Default Truder's TXT

Hello,

I'm a French newbie.

I just want to thank you RCC forum and all his members for helping me to build my own crawlers.

So now I can show you my freshly rebuilt TXT:

about 15-16" WB
Savage shocks
Stock tires and wheel
GD600 with stock motor
TQ3 TX & RX
Super Rooster









Behind the axle front streering:



Hand made skid plate:






Here's how he looks now:

- 6mm shock tower on all 4 corner.
- ESC and RX plate.






nearly ready to crawl, I just have to do the TQ3 rear steering mod.

Thanks

Flex shot? Looks reminiscent of the "Roctapus", but I prefer this one, it's much cleaner.

Are you going to narrow your stock wheels and eventually cut/trim those tires ?

Nice build

Nice build
Yes, I will simple narrow first and maybe double if I can make some rockrings to hide the cut on the wheels.

Thanks again

Thank you.

I have the stock pinion and it's too fast but still have lot of torque.
I will buy a smaller one like 8 or 9T and it will be perfect.

Thanks BigBoy for the exemple

It's just what I need.
