Yeah i'd love to see an R2 with bearings, wider gears, and maybe even 48 pitch gears.

alright ive got the lower links in place, the ride height set, figured out the length needed for the upper links and figured out a couple options on the shocks. not sure what i'm going with yet but it'll work its self out. its got the OG in it now because i forgot to swap it out before putting things together. if the chassis/trans look formiliar its because theyre out of my 2.2 blackjack... ive got another blackjack and trans waiting to reassemble the 2.2... its gonna be as low slung as possible and still have some awesome breakover angle.

My thoughts exactly. Link mounted shocks,which I'm not a big fan of,might work. May have to build some extensions off the chassis.

I'm currently running my rear shocks on the super at a pretty steep angle. To make up for that,I run 1000 weight oil and some nylon spacers on the shaft to severely limit the travel. Might do something like that.


Looks cool. I'll be curious to see how well this will run with supers. I'd like to build me a 14r pretty soon. I'd stick to my typical drivetrain though.

the shock mounting will be interesting, im thinking about doing touring car shocks, inernal sprung, all droop mounted to the links. its about 3 1/4" from the uppers to where i wanted to mount the shocks on the axles. and yes they would be heavily limited as far as travel goes, kinda like the 2.2 blackjack setup.

Apparently they don't like you either...

It's OK. When it out crawls your rig you will see.

I dont know when it'll be done yet, i still need wheels, tires, a servo, servo mount plate, upper links, and to mount the shocks. And money to build **** is kinda hard to come by as my g/f is making me pay bills instead of building crawlers... ****in priorities.

yea jon im still running the stock gears. ill be upgrading to the 4:1s as soon as i can.

what do you guys suggest for servo mounting? seeing as how my links mount on top of my axles i cant set the links on the axle tubes.

Have you thought about a chassis mounted servo? It'd be pretty simple to mount a bell crank on the axle. I've used bell cranks in my steering set ups many times. When space in limited,bell cranks can work awesome.

To bad you weren't using Twin axles,it'd be way to simple to mount everything up.
