Default Greetings!

Hello fellow RC enthusiasts, greetings from southern California!



I have a few RC projects on the shelf and one in particular has started staring at me lately, mainly because everytime I try to climb a rock either a stearing rod pops off, suspension link fails, or the drive axle slips...TXT-1.../sigh.


Lotsa research and time thinking about it has me braking down and Modding my ride, still not ready and have a question I have not seen answered.


Almost done (right) with most of the mods, just have to move the servos me thinks.


I know alot ditch the cantilevers and move the shock mounts to the axles, but what if you replace the rod with another shock. What I did was use the stock shocks I had replaced and mounted them to the axle brace next to the lower link mounts. So basically it just looks cool ;)


Has anyone ever tried this or is this just a silly venture of a man with too much time on his hands?

Thank you for the thoughts

Default Update...

Update for you crawlers out there, I have gone with more of a traditional setup, the 8 shock system was way too loosey goosey.



Got the drive shafts all mounted up, went with the rc4wd punisher II the 150+mm was perfect, just had to bore the holes out 1mm to fit up. Next up is fabricating the skid place, going to try and re-purpose all the cut parts off the chassis to make mounts and for the servos as well.


It's doing fairly well so far me thinks, have a multilayer flower garden to crawl around in. Needs a skid plate for sure.


Okie Dokie, will keep you posted on updates...

Default Meh...

Update take 2, got the skid plate all mounted up and picked up that extremerc servo mount kit and am kinda bummed. Best I could do mounting the servo up is save about 1/2 inch really. It mounts onto the axle brace mounts unlike the one in the sticky whick looks to save at least an inch.


Think it's a runner now though, it was a brand new kit so am just gonna use the stock motors for now, will upgrade to hand turned and a gd600 when those burn out.


Other than that, will post a couple new pics and hopefully someone can chime in with some feedback on things I can do better.


Stay Safe...

Nice - I still have a TXT-1 that I turned into a crawler.. Main mods are Revo Shafts, 4:1 Axles, ThunderTech CVD axles. I am always modifying it...
