Ivory
 
Well, this rig will be the Ivory to my Ebony.

Specs:
Super Bully Axles
Area 51 Chassis
55T Tekin Pros
Dual HH TQ's

??S Lipo
Futaba BLS152 and Hitec 7950TH

So far, all I have done is a teardown and rebuild of the axles. Here are a few pics:

Area 51?

Where you get one of those?

I am interested to see how you clear the motors....

JeremyH 01-07-2010 08:18 PM

Haha...I knew that would be the first comment. A local has one that he is getting rid of. Yeah, I'm not sure if the links will clear....we'll see. I havent picked up the chassis from him yet.

Those wheels are sick. I don't know much about supers so what is the BLS152 servo going to be used for?

JeremyH 01-07-2010 08:44 PM

Front steering duty.

What is the width on those wheels?

Dang Jeremy! You don't waste no time do you? Let me know if there is anything else you need for this. I should have some stuff heading your way really soon!

JeremyH 01-08-2010 07:14 AM

Oh, I'll let you know! :lol: This thing will need some voltage!

What a dork. lol jk. Gonna be a sweet setup! You should run dual HH esc's with dual 4s! :)

JeremyH 01-08-2010 08:18 AM

I know....I am a dork. I am not creative at all and that was the best name I could come with.... :lol:

I just figured that since the wheels were already white delrin, that I'd paint the body white as well, which contrasts my 2.2 (all black). Now I just need Paul and Stevie...

dboy1k 01-08-2010 08:26 PM

looking good, so whats the plan for the links and steering

JeremyH 01-08-2010 08:32 PM

The chassis that I am getting comes with high clearance links, but I am still unsure if they will work (the chassis was built for clod axles). Here is a pic of the chassis that I will be running: Clicky

The steering will have Jetboat inverted servo mounts.

I wish that jackass local would hurry up and get that chassis to you already. :-P

JeremyH 01-09-2010 05:23 AM

Haha....I didnt want to mention his name.... :lol:

JeremyH 01-13-2010 07:56 PM

I got a bit of work done. Steering setup on both axles is mostly complete (need links for the rear axle and everything will get sleeved with stainless tubing):

I also needed a slightly wider setup for the wheels to clear the steering setup and give a bit more room for the lower links:

It's a good thing that these wheels are completely adjustable.....30 screws per wheel ( :shock: ) and I had the width that I needed (~15" to the edges of the tire). I still need to adjust the width on the rear wheels.

I was in the same situation and after narrowing the Plowboys an inch it really helped the steering angle before they hit the links.

JeremyH 01-13-2010 09:08 PM

Yeah, I dont have my chassis or links yet, but it seemed to me that the tires were going to get into them before I made fully use of the steering. I havent narrowed the Plowboys yet, but will if necessary.

dboy1k 01-13-2010 09:25 PM

you better start the narrowing process:mrgreen:
its looking good, it would really look good with a BJ super chassis"thumbsup"
