That looks good fullmodtxt. What is your center clearance at? I can see that you did not cut the chassis there but it looks like you have at least 4" of clearance.

Thanx Badger! You've got a good eye! I have 4.25 inches under the chassis. Other measuremens: 16 inch wheelbase, 14 inches wide, and 10 inches tall at the highest part of the truck (the top of the cantilevers!).

See.. here's when Tamiya should have made the TXT axles offset(both to same side, other than how they are) so this swap/modification would work easier. Kinda like the Twin/Mad Force axles..offset.

Your rear driveshaft angle looks good but your front has a bit of an angle to it. Driveshaft angles are my main problem with my rotated tranny but I'm also using different axles.

Looks good ..... gotta like the thinking outside the box for us crawlers

Hi guys, and thanx for the comments. Toyo, the driveshaft angles were a major concern (aren't they always with these things?). The rear shaft is fine, almost straight with the centerline of the truck when you look straight down over it. It does go downhill from the tranny to the diff, but it is still plenty comfortable.
The front is offset to the side, and on the same downhill angle as the rear. The tranny is about 1/2 inch rearward of the center of the truck, so the front slider is longer. The length makes the angle more bearable for the universals, but the extra length also makes the front slider easier to twist. The rears always twist first for me anyhow. It's a tossup, I guess.
