Default Marlin TF2 mini build - LR2 Trans/T-case upgrade



Got my LR2 Trans/T-case Combo from GCM yesterday. Earlier in the week the Teraflex Z-Box and Shackles arrived also so they are going in on this small build. Also been sitting on the Warn 8274 Winch so night as well get it installed also. So here we go.

Got the LR2 Combo in and running. Only a few issues that were minor. #1- I did not realize that I would need a longer rear drive shaft, stole one from and old Wraith and it worked. Will be ordering new drive shafts now. The Wraith shaft does work though and will be fine for tomorrowís test.

#2- the skid plate does not work so as much as it pains me, I cut the new derlin skid up and got some protection. I will figure something out and have an idea. I made it a left drop T-case so I had to flip the skid plate around anyway.

Other than that the video on line was perfect for the assembly process and so far around the house everything works excellent.

Also I installed the Teraflex Revolver shackles and Z-box. Still need to remove the springs in the shocks and take out the small leaf. Iím going to run it like it is tomorrow and see how I like it. It has a ton of flex the way it is now.

Got the 8274 Warn winch on and the lights installed. Canít wait to get this thing on the rocks. Iíll post pictures as soon as I can. We will be in the Sierras and last time I was up there there was no service. Might be late Sunday.

Some major upgrades there, very nice!

How do you find the cchand interior? Did you fit it? Iíve been tempted but it looks like it could be quite heavy

I found it on RC4WDís site. They go quick. They are heavy and when I put it on TF2 RTR I had problems with the bottom of the interior hitting the ESC. So I just bought a waterproof hobbywing ESC that was a lower profile and problem solved. They really look nice once installed.

took all the electronics apart and waterproofed them with Silicon Modified Conformal Coating.waterproofed the batteries also with a combination of Silicone Conformal electrical tape and Plasti Dip. To be honest, in IMO I kind of like the Plasti Dip better. It covers faster. If you want to see the LED on a device you can cover all the other components with Plasti Dip and cover you LEDs with the Conformal. If you have a really tight fit the Conformal will be a better choice IMO because it goes on in a much thinner coat. Either way I believe both are a good choice. Did the Servo also, but I’m going to be upgrading that soon to an Xpert 6,000 HV High Torque WP. I have 3 of there servo’s in other rigs and so far they work very well
