I have been trying to heal up from surgery.

I am trying to build this thing cheap as possible. I am building the chassis by hand with a hacksaw and a file. So far the only only money i have spent was for the body,axle, and two Panther racing slicks for the rear. I had everything else in my junk box.

Here is the ghetto front steering, it seems like it is going to work just fine. :|

Depending on how much the body drags the ground I may lower down the body some more.

Thank you sir. The Castle Creations 9000 KV motor on 2S Lipo will turn somewhere around 75K RPM. So yes, I will be backing down the EPA on the throttle channel to keep this thing on the ground. If I can get it to hook up and drive straight it should haul butt.

Like what you did for the front end, how are you mounting the rear end?

looneybin 11-20-2009 06:43 PM

That thing needs some wheelie bars sticking out the back to complete the look. Cool build!
