Default TXT Crawler.... Stone Cold Crawler... Full Tube Scale build

Well been working on these for awhile...
So far 3 have been made but this one took them all..

This is a TXT Crawler I just finished for Harley/CoffeeTableCrawler aka Josh..

Custom Frame, and body Servo mount and so on..

This one is a work of art and has 10" of articulation both front and rear at the same time.. WOW...

Has too many things done to count.. But Like I said this is a limited production model.. and so far 3 have been made with possibly a couple more for the Clods only to be done.. Might do one more TXT later but not right now..

What do you think?









More pics

I know the pics suck, but Josh will be taking some outside pics hopefully this week on his trip with it...











This also has almost 6 inches of ground clearance as well... OOO what a beast..

It looks good but you should lower the thing to 4.5" of GC which will lengthen the WB and correct your susp. geometry. The susp. links should be parrellel to the ground. What is the WB(wheelbase) as it sits?

I realize that, as for the center of gravity, the suspension was raise in the pics to show the underside better on the truck.

However using the links at that greater angle seems to keep it very stable.
When building it tried parallel and it seemed to try to roll over on steep inclines.. For some reason on this the greater angle helped to prevent that?

The wheel base is 16 inches roughly.

Thanks for the comments
Tom

Well I guess the pics just make it look short. I'll be building a tube chassis soon. How many feet did you use for yours? Do you know?

In those pics I had the suspension like I said jacked up to show a better veiw of the bottom...

In the pics the wheel base is 14" but when the link mounts are moved it drops the chassis and sets it up for 16 inch

As for the amount of rod used in this one around 25 feet of material..

The frame is a frame around a frame, making it strong and helps support the torque applied to the Tranni..

Thanks
