Default Monster 2.2 Comp Rig...

Well, heres a new MONSTER 2.2 TUBER I've been working on...with front DIG
Thanks to BRONCOBASS for this awesome chassis





Thanks RCP CRAWLERS for having everything I needed (exept for SS Ring and pinion!) and MONSTER ENERGY DRINK for keeping up late to work on this crawler!
Now lets see what I can do with it....









Some parts...

Some grinding, sanding and paint...

Built some BEEFY axles, RC4WD SS Straight axles and straight axle adapters...

RCP CVD's, FAT ROCK Axle C's, RCP Aluminum Knucles, Twisted Design servo plate...


I made the lower links out of SS and the top links out of Carbon (more weight on the bottom, less weight in the middle)





Dig...(OFF)

Dig...(ON)




Just about done
~John

I made the whole panels on the computer, using PhotoShop and 8 1/2X11 transpanrency film, plastic for panels, there are no stickers exept for the SoCal sticker in the front and on the servo!
After panels were assembled, I shot clear coat to protect them from water and major scratches, we'll see how it holds up, the bueaty is I have the art work saved, so when they become to trashed, I can just print some more!

DAMN has to be one of the cleanest tuber's I have ever seen. Increadible attention to detail and very clean work. You will love the " dig " too, cannot imagine mine w/o it now.
