see if this motor is a good match for this rig.

Continuing to make progress. I have all the suspension set up including the front two axles panhards and drag links. Got the rollback structure mounted to the frame and it tilts nicely. I also made some crossmembers to eliminate flex.
Cut out the bed to size it up. Width is good but I need to shorten it up to around 21-22".

The only issue I'm having is picking shocks. I need 10 so I'm trying to find shocks that won't break the bank. They need to be either 60mm (compressed) - 75mm (uncompressed) or 70mm - 85mm. Not finding much.


Getting close to needing the cab. I may need to make it myself!

Looking good. If you can handle building the mechanics of this, you should be able to scratch build the cab.
That being said, my builds take forever because I am too critical of my own work when scratch building with styrene. It has to be anatomically correct or not at all.

Shouldn't have any flex with those beefy crossmembers

More progress. Got the rollback mechanics all functioning. Instead of adding a mechanical tilt I'm going to see if gravity can do the job. I added some shocks filled with 5k diff oil to make the tilt more controlled and prevent it from slamming around. I also included limiting straps to prevent the shocks from being over-extended. At the back of the bed there are some rollers I made that allows the bed to roll out once it contacts the ground.
I also mounted the steering servo so that is all working.

Getting to the point I will have to start working the body.

First off, GREAT build. Congrats.

You over simplified the ideal way for a 2 axle steering. Funny when one tries to do something one tends to over engineer it .. but you have managed to make it so simple May I ask if you have a link to those steering boxes ? I see you are running SCX10 axles with what I am assuming are 1.9 wheels. Wondering if the steering boxes will hold up to AR60 axles with 2.2s. Found some Hot Racing steering boxes. Not in the mood of spending $60 for a pair. Wondering what you paid for yours.

Thanks. I am running scx10 axles and 1.9 wheels. The steering boxes are from xtra speed and are intended for Tamiya 1/14 semi. I havent put them through their paces yet but they seem pretty stout. I got mine off eBay for around $13 each.

I have been makings progress and will post of pics and a videos soon. In the mean time I have a question for others. I didn't expect a tight turning radius on a rig this long but I wanted to know if running open diffs (vs lockers) in the front two steering axles would improve things noticeably.

Here is a videos of the rollback bed in action. The twin hammers on the back is no lightweight and it does fine.

https://youtu.be/Y92G1fkgL9Q

As you can see in the video the rear axles need heavier duty springs. They are buggy shocks so the springs are soft.

I did have a causality. The output on my GRU snapped off. Trying to decide if I'll buy another unit or fabricate my own. I need a LOT of reduction since the transfer cases I'm running increase the output ratio.

Been working on this body for some time now. Started with someone else design but didn't like allot of it, so doing my own. Think I'm going to make it a go anywhere camper. Like your ideas. Going to use that steering idea in the rear. Started out was going to be 1/16 with WPL axles. Now I've decided to do SCX10 axles, with one set coming from a scrapped AX10 Crawler. Hope you don't mind showing these in your post. The different colors are for me to help distinguish the differ parts.
