Yeah, I like the BJ Super, but I am breaking out an old school chassis for this truck. I had the chance to buy it and just couldnt pass it up!

That servo looks good up there. I didnt read it. How much power does it really have? Looks like it could move a house!!

Haha....was taking care of the kid.

Here are the pics:



Unmodified Steering:


So far, these links give a WB that is too long (~18.5") so I'm gonna need to mount them differently on the chassis. The GC sits at about 4.5"...which seems good to me. I'll get started on the steering soon enough...

Well, that just looks like it was meant to be. That looks freaking sweet! The pic makes it look much lower than 4.5" GC. You can drill out the axle end of the links with a 1/8" bit and then tap them for 4mm. Then mock it all up and see how much material you will need to shave off the chassis end. Then tap that end out also. That will bring the beef back to those links and get you your 18".

Those Jato springs gonna support that beast?

If you mount your lower links in the center like we do on most Berg chassis will you lose that half inch?

I got the WB down to 18" by inboarding the lower links and I mocked up the upper links. Here are a few pics:
