after looking closer I have another idea for this metal bracket that will be more rigid.

I’m about to JBWeld, always open to suggestions, please elaborate.
I know we both have drawers full of half built special brackets lol. Good chatting and thanks for the suggestions, I like it!

Shizdialed! Hole in servo mount just happens to be in the same spot I drilled the axle pumpkin! Take 2mm length off the 2.5mm buttonhead screw, littel JBWeld under the aluminum piece, tighten screws and bam!
Thanks again to Rockhugger for the suggestion!
In stock online, unlike the previous link.

Picture updated, I removed orange spacer, trimmed screw down couple millimeters, trimmed the 2.5mm screw that goes from inside axle housing and through the cut up G-Made servo mount (red peice) and added 3mm flat washer (bent to curved surface of housing) between housing and red bit.

Me too, thanks for the input, I wasn't really 100% happy with the steel bracket I made!

Had a great time at Crawl for a Cure 2019 with Rockhugger, Erica, Ed, et al! Start of the 'competition' trail:




One of many gates, started the day about 5am and arrived home very late, had an awesome hike (great exercise and tiny trucks!), lots of tacos before the afternoon raffle drawings,




Raffles!








Edit: Updated front axle picture in posting above for the final front upper link mount brace!

Yes, it was! Thanks, I've got more pics, but these turned out the best.

Just received new slider outer pieces from BPC to accomodate the wide K5 Blazer and K10 bodies, fits great! Thanks Bruce!
