Default chassis questions

That chassis is a beautiful piece of work.

Does your chassis require the wideners? and can you run the 24 series wheels without the wideners? or do they rub the links.

Thanks

Thanks.

My chassis doesn't require wideners for most rims. The 24 Series rims will rub without them, the tires hit the links and the shocks. I'm working on some more detailed build-up pics they'll be up soon.

looks great. Lot of engineering went into that chassis.

One question though...did you compensate for owners that want to run the longer 550 can Kyosho Mag Mayhem? Looks like it would hit the chassis...or not even fit....?

I have my lathe motor spaced off the mounting surface of the Pede tranny by almost 3/16", so the pinion set screw didn't hit the spur gear. I still have about .100 of clearance with this set-up, so normally there would be over a 1/4" of space between the chassis and motor endbell. I know a standard stock 540 can and Integy's 55t lathe motors will fit, I'm not sure if a 550 would fit it may be too tight.

Are you asking about the 24 Series wheel? If so, I saw them in the clearance bin at my LHS. I knew the hex was the right size, and I wanted to try a rim that was bigger in diameter then the standard 2.2.

Wow Bender this chassis keeps looking better every time I see it! I plan on getting a TLT this X-Mas and if money permits I'm definitely going to get this! Do you have any pics on where you mounted you reciever? I see you put your esc on the back mounting plate. Thanks.

I just have the reciever zip tied to one of the chassis side plates, I need to figure out a permanent spot for it.

Default Update.........

Well, after endless test time driving the SW2 chassis I've tweaked a few things. I've switched to Losi red buggy springs in the rear and Losi white buggy springs up front, it's working alot better now. I think I'm going to stand the rear shocks up more then the front, I'm still getting just a little torque twist in some situations. I have added a 3/4" steel flat washer behind each wheel, for some added stability on sidehills. I lost a little wheelspeed because of the extra weight in the wheels, but it's alot more stable now. I may go up a tooth or 2 on the pinion, to try and get some wheelspeed back. I also had to cut the bed off the CJ body because it ripped in 2 places.

The chassis does come with the "BENDER Customs" banners, but the "Giving Clods the Shaft" stickers are limited edition.

Rumor has it that you have so much weight in the wheels it takes both you and Sparky to get it back on it's wheels after a roll over.

Instead of going up a few teeth in the pinion/spur to get more wheel speed just run a 7 cell pack instead of a 6. You will get all the wheel speed you need.
