could someone tell me what size links were used on this build here?



i am thinking that (at least it looks like) maybe shorter in the front and longer links in the rear to get the chassis forward and the weight up front. i really like the way it looks. i will not be running the stock three link though. i am going to run the strc 4 link plate.

looks to be stock lowers front and back and stock upper 3 link in the front. the design of the chassis makes the rear upper links longer. i think it improves articuation, helps combat rear steer/torque steer. i run this same setup but a 4 link in the rear.

I ordered the dig today Joe. I had a blast at the GTG yesterday and look forward to doing it again soon. Thanks to RCP for the great chassis and customer support and all that showed up in Frankling yesterday!

We have been waiting on the hoods for a long time. The person who is supposed to be doing them has our mold but has not appearantly pulled any hoods for some reason. I will try to either get the mold so someone else can do it, or beg him to.

From a business standpoint, there should be no begging involved. If he committed to pulling your Bastard hoods, than he should do the job.

If you (RCP) own the mold, and he is in posession of it, and all this time he's done nothing with it...short of going directly to him and taking your shit back (if he's not off shore), I'd suggest demanding that the mold and whatever compensation was put forth with it be returned immediately.

There are a lot of people clamoring for these molded hoods and this guys poor business ethic is making RCP look bad.

I understand that it's technicaly not your fault that they haven't been produced, but as the vendor it's ultimately your responsibility to make sure that what you offer becomes a reality.

We're all with you Brian...and this dude deserves a boot in the ass!

Check Nathans pictures in the first post of this thread...DNA dig installed.

And if you're comping the Bastard, you may want to think about removing that rear servo

the only reason the servo is sill there is cuz i ran out of zipties for the rear link plates and i dont wanna cut them just to remove the servo... im lazy i guess, i have my rear lock out on the way. heading out to by some lexan sheets today so i can make my own body panals so ill pick up zipties. im pretty impressed on how this chassis performs. i have had no problems witht the tabs so far! yay
