DX3
Mamba 25 ESC
Holmes Hobbies 1st generation Revolver
Hitec 645mg
Stampede tranny
Fat Rock axle C's
Moabs/Mashers
HPI wheels
HPI Baja Bug body
5/16" Delrin lowers, HC rears, slight 60/40 set-up

I've got video, I'll try and get it uploaded/posted tonight. Testers feel free to post your builds. "thumbsup"

Great now i'm goibg to buy the next great chassis from bender. Can't wait to see how this chassi works, because i bet i'll be buying one from you bender.

tmyjeeper 02-25-2007 09:13 PM

That chassis is badazz"thumbsup".

Sweet! I was wondering how long before I could post some pics"thumbsup"

The SW3 may not be out yet but it is worth every penny. The highlight of the design for the dense is the two floating shock mounts. It looks cool but it allows the transmission to be removed without breaking the chassis and possibly your links down. 2 screws and you can easily change your motor out in the field or even change out the stupid plastic idler gear in the pede.

I will get my build up soon"thumbsup"

Looks pretty cool, I like the minimalist approach"thumbsup"

I wonder what it would look like w/ a Stealth installed!:lol:

rcnut38 02-25-2007 09:15 PM

Sw2
 
I actually think I like the SW2 better. Will have to see how the SW3 performs, keep us posted."thumbsup"

Nice design looks like it's pretty good. doesn't have as many shock mounting places as sw2 though

I was thinking the same thing about the Stealth. Looks great, though. I am coveting those Axial wheels big time!:twisted: Can't wait to snag a set!

The production version will have mounting holes for an R2. There should be plenty of room for a Stealth too, if you don't mind drilling your own mounting holes in the skid. As Slugz mentioned, the tranny pops out in 2 minutes with this design, and the production version will have even more room with a slender one piece motor side chassis plate. ;-)

Thanks for the compliments guys. :)

Looks good "thumbsup" Will it except any other tranys :?: The black plates with the machined end look awesome "thumbsup" "thumbsup"

The SW2 is a great TLT chassis IMO ;-) :lol: and works with many other different axle set-ups. The SW3 is a streamlined version of my Nationals rig, and designed specifically for a 2.2 comp rig running TLT axles. It still has a little adjustability for 60/40 link set-ups too.

crawler02 02-25-2007 09:28 PM

when will this awsome chasis come out and how much will it be"thumbsup"

dezfan 02-25-2007 09:30 PM

Bender, have any side by side shots of the SW3 and the SW2?

Unimoger 02-25-2007 09:33 PM

Aw , finally, I can post my truck too:lol: I have had my sw-3 for quite awhile and I must say it is awesome! I have had a sw-2 also and this one puts it to shame. Will post build pics very shortly. As soon as it is out YOU better pm bender and get one, you won't be sorry that you did."thumbsup" "thumbsup" "thumbsup"

86jeep 02-25-2007 09:34 PM

How narrow is it? it looks great cant wait to get one $$??

Cloak 02-25-2007 09:35 PM

Unless DJ has something under wraps, the NM crew always gets left out for these cool tests. :)

The sw3 will not disappoint..."thumbsup". Mine is extremely capable. The SW2 is an amazing chassis, just no as comp specific. Can't wait to see/ get the final production version Bender!"thumbsup"
