Default Solid Axle Front end Twin Hammers

I saw a guys Twin Hammers that he had put a ascended front axle in place of the IFS. It looked very cool and I have been searching and searching for more pics and how to link the axle to the chassis? has anyone done this? or have pics etc?

thanks guys

I know the guy that built it. I'll see if he can send me some pics. He did a bunch of 3D printing and chassis cutting to make it all work.

Here's some pics of the build. The last one is a pic of the prototype bulkhead. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I think it would be far simpler to just put a Twin Hammers cage on scx10ii kit chassis.

I built something kinda similar for my son. Scx chassis. I split the tub and mounted it to the chassis like sliders. Built in my son's tastes so it may not be for everyone.

LOL. I like it though. The Diesel engine sets it apart, IMO.

We watch those all the time. The Iceland foff videos also. I think it's from all the Rollin coal Prius videos he has seen.
