Dual HH TQ's

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

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?

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

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...

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

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 ( ) 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.

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.
