Right rear and left front are stiffer with 80 weight oil, and the other two shocks use 40 weight. Torque twist is very minimal.

The only items purchased other than the truck were the motor, and GD 600, and the borrowed softer springs. Everything else has been recycled from the original kit. Oh, and the wheels and tires, oh, and the Maxx 2.5 driveshafts.

This is a good basic TXT crawler.
can....share the servo mount dimension? with me? cool crawler...i got the same thing..

I don't have that servo plate anymore, so I cannot give you any dimensions.

I used thin plastic as a template, got it all figured out, then transfered it over to a piece of aluminum and cut and drilled. Very easy.

Hi guys! Need help. Can anybody give me the lengths of the upper & lower links, Front & Rear, to make my TXT 14" or 15" wheelbase?

Thanks in advanced!

Trimmed TXT chassis. Just like what was done with TXT in the pictures on the first page.

BTW, is that using stock links? What's the wheelbase?

Yeah those are stock links. Bottom on the top and drill a hole for them in the chassis, and the tops go to the bottom. It's about a 15.5 inch wheelbase, so there ya go. I think it says all that in there in the beginning of that thread...

Thanks for the reply. I think I missed some info from the first post.

15.5" is just enough for me. I'll just copy the setup from this thread then.

Thanks EeePee.

Other then the stock esc is there another esc out there that will control 2 540 motors? I'm getting my truck tomorrow and I need an esc that will control both stock motors for now until I can afford the Holmes Hobbies Cobalt puller 7t.

There certainly is. What I would do personally is run the two stock motors in series, and use a Tekin FXR ESC. But, if you prefer a faster truck then run the motors in parallel, but then you'll need a beefcake ESC, one that can handle about a 13 turn motor, like Castle Creation Mamba Max.

Either one is great, and will handle that sweet Holmes Cobalt.

Bottom one is series. The one with the yellow wire connecting the two together.

The original bottom links are now the top links, did you catch that part?

They eventually developed about a half a turn of twist to them, which actually presented no problem what so ever.
