Tamiya 1/14 scale big rig axle with full bearings

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?

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