Default Order Up!

I placed my order tonite and had it shipped priority air so Im thinking 2-3days max! Im excited I cant wait to get this thing trail ready! Ive been looking and looking and looking on how to make a scale rig. Ive found the chassis Id like to use and everything! It all comes down to money! Im hopefully selling my 1:1 scale roll/light bar this week so that money will be also going into this project! Im wicked excited! Ill keep yall informed on my progress and await your informative posts that always have a negative twist at the end!

-RR

p.s. I get into school on the 5th so Ill have access to any kinda cnc, lathe, machine tools in general that Ill need so Ima try to make something unique with some custom twists to it!

Being in the TLT section makes it obvious. Since he's talking about ordering a truck..

can you fit a 540 size can in the stock tranny? I have a rustler/stampede tranny already locked that I was thinking about putting in there... But what are the major advantages to the stampede tranny over the stock tranny?

The stock tranny will work with a standard 540 can. It's belt driven though, the belt will slip when the tires are bound. That's the reason they get ditched in favor of something better, like a Stampede tranny.

Or you could save the hassle of taking the original one out and put the pede one in at the start. Just cut the hole bigger for spur gear clearance and drill 4 holes in the stock frame. I just finished my 1st build and decided that was the best way to go from the start.

Try this thread for more help:
Well, my Stampede came in... (56K Warming)

I didn't grind my tanny down as far as he did, so I cut more out for clearance on the spur side. I can post pics later tonight if you need them.

thats a nifty idea... The downside of that is Im looking to build a scale rig and Im really pushing to have the shocks straight up and down over the front axel and Ima see about putting leafs and shocks one on each side of the rear axel like on my real truck. Ima try to make this original and something different. Itll be more ofa challenge but Im up for it!
