We be Rollin






I like the link geometry this way, but I still need to tweak it a little so the shafts don't rub. Had to give the trans a lift kit. And the front end got re-worked so the shocks would clear everything...

That looks super clean. What type of tubing are you using? It doesn't look like brake line.

I'm guessing SS tube. Very nice work. Someday I hope to beable to build a simple tuber. Instead always going for scale realism and detail. I like it a lot.

Yes, I used stainless tubing from McMatster Carr, expensive as hell but brazes real nice
(do a search for "stainless miniature tubing" if you want some)

I was thinking I would make a cradle for it between the upper links in the front, just behind the servo. I run Mini-T packs
