Default Superjuice Berg

I finally built up my super berg again, on a prototype V3 Superjuice. So far I really like it, but I still have a lot of tuning to do. And I need redo the rear upper and lower links.



I built a set of Super sized 7.75" HB Khaos tires for it. They are on Crawler Innovations machine narrowed HPI Blast wheels with Crawler innovations 7.75" dual stage foams.



Running single 7980 servos.



I cut some just over 9oz front knuckle weights, not the prettiest, but they work fine. Both front and rear axles are running the RCBros zero ackerman 12mm bearing knuckles and Super 300 CVD's.



Rear axle is similar to the front and has Sven's knuckle weight system. Two slugs on each rear for now.



Here is all the electronics on the skid. 2 fxr's, two bec's, and a Futaba 614 reciever.

I'm liking those Super Pins... how wide did they turn out to be and did you glue them to the rim any or are they just stretch fitted?

Thanks I still have most of the superbully left. Usually its the reiable running super when I'm working on this one. I know Krawlfreak likes to put some time on the proto's before settling on a final production run. He does operate fast though....

Thanks they seem to work really well so far. They are spot glued in 4 places on each bead.

Awesome work. Can't wait for the superjuice chassis to be avaiable. My BJ3 miniclod needs a big bother.

Haha ya I'm so hard headed that I will most likely drill that gear again. This time I just won't get so close to the pin!

Thanks Will, these knuckles are sweet! Can't beat Zero Ackerman! The bigger bearings are great insurance, especially in a super. Also the shorter knuckle arm really keeps the tire rod out of harms way. Running a OTA tie rod wouldn't gain any more clearance.

You won't be dissapointed! Krawlfreak drove his to second place at Copperstate Crawloff in a tough crowd.

Thanks! I'm hoping to make it to both of those comps. I will actually have drivin the rig before those. May not have been my brightest idea to switch to a new super with zero drive time right before a big comp, but I just couldn't resist it!

Also just wanted to add that I am durability testing the 7075 RcBros lockers in this super, since there's no way my 2.2 would faze them. So far they have held up and the super courses at copperstate were not easy on the rigs!

Also found some pics of my rig on that crazy high grip rock.

That super is killer. I wish I had an extra $1,000 so you could build me one.

Those big sexy tires remind me of this beast.

I did the same thing too, finished my super up in the car on the way to the comp spot
