Congrats on the new design Brad "thumbsup"
I hope your first production run is a large One, I have a feeling you're going to sell alot of these.
Put me down for One as soon as they're available.

Bender that looks like a sweet chassis. I have been very pleased with the sw2, if this one is better i may neeed to get one. Looks great, excited to see how this chassis changes rc crawling just like your last chassis!!

My setup,

Good old get parts anywhere bulky PEDE tranny!
16/84 gearing, 65 turn lathe (soon to be a 3013, this week!:twisted:)
Mamba Max esc (best esc period)
5645 hitec servo
Custom high clearance links set up you know who!
Custom high clearance skid " "
Fat Rock axle c's and battery/servo mount
Moab or Mashers. Rc4wd beadlocks.
Blue 1.5 rate springs up front
Yellers out back w/ the special torque twist sauce.
Lot's of hours testing, this set up has changed little since I got it together in October.

It practically drives itself! What more can I say? Any questions?

Thanks for allowing me to have the chance to test this chassis and I can't wait to see a few wup you this weekend Brad!;-)

Brad, since you milled my 2 down, what do you think is the biggest difference between the two?

You beet me just by seconds, anyway, that vid was amazing, some of the things it did were simply amazing, breakover point seems to be better.

While everyone is saying great chassis, im saying that i hate you. I just got my SW2 done. Just kidding. Looks soooo cool. I wish i had waited on buying the SW2. Im sure this one is even better, even though I never thought that was possible. I like the part where one side isn't even connected on the top. Awesome work."thumbsup"

No problem, thanks for helping.

I should have sent all but my test chassis out of state. Maybe then, I wouldn't be struggling so much this Winter Series. ;-) :lol:

I like the looks of this chassis, Brad. The SW2 is my favorite chassis, and I haven't seen any need to change it. My 9yr old daughter took 5th in the WARCRC summer series running it:!: That has got to say something about this chassis:lol: I just sold her old truck and built her a new black SW2 truck this week. I am currently building my new comp tlt, I want this chassis. LMK when they are available8)

Not much, this chassis is based off what I did to my Nationals chassis, as well as your SW2. The SW3 probably has more ground clearance, and may be a smidge lighter.

It'll be a bit before I have any of these ready. It's not like your SW2 is obsolete, now you have an excuse to build a Super or 14er. ;-) :lol:

Thanks, your daughter must have some pretty good driving skills to pull that off. "thumbsup" I will post up when I have some ready.

Norcal crawler 02-25-2007 11:12 PM

Seriously awesome.

Have to admit though, a comparison video of an SW2 and SW3 might have a bit better impact just because unless you know the terrain its hard to tell what is a major accomplishment and what isn't.

If that makes any sense at all.

Tanis 02-25-2007 11:27 PM

Watch one of his many vids, many of them on the same terrain/area. I can see the difference just watching this vid once. I'm going to go watch it again.8)

That does make sense, the video doesn't do some of the obstacles justice. I don't have a built SW2 right now. I might do something like that in the future though. ;-)
