Awsome. Be sure to get some pics.

There are a couple pics on RCC of the axle mounted servo. Are you planing on doing that? If so could you make an extra mount? Just let me know how much it's going to cost. Please and thankyou.

So are you keeping the stock trans? Or swtiching to pede?

I seem to be hearing a clicking once in a while. I can't tell if its the diffs or the trans tho. Once I lock the diff's I shoul know for sure.

You going to put the 2.2 PPE chassis on this, or design one from scratch?

I will be making a new chassis from scratch for this one. I have the stock tranny but I have made a new motor plate and moved the motor to the side of the tranny instead of the top.

This is going to be a scale crawler, right?

I will try to keep it as scale as I can, but I still want something very good on the rocks too.

I may have to move this to the comp 2.2 section :angel:

Just need the parts fro the front axle to make it 4WD, and finish mounting the trans and servos.

Oh yea. Opps. Haha. Are you replacing the stock steering rods? or should I say stock paper? LOL. I did. Helps steering alot. and keeps things straight.

Servo on axle I assume? If so, like I said before, I'd like one. So if you could cut another when you cut yours, That'd be great. Lemme know how much it'd cost. Or I could just find more stuff to throw in the trade for the xc parts.

Just about finished. I need to make a skid plate for the bottom, front steering links and body mounts. I will mount the body a little higher (not much) than what is in the pics. I might get Maxx size tires and wheels, but I am not sure. Maybe just some Axial beadlocks and some Mashers. I should be able to finish it tomorrow and take it out for a shake-down run.

Here is the servo mounts:

Well took it out for one final shake down run before the GTG this weekend. Does pretty good, I might look at some taller tires (All Ts maybe). I want to keep it a 2.2, but Moabs and Mashers just seem so small on this thing. Plus I need a serious drop in my gear ratio. I might try to work on that tonight. Even with a 35t lathe motor (stock gearing)it is too fast for crawling. Sorry no pics. from the test runs, maybe tonight. :banana:

Well after it's first run on the rocks at Nelson's Ledges I knew it needed some more work. The stock WK shocks are just way to soft. I desided to put some stiffer shock on, and I desided to make some other changes too. The stock WK link and shock mount looked too weak so I made some new ones. I don't think these will break any time soon. I still have some more tweeking to do to the mounts, but there are pretty much done. I hope the next time this thing hits the rocks it will perform much better.

Looking good Todd. Those are indeed nice link mounts.

One of the greatest pleasures I have in life is "letting" PeePee finish better than me at a comp. Trust me, this is difficult to do.

Just hold on to the styrene until the next time I see you. I'm not in a big hurry for it.

PM'ed you about the mounts.
