Default Re: RCBee's TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Final Mods ETC..

Here are the Final Modifications on this comp Rig I want to accomplish before the end of the year so I can run the Rig through winter and spring while I get my SCX10 iii Finished and get my TRX4 Four wheel steer project going!!!

on this Honey Comp Crawler im going to change the servo to a Reefs 777 and the ESC to a Holmes BR-XL but for the moment im going to finish all the mods to the axles and keep using the HobbyWing QuicRun 1080 ESC and the Reefs Raw 500 Servo because they are running so solid right now im going to wait a month after testing all the MODS...

on the final part of this build:In the Front im going to Install a Yeah Racing alloy Axle Housing to the front axle which already has the Hot racing Overdrive Differential Gear and differential Case as well as the Traxxas heavy duty Steel Gears R & L....

in the Back im going to overhaul the axle and install the Yeah Racing alloy Axle cover and the Traxxas steel gears and also the Hot Racing differential gear and diff case....

also I have done really well with Fast Eddie Bearings and RZ SCRewz

I have had the front Hot Racing Overdrive gear and case as well as the Traxxas steel out put gears and it runs beautifully had to break the gears in after a couple runs they are smooth so ill post a video once have both sets of axles installed and running smooth..... Buzzz.... Buzzzzzz.....

Default Re: RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Day Body Paint Job

So you have seen the Purple Lavender Chevy half Cab Body on this COMP TRX4 Build Thread I have been using that now is complete with lights and im going to make another cab for daytime use with the same set up with the Hot Racing bumper mounted in the back and 2 tone color White Top and Yellow Bottom on this Paint Job im using the Pro-Line 1978 Chevy K-10 Clear Body for 12.3" WB Scale Rock Crawler Body and im Taking my Time and applying 5 Coats of Gloss Sun Yellow Spray paint and 5 Coats of White on the Top of the Cab and the Backing on the yellow and 5 Coats of Modge Podge Flexible Sealant....

and today the Temperature went up to 72F in Nashville so I started to spray the yellow and got 4 coats in so hopefully tomorrow the temp is good and i can finish the yellow and start the white but it will take about 5 days total to put it all together but it will be a solid flexible body and ill keep posting the picture this week of the progress and also the axle housing changes Hoping to have her ready by next week for an extensive crawl on the rocks!!!...
Buzzzzzz.....

Default Re: RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler New Cab Body Paint part #2

Buzzz Again.... Another beautiful warm day here in Nashville so the painting on the Second Body for my Honey Comp Crawler continued and I got all 5 coats of yellow and was able to get 3 good coats of white for the Cab roof and backing the yellow for a smooth finish! Now what's left is Flexible sealant will be using Modge Podge its used in paintiing for canvases but has been my go to for sealing car bodies keeps them strong flexible and prevents chipping.....

Can’t wait to see it mounted up!

The contrast of the white roof on the yellow seals the deal for me

Default Re: RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler New Cab Body Paint Job Part #3

Ok so this is #3 of 4 parts where I am painting and modding a daytime body on my Comp Crawler TRX4 the paint job was going beautifully and the days have been warm and that morning I had taken the body out and warmed it up for a couple hrs but the paint can was in the shade cold so when I sprayed the last coat of white it bubbled up and messed up what was going to be a perfect paint job.......
but I went ahead and wiped it down let It dry and put 6 coats of white to get it flush with the other parts of the white roof so hopefully when im done sealing it,
it will look good!!!!!
Buzzzz.... Buzzzzzzz......

Default Re: RCBee TRX-4 Honey Comp Crawler Build Finished But Not Done! ARRGGHHH... BUZZZZZ..

ok here is the final product running the new gears in the back and the alloy axles and it runs smooth but it is now too heavy!!!!! you can never win !!!! but you can try again and I think ill win eventually so im pretty sure in my case its a simple solution remove the brass differential cover and the should let the weight distribute evenly to the axles and wheels still having more weight in the front than in the back!!!!! Buzzzzz........ Buzzzz.........
