Well I got the chassis pretty much done. It's getting MIG welded Thursday and Friday. I should get it done real soon. We tried Brazing it but when we test the strength of it when Brazed it just came apart. Then we MIG welded it and it was alot stronger. I'll post more pic's when I get it back.

Well I just ordered a Set of TA-05 Steering Knuckles. All they had was Blue ones, but I'll take that off. I may powder coat them a different color or strip them down to the silver. All I really have left now is a few Tranny parts and some wideners. Trying to find a set of 32mm Tobee Craft's, but they seem hard to find.

Well I got the Top half Almost done. I'm going to change a few things, but you get the idea... Well Here they are. This thing is strong. I can stand on it, and I haven't even braced it yet. don't mind the welds, I haven't grinded them down yet.

Hey I know I'm slow. It's taking longer then I wanted too. I have to drive 45min to weld the Chassis up. Plus waiting on parts, and the Tranny problems. I have pretty much everything I need to rap this thing up soon. I may end up buying some of those C's from Insane....I really liked that steering set up that he as started aswell.

Can I just say I hate waiting for parts. Seems like thats all I do now. Build very little wait weeks for parts. Build a little more and wait a few more weeks for parts......etc....:(

Check what I'm getting in the mail soon. Can't wait to get these bolted up with my Alloy knuckles and Tobee craft wideners. It's going to be killer combo.

About the time you buy the stuff and the time you put in it. You'll have close to the amount to just buy them. And thats if you don't mess up the first time. Save yourself the trouble and help support the guys that make Rc Crawling what it is today.

I got some more bent up tonight. The first set of pic's aren't to good. I'll get some better ones up later. Yes I know the bottom half is just taped. It's How I get everything lined up before I weld it.

Well after I posted these pic's I went the garage and did some more. In the pictures I have it set at a 14.5in wheelbase. I may go to 15in. What do you think. Longer or shorter?

OK I know everything isn't perfectly straight. Just like I said it just taped to get everything bent, cut, and ready to weld. everything will get fixed by the end. To be almost perfect. All that is left now is to do shock and link mounts along with small braces.
