Default "clock" your GD-600

Here's what I did with the Scorpion...from the Scorpion thread.

"Clocked" the GD-600 tonight. Also tossed the old motor plate in favor of a new plate for the single GD-600, although it's not in the pictures.

Before...


After...


The new "clocked" motor and gear reduction will give me more room to work and it lowers the C of G slightly.

Here's the beginnings of the new tranny plate...

Jason, looks good! I have my GD-600 mounted 180* from the way yours is in the first pic, and my tranny is rotated by 90*. It puts the motor below the tops of the tires. All of this is easy to do in a stock TXT frame, but since you have yours in that GORGEOUS tuber, it'd be easy to put your tranny wherever you want to, ha? Keep the pics coming, I always enjoy seeing others pushing the limits with TXTs!!! Vince

Thanks, Guys.

fullmod,
GORGEOUS tuber? I have John Boyer to thank for that. John does killer work. I'm just having fun with it. I had never planned on mounting the tranny any other way than with the motors to the rear. The reason for this was to allow the frame to keep the scale look while allowing me to mount the battery up front, under the center section of the "hood". Keeping the transmission upright means that the driveshafts won't interfere with mounting the hydraulic pump and vavles.

It's odd...stare at it for 20 minutes thinking...build for 5 minutes...stare some more...think... Takes forever sometimes. :(

Cutter,

I wish I could make a trip to Moab but I can't see it happening in the near future. I'm trying to work out something that would bring me in that direction, though.
