Default Project Immolator -- Update 1/26

Here' my scale trail rig so far...





when it's finished I'll take more detailed pics but so far...

Custom stuff for axles
-alum servo mount
-alum blocks to convert to coil suspension
-alum over the servo top link mounts
-custom solid links with rear lockout

Tranny
-locked
-alum idler
-Made a alum plate to cover the gear/mounting point, and made a mounting point for the other side of the tranny with some L-stock alum.

still have a lot more to do....links, bottom link/shock mounts for axles, mount all the ESC, receiver, tranny, and batts, and maybe a winch.

it's a rough mock-up but you get a good idea of what it will look like

later

the wheels are RPM Torkers... I narrowed them on the inside bead.

This thing is getting heavy already but it's better having it overbuilt.

-- 1/29 Update --

4 link finished and front suspension mounted. Still need to hang the rear springs and mount all the shocks and the suspension will be done.

some articulation shots...





the rear springs are zip-tied in these shots and the shocks aren't mounted, but I'm expecting the same amount of flex with everything mounted.

-UPDATE-
Well got it done and how I think I'll leave it for the time being....












I changed the batt. to where it is int the pics, I originally had them mounted at the side plates as a saddle pack and it just made the chassis too wide and it really didn't climb to well (compared to what I see in the Oregon dudes vids)....now with the batt. up front it climbs WAAAY better, much more traction.

Only thing I think I'll change is how the side plates widen near the top, when desining the chassis I figured the links would mout up there, well it didn't turn out that was (links would be too short) so I'll trim those off.

All I need to do is disassemble, probably paint all the alum. flat black, paint up my Chevy body and make a 2nd pack and it's all good.

so fun to see it start out as jack shit and turn into something. RC Electric and crawling are 2 completly new things to me and learing how everything works was awesome and to see it all work together is even better.

Have you had any driveline issues? I mad a double female shaft for my buggy because they are about as long or longer than yours.

no, no problems. Those are stock pede sliders, there is about a 3/4" - 1" in the male shaft.
