Here's another project that I did recently. After getting a Utron on the pre-sale and, loving the way the IFS2 performed, I decided to build a 4 wheel independent suspension rig using 2 of them. So, I picked up another Utron as the starting point for the build. So, I started piecing together another IFS2 (before it was available separately). After mocking it up on the stock chassis I knew I'd have to shorten it and, I didn't like the big gap between the rails and the top of the skid. So, I designed my own which is just the front half mirrored and, had my laser department cut me some new ones. The way I did it, the wheelbase came out to 11.8" which is the same as the Bushido but, I didn't like how big it is so, I picked up a Team C Samurai body for it. Also went with some Amazon wheels and, Pit Bull Braven Berserkers. So, on to the pics. :)

Boom, built, done. Was this a one day build?
 
Okay, this is rather fascinating. How is your weight distribution with the battery in it? Like a twin tip, almost looks like you could bond together two truck cabs and make it look perfectly symmetrical and equally drive it that way.

:cool:
 
Awesome. Nice build. I'm about to start one with the SMS Rockalope chassis.

Good choice. I like the way he added holes for tube work if you want.

No. LOL
I just didn't get around to posting it on here during the process. Had several projects going on at the same time.

That's awesome! That project's been on my mind for a while, curious to hear how it performs.

Does pretty good for a shorter wheelbase rig. The 4 wheel steering helps. Plus, it does GREAT donuts. LMAO

Haven't really checked the weight bias. I need to get a 4 corner scale system one of these days. I'd guess it's pretty even with the motor in front and, the battery out back. I've actually thought of building a double ended body as a joke. :D I'm sure you can guess what I'd call it. LOL
