Default Fricker08ísÖ. Now Twade984ís Vs4-10 Phoenix

Well Iím a little late to the party but here we go! Nothing too exciting or different than the others on here but what the heck right?

I plan on building this thing stock except for the wheels n tires. Nothing against the stock tires, besides not being licensed and a tad narrow they work pretty good on the surface I run. But Iíve got a set of vanquish method 101 v2ís and some proline km3ís in predator Iíll be running to start.

Electronics will include Castle Mamba X with a 2850kv slate motor.
Holmes shv800 steering servo
2 Amazon low profile 120oz servos for shifting duties.
All setup on my dx5c with sr515

Enough chin wagging.. hereís some pics

Itís about timeÖ

Iím curious to hear your thoughts on the build, I think trying to wire everything up nice was the most difficult part.

Also, what are your plans for painting, particularly since itís monsoon season?

Actually the weather shows 61 and only 20% chance of rain SundayÖ I may break out the hair dryer and hope for the best.

Ha, if you are late then I must be playing hookie. Look forward to your thread. I will start one for mine at some point as well. First I want to build a good portion of it so I have something to post

Congrats!

Following along to see what you have planned for it!

Also, nice new workbench! I have the same one and it has been great! Sure beats the kitchen table!

Thanks guys, Iíve been slowly working on my space and the Phoenix. Got both of the axles built last night and then the chassis tonight. So far so good, only thing Iíve had an issue with is the rear axle brass tubes are loose. Not sure if I didnít install them all the way, Iíll be going back in and checking. Not sure if I mentioned it previously but Iím also swapping to stainless where I can.
Iíll be tackling the transmission tomorrow

Lookin good fricker! My rear brass tubes went in loosely until the last lil bit. Then i had to press them in, about the depth of the outted bearing. Now my fronts never did hit the snug spot where they needed pressed in like the rears did. All in all, they went together great

Well I got the shocks built, only one shock collar gave me an issue but I found with some pressure pushing straight down while turning them 3/4 threaded on pretty easy. Decided to go with 50wt because thatís what I had handy. Got the links built and the axles mounted under the chassis.
I spaced about checking the rear brass tubes.. Iíll have to do that before finally assembly. Anyways, Iíve got a chassis finally. Iíll be tackling the transmission tomorrow.

Iíve got to say, for all the moving parts this transmission was fun to put together. I stole the aluminum stand offs and motor plate from another vfd I had laying around. Unfortunately didnít have any small m2 stainless for the trans but I may swap that out later.
Iíll be finishing up electronics and all the plastic trim tonight so Iíll find out if I have a noise but hoping not.

Hey thanks guys, I mounted up sliders and some other bits last night. I intend on making it a runner tonight but we will see. Got some cheap Amazon low profile servos for shifting duties that are not waterproof so I split the cases last night and added some dielectric grease hoping to keep some moisture out.

TB, thatís my next projectÖ Iíve got some plans for that including quite a few parts hanging on my board. There will be some posts on that this weekend likely

Well Iíve got a running chassis, now Iím just waiting for a break in the weather to get some painting done. Also need to put some finishing touches on the wiring.
But Iíve got the dig and overdrive both working in 3 positions, esc tuned for now and everything spinning the right way. I failed to realize my shift servos are only rated for 6.0v and Iíd hate to add a bec but Iíll likely have to for the steering servo thatís rated up to 8.5v.

Thanks guys!
Yea dino, when I ordered those servos I had a Holmes Shv800 installed and it wouldnít have mattered. But I have a project in the works that is going to benefit from that servo over this rig so Iíll likely be adding a bec. Good thing the wiring mess will be hidden but my ocd will know itís under there.
Oh and donít be fooled by my benchÖ it becomes a mess. But this setup is much nicer than the dining table I traded out. I try to clean up before I take pictures lol

Well here we are, no where near what I wanted to do for paint and I rushed it so Iím glad most yíall will only see it in pictures and itís going to get driven anyways. I will say the little door handles that hold the interior in drive me crazier than the shock collars.
Looking forward to driving this thing whenever that may be
