Default Nabil builds another super

I got to get a super ready for the Arizona Summer Shootout and North East National Championships next month so itís time to get to work. Iíve had these parts sitting in a box for about a month now

Parts list is basically the full Dlux kit car with some small changes
Click Here
I also did the Dlux knuckle weights and wheels to go with it

Electronics are going to be 45t brood conflux motors, futaba a700 servos, Holmes br minis, castle becís, and futaba radio gear

oooh a competitor lol. I will be at NENC with my losi super. You probably don't have much or any R&D needed to be done, so you got some time to put it together. Nice wheels btw. I hope to see you on the rocks! subbed.

I’m moving to San Diego in a couple weeks so the goal is to have it done by then. Hopefully I get to drive it before I leave to the summer shootout June 6th

Yeah it’s pretty cool. Not too heavy either. It kinda reminds me of my old super tuber

You know it. I’ve been itching to build another super, but had to get my 2.2 driving back to where I wanted it first

Made some tires yesterday. Narrowed truggy hb blocks and full width jconcepts ruptures. Still undecided what Iím going to run. I ordered longer standoffs for the wheels. The current ones are 25mm I ordered 30 and 35mm standoffs. I will do some experimenting and figure out what I prefer. Foams will be crawler innovations of course. I have a few options so Iím still undecided

Currently I think the ruptures are going to get mounted. Iím a bit worried with the compound and temperature in az. I think I will probably end up ordering another set of wheels and just mounting both

Iím back in San Diego now. Still have a lot of unpacking to do but I managed to get the tires and wheels glued up before I left. Tires come in at 8.25 inches tall and are filled with crawler innovations foams.

Axles are coming together now. Still need to mount servos, set caster, and set the link mounts

Which way do you set the rear caster angle? I liked 10-15* towards the front of the car to help push the rear around and just in case you gotta drive it backwards.

Probably going to end up right around zero degrees to start. Iíve tried both ways in the past but I donít really remember what I liked and didnít like about each setup
