BUZZZZZ Well got the Rescue Bee Rig finished minus one task but overall after the first build and testing and modifying I decided the rig should have just one winch in the front and DSM off road bungee pulls in the rear and use the 444 reefs smart winch that was in the front to steer the rear axle in the back as it is interchangeable between winch and servo pretty cool and also its a super low profile servo so I have full flexion on the rear suspension!!!

I was really trying to shed some weight off the Rig just for my personal liking I like to be under 8 lbs on a rig like this but overall I shed 1lb off this Rig and I run 3s and 4s and the 4s runs very smooth with more power to motor and servos and does not seem to affect the acceleration and punch which is nice also the torque feels very strong on 4s and the Holmes 800 dances on 4s and 15 volts and the weight is down right around 8lbs!

Im taking her out to the backyard rocks later for testing and get some pics and video but she is clean and all tested and endpoints front and rear set so some fun this afternoon.... BUUZZZZZZ.....

Hey Benp all good I used some 3d printed parts that helped the weight and the delrin gearhead wheels are light too!! But after a run yesterday where she performed really well im not crazy about the Pit Bull rock beasts on slippery rocks no grip so ill switch between wheels and Terroir!!! Also going to eliminate the front brass diff cover in place for an ARB diff cover and that should have me where I like it!!! The shocks need just a little more droop so that's what's left on this rig.....

The rear steering felt great too with only 40% steering in the back and 90% in the front it steered great and felt good!!! and it was a night run and the lights were great.... BUZZZZZ........

Aloha & Buzz...... Finally getting back to working on my TRX4 Honey Rig im overhauling my modifications and I have all the parts in so going to finish her up for this weekend!!!
Im adjusting the shocks with the long Boom Racing shock keys and got the rear axle servo swapped to match the front Holmes 800 and the metal servo axle mount to take the beating! the front axle gets a new diff cover and steering link and I eliminated the slipper so this girl is all locked up axles and spur gear now lets see what snaps.....

Finally ran the Rig yesterday even with the Holmes esc being a pain in the ass on reverse I had a decent run for 15 mins or so and having the 2 Holmes 800 servos make this thing on 4s really become a little too powerful!

I installed a new servo horn Samix and it stripped the horn clean on the front servo after 15 min on the rocks and the servo gear is like new!

These new Holmes 800 servos are quiet and very powerful and a little slower than my Reefs Triple 777 which I like on this rig....


BUZZZZZ.....

Haha. Damn!!!!

Iíve stripped a horn before like that but it was because I didnít realize there were 2 lock screws.

You definitely find the weaker links once any power is increased.

I just replied in your other thread regarding reverse.

Should get you squared away.

Hey no problem. Hopefully I had helpful info.

I replied to your other thread again with some more information regarding the BRXL.

Also, Iíd check out Vanquish servo horns. From what Iíve read theyíre supposed top notch.

Like I said, if you have weak links , youíre going to find them with that HH 800 servo on 4s.

Good luck

ALOHA BEMP..... I finally got myself a small PC laptop and was able to use the Castle USB Link to program the BRXL ESC and WOW what a difference and the Rig worked right away and is smooth like butter forward and reverse so those 70/30 curves feel smooth and am going to test this rig at the park and see what will break with the 2 Holmes 800 servos and on 4s the rig feels strong and with locked differentials and locked spur gear this thing will bee fun breaking it out!!!

I went ahead and ordered 4 Vanquish servo horns 2x 20mm for the rear servos and 2x 24mm for the front servos on this rig and my Bronco...

I got some 70mm In The Works RC chassis spacers and I beefed up the shock mounts so this thing should be able to roll down a hill and be salvageable....

So after I get the servo horns in its pretty much finished setting up this rig for the year and just going to run it and get a BUZZZZZ........
