Talking Hawaiian hammah time

Wasup guys here's my vaterrable from Hawaii


As we all know are we all never leave the trucks stock... Lol so I had an old (proline) C10 body laying around that was used on my wheelie king that I chopped up. I also tossed on some integy light buckets and custom a wire harness with resistors to run off 3S.

Here's a small mod... I took the original battery/ESC banana connectors and chopped them off so you can replace the crappy ones on your stock motor.

After a few runs I've noticed that this vaterra was very capable of crawling but it needed to be geared down.
I removed the stock spur and noticed that the main shaft hole is fkn tiny! Well after searching around I found this from Losi.

This Losi gear I found at a local hobby shop just plugs right in.

That's quite a jump on the spur. how does she handle with that gear reduction? I was thinking of going that route to go more towards crawl.... Has it completely nerfed your top end?

I swapped mine to 86/22. It does take away a lot of top speed, but if we really wanted that we'd get SC's. We want crawlers. I run the Roc412 3100kv & top speed is not bad still.

Agreed. I just like having a versatile rig. Already have other crawlers coming out my ears.

Haha just a small jump ;) I changed the pinion down to 26T but I need to drop it down maybe 23T. It still has way to much speed HAHA stay tuned for the power plant pics.

So here's a few pics of my wraith drive shaft mod and custom upper links

Just keep in mind that on the wraith MIP drive shafts you need to shave a little off the ends

The clearance front the drive shaft and the truck tub is perfect!!

Moving on lol I can't stand the front suspension on the vaterrable!
So.... I took it all out haha

I ended up brazing up the front end.

Slash power strokes were way to FAT. I replaced them with king 90mm shocks

I started making a rear shock mount that pushes the shock out so they don't got so much gansta lean on them hahahaha

Chop chop chop! The rear end was getting stock every where so I chopped off about an inch, moved the tire mount up and drilled the frame.

Kings mounted front and rear. 110mm king in the rear with a droop bushing limiter/70w oil, fronts are king 90mm with 70w oil.

Now we're talkin! You think about producing and selling that shock mount system for the front end? I'd buy one.

How are your front shocks working out. That was the first thing I did and I didn't like how it cycles, The lower shock is out too far out on the arm. I'm looking at making a mount farther in on the arm. so for right now I'm back to stock.

I love the way the front end articulates now, much much more free and the front doesn't feel so dead no more. The power stroke shock didn't work so well but when I tossed in the dual rate shocks there was a big difference.
