Default "KNEEL BEFORE LORD VADER"!!! ***Added TOPLESS Pics and VIDEO!***

Just got back from the Mall with these Glamour Shots. What do you Guys/Girl think of the New Lid? Mettalic Black!

*I also got a new RCRockGear B2 Chassis with custom JTAM BootyFab Plastic 3 links, RC10 aluminum shocks up front, 2/3 A GP 1100 Pack(CHEAPBATTERYPACKS.com) mounted on top of the Servo.

It's got about 70* of articulation (Plenty for me!), and it's smooth as butter. My Rig's last chassis would NOT go up the first hill seen in the Vid at all, this time with the B2 it went up first try!

*I added some "Helmet Off" shots and a "LINK TO VIDEO"

Hope you Guys/Girl like it!

















Here's a pic of the B2 and the Stock TLT Chassis plates side by side




Sorry to the people who's post got deleted..... OPPs

Thanks Magic, I've been running those shafts forever, I never noticed any slop from them.

Hey thanks Kid, to be honest I haven't even run a full pack yet(Easter Family stuff), so I'll have to get back to ya on that. It seems from initial testing to have just as much punch as the big cells, infact it's way to fast with the Mag Mayhem on there right now.

I like the set-up you got - 3 link set-up which would be better for snow and mud driving I bet! Which links, shocks do you got? I kno that those are ofna titan braces i read that in your post so i will get some of those- How are they mounted?

I'm playing with some RC10 shocks right now, but I still like the stock Maxx shocks they're cheap, tough, light, they don't stick(even when the oil leaks out they still move pretty easy) Did I mention they're Black?

The links are untested, If I were you I might wait to see how mine work out. They are smooth and work well but you never know they might break! They were not on the easy side to fab either, I used a dremel and eyeball to cut them up. They are attached to huge Ballends from a stock Clod Chassis(the balls that the Lower Stock Clod arms attach to), again stuff I had laying around. A Maxx A-arm might be a better route for the 3 link. We''ll have to see if mine hold up to the torture of our Sunday outings.

I definitely like the 3 link concept, and I'd like to give some recognition to Dave L. /S-n-T, his Evil Black B2 has a badass Unstopable 3-link and was a BIG inspiration for this Beast of mine.

The best tip I can think of after the build is: The extra BIG and Beefy bottom links(Ofna Titan Upper Braces) at the Chassis end were binding on the chassis bigtime(small balls), until I added those little Brass tapered spacer/washer things to get the links off the chassis. You can see them if you look close in the last pic. They loosened everything up in a Good way.


Hope this helps... let me know

The black is cool but whats up with those chrome axles!!!

BTW - the more I see the Bulu's - THE MORE I WANT TO BUILD ONE.......

Maybe I can just buy a stock TLT and start playing with it........

Oh but then I will need some Mashers.......

And then I will need a Super Rooster.......

Then if I got all that I might as well buy a Bulu2.....

But for a Bulu I will need a Pede Tranny......

So for now I guess I better not ... but my wife did say I could build her a Crawler, and I already got a Clod..... huummm decisions....

You should really trim it out with some black. Looks kind of stark.
