Default TLT scaler mockup.

Well i recently received some tlt axles in a trade along with a tuber chassis and a while load of other parts. The have aluminum lockouts in the rear, and aluminum knuckles in the front. I'm used to axial axles so its definitely something new. Right now i have it just mocked up with random links and stuff i had laying around. I still need to get hardware for it also, the links and stuff are held in place with ziptires and random screws just to check geometry, wheelbase and if i want to continue with the project. I also want to lower it down, most likely will run like half droop to get the stance im looking for but keep some wheel travel.

Setup i came up with for front uppers, will be running a chassis mount servo.

Chassis shots.

The all important flex shot

Heres the body i want to run, not sure where it came from but it is a 2 piece haredbody with a bed with functional bed cover. Also cab has swing in mirrors and the headlights are made for leds. Take into acount it is just sitting on the chassis in the pics, i don't like how it looks with the high ride height.

To show the headlight and how flush the tires are with the body.

Thanks, i decided to go a different route on the body. I liked the bed too much, so its going on my scx10 and i also added leds to the body. Need to get a trans for this thing soon, already have electronics for it.

That chassis is pretty cool, I am doing a brass tube chassis right now for the first time. Inspiring!

That chassis looks good, would look good with 2.2s on it. TLT axles are good axles, Ive got one set I have beat on hard and there still going.
