I hope to still finish the Grand hood. However I need to shoot some promotional video for a manufacturer with the truck and needed to get something on there quickly.

Any of you guys that have an RCC screen name, jump over to this thread and vote on the TTC rigs. This rig is #7, vote for your top 12 though.

Is this the servo you are using or only for mock-up? I need to replace the as-2 in my sons rtr. I'm RC stupid, but some reading pointed me to the hs-7995tg. Then I spotted this. At $32 it seems like an "affordable" option for a truck that just gets bashed around the yard/trails. Thanks

Sorry I missed this post. That servo was only a place holder. I use the Futaba BLS157 servos, over 500oz/in of power, but they run about $200.

I've been working on getting the rig prepared for the TTC even in Lucia, WA next weekend. I had to go through and waterproof everything first and also get a winch installed.

I am out of room under the hood for a winch but I already had where it was going to get placed in mind.

Knocked out a quick mount.

I was going to use the Hayok winch controller but got instant smoke out of it. So I went with a Mamba 25 I had laying around, already waterproof which is a plus!




Getting the line to the front will be handled by some 3/16" brake line. I will weld on some tabs for mounting tomorrow.






I will also have a fairlead up front front to keep the line from fraying on the edge of the brake line. I may still try and get a flare tool before I leave but thats low on the priority list.





I built a bracket up front already, I just have to braze on a gusset to secure the tube.

It's hard to say, HeyOK did contact me and said that I may have had an earlier version. He is sending me a replacement, which he did NOT have to do. Great service from him. I'll use his controller on the Doodlebug project

I've been keeping an eye on your build. Looks like you'll have a great looking rig in the end. I'm ready to see all the KOH '13 build threads fire up!

The TTC up in Oregon was a blast! A bunch of pics started rolling in, enjoy.

These shots are from Scale4x4Aliance (Pointman).

Truck Pull - Full pull both times. The last one was a little more eventful

A couple more from Pointman

Mud Pit - Fried my BEC about 3/4 way through and shut down the system.





Catching some air on the obstacle course! I finished this course with seconds to spare. I was the first one to complete it.
