pics are too big to view easily. also, posting pics side by side like that make it hard to read...........with that out of the way....


WOW!!!! Looks good! Please enlighten us on your dig setup. How did you make the rear driveshaft disconnect?

The pics are no big deal, just resize all your pics to 640x480 and always post the URL's under each other and not on the same line...

I wanna see the driveshaft in action!

Later,
Jake

Really cool idea. I think I might take it a step further by making it cable actuated so it floats with the shaft.

Well if I'm not all wrong here I think that font dig means that you can dissconnect the rear wheel drive and make it front wheel drive only.

thanks scott for the help maybee i can return the favor and offer some help with you
with yore scaler tlt


jekyll is right,fornt dig allows you to unluck the rear with this you can hook a rock with the rear
and turn on a dime the linkage is part of what makes front dig work

Awesome man looks good. What type of material did you make your side plates out of? Is it just 16ga. mild steel or is it something else. From the pics it doesnt look too thick.

Other than that sweet truck man, I have been trying to figure out a way to disconnect the rear and lock the rear axle at the same time but might have to do something similar to yours. How does yours act? Have any way to post a quick video of it? Keep up the good work.

From what I can see, the linkage slides the female off the male shaft Is that right?
If so, what keeps the male shaft from falling down? Also, how do you get the splines to line up?

I've been thinking of this & I can't get the re-connection of the shaft down.

There is an aluminum rod down the center hole of the male shaft that keeps the

2 male parts from falling,when i use the 3rd channel to hook up the rear drive the
servo keeps pressure on it until the shafts line up
like the steering servo tries to turn the wheels but is too weak until the car moves
