After I got bored with that I re did it.



I have finally ended up here.
I want to build another truggy though.

Here's a few pics of my new 2.2 comp rig:




Specs:
MFM Black Widow chassis
Hot Racing MOA's
2X Holmes Hobbies Torquemaster 45T motors
Castle Creations Mamba Max ESC
Castle Creations BEC set at 6.0V
Airtronics 94780 steer servo 423 oz/in at 6.0V
Losi 7.4V 3300mAh 2S LiPo
Electronic front/rear dig (not finished)
Losi Rock Carver tires on stock Axial Beadlocks (pictured)

Here's my Losi 1.9 Comp rig:




Specs:

I moved the battery to the back axle and weighted the front wheels. It will get all the typical mods as breakage occurs or time and money allow, including:
Montana Scale Designs 1.9 comp chassis (not out yet)
Montana Scale Designs 1.9 4-Dyce aluminum beadlocks
Holmes Hobbies mini Torquemaster motor
Tekin B1-R ESC
Upgraded steering servo
Hot Racing alum. upgraded knuckles, C's and rear lockouts
new body to replace that butt-ugly stocker
and whatever else I can think of

thanks, but it aint nothing special. I never did that before, so I didn't know how to do it right. I did cut 2" right down the center, but I cut the scoop out 1st(didn't want that narrowed) I tried a couple of different glues with no luck, so I taped the 2 sides together and used a hot!! screw driver to blend the two sides together, then came back with some crappy body fill for models. I works but looks shitty IMO wish I knew what works best for gluing those bodies together, would have turned out great. but hey, its a driver, not a shelfer right?

Yeah I know.

I just got it a couple of weeks back. These coils are uncut. I've messed with the suspension a bit from how I got it and got a ton more travel and it seems to climb a bit better as well. Also got it lowered down from 3" to 2.5 @ the belly.

I'm contemplating going with an SWX chassis and getting a truck body. A bit lower CG and I think my girls would like it even more if it looked more familiar.

For glueing the lexan bodys look for a glue called "mc" we use it in the sign industry to glue lexan and this shit sets like concrete. I will get the actual name and a supplier and post it up tomorrow after work. Here's a shitty poser shot of mine.
