Default Warhammers

This TW was procured via a trade on FB.

It came with GCM upright shock mounts/forward battery tray, GCM bell crank steering, HR rear trailing arms, Pro-line shocks, aluminum body panels, rear MIP driveline and rear sway bar.

It needs some parts replaced; bearings, front CV's, cage, Chubs, knuckles and make the front locked diff into an open diff, all of which are on their way to me. Until then I started the refresh preliminary rebuild/refresh phase which is now complete.

So far I have;
-Locked the trans into 2nd gear
-Removed the shift servo and its mounting plate
-Installed STRC Yeti trailing arms
-Installed VP Ti Wraith lower 4-links as the rear upper links
-Installed a Hot Racing Bomber front sway bar as the rear sway bar
-Installed STRC SCX10 rear shock hoops with droop mounts for front suspension
-Installed MIP Yeti rear drivel line
-Installed CNC Custom Wheels 1.9 deep dish beadlocks wrapped in 1.9 KLR's.

This rig is running on a Monster Mamba Pro ESC with an Axial Yeti stock 3150kv Vanguard motor conmected to the trans via 32p steel spur and pinion combo.

The servo is Savox running off of a Castle BEC and all lighting is 12vdc remotely operated.

Future upgrades will be:
-VP Knuckles and Chubs
-Hot Racing aluminum axle tubes, upper and lower rear arm and link mounts
-SCX10 main transmission
-Pro-line Yeti rear shocks
-MadDogRC round-housing front LED headlights
-Punisher hood and side panel graphics
-Distressed American flag on fast-paced panel
-Fast Eddie bearing throughout
-New front CV's
-Rebuilt front diff open with 500k-1mil wt. diff lube
-Scale fuel cell and fuel lines
-Scale radiator
-Scale fire extinguisher

I will post final pics once details are installed in a couple weeks.

First vid is the Jump Test.

That thing looks really cool, really well built, and really fun to drive!

The extra shock mounting on top of the GCM shock hoops strikes me as very a creative way to increase your shock options.

Thank you very much, it is a fun truck for sure.

Mostly I did it due to having no limiting straps and needing to limit the arm travel a bit so the dogbines didn't where on the very ends of the cups or pop out.

Maybe a noob question, but what are chubs? Also, how do you access the battery location?

Naw, we are all noobs at some point.

The battery is mounted and accessed via the functioning reverse opening hood.

Chubs are C-Hubs which are what the steering knuckles attach to.

So was doing some work on the rig today and I noticed a bunch of oil all over the right rear side.

The stock Axial Yeti 5" blew its bladder apparently the day I tested the jumpability.

So next on the list is a set of Pro-Line 5" Powerstroke shocks along with some VP Chubs and knuckles.

And since the Pro-Line shocks are a little larger in circumference I will most likely need to rework the rear swaybar as to clear the shock springs... again. LOL

I thought I'd add some pics of the finished rig minus a few small tweaks I still want to make...

It looks really nice. Personally I'm a sucker for old school round lights but I'm in the process of adding scale parts and light mounting systems to thingiverse. Let me know if there is something u are looking for.

I'm adding bolt in rear running lights/fan tonight
