Now to show you how the Predator attacks...

Started with my Cross Canyon JK with 1.9 Baja Claws...

First step is to open the cage and let the Predator out...it includes the tracks. Adapters are specific to axles. Currently there are adapters for the Axial AX10/SCX10 Axles. More will be coming.

The front adapter includes special high clearance knuckles, Tie rod, draglink and aluminum hexes.

As you can see there are tabs on the knuckles to keep the Tracks from spinning around.

Here's a comparison of the stock knuckle and the Predator Knuckle.

And here it is installed

You will need to use the tie rod being that the knuckles create a wider distance.

To mount the tracks, you remove the cap to expose the mounting...

Next is the rear axle. Same deal, the Predator Rear Adapters have the tabs.

here they are installed.

And here they are completely installed.

I would suggest that you add a little Blue Thread Lock on the Silver caps to keep them from loosening up.

Didn't have time to add brushless but by the time the snow falls, it will have CowBell to skim over the snowdrifts...

can you post up some install close ups. I am curious what alows the tracks to pivot but not flip completely over?what keeps them from doing wheelies onto the rear end of the track each time you accelerate?

SO I am guessing these would not be comp legal? due to not being 1.9 or 2.2? would be fun addition to comps though

Referring back to the installation of the first couple posts, there are tabs on the adapters that fit in notches on the tracks.

How is the track tension adjusted? If the frontmost wheel pair is shimmed, does the track set come with different thickness shimms?
